Summary0012159: Rating zero stars sets incorrect standard tag property
DescriptionHelp says:

WMA Rating
Yes [full stars] (SharedUserRating)
Non standard [Half-stars] (SDB/Rating)

(which I read to mean that standard values such as zero should use the standard tags field WM/SharedUserRating as required, so to interoperate correctly with other apps using this standard tag field, apps e.g. WMP, Explorer) but zero stars sets an incorrect WM/SharedUserRating value.

TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build1712

Setting zero stars fixed in build 1712. We save zero to SDB/Rating too, to differentiate between zero stars (bomb) and unknown rating. In fact, SDB/Rating always contains exact rating (even the full stars), WM/SharedUserRating contains only values supported by WMP (i.e. only full stars).

What is now the effect on WM/SharedUserRating?

0 stars writes 0 to WM/SharedUserRating (instead of 1), so it will display zero stars in WMP etc.

What "etc."? In Win7 Explorer, that gives one star:

To get zero stars in WMP 12 and Win 7 Explorer, WM/SharedUserRating must be absent, not zero.

Then "Resolution fixed" is inaccurate.

I guess I should not have combined these two issues as one Mantis entry. I've now moved the SDB/Rating issue to a separate Mantis entry.

I don't know how you achieved this, but WM/SharedUserRating = 0 means really zero, one star is 1. Tested on Windows 7 explorer, WMP12, all show correctly 0 stars.

But ok, Win7 Explorer deletes WM/SharedUserRating tag in case of zero stars, now we will delete it too. From build 1712.
