Xbox 360 and Extender problems in Vista

K
#1
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.
