JSI Tip 8337. Windows Media Player does NOT display some DRM (Digital Rights Management) rights on the License tab properly?

After you set the BeginDate or ExpirationDate value on a Windows Media content file in Windows Media Player 9 Series, setting the PlayCount right causes the License tab in the Properties dialog to display:

s play(s) remaining

If you also set the BurnToCDCount right, the License tab displays:

s copy(s) to CD remaining

A bug in Windows Media player doesn't allow for value substitution.

NOTE If you DO NOT set the BeginDate or ExpirationDate value, the other strings will be properly formatted.
