  • Ah ha! Traveling to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\PlayReady and renaming mspr.hds to whatever you want, deleting it, moving it or whatever... fixes the problem.

    Thanks to: http://forums.silverlight.net/t/197653.aspx/1 for the problem on Win7 etc.

    Since I didn't use any DRM up until then, nor silverlight, wonder if its been exasperated by Win8? Anyone else have the problem?

  • Wow! Thanks. That worked.

    And I was ready to RE-install windows 8 to see if that fixed it.

    Again. THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the post.

  • What if I don't have the PlayReady or mspr.hds folder/file?
