    Xbox 360 and Extender problems in Vista

    I have the public beta 2 of vista and a Xbox 360. When I try to connect..I
    get the launch screen and it briefly goes to the main menu, then shuts and
    says "closing desktop".... then the 360 leaves this error:

    "The Xbox has disconnected because an application has launched UI
    unexpectedly. Would you like to reconnect?"

    It then continues to do this over and over.......

    Any suggestions???

    Cheers

    Are there any open applications when you try to connect the XBOX to Vista
    such as Media Player or Media Center for example? Try closing out all
    applications and connect again. If the problem persist, I suggest reporting
    the issue.

    You might also want to post this in the Media Center newsgroup where others
    might be experiencing the same and be able to give you better answer or
    possible work around:

    Also check the Application, System, and Security Event Viewer logs (right
    click My Computer --> Manage) for any errors corresponding to the time that
    you tried to connect and then post them here.
