Media Center Crashing During Setup

so my stepdad had me upgrade his xp media center edition pc to vista ultimate build 5384.

media center can run fine, except during setup.

it always crashes at some point during the setup.

it does detect the video card, media center remote, satellite remote, etc. and it can send to the satellite reciever with the ir thing on it, but as soon as it crashes and i start it back up, the configuration is gone again.

how can i get it working without crashing?


edit: i'm not there now, so theres no hurry since i'll only be able to do it over the weekend.

'Crash,' does that mean just freeze, or do you get an error message of sorts?

it gives me a dialog box saying something like "preparing media center crash report" which stays there for a few minutes.

Great, then there is a .log file in the MCE directory... that should help a lot once you're able to get it :smile:
