WHSMediaAccessBackground program has stopped responding RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I start the Windows Media Centre program on a PC connected to the WHS server I get the following error message displayed after a few seconds ...

    "Program not responding

    The WHSMediaAccessBackground program
    has stopped responding and you will be
    returned to Windows Media Centre"

    When I hit the ok button the Media Centre continues ok.

    I've tried removing and reinstalling the Connector - but the problem persists.
    Welcome any suggestion as to what's wrong and / or how to fix.

    Thanks

  • The WHS connector.

    I couldn't locate a separate Media Centre Connector.
    I looked in running programs / services in taskmanager and in installed programs.

    Excuse my ignorance ...  Where is it - how do I reinstall it?

    Thanks

    There should be a program on your MC called Windows Media Center Connector.  Just open that and follow the prompts.

    Did you try reinstalling the Media Center Connector (or just the Home Server Connector)?
