“Windows cannot open this program because it has been prevented by a software restriction policy. For more information contact your system administrator.”

The Problem:-

Anytime I attempt to launch Windows Media Center or Media Center Extender I receive the following popup error:-

“Windows cannot open this program because it has been prevented by a software restriction policy. For more information contact your system administrator.”

Why it is happening:-

If the program under  ” set access and computer defaults” is disabled it may happen.

Resolution:-

Enable the Windows Media Center  in ‘set program access and defaults’ under Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs.Restart Windows Media Center.
