Full Screen for Media Player --> Catastropic Failure?

P: 5

On my windows form, I have a button that on click sets fullscreen property to true. At runtime, however, I get a "Catastrophic Failure."

Here's my code:
Private Sub playSongFS_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles playSongFS.Click
Dim addTemp As String

If (ComboBox1.SelectedIndex = 1) Then
addTemp = "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Music\Sample Music\Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 (Scherzo).wma"
ElseIf (ComboBox1.SelectedIndex = 0) Then
addTemp = "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Music\Sample Music\New Stories (Highway Blues).wma"
End If

Dim player As Player
player = New Player
player.PlayerControl.URL = addTemp
' player.AutoScaleDimensions = New Size(SystemInformation.PrimaryMonitorMaximizedWind owSize)
' Dim temp As SizeF = player.CurrentAutoScaleDimensions()
' If the player is playing, switch to full screen.
If (player.PlayerControl.playState = WMPLib.WMPPlayState.wmppsTransitioning) Then

player.PlayerControl.fullScreen = True

End If
End Sub

Can anyone give me any thoughts as to why this is happening, and a possible solution? Or does anyone have any alternate solutions I could try?

What happens after you get this unfriendly error?

Quite a bummer to have to deal with that:-)

Does the system do anything else, does it shutdown...

Let us know what else may be happening if none of the above.
