Re: pc laptop

If you are behind a dial-up or cable modem, you may not be getting the required speed for the current Windows Live dl app/setup. At any rate, you cannot give up with trying, because i've heard reports of taking up to 20 tries to get this! It is an MS problem, so keep trying! Problem Solved! Thanks!

Xbox connected through network cable to pc ! what do i need to perform on pc through my wireless usb port connected to go online

If you are running Windows Vista on your PC here is how you can route your XboX360 through your PC/Laptop in order to get on Xbox Live Wirelessly:

1. Set up a Static IP address in Vista. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Network & Sharing Center -> Manage Network Connections

2. Right-click on Local Area Connection and go to Properties

3. Double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IPv4)

4. Set the option to "Use the following IP address"

IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway: blank

5. Just to be safe, also set the options to "Use the following DNS Server Address"


(You may use your ISPs DNS entries also, these are just the OpenDNS ones that should work for everyone)

6. Under the "advanced" tab, you need to check "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection."

7. Right-click on your wireless connection, go to properties, click the "advanced" tab and check the same box to allow other users to share the connection.

8. On your Xbox360 go to the network configuration menu and enter the following settings:

IP address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:


Now you should be able to get on the internet with your Xbox as it will be using your PC/Laptop's wireless connection.

When i push play on my hunting unlimited 2010 game


I am not entirely sure what is causing the problem, but I have a feeling it may have something to do with you using Windows 7.

The reason I say this is because the game does not officially support Windows 7. If I'm right about this, then I might have a solution for you.

Maybe if you run it in compatibility mode for XP or Vista, it'll work for you. See the icon on your desktop for the game? Right click it and select Properties. From there, click the tab that says Compatibility. Then look where it says Run this program in compatibility mode for: and check the box, then select either one of the Windows XP's or the Vista's. Click apply and then okay.

See if that solves it. If not, you can also try running it as an administrator for good measure.

Good Luck :)

If it doesnt have media center, just right click and share any folders you want to stream through your xbox.

Also might be useful to open file and media sharing in network settings.

if your system is not at least at this spec the game probably will not run

X-Box and Vista Premium vs. Med. Center 05

Unless there are aspects of Media Center itself which you require, Windows Media Player can easily be used as the source, or Windows Media Connect.
