    See this blog - about 1/5th down the page or search for "media" - and MSKB 932818: April 2007 Cumulative Update for Media Center for Windows Vista which suggest it does but with some issues.

    Re: Windows Media Connect (WMC) (2.0)

    I'm not sure if we are talking about the same thing. I am referring to Windows Media CONNECT. The most recent info I could find on the MS site was a readme ( http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsme...wmc_readme_CKPC ) from October 2005. Not suprisingly, the minimum system requirements at that time did not include Vista. I was hoping someone might have more current information or know of a "workaround".

    Windows Media Connect is now named Windows Media Player Network Sharing Services and version 4 is an integral part of Windows Media Player 11 for Windows Vista.

    Thanks Hans! That was exactly the kind of info I was looking for. <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> I guess I should just go to the WMP site at MS.

    Sorry - I didn't absorb your thread title fully <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15> - at least you got a useful answer though!
