    Windows Media Player 10 (XP SP2)

    Recently I have attempted to update Windows Media Player from version 10 to 11. When I do, I am told to "Please visit Windows Update to download the Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 before installing Windows Media Player 11." When I attempt to do this, the file tells me I don't have the correct version of Media Center 2005. Yet I do. Prior to this I brought it up here. It came down to reinstalling XP. I did. Same thing. In fact, after the reinstall, I can't get Media Center 2005 to work. when I try to execute I receive this message, "Application has generated an exception that could not be handled. Process id=0x58c (1420), Thread id=0xf70 (3952)." When I try to debug I get this message, "Registered JIT de###### is not available. An attempt to launch JIT de###### with the following command resulted in an error code of 0x2(2). Please check computer settings. cordbg.exe !a 0x58c." How do I get the de######? Is there any way I can get Windows XP Media Center 2005 back in service without having to spend several hours reinstalling XP for the second time?

    Did you go to Windows Update for all the latest patches? Do you have all the latest device drivers for your system? Other than Media Center is the machine working OK?

    Everything is working fine with the exception of Media Center. Yes, I have all the updates. the only ones that do not seem to work are those that have to do with Media Center 2005. When I try to use them, some tell me I do not have 2005. Others tell me they will not work until I update. It is a Catch-22 situation. Do you know how or where I can download the JIT de###### and install it?

    Re: Windows Media Player 10 (XP SP2)

    Does this help ???

    "you can download WinDbg from MS just (http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtoo...nstallx86.mspx).

    Once downloaded, install the application.
    Once installed, navigate to <Program Files>Debugging Tools for Windows and execute the 'WinDbg' executable with the switch '-I', e.g. from the run command "C:Program FilesDebugging Tools for WindowsWinDbg -I".
    This will install and use the WinDbg application as your default de######. Now when running an application and it throws an unhandled exception - the new de###### will appear. However, if your life is too short to fumble through the stack and register traces you can load the managed 'sos.dll' file that provides a host of helper functions to specifically debug managed applications. To do this, in the command line window type...

    !<DIR>sos.help

    Where the <DIR> is the path to the appropriate 'sos.dll' file. For example, to utilise the 'sos.dll' file for Framework 2.0 type "!C:WindowsMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727sos.hel p".

    Note 1: the de###### application comes with its own 'sos.dll' for Framework 1.1 that is located under the sub-directory of the 'WinDbg' application called 'clr10'.
    Note 2: to save having to type the path of the 'sos.dll' file it can be copied to another directory.

    After pressing enter, the CLI Window will print all the available commands that this helper library provides. For example, to get a readable version of the exception type...

    !pe

    ...to print the exception that has occurred.

    Now to be fair - I haven't a clue why this scenario occurred. Why the SDK JITde###### didn't invoke? (And I tried this on 3 different machines and reinstalled the OS on each machine at least twice?) Was there some kind of restriction on Windows XP Home or maybe even an MS Update that is preventing some exploit but also causes this issue - who knows?"

    I already have Windows Media Player 10 installed on my computer. It is WMP 11 that will not install.

    I saw this mentioned in several threads Error message when you try to install Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005: "Setup failed". Also, even though this talks about the WMP 11 beta check out Aaron Stebner's WebLog : What to do if you receive unsupported OS message when installing Windows Media Player 11 Beta on Windows Media Center 2005. Have you checked out the install log for the Media Center rollup (MCsetup_UI.log)?
