Windows Media Player and Direct X. - a warning!

I havn't been able to take any screencaps of avi files using this player since I updated DirectX. I have acceleration turned all the way down in both the control panel and the player itself. I tried a nornally very reliable third-party capping program and still can't take caps in this program. Some other file types (wmv) still seem to work.

This is just a warning to people who like to cap using WMP: DO NOT update DirectX.

People who have only recently aquired WMP may also find themselves in this situation since the new version requires that you have installed the lastest version of Direct X.
