By default, Windows Store Applications are not allowed to send network traffic to the local Computer (localhost 127.0.0.1)

To circumvent this restriction you need to allow loopback for Emby Theater in Windows.

To do this, just download the "Windows 8 Loopback Exemption Manager"
https://www.telerik....fiddler/add-ons

Once downloaded, just run the Windows8LoopbackManager.exe file. Look for Emby Theater in the list of apps. mark the checkbox and click save.

Now go back to Emby Theater and you'll be able to connect.

After installing the following update:

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3194496)

 

The loopback manager comes up empty

Neither emby theater or the theater app will work.

Is this still the case?

This is still required, but the loopback tool works fine in my testing.

Can I ask out of curiosity, why you would use the store app rather than installing Emby Theater?

The store app will generally be easier on windows surface tablets. On desktop computers I would suggest using our desktop app that is downloaded from our website. Thanks.

There is not more executable file available anywhere on your links, please give us another solution to make the windows store app work on a local machine ?

 

 

 

--> for all those looking for an available loopback tool :

https://www.telerik....fiddler/add-ons

 

Install it, it will launch at the end of installation, or run the program yourself

Launch windows store Emby app

Hit refresh in the loopback tool

Select and click the checkbox for Emby theater (if both clients are running ... close the desktop app)

Hit save

 

You are done.

Took me 2 weeks to have that fixed so hopefully this will help some people (but windows store app does not display pictures when scrolling so just stick with the dektop app !)

FYI the server has this built in and the new 4.0 release has made some fixes for it. Thanks.
