"Unable to Acquire License"
You will now perform steps that will guide you on how to get the latest version of Windows Media Player 10.
· Close the iMesh application (Click 'File' -> 'Exit').
· Download the latest version of Windows Media Player 10 by clicking the following link:
When prompted, choose to save the file. Save it to your Desktop.
Once it's downloaded, go to your Desktop, and double click the just downloaded installation file.
Follow the on-screen instructions of the installation wizard.
(Note: Even if you already have Windows Media Player 10 installed, it does not necessarily mean that you have the latest and most up-to-date version of it, therefore proceed with the steps in this guide to resolve the problem).
After the Windows Media Player 10 installation is complete:
· Restart your computer.
· Go to www.iMesh.com to download and install the latest version of iMesh.
· Once you open up the freshly installed iMesh, the registration screen will appear asking you to register.
Since you already have an active account, click the Already Registered? Click here to sign in button. This will pop open the iMesh login screen. Sign in to your account using your username and password, and wait for iMesh to sign in.
· Once signed in, do nothing (we mean it, this is very important), and wait for 5 minutes without touching your computer whatsoever. This is important, as iMesh needs to reacquire licenses for your songs.
When the 5 minutes elapse, proceed to play some of your tracks; there may be a slight pause upon attempting to play the first track, and then everything will return to normal functionality.
If you have Windows XP Media Center Edition,
and this troubleshooting does not resolve the matter, proceed to reading the next topic below.
License acquisition: Windows XP Media Center Edition Specific
Please read the Official license acquisition guide for Windows XP above.
Windows XP Media Center Edition
In case the above guide does not resolve the problem:
Since Windows XP Media Center Edition is not a 100% supported operating system in conjunction with iMesh, there is unfortunately no further official troubleshooting available to resolve the matter at hand.
You may of course consult with users of the iMesh community at the iMesh Forums, as there are various user-made troubleshooting solutions available in case the official troubleshooting guide to license acquisition does not assist you.
As soon as Microsoft releases an update that will resolve Windows XP Media Center Edition issues in regards to DRM/License acquisition, iMesh will make it known and available.
Error Message: "Unable to find install.log"
You may be receiving this message when uninstalling iMesh. It is usually caused by multiple installs and uninstalls due to troubleshooting and other random fiddling.
This is probably the easiest to solve problem though, so not to worry:
This error occurs during the uninstall process, and causes the uninstall to fail.
First open iMesh, click File, and then click Exit. This will make sure that iMesh is completely shut down before proceeding.
Next, instead of uninstalling, go to the www.iMesh.com homepage, and install the latest version of iMesh by downloading iMesh. This will overwrite the one that you presently have installed.
When completing the iMesh installation, uncheck the run iMesh now option, and then click Finish.
Now that that's done, you may proceed to uninstalling iMesh from the Windows Control Panel as previously attempted, and it should successfully uninstall this time.
