Solved!

what is the media center executable

HP Recommended
Pavilion a1250n
Microsoft Windows XP

I have a media center pc running Windows XP.  A rogue program wiped out my start menu, and I cannot find the executable for the HP media center program, which I preferred to the Windows Media Player.  Does anyone know the name and location of the executable?

Rique, welcome to the forum.

 

Here are some instructions that may help you find the file that you need:

 

1. Go to START.

2. Click SEARCH.

3. Click on “For Files and Folders…

search

4. From “What do you want to search for?” list on the left, click on “All files and folders.”

5. Type the filenames on the search box, and choose the “Local Hard Drives” (normally, it’s C: drive).

6. Click on “Search“.

 

I would type in Media Center to see if that helps.  I haven't used XP for years.  So, I am going from memory that this is correct.

That search turned up a CAB folder with the media center files.  When extracted I was able to try running the exe files, and it turns out to be ehshell.exe.  Thank you.
