    Hi all,

    Good day. When I click on the "Online Stores" next to the Sync button the
    screen "No Available Online Store", There are no online stores available for
    your location" appears. I'm in Malaysia by the way. If being here means that
    I can't use the service then what should I do in order for me to able to do
    so? (besides moving out of Malaysia) I tried going to the media guide website
    and opening it in WMP 11 (Ctrl+U) however it did not work at all.

    Also I can't click "Check for Updates" under the help menu bar in WMP 11.
    Please help..

    Extra notes: The version I'm using is 11.0.6002.18005

    Hi Andrew,

    I've checked that box and I still get the same message "No Available Online
    Store", There are no online stores available for your location". I've even
    changed the system locale to English (Malaysia) for everything under the
    regional settings except the keyboard as there was only English US or English
    UK of which I chosed English US.

    Hi Andrew, I fixed my own problem. Thanks for your help I guess. To everyone
    else, in order for Media Guide to work at Control Panel > Regional and
    Language Option > Administrative > Change System Locale > English (United

    Take note that your current format may need to be English (United States)
    however your location can be set at elsewhere.
