Where can I find mcrdsvc.exe, mcrmgr.exe, adn the rest of the other programs to allow them access ?

From here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/911728

C:\Windows\ehome\McrMgr.exe
C:\Windows\ehome\Mcx2Prov.exe
C:\Windows\ehome\ehshell.exe

As I only use avast! free, I cannot show how to add these to the firewall, sorry...

Well, I am very disappointed that no-one from Avast can tell me what I need to do to let the Xbox in. When it comes to renewal I will be looking for someone with better support.

Anyhow, I have found this which works perfect even on my PS3 as well.

Hi ekkl,

I am still working on the XBOX compatibility. There seems to be a bug in the rule processing part of the firewall. It took a few days until we got an XBOX in the office (sadly for us it is not considered a standard testing equipment), now I have it reproduced and even know how to fix it - still trying to figure out how to deliver the fix in the best way. There should be a program update (beta) in few days, hopefully I'll manage to get my fix into the update.

Lukas.

Hi ekkl, if can now try the latest beta - the xbox thing should be working there.

Thanks.
