What works

The program installs and runs reasonably well as long as you avoid the "Start" page.

Many hours of music playback, tag editing, cover art retrieval, smart playlists, and music analyzation performed.

What does not

If you navigate away from the "Start" page Media Center crashes (appears to be due to a stub implementation of shell/msimtf:DllCanUnloadNow()).

Unfortunatley this is the default view upon installation so will crash as soon as you try to go anywhere. The workaround is to goto Tools->Options->Startup and change Startup Interface Location to something like "Audio". Click OK then restart Media Center.

Also note that other views that use shdocvw such as some of the Now Playing views that show track information can trigger this crash as well.


What was not tested

Video functions, portable player interaction, ripping... many things other than what was mentioned in "what works"
