Error description

  • If a .wav OLE is inserted on either Windows XP or Windows 2003
    Server clients, it will not be possible to activate them on
    
    To recreate:
    
    - on either Windows 2003, or XP, use a client to insert a .wav
    OLE (e.g. from C:\windows\media\)
    - open the module using a client on Windows 7 and try to
    activate the OLE
    
    OLEs inserted in Wordpad on XP/2003 can be successfully
    activated on Win7.
    
    An incomprehensive test with other types suggests that .wavs may
    be the only format affected.
    
    This is not recently introduced.
