I have had this problem for almost 4 months now and I have been back and forth over the internet doing as much reading as I could to try and sort it out but I am failing miserably
I upgraded my computer to MCE 2005 from XP (clean install) so that I could hook up my Xbox 360 and play films from my computer on the TV in the lounge, I ran through all the instructions and as soon as I tried to run the software to connect to my Xbox, my PC crashed.
So I ran through every thread I could find on the subject, I removed net framework 1.1 and ran the clean up tool, I opened fast switching etc opened up all the ports basically everything I could find or everything Aaron Stebner wrote. I posted numerous threads on the Xbox forum to which no one replied. I finally got a response from Aaron who told me to extract the extender and install each component individually. I did this and managed to install most of the components, I now have extender resource manager, and the extender file sharing on my computer but as soon as I try to run the set up to connect to my Xbox it crashes again. I have set up the file sharing programme to allow my 360 to connect to my PC and I even had a little balloon pop up to say I have an Xbox connected to my PC. But when I click on the icon to run the setup it just crashes again.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help, I feel like I have wasted loads of money and time on something I still canít use.
I am using Media Centre 2005 service pack 2 with roll update 2 and all the net frameworks 1.0, 1.1 & 2.0 etc.
I have a wired connection from my pc to my Netgear DG834G v3 wireless router, and this is wired to my Xbox 360.
