Windows Media Player error : file in use

By WMW4 ·
Hope anyone can help me with the following :

I have several windows media files (.wmv) on a Apache webserver. When workstations (windows xp sp1, media player try to open the file, Media Player returns with an error: unable to open file, file in use.
Filerights are ok. I moved the files to an IIS server, but with the same result.

I hope anybody can help me.

Thanks !

sure sounds like a rights issue. you have had that workstation place, rename, delete etc some files there (on server) to prove everything ok? what is your exact media player error message please. can you play avi's or any other known good file? can you play them from box with media player 10?

It is indeed a rights issue :
On the workstation a local useraccount with userrights has this problem, but a local useraccount with administrator rights can view this movies.
