Hi.
I upgraded from WMP10 to WMP11. I had My Playlists in WMP10 (wpl cache files) saved to D:\Music.
I deleted the Music folder from drive D before installing WMP11. Now every time I delete
that folder, WMP11 re-creates it when I open the player again. When I create a new playlist in the player,
I am, however able to save new Playlists to a different folder, and access them no problem. But WMP11 insists
on creating the empty folder Music in Drive D which I deleted several times.
Somehow, D:\Nusic has become the default folder for the My Playlists wpl cache.
I temporarily fixed the problem by running WMP11 from a batch file. I added the following line to the batch file
to delete the unwanted folder upon exiting WMP11. "rd /s d:\music" This works, but I'd rather it not be necessary.
I'm ok with editing the registry, is there a way to change the default Playlist location?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.
