Windows Media Center Connector - Password Error - Vista 32 Ultimate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have scoured the internet looking for a fix for this unsuccessfully so far. I have 2 Windows Vista Ultimate 32 bit computers that connect just fine with the WHS connector but when you run the Media Center Connector it responds with "incorrect password" every time. The server is running PP2.

    Things I have tried so far:

    changing passwords
    checking time sync between server and client
    making sure authentication levels match in secpol.msc in both server and client computers
    looking for the DCOM error
    running MCWHSSetup.exe in compatibility mode
    making sure all windows updates are installed on client and server
    checking permissions on C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys to make sure system and administrators have full access
    fresh install of entire OS on one computer

    MCWHSSetup.exe version is 6.0.2030.2 4-20-2009
    Server is PP2

  • To make things even more interesting, I just completed an install of Vista 64 Home Premium in a VMWare Virtual Machine on the same computer and it works just fine.

    My thoughts are that its an Ultimate thing and just not enough people have both Ultimate and Home Server to have noticed.
