[access-uk] Re: Media Center again

Hi Steve.

Thanks for that.

I managed to follow your instructions and WindowEyes announced the 
following:
Microsoft Media Center Edition version  20.02, Service Pack 2, Registered to 
Andy Logue.

So this looks as though the installation of Media Center was successful eh?

Why when I do Run and type in Command, then Ver, do I get Microsoft XP 
Professional version 5.1?

Do you think Media Center is in there or perhaps partially?

Best wishes.
Andy
