Media Center 20 won't start on Windows 10
« on: July 29, 2015, 03:48:49 pm »

I upgraded my machine from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. Media Center now fails to start with the error message: Media Center was installed for a different operating system. Please reinstall Media Center.

I did completely uninstall and then re-install. Same outcome.  :'(

Weird, I downloaded the latest MC build and re-installed and it works like a champ.  Did you download the latest?

Someone else reported that reinstalling MC fixed the problem.

I installed Win10 (Pro, x64) from a DVD. Details given, FWIW.

In my case, MC20 came up with a message saying that it was installed for a different operating system, and that I needed to reinstall. So I downloaded MC20 again, and did the quick-install. After that, it all came up just fine.

To improve the experience, I would suggest that MC present a different dialog box. If MC has downloaded an update, it should offer to start that with a simple button that would start the update (so I don't have to DL it again) and then kill the parent process.

It might help if JRiver puts up a "Sticky" to address this - as a lot of people are going to be upgrading this week.

It makes sense that MC would complain that MC is installed on the wrong OS. Since it is now on a "different OS" (you were running it on Win 7 or 8 ), so after you upgraded to Win10 - JRiver program says "what the heck?" when you restart with Win10.
