The strCountryCode key should be set to GB in order for SkyPlayer to download and install itself properly (it only installed in the UK, which is identified by the GB entry in this key). If its not set to GB already, this is probably your problem, so set it to GB and exit Regedit. Then re-start Media Center. Go into Tasks/General/Automatic Download Options, and select Download Now. Once the download has finished, hey-presto SkyPlayer should appear.
Ok thats fine but when trying to play skyplayer, got message no internet connection, yet when doing the test in wmc said connection was good.
Has anyone else had problem, maybe another tweak in regedit?
would apppreciate any help.
The above was very helpful, but...
I have win 7 64bit HP pc and when I opened Media Center, Sky Player was there and works fine. The relevant Registry entry, has eleven entries which includes the string for CountryCode GB, is as shown in the Win 7 64 bit attachment.
We also have a Win 7 32bit HP laptop wherein Media Center does NOT include Sky Player. The Reg entry for this pc has only two entries - default -value not set and fAgreeEPGPrivacy 0x00000000 (0) and obviously, no string for CountryCode. Please see the second attachment for the Win 7 32 bit pc.
I'm far from being a Registry wizard and would appreciate that an expert compare
the two and let me know what I can safely export from the 64bit entries and import to the 32bit entries to get Sky Player on the 32bit pc.
They are both OEM versions of Win 7 which I bought from Amazon at the same time so why the big difference in the registry entries I can not fathom
Thanks in advance for assistance
