    I believe you may have a couple of options here.
    http://streamripper.sourceforge.net/sr32/
    will give you a detailed guide on how streamripper works, or alternatively you may be able to right-click the file on the server and "save as" to your HDD instead of playing it. If you can do this, try downloading the demo of Sony Vegas 4.0 which will then allow you to import the saved file into the program where you will easily be able to strip the audio out and save it in any format you choose. I just tried this out on a different wmv file, and it works a treat. The site said "streaming only" but a rightclick download worked for me.
    BTW - this app also lets you strip out the audio & video files on these free CD's that get given away in certain National Newspapers in the UK. You are only supposed to be able to play them 4 or 5 times. Rip the file & resave as a new one works nearly every time.
    If none of this works, try recording the analogue outputs instead, or else if you have a player that is VST compatible you can use SilverSpike's Tape-it plugin.
    This can be found at http://www.silverspike.com/Download/download.html
    Hope this helps a little, and welcome to afterdawn. There are a lot of very knowledgeable & helpful folks here.
