Windows XP MCE 2005

Post by ActivateYourTech »

Hello,

I had Windows XP MCE 2005 installed and went to help and support center for fun but it wrote Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004:

(Had to edit because I wrote 2005 instead of 2004 above)

Maybe you put SP2 instead of SP3?

I put SP3 according to winver and CMD.
I do have a network card and it is plugged in (I checked in removable devices.).

I seem to remember that being a normal quirk of how it’s designed just like how it internally identifies as Professional edition in many areas

Same, Since I use MCE2005 ricktendo64 nlite addons to create Windows XP MCE2005 SP3.
Windows XP SP3 thinks it's MCE2004
