October 2010 Cumulative Update for Windows Media Center in Windows 7
It’s that time for a new Cumulative Update for your Win7 MCE systems. Just a couple major items fixed here, but major nonetheless. As always, proceed at your own risk and always make sure to take a system snapshot before doing the update just in case.
The October 2010 Cumulative Update for Windows Media Center in Windows 7 resolves the following issues:
- Resolves a scheduling performance issue in which over time or start time for scheduled recordings may decrease.
- Resolves a significant Watson issue in some upgrade scenarios. In these scenarios, the Windows Media Center directory is missing or has incorrect permissions that result in a crash when you try to open Windows Media Center.
- Resolves a significant Watson issue during the typical database maintenance process. If a user uses Windows Media Center and causes a new type to be added to the database, Mcupdate.exe may crash.
