Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Disabling Windows Media Player in Windows Sideshow (Vista)
So yep. Exiting out of any playing video or song in WMP will not work, I have to kill the process directly. From my extensive Googling of the matter I've found this is due to Windows Sideshow, which has WMP as a gadget that it does this for. Unfortunately I can't remove it from this stupid Sideshow thing, nor can I edit the settings anywhere for it.
