Does anyone have any direct MS connections to help him figure out this DLL locked show stopper? I would rather stay on Windows 7 than lose My Channel Logos on my HTPC. (what a shame) I hope a work around is found, or MS opens it all back up in the final RTM. Why on earth would they lock anything down when they know the few people that do use Media Center like to tweak it a bit. MS is adding insult to injury nearly abandoning Media Center, then bring it back crippled. What does MS gain by locking down the DLL's? Is this just an unfortunate sloppy accident by MS or done for some "good reason" only a MS spreadsheet manager could possibly understand.makryger wrote:Just wanted to issue a quick update on the status of MCL for Windows 8. It was all working perfectly and ready to go about 1.5 months ago, but then the Release Preview was unveiled. In the process of separating Media Center from Windows, they have completely broken the ability to edit dll's. Any time I try to change the rows in the guide, or anything of that sort, Media Center simply doesn't open. No error, no nothing. This does not affect the logo portion of the program, but I was hoping to have the whole package available at once. (Just in case you needed another data point for the "I'll never upgrade to W8 threads"...)
If anyone has any ideas as to how to circumvent this problem, I am all ears. Feel free to send PMs.
I hate seeing Media Center in limbo. MCE either needs to remain great, or a new 3rd party DVR apps need to step up to replace it in the future. As of today MCE is still king, and I don't see a suitable substitute so I'll continue living in Limbo land for now.
