You are my last hope, using info from other Forums I have done the following:
Went to "Turn Windows features on and Off", both Media Center and Media Player are checked. I unchecked and the checked them, no Media anywhere.
"Start menu and then in the upper right corner type in media center. It will start searching the whole computer for media center". I had a file, Media Center Programs dated 11/21/10, when I clicked on it I got "This Folder is empty". I installed this Dell computer 7/10/11. None of the newer files were helpful.
Searched the Dell Reinstallation DVD thoroughly and found an icon for windows media center, I clicked it and it popped up with the following warning:
Windows Media Center has lost its remote connections to Windows Media Player. Restart and try again.
I don't know what to do, Windows Media Center and Player are definitely not on my Win 7 64 Bit desktop. I realize it was most likely installed by Dell but I don't remember deleting it or how.
I tried to download WMC on Microsoft site but when I did it said what I had (Version 12.0.7601.17514) is newer than what would be downloaded. It seems strange the it knows the version number when I can't find the programs.
I truly hope that you Microsoft Guru's can help, after 3 days I think I have tried every non-working solution available.
