Media Center Expiring in in Vista Community Tech Preveiw #3

I got this link: sent to me about Media Center not working in Community Tech Preview #3 for Vista.

Well this is lame and not fun but we are fixing it was we speak. An update will be out very shortly to fix the problem. If anyone is interested I’m happy to explain how this happened.

Needless to say this isn’t a good way to start the new year.

    Well, I for one would be interested in the why and how. Not meaning in an accusatory way, obviously this wasn’t done intentionally, uh right?

    This fix will distributed through what? MSDN? Windows update?

    Very shortly is a window of… a couple days? Setting expectations a little more tightly would certainly help bedlam on the user groups :).

    Very shortly would mean in the next day or two. For now the fix will be on and on MSDN.

    I will write up the story in a blog post. It wasn’t on purpose, I swear. 🙂

    Try this: change date before January 1st and it will work.

    Then your guide won’t work properly as you’ll need to move it forward.

    A patch has just been put up on the beta site so if you have access go look for it. 🙂
