Trying to add XBOX 360 as Windows Media Center Extender on Windows 7 Pro machine. I have completely disabled Windows firewall and wireless security, with no luck.

To troubleshoot, I have:

  • Disabled Windows Firewall completely
  • Disabled Wireless Authentication & Encryption
  • Same problem on multiple computers
  • Verified that I have no problems over a wired connection.

Here are some other factors:

  • Router/Access Point is Linksys Wireless-N Broadband Router WRT160N
  • Using latest version of AVG Free on computers. Have tried disabling resident shield.

Here is the error I am getting on my pc: alt text

Based on my research and experience the "Configuration Error" problem occurs for a variety of reasons. Here are some of the common ones.

  1. Corrupt Media Center Certificate.
  2. Corrupt Default User Profile.

I solved the problem in my case by re-establishing the permissions for the Default user profile in c:\users\Default so that the administrative group had full permissions.
