My main system still runs XP SP3 and use WMP Plus 2.5 without any problems here, so there must be something else going on. Do you also have SP3 installed? Are you also using WMP 11?The first error is related to Party Shuffle so that immediately explains why the Party Shuffle playlist remains empty. I'm not quite sure yet what exactly the cause is though.Regarding problem 3, I assume that you're using WMP's Search field at the top? Does it make a difference if you start typing immediately or if you click in the Search field first?
Which columns are you referring to, and what exactly do you mean with open/edit screen?What happens when you try to choose the columns? Do you get an error message?
I am using SP3, with all the lastest updates. Likewise for WMP 11, l. And yes, I am using the search field at the top. Whether it crashes immediately or not seems to depend on whether I search for something with spaces.
Also, I am having other problems with WMP. First off, I can't get my portable device to use MTP, which is unfortunate because this device was never able to effectively detect added/deleted/changed files Mass Storage Class mode. When I just now tried to fix this by reinstalling WMP, I got an error saying something like "Windows Media Player Install could not complete." I am wondering could these problems be related?
When you open an album, a screen appears which allows you to edit information listed in columns (as - Composer, Contributing Artist, Rating etc.). You can choose the columns shown from the Organise Layout panel, but album, artist and genre will now only appear horizontally by the album art as total album entries. Previously you could right click on a vacant part of the top bar to add these columns vertically so that they could be edited individually. Nothing happens if you right click now, not even an error message.
Just a thought, if the disc number is 1 of 1 (and only 1), I don't think it's quite useful to display the disc number as part of the track number...
Also, without the plug-in, in Artist or Album view, I can press a letter and it will jump to the section starting with that letter.With the plug-in, pressing a letter puts you automatically into search mode so I can't do that anymore.

Why not just remove the disc number from the track?

The plug in is active and other features of the plug in are working such as changing the title bar of WMP to show the song playing. Please Help.This is most likely because the latest release of WMP Plus! doesn't really support Windows 8 yet. The soon-to-be-released WMP Plus! 2.5 will support Windows 8.

If the plug-in is loaded, make sure that the song that you're right-clicking is in WMP's library (this is required for Tag Editor Plus to appear).
No, I've never heard of such a problem so I would like to do some further troubleshooting. Are you using the latest version of WMP Plus, 2.5?What's the file type (or types) of the affected music files (MP3, WMA, WAV...)?If you click on the little red circle next to a song and select Error details, what's the full text of the message that appears?Do you still experience the problem if you disable WMP Plus by unchecking it in the Tools - Plug-ins menu? (press Ctrl+M if you don't see the Tools menu).
On the error details message, please click the Web help button. What's the URL of the web page that it takes you to?Do you have any other plug-ins loaded in WMP? Does the problem go away if you uninstall WMP Plus again?
You can uninstall WMP Plus at Control Panel - Programs - View installed programs.The problem with Web help is that you immediately get redirected to another URL that contains less info. So would it be possible to click Web help again, but this time with your Internet connection disabled? This will prevent the redirect from happening and allow you to retrieve the full URL with all error details. Thanks!
