What would I do without this site?
Didn’t even consider compatibility with Server 2008 R2 when I bought my TV Tuner.
Twenty minutes of confusion before I headed here for a perfect solution.
Hauppauge WinTV HVR-2250 working on Server 2008 R2.
Made a separate topic for it, but I thought I would add it here too,
Batman: Arkham City and a few others that conflict with Structured Exception Handling Overwrite Protection (SEHOP) need this registry entry:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionImage File Execution OptionsBatmanAC.exe]
You could also disable SEHOP.
I got it working.
It was certainly never an actual memory problem (12GB RAM), but I uninstalled the demo, installed the games explorer, reinstalled the demo, and it worked.
I guess it wasn’t a completely controlled test as I should have just installed the games explorer and tried it, but I’m pretty sure that was the problem.
Someone might want to update the main tutorial and take out the part about just installing gameux.dll. I was under the impression that the .dll was required and the explorer was just frill. Apparently not.
Actually, I just opted for gameux.dll since I hate the games explorer. I’ll get the full explorer installed and report back. Thanks for the suggestion.
Hmm, that’s the same version I’m trying. So it appears this isn’t a Server08R2 issue specifically, but something that just might occur frequently on R2.
Thanks, I’ll look at other things then.17th January 2010 at 16:25 in reply to: Windows Media Sharing Support in Windows Server 2008 #47122
I thought it would be hard to come by in the future so I saved my installer exe.
I only want it up there for a limited time so let me know when you get it downloaded so I can take it down.13th January 2010 at 18:38 in reply to: Windows Media Sharing Support in Windows Server 2008 #47120
Sorry, I should have followed up. It’s been a while since I needed this forum so I haven’t been back to check on my own post (didn’t check notify box). For what it’s worth now, I’m using the Zune software version 3.1.620.
However, even that version will tell you that your OS isn’t supported. The good news is that the OS check is built into the exe wrapper, not the msi installer. So, if you use an archiving program (I used WinRAR) to extract the contents of the Zune installer exe you’ll end up with a set of folders that contains an msi installer. Run that and it will install just fine. It’s been working for me over a year now.26th June 2009 at 20:43 in reply to: Windows Media Sharing Support in Windows Server 2008 #47116
I use an older version of the Zune software. It has media sharing components in it that cause the Xbox 360 to recognize my media on Server 2008.
