windows 7 software restriction for windows media center

windows media center error windows cannot open this program because it has been prevented by a software restriction policy for more information contact your system administrator.


I see 100 of people got this problem .
I intstall window 7 last week
now i am getting the same message,
I did everything what chris says and it didn,t work for me.
why is is working for some , and other it not.
I know it is a setting issue. I tryed every setting i can think of .
We need some one from support to tell how to fix this issue. I tryed all the basic setting and still the same issue. enable , disable and still the same. I wish someone would post how to get the sofware restriction off , of windows media center so we can get it to work. I been at this for weeks, and all over the internet people are having the same problem and what people are saying will fix it , is not fixing it. thanks for all replays.

group policie you say. It easy for a senor member on this site to say oh well it in group policie and leave us with that. We been their but don,t know what to do their. Your a seven guru here i see, that why we came here to ask one of the seven guru for help, not just to blow us off like that. I been at this for 1 week now with no one giving 100 of people help on this issue. I wish one of the mod would give us some step to fix this problem. Thank you.

I understand your frustration with this but in no way did I blow you off. I am very knowledgeable about Windows but since I lack exposure to corporate environment, group policy based problems are definitely not my specialty. There are gurus here that make me look like I never touched a pc in my life.

Honestly, I already gave you the best info I could on it. I would imagine most other people in my place wouldn't have even posted. I thought I was being cool because you had no responses and basically helped you bump.

Just because someone is a mod or labeled guru, does not automatically mean we know the solutions to all problems.

If I knew how to help better I would. But again, in all honesty, this is your problem. Not mine. Not the mods.

So what I'm saying, you and I are on equal levels with this. I know nothing more than you.

That being said, I really do wish a solution for you soon somehow. And I wish I could have helped better. Good luck.

Run gpedit.msc. Expand Computer Configuration - Administrative Templates - Windows Components - Windows Media Center

Unsure Do not allow Windows Media Center to run is either not configured or disabled.

You should also check the same setting under User Configuration. Most network administrator prefer to use Local Machine but either could be causing the problem.
