I just upgraded to OS 10.4.3 and I can't get any of my .wmv9 files to play. When I click on a .wmv file, Windows Media Player tries to open but immediately crashes.

I have a version of popwire wmv-9_export_component installed...maybe that has something to do with it?

this is a truncated version of the huge error file that shows up:

WMV 9 on 10.4.3 is fine.

Try a re-install of the player after ditching everything WMP related.

It's possible but unlikely that Popwire is causing the problem, if you had said you had Flip4mac installed that that would be a different story.
