Windows media center network sharing service

Hello there!
I hope someone out there can help me.
I'm running Vista Ultimate, and whenever i try to steam content via my '4od' (meaning '4 On Demand') manager (a free 'catch-up' service offered by Channel 4 here in the UK) my Delivery Service Manager device stops working. I've done a bit of digging, and i've found that my windows media center network sharing service is to blame. Whenever this tries to start (i.e. when i click 'stream' or 'download' in the 4od application) it crashes right away, and the 4od download/streaming manger along with it.

Ive accessed the windows media center network sharing service and tried to set it up so its on 'auto' mode or 'manual' mode, but nothing works - it keeps crashing when press 'start' in the devices properties manager.

Should I try a re-install? If so, where can I get it from, because ive looked everywhere and I cant find it!
Many thanks,
Scott

Network sharing center won't stay open


just been fixing a window vista laptop with problems

Microsoft stopped supporting windows vista years ago
no updates or upgrades
you are at base service pack one
and computer should have been updated to service pack 3 years ago
from service pack 3 a windows 10 upgrade is possible

try an ethernet or usb wifi connection .
.see if the computer will run the way you want it

any windows vista computer is a x32 bit system
with upgrades can run x64
x86 is the current

if you are running anything higher than 32 or x64 software the computer will be slow sometimes freeze or shut down

vista came out same time as and dial up internet
and early broad band

vista can run office 95 but windows 2000 is stable

Help needed !!! opened Windown media center earlier today, and now even with all applications shut down, the file wmpnetwk.exe is constantly using ~ 50% of my CPU. I Have ended the process with task...


Wmpnetwk.exe is a media player network sharing service. It is annoying and useless(as you have already noticed).
Click start->Run->Type in "services.msc"(without the quotes). Then click on the services tab, and uncheck the box next to wmpnetwk.exe. Click apply, close the configuration utility and reboot your computer. If you ever want to start the media sharing service again you can start it from windows media player.

Hope this helps,
Sai.

Media Center file types


Yes, file extensions, .gif, .bitmap, .jpg are case sensitive. Just like if you tried to save a word document as .DOC then the file would look like test.DOC.doc. Change case and it will be fine.

go to control panel>>add and remove prgrams>>click on add/reomve windows components on the left panel.
make sure you have the system CD.
put a check mark in "networking services" and "other network files and print services" install the addtional services.
check the share volume, make sure you have given the user rights to access the drive.

Media Center file types


Try to rename one of the pictures to lower case .jpg. Normally this isn't an issue, since Windows is not case sensitive on file names. Somewhere along the way you may have changed the association.

Another thing to try is to right click on a JPG file and select Open With / Choose Program. Select the picture viewer of your choice and select Always Use. That should set the association permanently.
