    Hi all..
    My dedicated HTPC client will not go past the " Initializing DirectX' screen when booting up.
    I get an error which reads :

    " This sample cannot run in a desktop
    window with the current display settings.
    Please change your desktop settings to a
    16- or 32-bit display mode and re-run this
    sample. "

    If i close this error pop-up and restart MP, all is good again, until i reboot the HTPC .
    Also, i am running 32-bit display mode with Aero enabled.

    So far, i have :
    - Updated MP from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2
    - Re-installed DirectX
    - Un-installed and re-installed display drivers

    It first happened with Vista SP1... When i updated to SP2 the problem went away until a fews days later when it re-appeared out of the blue...

    I have attached my logs for all to see...

    I am running multiseat setup and the problem HTPC being a dedicated client...

    thank you
