Windows Media Center... Media Center has stopped working... Close the program

Media Center comes on monitor... I select Live TV... Broadcast starts and 5 seconds later... photo will gray out and window "Media Center has stopped working" is displayed.  Part audio will continue to broadcast.

Sometimes of Media Center... Live TV will work without this message.  Tried a few bugs from Microsoft's web site without success.

Help..! Thank you...

Hi herbyderbydo,

1A what difficulties have you tried Microsoft?

2. does come with any specific channel?

This problem occurs if the process of updating Windows Media Center (Mcupdate.exe) cannot access the Windows Media Center data store.

You'll need to rebuild the Windows media center data store and check if it works.

Run the tool fixit here automatically to rebuild the data store.

You can also try manually as follows:

1.

Exit any running instance of Windows Media Center.

2.

Delete the file mediaCenterDataStore.db. By default, this file is located in the following location:

%SystemDrive%\ProgramData\Microsoft\eHome\mediaCenterDataStore.DB

To remove the file, follow these steps:

one.

Click Startand then click run

b.

In the Open box, type run , and then click OK
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click continue

c.

In the Open box, type %systemdrive%\programdata\microsoft\ehome , and then click OK .

d.

In the details pane, right-click right mediacenterdatastore.db and then click Remove .

e.

Click Yes to confirm that you want to move the Mediacenterdatastore.db file to the trash.

3.

Start Windows Media Center.

If the previous step fails, check the event viewer to determine the cause of the problem and post here

What are the information in event logs? (Event Viewer)

http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-Vista/what-information-appears-in-event-logs-Event-Viewer

Let us plug in which is also used by the channel causing the media center stopped by right clicking on the channel.

I hope this helps!

    Hey bellais

    Run the sfc/scannow command.

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/929833

    Use the (SFC.exe) System File Checker tool to determine which file is causing the problem and then replace the file. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click principally madeprograms,Accessories, right-clickguest, and then clickrun as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or clickallow.
    2. Type the following command and press ENTER:
      sfc/scannow

      The sfc/scannow command analyzes all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with appropriate Microsoft versions

    If that does not fix it repost in the Sub forum

    Manage your photos and videos: play, burn, import and more with Windows Media Center, Media Player, or other programs.

    My husband told me that he has always had difficulty to play the DVD on WMP.  I discovered that it would not play because there was a problem with the audio.  I couldn't find the solution to this problem.  However, we were able to play, burn and rip CDs until what we downloaded Windows SP2 for Vista Home Basic (32 bit), two days ago.  Since then, we have not been able to open the app, and the WMP network sharing Service.  I tried to run the Setup program, but it is said that there is a newer version of WMP and it will not replace or repair.  I wanted to see if I could find a solution to this problem without having to resort to reinstalling Vista or restore to an earlier point.  I also noticed that when the WMP application has been updated July 15 to the new version below, there were times this video Web sites would not play and we would have to restart the computer so that we can read them.  More information on apps not working do not are below:

    I uninstalled the multimedia functions (under the contrl Panel > prgrams and features) and reinstalled - no fixed not

    I stop Streaming Windows Media Network Service and deleted all the files under the directory of the %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media - new player did nothing.

    I ran SFC and although he finds something it does not solve the issue.

    I am now at a loss for what is the problem. Nothing has changed on my system for ages (beyond the Windows updates) so I think it's a corrupted file, but I do not know now how to solve this problem. Help someone? Books in the library and existing content once but I cannot add new records to the music, photos or film libraries as it says there is a problem.

    FYI - using Windows 7 Home Premium (32 bit)

    I have not ran the regsvr32 cmd as administrator, so no luck there and I do not use WMP plugins of any kind. To be honest, I don't use WMP as the machine is purely a media library if 99% of the time that I can access via the MC7 10 ft UI.

    In any case - gave up on it and completely reinstalled from scratch this weekend and its working fine again. I just hope that the problem does not happen.
