JSI Tip 5502. How can I prevent Windows Media Player from processing HTML scripts that are contains in Windows Media files?

The default behavior of Windows Media Player is to process HTML scripts that are contained in Windows Media files.

After applying MS02-032: Windows Media Player Rollup Available, you can disable this ability: 

1. Copy /Paste the following to a PlayerScriptCommandsDisabled.reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences\]
"PlayerScriptCommandsEnabled"=dword:00000000

2. Merge the PlayerScriptCommandsDisabled.reg file with your registry.

To re-enable HTML script processing:

1. Copy /Paste the following to a PlayerScriptCommandsEnabled.reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences\]
"PlayerScriptCommandsEnabled"=dword:00000001

2. Merge the PlayerScriptCommandsEnabled.reg file with your registry.

NOTE: If the PlayerScriptCommandsEnabled Value Name is missing from the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences key, script processing is enabled.
