Help with Windows Media Center Edition files

How can I play a movie that has been recorded with Windows Media Center Edition (dvr-ms files) on another computer that uses windows xp professional or home edition.

Im not really sure what area this falls under? So i just picked one.

Thanx

Re: Help with Windows Media Center Edition files

the (dvr-ms files) play on the computer that has the Media Edition software with whatever major prog i use, (windows media player, winamp, divx.) But if i put the file on a disk (cd or dvd) and try to play it on a computer without Media Edition software regardless of the prog. i'm using to play the disk, it will not play. Sorry for the confusion

i'm pretty sure windows update has a manual update that describes "download this update to play windows media center files on other windows xp pc's" check it out.

Re: Help with Windows Media Center Edition files

I found a download for it at this address: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
When i tried to install the executable it said that I needed windows xp service pack 1 or higher. I download sp1(a) and install it. When i try to run the executable again it still says that i need windows xp service pack 1. I go back online and get windows service pack 2 download and install it. Then i try to run the executable for a third time(might of been fourth), and then it proceeds to tell me that i can only install this update with win service pack 1


Im confused just a wee bit.
