WM Encoders fails in PULL mode, but works in PUSH mode

This problem occurs when a Windows Media Player update corrupts the Windows Media Format installation.

The problem relates to a windows bug which has corrupted the cashing setting for windows media. To fix this strange bug delete the corrupted files. (SAM/SOS will regenerate them)

  1. Browse to
    c:\Documents and Settings\%user%\Local Settings\ApplicationData\Microsoft\Windows Media\(your player version directory).
  2. Delete all files found in this folder.
  3. SAM/SOS will create the files.
  4. Problem solved.
