    Default Server Execution Failure in Windows 8

    Hi guys,

    My laptop has been running with Windows 8 operating system for a long time. It has been working smoothly since the installation. Recently, whenever I try to play a song or other things of .mp3 format, or .avi or something of the sort with Windows Media Player, it hangs for about 10 seconds, and then the computer will indicate me "Server execution failed." I thought I have to reinstall the player. But is there any other better ways?

    Pls do me a favor!

    Thanks very much!

    Now you have to stop the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service and check for the issue, to do that you need to follow the steps provided below.
    1. Control Panel -- Administrative Tools -- Services. Find the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service, open it, click on Stop to stop the service.
    2. Close Windows Media Player 12 if it is started.
    3. input %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\ to Windows Explorer to find the folder.
    4. Move all files in the folder to another place as a backup.
    Note: Move files in the specific folder will reset database.
    5. Restart Windows Media Player to see if we can add files to Library now.
