I had Vista Media Center working like a charm on my Server 2008 x64 (64 bit).
I had to fiddle with many registry settings, to get it to work. The answer to the problem "Windows cannot open this program because it has been prevented by a software restriction policy" is BDA files. (i think, cant seem to remember properly..lol)

Funny i just re-installed my server, and lost Media Center, and dont have the time to write or create a batch file for it. But i will try my best to write a bat file to install Media Center on server.
If i do get the time to write the bat file to install media center on server 2008 x64, unfortunately its going to be only x64. I DONT use x86 OS anymore, because of my 8gb ram.

If anyone is willing to give it another try to get Media center working on server, then make sure you install my BDA pack as well.

It would be nice if you can post a batch-script :)

Or a sort of howto...

I'm running x64 vesrion only too. Because all my machines have at least 4 gb of ram.
