    I'm using WMP 11. Since loading this player I haven't been able to play
    protected wma files (i.e. files that use a licience). When I click to play a
    particular song it launches me into a window to download an update for the
    security components of the software but unfortunately that process always
    fails. Get message:
    COOD275E Specified Server cannot perform required operation

    WMP cannot download media usage rights because the server is not available...

    I also tried the Security Component Upgrade site (i.e. contained in other
    posts in this newsgroup I viewed.) When Invoke the upgrade it always fails
    and ends up locking up the exporer which I then have to kill in task manager.

    What can I do to resolve this problem. Is my only option to go back to the
    previous version of WMP I was using?
