Someone told me that it is possible to port Media Centre 2005 to Longhorn builds such as Build 3718 and Build 3683. I know I could use Build 3718 disc 2 to install Media Centre, but thats and older version. Please could someone tell me how to port Media Centre 2004 or 2005 to Build 3718.

Thankyou! :)

go to software/install windows components and activate the media center, itll ask for the media center cd, insert it, the software should install automatically

First you have to go inside sysoc.inf and remove every instance of "hide".

Just don't remove the commas :wink:

I'd also recommend copying the medctroc.inf from the Media Center 2005 CDs, overwriting the existing one in C:\WINDOWS\Inf
The older medctroc.inf included with 3718 doesn't work with the newer 2005 Media Center iirc. You might have to use TweakNT to manually change the ProductSuite to Media Center though.

I got it working on 3683 using this method btw.
