xbox 360 connects once

hey guys first post.

i set my 360 exteder with my windows 7 rc but it only works once, what i mean is it wors then when i turn 360 of and back on it fails to connect and i have to go on the comp media center delete the extender and re install it with a new code, this is very annoying since i also use media browser which means i also got to go back and share that folder in programdata.

any ideas why i neeed to reinstall it every time the 360 switches off

Maybe it's a permission problem with the ProgramData folder?
Have you checked your firewall for possible issues?
How is the Xbox connected? Ethernet, wireless?
