Received the [above] error attempting to play a video on my [non-touch] Windows 8 Professional box at home (Dell Precision Workstation T7400) using the Video app from the Start menu as shown here in figure 1.
The actual type of file that throws the error is a Windows Media Audio/Video file (.wmv).
Zune is also installed on the system.
Plays fine in the Windows Media Player [desktop] app.
