I just downloaded and installed Windows Live Essentials 2011. When I tried to watch a movie I have in my media library through my WDLive TV device it would not let me login to network shares. After some investigating I uninstalled Windows Live Essentials 2011 completely and was again able to log into network shares on my WDtv Live.
Evidently there is a problem between WDTV Live and Windows Live Sign in Assistant in Windows Essentials Live 2011 and it blocks access through my WDTV. I could not find any way to just uninstall the sign in assitant so have totally uninstalled Windows Live Essentials for now. Anyone else having this issue and has anyone found a workaround instead of a total uninstall of Windows Live Essentials 2011?
