Windows 7: Media Center update log

Wmc guide does not update

I was having the same problem. Cancel any recording in progress then back out of media center. Start media center again and go straight to the update now. Worked for me ☝

Here, in June of 2019, I received the same message and instructions, as this screen shot. It was not helpful. What did solve this problem with downloading the Guide update, was to choose a restore point before this issue first appeared, and restoring my system. The guide download then completed successfully, without and error messages. I recommend you try this approach. It worked for me, when I finally concluded that this issue and the instructions were a glitch in how the WMC was loaded. It was a real relief to discover that this solved this annoying problem, just a day before the Guide Schedule information was to disappear.
