"Configuration settings for your region could not be determined" RRS feed

  • (Vista Ultimate--upgrade from Windows XP MCE)

    Can anyone help with the following problem?

    I cannot get media center to work. When I run it from the start menu, I get:

    "Setup Error -- The configuration settings for your region
    could not be determined. Please restart and try again."

    It never connects to my TV tuner card. I've searched the KB with no luck.

    Win XP MCE worked fine. All my hardware is Vista capable and in Device Manager, all my hardware is
    working properly. 

    I am running it as the administrator.

    I've checked the region settings of my DVD drives, and the system and they seem correct for Eastern USA.


    Any help would be much appreciated,

  • Allright,

       I didn't figure out what was causing this but there is a solution. Put the Vista install disk in and re-install windows. It must be a problem with migrating settings from XP MCE.


    It works fine now!

  • Will re-installing vista cause you to lose any files or setting?
