WMP11 BUG: Advanced Search doesn't work with ANDs

Post by Mike Willi » Sat, 20 May 2006 00:55:24


The Help file indicates syntax for this under the topic "How do I
perform advanced searches in Windows Media Player?"

I tried the following searches and got no hits where I expected hundreds.

artist:vangelis composer:vangelis
albumartist:vangelis composer:vangelis

also tried the AND versions:

artist:vangelis AND composer:vangelis
albumartist:vangelis AND composer:vangelis

The OR version appears to work.
artist:vangelis OR composer:vangelis

Hi Mike,
is this composer or artist on your computer? If not then there will not be
any hits.
If you are looking for a song not already in your library then you may want
to try Urge or another online source.

As I said "I expected hundreds" of hits on my collection, and that the
OR version works (ie the artist or composer has to be there).
