Please help, ehshell.exe issue

2 posts in this topic

I'm sure everyone knows what problem I'm talking about here... I've been on google for about 6 hours now and about 300 reboots later I figured i'd finally ask for some help. ehshell.exe crashes everytime I run MCE 2005 Rollup 2. Before the rollup, it worked fine. Trying to install the update automatically failed due to the hotfix errors, so I installed manually after extracting all the files. Then it installed fine and I got the ehshell.exe failure after about 3-5 seconds of the program running. Then I uninstalled everything (wmp11, .net 1.1 sp1, rollup 2) Then the automatic update worked.. but the software did the same thing, 3-5 seconds working fine then the 'Application has generated and exception blah blah blah' error popped up. I've tried the October 2006 rollup update also, but the same thing. I'm going absolutely nuts I just bought an expensive TV tuner specifically for this but it just won't work for me... My ehshell.crash log is below.. PLEASE HELP :(

11. Please refrain from using CAPITALIZATIONS in the topic title or when participating in threads because they will not attract attention - instead it will annoy many of MSFN's members.

12. Very often we see meaningless subjects in topic title. They give no clue of what the posts are all about. For example:

- Oh no!

- Help

- I'm mad

- Please help

- Question

- I need your help

- Hmmmm ....

This should be avoided. Users should enter something more specific in topic title so that it is easier for others to help.

A few good examples:

- Strange problem with DirectX9b redist

- RunOnceEx install problem (double installation)

- Change Internet Explorer's Icon back to default
