Windows 7: Media center netflix fail

Media center netflix fail

So. On my girlfriends laptop and my girlfriends dads laptop i installed netflix through media center. I go home and try it on my laptop through media center to no avail.

Netflix is not even an option in my media center and im pretty certain i have the same version of media center they do.

Ive looked all over google and ive re-setup media player and ive even tried downloading an external version of netflix that was to be later integrated into media center but that just downloaded silver light and didnt put netflix into media center like it said it would.

Has anyone else had problems getting netflix in media center?

I have windows 7 ultimate

win 7 64 bit
NO Netflix joy

Hi Exact same problem on Win7 64 bit. I've been all over the internet looking for fixes and tried them all - no joy.
Some MC win7 PCs just won't take the Netfilx option for some reason. I can watch the movies in a web browser perfectly, but I would like to watch them in MC.

I don't know if this has any relevance to your case but apparently there is a driver that is part of the Tablet PC Input Service that Silverlight needs to function in MC 12. Mine would not play NFlix until I turned on that service. Go figure?

Ok, I have a relatively new computer (6 months old Alienware) with Windows 7 Ultimate. I never knew there could be an option for Internet TV or Netflix in Media Center until my wife got a new computer two days ago (Windows 7 Home Premium) and I saw that she had a button for both Internet TV and...

NetFlix Streaming Windows 7 Media Center
Does anyone have a trick to get the plug-in for NetFlix working on Windows 7 Media Center? I know of the other 2 unofficial apps (vmcNetFlix, and one other) fans created, but they aren't as good as the official one from Microsoft/Netflix. On Vista, it just automagically appears on the menu...
