Cannot create Windows Media Center Shortcut

SlinkynoseSlinkynose Members, Plex Pass Posts: 45 Plex Pass

I had to do a reinstall of my WMC setup due to the recent guide issues and I lost my OpenPHT shortcut in the process. I messed around with MCE Reset Toolbox a little to try to get it back but that did not work.

I figured if I just uninstalled and re-installed OpenPHT it would come back through that process but it did not.

Any ideas or other similar experiences?

    I wanted to follow up with a solution. I was never able to get OpenPHT installation to create the shortcut and menu row.

    The OpenPHT Entrypoint did show up in MCE Reset Toolbox.

    WMC would crash on load if I created the row and included the shortcut with MCE Reset Toolbox. Not sure why this is happening, as I have never had any issues editing menus with the tool before.

    I was able to use the entrypoint in the Live TV Menu Row and everything works.

    Thanks Wally, I will look into that. Always good to have another tool for this aging solution!
