I just upgraded my Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 to Vista Ultimate
Ed. (RTM). The upgrade went very well and with the exception of a few minor
tweaks that I had to make, Vista is working great.
However, I just tried to connect to my Xbox 360 and I can't get it to work.
It was connected fine before the upgrade, and now when I go through the setup
process I get a screen that gives me a generic "Configuration Error" screen.
Here is the process:
- Go into Media Center on Vista Ultimate
- Go to Tasks -> Add Extender
- Enter my Xbox 360 serial number, select the default options on the next
- I get to the configuration screen where it shows all of the configuration
tasks, and after about 3 seconds I get a a new "Configuration Error" screen.
An error was encountered while configuring your computer for use with this
I checked the event logs and here is what is happening when I try to connect
to the 360:
Information 6:09:52 PM:
Aaron started Windows Media Center Extender setup with the following
options: Firewall settings (0,0,1,1) Power management (1) Media settings (1)
Windows Media Center Extender setup cannot configure the Windows Media
Center PC for use with the Extender. Error code: -114.
I have tried the following:
-Disabling Windows Firewall
-Disabling OneCare (which I have installed.)
Nothing seems to work and I constantly get the error. I DO NOT want to
reformat and re-isntall, I just don't have the time.
Please help, this is VERY FRUSTRATING... THANKS!
