Messanger Failure while loading Media Center Setup Wizard

My Media Center stopped working after the SP3 upgrade. I had to upgrade otherwise I won't be able to get security updates from Microsoft. I was able to fix some of the Error Messages except for Messenger Failure. It says "Media Center was unable to open Messenger. Please make sure that Windows Messenger is installed in your system". I have Windows Messenger installed and updated in my system. I don't understand why MCE cannot recognize or open it. Can you tell me what the problem is?

    I don't think that is a good solution, I was able to solve my problem without uninstalling SP3. The only solution was to apply a registry patch. Right now, my Media Center is just working fine.

SP3 issue. you can uninstall SP3 and then hide it so that you will continue to receive other updates. Every 2 weeks you should unhide it and try another install. If problem persists you may need to reinstall OS from disk. Follow directions closely so that you won't loose any files.

    Glad you resolved the issue. Where did you learn about patch?
    My media center hadn't worked until I finally got Vista SP1 which took over 18 months to finally install once I reinstalled OS.
    A lot of my clients have had issues with SP3 that get resolved when I reinstall the SP, thus my reason for suggesting to you.
    Regards

I know I need to upgrade my flash player and a 11player won't work so how do I find a player number 9 for my cell phone its a android


Hi,

To upgrade flash player, your mobile should have appropriate hardware to support. If you are trying to upgrade from market,it upgrades. But won't work. So you need to uninstall the upgrade and switch back to the older version of flash. Otherwise upgrade the required hardware for Flash to work.


Thanks,
Mr.Maduraikaran.

Windows XP Media Center edition... get a ''Cannot Find Windows Messenger'' error when starting up media center... wouldn't bother me - but my son just got an XBox 360, and it cannot connect to the PC due...


This should a simple fix to enable Messenger if you have your XP disk handy.

Go to "Add/Remove programs"

You will see an add/remove windows components, or something similar.

If the Windows Messenger box is already ticked, untick it and OK it then exit out and go back to this.

Now Tick the box. It may ask you to insert your CD.

Once done, OK it again and restart your PC.

DONE.

If this still causes issues, try downloading Windows Live Messenger (about 175MB) and run it directly from the website. Saving to yourPC has issues and often does not work.

I'm not really clued up with Xbox and other game boxes, so all I have done here is to activate Messenger in one format or another on you PC.
