Media Center Problems with .Net 4 RRS feed

  • Question

  • XP Media Center Edition 2002 SP3

    After installing the optional .Net 4 and Client Profile, the Media Center TV guide wouldn't download.  A process called ehrec.exe took 50% of the CPU and stayed there.  I then uninstalled the 2 .Net 4 downloads and it works fine.  Is there a problem with .Net 4 and Media Center?

  • Hello,

       I have exactly the same problem. I have seen that the program loads "mscoreei.dll" which comes from .NET 4 (C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\mscoreei.dll) but I don't know how to force the program to use only the old CLR ...

  • Sounds like it's not just an isolated incident.  Don't know how to report it to MS, unless these posts do it.

    I just left .NET 4 removed.  I doubt that there are many, if any, programs that use it.  I imagine any programs that use it will tell me.  It would be nice for MS to fix it, in any case.

  • Actually, I had 2 .NET 4 listings in Add/Remove Programs.  After removing both of them, I noticed that Microsoft only offered the one .NET 4 client profile, so I reinstallled it and now MCE still works.

  • Which version was reported mscoree.dll?

    probably 2.0 still

    Can be confirmed by looking at these log files

      %WINDIR%\WindowsUpdate.Log

     %Windir%\logs\cbs\logs.log

     

    Start by navigating to this folder and see if trustedinstaller.exe is present

    c:\windows\services\TrustedInstaller.exe

     

    And then try running the .net 4.0 installer again.

    Hopefully this works for you!

    I find that re-installing Windows Installer 4.5 usually solves more installer issues. Assuming this is Xp. And remember to post results or mark this as solved if helpful
