    Cannot "Turn on media streaming"


    After upgrading from Win 8.1 to Win 10 media streaming is off and when the "Turn on media streaming" button is selected there is no effect, no error message, no action. Since this feature was on before the upgrade I'm assuming some dependent services where either turned off or not installed. I've verified WMP is fully functional with shared services on. I've successfully joined a Homegroup, allowing me to play media from other computers, so I'm not looking at my firewall for now. My other ACER laptop which was also upgraded to Win 10 from 8.1 has no problem with this service. I'm hoping someone can point me to a troubleshooting guide/white paper that shows all the dependencies. Thanks.

    Unless you plan on playing using DLNA on a TV or other streaming device, you can do a standard network share. Usually sfc /scannow and the Dism fix corrects this behavior.
