Linksys Music Bridge

    Question

  • I have windows 7 installed on my laptop. I tried installing Linksys Music Bridge (WMB54G).

    It got installed. Now the problem is even though I click on the ICON (Linksys Music Bridge) nothing is happening.

    Also, I have another question? Everytime I try to reinstall Linksys Music Bridge software, instead of installing it says uninstalling.. If I need to reinstall linksys Music Bridge how can I do it... Does it have anything to do with registry file. How can I remove it from registry???

    Appriciate an answer.

  • Hello Gurvinder,

    Before uninstalling you may wanna try running it in compatibility mode for Windows XP or Windows Vista.  You can do this by right-clicking the exe file and select troubleshoot compatibility.

  • From the Linksys/Ciso Forum:

     

    To make it Work I follow the same steps to make work in Vista SP1 but exists one step more.

     

    You need to install the sound drivers manually on the device manager; the driver is in the folder C:\Program Files\Linksys\WMB54G\Driver

     

    Go to Action -> add legacy hardware.

     

    Then I disabled CmFlywav.exe under the Boot tab of Msconfig then rebooted.  Per previous instructions on this forum, each time I start Win 7 I have to execute these 2 commands in the following order:

     

    C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Linksys\WMB54G\Driver\cmas2ds.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Linksys\WMB54G\Driver\CmFlywav.exe

     

    a batch script that you can put into the startup folder, and it works very nicely.  Here is what you'll need to enter into the batch file:

     

     

    start/b/d"C:\ProgramFiles\Linksys\WMB54G\Driver"cmas2ds.exe
    ping localhost -n 2 > nul
    start /b /d "C:\Program Files\Linksys\WMB54G\Driver" cmflywav.exe
    ping localhost -n 2 > nul
    start /b /d "C:\program files\linksys\wmb54g" wmb54g.exe
    exit

     

     

    If you don't know how to create a batch file, follow these steps:

    Right click on the desktop -->new -->text document

    Type in the string using the text above

    Save the document, close, and rename it to whatever you'd like.

    Change the extension from .txt to .bat

    Copy or move it into your startup folder.

     

    There is some extra stuff in there, I put in a short pause between each file to make sure each app has a chance to do its thing before the next one starts. Hope it helps you all save a little bit of work!

     

     All I had to do was modify the "Program Files" directory in your 3 lines of script to "Program Files (x86)" for my 64 bit system and it works great!  My Music Bridge is now working beautifully on my desktop & laptop, both running Windows 7 x64, Build 7600 RTM.

  • DGHoffman thank you very much for your instructions, I would just like to make a correction:

    Here is the script I use for my x64 Windows 7

    start/b/d" C:\Program Files (x86)\Linksys\WMB54G\Driver" cmas2ds.exe
    ping localhost -n 2 > nul
    start /b /d "C:\Program Files (x86)\Linksys\WMB54G\Driver" cmflywav.exe
    ping localhost -n 2 > nul
    start /b /d "C:\Program Files (x86)\Linksys\WMB54G\" wmb54g.exe
    exit

     

    Basically some spacing problems corrected and now it should work easily.

  • So I followed the instructions above on my Win 7 Ultimate x 64 system.

    I have a sound playback device that says speakers - linkysys Wireless Music Bridge. It is selected as default.

    The WMB54g setup page says it it connected to the network actively.

    It is connected via RCA l/r to the reciever, and the reciever is set on the appropriate input.

    No sound from Stereo speakers. 

    I do have sound from my PC speakers, even though they are not set as the playback device.

     

    Any thoughts? 

     

    P.S. The batch file is working and the utility appears to be running, at least in services, although there is no visible ultility or program. Is that normal?

     

    I never used this device before Win 7, so I don't know what it should look like when working.

     

    Thanks for any help.

     

    Josh
