ok lets try getting this solved!.. :)
To start; open the windows 8 start screen, and types services, select settings and click on local services.
Once there, click on the name tab to place everything is alphabetical order.
now find these services and make sure they are running and set to automatic :
-device association service
-upnp device host
-media center extender service
once this is done, restart the following services so that all connected services also restart:
upnp device host.
let me know how it goes after those steps.
