MCE 2005 Rollup 2 and Power DVD 7.3 Ultra


Active Member

Wondering if anyone has seen this problem.

I want to upgrade 'My movies' to the latest version, which requires Rollup 2. When I installed this into my MCE 2005 system, my DVD playback (via Power DVD 7.3 Ultra) stopped working. I am using this player as it uses the Purevideo codecs like TheaterTek but it can also play HD-DVD and Blu Ray. Every time I tried playing a DVD it failed with a blue screen and an 'Application Failure', So I removed Rollup 2, rebooted, and everything worked fine.

Has anyone managed to get MCE 2005 with Rollup 2 working with Power DVD 7.3 Ultra, can 7.3 be patched to get it working or is this combo simply incompatible?

Thanks and best wishes,

I have the same combination of software and no problems at all. I would check Windows UPdate and download the MS codec checking utility for MCE to if this gets altered post Rollup 2.
