Nero Mediahome keeps stopping and I can't find an answer to help

I have Nero Mediahome 4.5.2.0 which I have been using for 3 or 4 years now and love it and don't want to upgrade to a newer one. (I have tried them and don't like them). 3 days ago I got a message saying it has been shutdown to an unexpected error. Since then I can't get it working again and if I do manage to, it only plays a movie for about a minute or two then shuts down again. I have uninstalled/installed many times in the last 3 days and even formatted my pc 6 times and tried installing it again but it just won't work right anymore. I am on Windows 7 64bit. I have been using this setup for years and now it doesn't work. What is the problem? I have spent a few hours trying to read but can't find an answer to help.

  • There are no upgrades to Nero MediaHome 4 from Nero. I think the last version was 4.5.8 but the only update I see at nero.com requires purchasing the update disc for $12.99. It also assumes you're using a purchased serial number. What bothers me is that, up until about a year ago, if you wanted to update your version using a download, there was a complex determination, depending on your version, as to what you could update to. That option no longer exists. If you're using a purchased serial number and are willing to pay the price for the disc, go for it.

    The other option is to use Nero MediaHome as it exists for Nero v10-v14. You would have to buy the Streaming plug-in, and possibly, other plug-ins. Sorry I'm not being more thorough at this late hour.

    On the other hand, you said it's been working in Win 7 so it sounds like an update could have caused the problem. If you have a system restore point to before when the problem started, you could try the restore.

    Elsewise, it could be a problem with .net framework or the C++ redistributable. To check that, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories. Right click on the Command Prompt and select "run as administrator". Type in SFC /Scannow. Let it run. If it says it found and fixed anything, reboot. Does that help?

  • No. I didn't add any new hardware or software. I don't use windows updates and I did try the restore points. It just started screwing up on me. I had formatted and did fresh installs of Windows 8 times since it started and it just doesn't seem to want to work anymore. It's a disk that came with my Bluray player and came with a serial number. But I have given up on it now. I have tried Serviio and it seems to be working perfect for me. If I could figure out how to keep my folder structure with v14, I would have used it but I don't like all my files in one folder.

  • If you don't install Windows updates, all bets are off on how the Nero software will behave. Without the Windows updates, you lose security protection from Microsoft and, it's possible, that you got a virus or malware.

    NMH 4 is not Win 8 compatible. You might be able to install it by setting the installation .exe file to a compatibility mode before installing.

    I don't know what you mean by keeping your folder structure with v14.

  • I format and install windows 7 and all updates and whatever apps I use at the beginning of each month because i like doing it. Other than that, no updates during the month. I like to leave my pc on and not shut it off. Everything always worked perfectly for me. When nmh stopped working, I formatted again. Installed Windows 7 x64 8 times (not Windows 8) and Installed nmh4. Works for 1 or 2 minutes then stops. No virus. No malware. No new hardware. Just the same as I've done every month the last 50 times since i got it. It just will not stay working.

    When I tried v14 and had all my folders added, when I went to my tv to pick something, everything was in 1 folder. I couldn't get it to keep my folders. I like to have my movies in seperate folders than the kids shows. It was just a big mess.

  • I've been having the same problem, the newer mediahome sucks as it scans all your folders and put thumb's on there page, I like just to pick which folder and only show that.
