no mystery then.
original ssd now wiped and will be repurposed
I uninstalled all that i could and I kept a backup of that registry if anyone wants to look at it, its 359MB though lol
@Bigal, I've sent you a PM
I wrote a little about this a long time ago here: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...ible-alternatives.61061/page-425#post-1389238
the reg file zips down to 25mb, before handing it over what personal info is in there and how to easily remove it
i have pinned a shortcut to WMC on the taskbar, on my old SSD "same windows version and 8.8.4 WMC version" when i right clicked on the icon there would be a shortcut to the guide.
It is not there on my new SSD, how do i get this back?
I have tried with the shortcut pointing to;
i use @j.c.f. 's laucher with;
C:\launcher\launcher.exe -8,-32,1936,1119 C:\Windows\ehome\ehshell.exe
C:\launcher\launcher.exe -8,-32,1936,1119 %windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe
and yes it did work with that
I finally have the black screen issue fixed on my build. Posting in case anyone else is fighting with this. I am not sure which one of these steps (or combination thereof) resolved it, but I’ve been black screen free for a week now, so I’m calling it fixed. In my case, I was getting multiple back screen with cursor hangs daily requiring a hard reset.
Disable App Readiness service
Disable fast startup
Disable Startup Apps in Task Manager
Regarding the startup apps, I disabled everything in the list that was not related to MCE or ISO playback.
So at this point I have a finally have a fully functional Win10 build with Ceton cable card encrypted channels working. I’ve not tried extenders yet, so I guess I’ll try that next.
Thanks to everyone who worked on getting this project going.
Thanks a lot !
just installed Windows 10 2004 yesterday and reinstalled WMC 8.4, and everything work fine with your patch
does this need to be done as well?
I'm not sure whether @Bigmedion carried out those steps but I don't think it would be working without them.
What I am sure of is that he could have saved himself some work by using my fix_mssqllite utility
been ready and waiting to upgrade and test before doing a clean install.
I will upgrade, try and report back
upgraded windows to 2004
WMC wouldnt open despite
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\eHome STILL THERE 9 items
C:\Windows\ehome STILL THERE 125 items
tried a restore from backuprestore
WMC didnt work, worth a shot, wonder if using yr WMC_Multi_Tool might have made it work
uninstalled 8.8.4 and reinstalled it
tried a restore from backuprestore
WMC didnt work
ran your fix_MSSQLLite.cmd
deleted settings.reg & settingsbackup dir
restore from new backuprestore
Yes The Media Center works but not very well, I use it with Emby Server, all the movie and film part work fine with The Emby MCE plugin, but the configuration of The Media Library don't work, If you click on settings/multimedia library, for any choice, (music, pictures, videos, recorded TV, movies) I receive the following message:
A needed component of Windows Media Center don't start correctly
restart Windows Media Center
A restart don't change anything
my version of MCE is 8.8.4
and uninstall/reinstall don't chanfe anything
things I have made;
just what is described in this post, https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...ible-alternatives.61061/page-484#post-1548260 nothing else
PS: sorry if some mistake I'm 77 years old and english is not my native language
@Bigmedion, I don't recognise the symptoms you describe as something I've encountered myself.
Could it be something to do with the emby plug-in as I don't use that. Have you tried WMC without it instaled?
Removing Emby don't change anything
I listed everything i did, i will add further information
in windows 1909, i did a clean install of 8.8.4
i setup WMC, media libraries, tv setup, guide, everything worked
i then did a backup.
after upgrading to windows 2004
i ended up doing a clean install of 8.8.4
restored my backup
made a new backup
everything worked without the reg entries
hope that clarifies things
I know i dont use Emby but WMC should work fine
Due to the increasing number of people experiencing issues with WMC because MSSQLLite has been removed in later builds of Windows 10, I have updated my 'One Shot' standalone WMC tool called Roll_Back_DLLs so that, in addition to the previous functions, it reinstates the missing DLLs and registry entries for MSSQLLite.
It can be downloaded from my website, which is shown in my signature.
WMC Multi Tool is still available for those who prefer to use the 'scalpel rather than a broadsword' approach to getting WMC to work.
