Hi Vviiv5 - KB913800 requires that you first install Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. Here are steps you can use to install that:
1. Install the .NET Framework 1.1 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=262D25E3-F589-4842-8157-034D1E7CF3A3&displaylang=en if you haven't already.
2. Install .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=a8f5654f-088e-40b2-bbdb-a83353618b38&displaylang=en if you haven't already.
3. Install Update Rollup 2 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=E5DAF37E-E243-4410-BC51-81CF2B56FE6E&displaylang=en.

Hope this helps!
i know this is an old thread now, but iv searched and searched trying to install rollup 2. its saying i need media centre 2005, trust me i have it. iv checked that my string is 3.0 i'v uninstalled net framework and re-installed it, still nothing. the only thin i have noticed is that im not 100% sure if i have rollup1 installed. iv downloaded every media center update on microsofts site and NOTHING will install!(i was hoping something would fix the problem) thanks for your help.
Hi Fellowsuk - I'm sorry for the hassle that this issue is causing for you. Update Rollup 2 is checking for the following 2 registry values to determine that you have Media Center 2005:
Installed = 1 (REG_DWORD)
Ident = 3.0 or 3.1 (REG_SZ)
Both of these must exist, be one of the specified values, and have the specified data type.
You may want to try the manual install steps listed at http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/05/22/604380.aspx and see if that helps work around this as well.
unfortunatly both of those values are present and accounted for! im having alook at the manual installation, thank you for your amazingly quick reply.
