    I did a quick search of the forum for this issue, but didn't find any posts
    that were relevant.

    When I play a MIDI file in WMP 11, it mutes my MIDI channel on my soundcard
    when WMP exits. This is a reproducable bug that occurs everytime. My system
    configuration is below.

    Windows Media Player 11 build 11.0.5705.5043
    Athlon64 x2 4200+
    Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard
    Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 Platinum
    Creative Audigy Drivers ver. 02.08.0004
    DirectX 9 (June SDK release, running in retail mode)
    Windows XP Pro SP2 w/ all updates

    Just thought I'd let the devs know. Thanks, and keep up the great work.

    It doesn't appear to affect things if you stop playback first, then exit.
    It also mutes MIDI when you pause/resume, which is rather annoying. I'm not
    sure if requesting every key up works too well in that instance, though, so
    I'm guessing there's good reason for the workaround...
