Can't install PC extender software for Xbox extender!

Discussion in 'Windows Media Center' started by kevinmcginnis, Apr 16, 2005.

  1. I've upgraded my Sony VAIO RZ54G to MCE 2005 with their supplied upgrade disc
    & I'm unable to install PC extender software for Xbox extender - keep getting
    error message that I don't have 2005 installed, but I've verified that it is
    indeed installed. What gives?

  2. What version number and build date do you see inside Media Center if you go
    to Settings --> General --> About Media Center --> Software Version?

    Also, please install Update Rollup 1 for Windows XP Media Center Edition
    2005 (available at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/) and then try
    installing the MCX software again.

  4. Are you familiar with reg edit?

    If so, could you check the value of
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media
    Center\Ident? If not, I can give you a quick tutorial...
