Yea so i want to share media with my xbox 360 but when i try to activate sharing on WMP 11 it dosnt work so ive been checking the services under administrative tools and i try to turn on windows media player network sharing service but i get error 1068 the dependency group failed message

this is probably on here already ive looked at some but that dont fit the same problems as mine.

could it be that the system does not have a common workgroup?

im not sure what a common workgroup is, but if thats a possibility how do i go around fixing it or checking if thats so?

not a clue regarding xbox but windows networking requires that all connected equipment has to be on the same workgroup. If you right click my computer and then properties - computer name - you will see the workgroup of your pc. Mine is mshome the default is workgroup. If you can get into the settup of the xbox perhaps there is a workgroup setting you can enter.

wait, no thats not the problem here the problem isnt that i cant connect to the xbox 360 the problem is i cant activate windows media player 11's media sharing.
