Swapped Center / Console IP's, now ATA Center svc fails to start

Q: Swapped Center / Console IP's, now ATA Center svc fails to start

I've just installed ATA center and a lightweight gateway on one DC. I logged into the ATA console and tried swapping the IP's of the ATA Center and ATA Console. After saving my changes, there was a message about waiting for the gateways to sync
the new config, along with 2 buttons. I think the first button was to apply the new config, but it was greyed out. The second button was "revert". After a few minutes, the first button never became available, so I tried reloading
the page. Now I can't get the console to load on either of the 2 IP addresses.
When I try to open either IP in IE, I get "this page cannot be displayed."
How can I get the console back?
Edit: Looks like the ATA Center service is failing to start. In Event viewer, I see 4 events each time it tries and fails to start, with the most relevant/informative event being HttpEvent ID 15005:
Unable to bind to the underlying transport for 10.x.x.x:443. The IP Listen-Only list may contain a reference to an interface which may not exist on this machine. The data field contains the error number.
Looks like maybe it's trying to bring up ATA Center on it's original IP, but the console has already taken over that IP.
Any suggestions?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Yesterday I tried to start my HP Pavilion dv8309us laptop with XP Media Center Edition 2005 but it would not complete the start normally. I tried starting with Last Known Good Configuration and it got a bit further but then stopped again and went back to "We apologize for the inconvenience " page. I do not see any reset button on the bottom of the computer but I am not sure if such a thing would help or even possibly delete data from the hard drive.

Are there any steps one can recommend that I can do to get my computer running again without reinstalling the op Sys? How can I retrieve data on the hard drive without rebooting system. I have most of my files backed up but there are some emails, other recent files and firefox favorites/download info/files I need to get from the hard drive.

Thanks for your help.

Hi, do you have the install Cd?
Try booting [starting] from the Xp install Cd. - when prompted press [R]
Choose Windows installation [typically by pressing [1]
When prompted for password.
Press Enter.
Type chkdsk /r
[note space after chkdsk]

When fininshed.
Type Exit
And press Enter.

The Bios needs to be set to boot [Start] from the Cd - it may already be set to do so.

Dears,
We recently implemented ATA center with two lightweight gateways. Then the customer have implemented a firewall but he bypassed the IP of the ATA center to be able to access it. But after entering to the ATA center console we are being promoted to enter
the Admin Credentials then we get a Blank Console.
We tried to restart the server and tried to access the console from Chrome, Edge and IE but nothing worked.
What could be the cause of this behavior ( a blank page for ATA center)  and how to resolve it.??

During my normal boot sequence for an XP Media Center PC the boot will pause for more than 30 seconds asking me to select Windows Media Center Edition or Microsoft Windows Recovery Console. When the Recovery Console was installed , several months ago, the boot sequence would only pause for maybe 1 second and go right into booting XP Media Center. Now it has a 30 second count down and then boots into XP Media Center. 30 seconds seems like an eternity when waiting for a computer to reboot. What changed to make it pause for 30 seconds and how can I change it back to pausing a short 1 second or so?

Hi All
I am trying to install the Microsoft ATA Center on Server 2012 R2 VM. I've got all the pre-reqs installed, the KB is installed on the system (can't remember the name but I've checked), .NET 3.5 and 4.5 is installed, I'm logged in with a domain account that
is local admin and run from an elevated cmd.

The installation gets quite far and deploys the program files and the icon but crashes with the error:
0x80070643

I have tried to delete the program files directory, that does not help. Windows Installer service is running. The error in the logs is:

Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation > System.FormatException: String was not recognised as a valid boolean

As you can imagine, this is not an actionable error.

I have a relatively new (3 months) ThinkPad P50. There have been several problems and support's solution is always "we'll send you a box". I now have 2 boxes and another on the way.

Hi there

If this is FREEVIEW (Digital Terrestial TV) all the channels (or at least a lot of them) changed YESTERDAY Wed 03 Sept.

You might want to re-load / re-install and start the whole Channel tuning stuff again . For instance SKY NEWS is now on I think Channel 132 and not 82 like it used to be.

Analog TV I don't think is available any more regions in the UK (and in a lot of Europe too) so if you were using that it might have been switched off in your region recently - I'm sure there aren't any Analog TV regions in UK any more.

Another suggestion - if you want BBC TV why not use on the Internet the BBC iPlayer - if your broadband is fine you can get it at HD quality too.

I have been using a self signed cert through the various versions of ATA. I am on 1.7 now. I generated an internal cert (picked legacy cng, default encryption algorithm, 2048 key length, etc).  Loaded on center server. I can pick the cert in the
console, and it syncs with the gateway successfully.  When I go to activate, it says activation failed.  I didn't know if there was a log that would give more detail on why it failed.  Good news though, revert option works.

This is basically - and unfortunately - one of those 'suck it and see' type problems. You are likely to have some component or component-complex which is failing at some delicate point in the installation. The long, quivering, bony finger of retribution and blame often points at memory. You have to try and run the installation routine in a stripped-down mode; one stick of RAM, say, or an older graphics card, to try and achieve a stable platform. By 'component-complex' I mean you know component A and component B both work fine. What may be problematical is A+B in this context. I know this is all vague and hand-waving but that's often the way- it's the inevitable downside of open architecture

Have a couple of different problems with my 8.1

The install was an original 8 I downloaded when it first came out.
I then installed 8.1, probably from the Store.
I recently downloaded and install 8.1 Media Center Pack.

Had a real problem with activation.
MS Support finally had me go to where there was a long activation string and then he gave me a new Product Key, which is now on the machine and Activated.

Hello Pete,

You will not be able to activate Windows 8 or 8.1 with the Media pack key.

Your original product key was for Windows 8, so you would need to install Windows 8 first, and enter the Windows 8 key during installation.

Afterwards, you would update to Windows 8.1 from the Store again.

Next, you would add WMC again, but select the I already have a product key option, and enter the media pack key.

I upgraded from windows 7 home premium to windows 8 pro with my valid product key that i purchased from Buy Windows - Microsoft Windows for $39.99 with ease. Then I requested a free media center key from windows here Add features - Microsoft Windows and i have still have not received the email. (I know i was stupid but,) I told my friend and he put his key in the the add features box and it says its valid and works for three hours. Then a blue screen pulls up asking to activate windows so i put in my valid product key and it says "This key didn't work. Please check it and try again, or try a different key". Under "Current product key" the last five digits do not match my valid product key. I'm assuming that the add features changed my product key and also my windows version so it wont activate. Kind of like using a Windows 7 home premium key on a Windows 7 ultimate os. I was looking around in the windows 8 help and found this Add features to Windows 8: Frequently asked questions that you cant remove added windows features unless you do a clean install. Which i don't believe i can do because i have a upgrade key.

A:Windows 8 Pro Product key fails after Media Center Key is entered

I assume your friend had already used the WMC key and that is why yours stopped working. You may have to re-install Window 7 and then your Windows 8 Upgrade key will work. I know it is a PIA. I make a image on my system before I do any updates so if something goes wrong I can restore back to the original. Also look at System Reset as it lets you restore to a clean version of Windows 8 and asks for your key. I do not know if it will work with the Upgrade key or not but may be worth checking.

First off, I've spent a week searching for a solution to this so if I've missed something obvious I apologize.

My xbox has been connected as a media center extender to this computer and router combination for several months now. The router is a Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH. Earlier this week the media center extender was having trouble playing back video. After a restart of the computer the extender was no longer connected.

When I try to add a new extender I get the message "Cannot add extender". Microsoft says to enable upnp and multicast. Check. Reflashed firmware to dd-wrt. No luck. Flash back to buffalo firmware. No luck. Try an old Linksys WRT54GL I have lying around. No Luck.

The event logger has this error: "Media Center Extender Setup failed as the Extender was detected on the network but the UPnP search for the Extender failed (timed out after 20000ms)." Event ID: 538

Now I've done everything I could find about enabling network discovery, allowing anything to access media and such. Network and sharing is set pretty much wide open. I've also tried switching between home and work networks.

With that said, I decided to check and see what updates have been installed. It turns out that an update was applied on the day I started having problems. It says it cannot be uninstalled. Description of the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 installation software feature update

I had to purchase it then, even though i already had it prior to the upgrade, and so i do not feel i should have to pay for it once again, especially since i saved the Product Key the second time!

Hey guys,

I used Malware Bytes, and once removed, the computer wouldnt go on line.
I had the owner open up the Services Console and discovered that Security Center, Workstation, Server, and Windows Defender Services were disabled.

I changed the start-up types on these services and for each service I got an error stating that the service cannot start because of windows resource protection service.

I then had the owner run the sfc /scannow and got the same windows resource protection error....

Yesterday I got a virus which brought up a false security window. I downloaded Malwarebytes which removed the malware causing the virus. I also have AVG on my computer. Today when I open my Security Center, it says the service is turned off. When I click to turn it on, I get a red X, saying it cannot be started. I have read multiple forums to fix this problem, but none have worked for me. One says to type Services in the start search, and check that Security Center is on. However, Security Center does not show up in my list when I open Services (only security accounts is there). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello everyone. So I just got the Xbox 360 COD special edition. I'm checking out all my features on the Xbox. There's an option to somehow connect your computer to your Xbox. The requirement is to go through the Media Center. Well, first time starting up the Media Center on my computer, and I'm not able to get the Media Center to open. I receive an error right on startup of the program. It ends up generating a crash report, and closes. I've take 2 screenshots of the error. The first screenshot is of the first error that comes up upon opening the Media Center. The second screenshot is of another error I get when I choose to cancel instead of clicking ok on the first error. I thought getting the most information to you guys would be the best.

I run Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2005 Service Pack 3.

Looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks a lot

I've also run anti-rootkit software which again found problems and fixed them without fixing the overall issue. I cannot do a system restore because when I try I am told system protection is switched off, although when I go into it is is actually on.
