I just setup a new Windows 8 VM, and I cannot seem to access a DLNA server from Windows Explorer.
It is accessible under Network Locations though:
If I start Windows Media Player I can see the Media Server. I can also see it as a Network Location.
But because it is not available under 'Computer', the Store apps are not detecting the Media Server. The same server is available under Computers from my Surface and the same store app is able to access the media server.
What am I missing?
I also have a nagging feeling that this happened after I setup Windows Media Player and that it was working before, but I can't say for sure.
