    The string below returns a file not found when trying to play an NPR stream
    when windows media player is selected in Vista using IE7 - this is a new
    problem that occured after a program installed - perhaps NERO did this. I
    uninstalled NERO, but the problem persists.

    NPR audiostreams which are enabled with this command:

    javascript:getMedia('WESAT', '24-Mar-2007', 'ALL', 'WM,RM') and call this


    will play fine in Firefox wm. RM also works. However, when using IE7, RM
    is fine, but IE7 cannot not find the page when WM is selected. This is a new
    problem - originally WM played fine. The firewall is not the problem.

    Vista DX says the proxy server cannot find Port 9100, but this is a bogus
    error since I am not running a proxy server. The command for Port 9100 is
    enabled: ie. http://localhost:9100/proxy.pac in WM7 in the script config

    NPR has four tests that it lets users run for diag purposes. Here are the

    mms:// - FAILS[0,0]&wmsext=.asx -

    Any help would be appreciated.
