    Hi,

     

    The issue can occur if Windows Media Center components are not registered correctly.

     

    I suggest trying the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.

     

    Register Windows Media Center components

    =========================

    1. Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories, right-click Command Prompt and click Run as administrator.

    2. Type the following commands, press Enter after each line.

     

    REGSVR32 ATL.DLL

    CD C:\WINDOWS\EHOME

    EHSCHED /UNREGSERVER

    EHSCHED /SERVICE

    EHRECVR /UNREGSERVER

    EHRECVR /SERVICE

    EHREC.EXE /UNREGSERVER

    EHREC.EXE /REGSERVER

    EHMSAS.EXE /UNREGSERVER

    EHMSAS.EXE /REGSERVER

     

    Can we open Windows Media Center now?

     

    Hope it helps.

  • Media Center will not properly start until it is configured.

     

    There is a configuration wizard for Media Center that you need to run first.
