Getting error faulting application wmpnetwk.exe with WHS 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been having issues with windows media player network service on my windows home server machine. I continually get the following error:

    Faulting application name: wmpnetwk.exe, version: 12.0.7601.17514

    Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7601.18247

    Exception code: 0xc0000374

    Faulting offset: 0x000000000000c4102

    Faulting process id: 0x149c

    Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmpnetwk.exe

    Faulting module path: C:\Windows|system32\ntdll.dll

    (I believe) as a result, I cannot successfully access my home server from my Xbox 360, or new DLNA-certified Samsung Blu ray player.

    I have tried to run sfc /scannow and it finds no problems. I have verified the service has started and is set to automatically start at boot. I have restarted the server.

    If I install the Serviio add-in, streaming works fine.
