Windows 7 Media Center, Music Library re-building problem.

I am seeing some very strange happenings with the 7MC Music Library and with music files stored on Windows Home Server machines. This is not just an isolated issue as I have seen the same problem at several different sites on different WHS servers / networks etc.

I posted a thread here on the Green Button and this is how I described this problem.

“I saw this in the beta’s / RC and still see it now. When entering the 7MC music library (Albums) view the library looks like its rebuilding itself.

The number of albums is increasing slowly, the covers aren’t visible and the default icons appear and then disappear, flashing, it eventually gets to the correct numbers of albums count, but becomes unresponsive you have to exit and go back in to the Music library several times before it finally settles down again and you then see all your albums with the covers.”

It seems others are reporting similar problems with 7MC as well.

I’ve got an official support incident logged with Microsoft, I just hope they have a solution for us?

  1. I have seen this in the past, and it was supposed to be fixed. The reoccurrence of the problem certainly died down, however since the latest Windows update 16/02/12. the problem is back,. along with numerous other ones I’m seeing which i think are related to a .net 4 update whereby one of my VMs sees explorer continually crash, restart and then crash again. Not sure what Microsoft’s done in the latest release of patches, but is anyone else seeing this problem resurface since patching?
