    [further infos missing] MP2.2 client crashes on open (after upgrade)

    The problem with using "Everyone" is that it's a localized group name. The group name in the French locale is "Tout le Monde"; it's something else in German. The SID is language-independent.

    [further infos missing] MP2.2 client crashes on open (after upgrade)

    I'm not familiar with the .Net HTTP server. But I found some documentation that says that it allows you to share a port by routing requests based on the URI namespace. See this page. It ought to be possible to log whatever arguments are passed to the Microsoft code. "Access Denied" should...

    [further infos missing] MP2.2 client crashes on open (after upgrade)

    The IP binding is because, as noted earlier, there is an interface with a subnet that is not routed off-host. Things could get very confusing if that were used by MP. Also, from time to time other IP addresses are added to the host, Services are run on these IP addresses with address+port...

    [further infos missing] MP2.2 client crashes on open (after upgrade)

    To gather some more data, I tried updating 2.1.3 to 2.2 again. First, I used netstat -b -q (with 2.1.3 running). Port 55555 is not listed in use. I checked the firewall; it is open to all connections from the local subnet (IPv4 and IPv6). Next, I updated to 2.2. I assume you meant "netsh...

    [further infos missing] MP2.2 client crashes on open (after upgrade)

    No doubt. However, remember that the previous version of MediaPortal is not sensitive to whatever it is. Yes, I have a LightScribe DVD burner. The errors are expected. The search was too quick. I looked this up previously - the errors are expected. See this official Microsoft web page...

    [further infos missing] MP2.2 client crashes on open (after upgrade)

    It's not that quick a thing. Took about 2 hrs the first time (Windows didn't want to copy the ProgramData files, so I had to find a 3rd party utility.) The second time took about 45 minutes to uninstall, test, revert db & re-install. Same failure with 2.2. Successful reversion to 2.1.3. The...

    [further infos missing] MP2.2 client crashes on open (after upgrade)

    After stoppping the service and backing up ProgramData\Team MediaPortal, I renamed the database and uninstalled MP 2.2. The setup file for 2.1.1 is no longer available on GitHub, so I installed 2.1.3. 2.1.3 client opens normally. So the issue was introduced between 2.1.3 and 2.2. Let me know...

    [further infos missing] MP2.2 client crashes on open (after upgrade)

    To be clear: it is not possible to install .NET 4.7.1 when 4.7.2 is installed. However, 4.7.2 should be compatible. I still can't run the client. I assume that I can't revert to 2.1.1 because of the database upgrade. Let me know if I can provide further information or if there's something...

    [further infos missing] MP2.2 client crashes on open (after upgrade)

    I did. When I tried to install 4.7.1 manually (from the given link), the installer exits with "4.7.1 or a higher version is already installed". That version is 4.7.2. In theory, the only difference should be bug fixes & you shouldn't depend on the patchlevel. (Of course, Microsoft does make...

    The Wiki says: The MediaPortal installer will automatically identify, download and install missing system components: The list includes .net. In any case, .net 4.7.2 is already installed. The repair error seems to be an issue with dual languages installed on this machine. (Which again...

    [Evaluate] Fix the "can't mimize from the title bar" bug

    See [no Bug] - No minimize icon in title bar when window is "always on top" I believe it's a bug, but you seem to think it's a missing feature. Boot/Trunk - Bug/Feature - either way you spell it, it should be fixed. :-) Thanks.

    MP2 - V2.1 No minimize icon in title bar when window is "always on top"

    We don't agree on that characterization. MP2 is expected to conform to the standard Windows UI. I consider it a bug that the code removed a standard windows UI component (minimize) for no reason.

    MP2 - V2.1 No minimize icon in title bar when window is "always on top"

    >> You can't combine the two properties. But I can. Even with MP. Enable "minimize" for the Power Icon. (settings general system shutdown "minimize MediaPortal".) With the window in "always on top", click the power icon, then "minimize". The window will minimize. And when re-opened, will...

    MP2 - V2.1 No minimize icon in title bar when window is "always on top"

    It seems that someone thought that minimize conflicts with "always on top". From a user perspective, it doesn't. I run MP2.1 pre 2 as a small window. I "set it to always on top" so I can look at it while waiting for large compiles... But minimize it when I really need the full screen. There...

    MP2 - V2.1 No crash dump; unhandled exception cascade

    I had the MP2.1 pre 2 client crash - but have found no data to submit. So this is a report of failing to log a crash... I was viewing TV, when the screen froze. It's OTA, and it's raining, so that's not completely unexpected. I wasn't paying careful attention - it may have been frozen for a...

    [Bug] [MP2-633] Client app always opens on primary screen when in window mode

    I also see this with MP2 2.1 pre2. I have 2 16:9 monitors, and run MP2 client in the lower right corner of the secondary monitor (as a small window), "always on top". If I close the client from that position, re-launching causes it to open in the lower right corner of the primary monitor...

    MP2 - V2.1 MP2-632: ResourceServer deadlock on shutdown

    I don't remember exactly how the port was chosen; I certainly didn't expect my desktop to have IIS installed! As with anything I install, I went through the settings to see what needed attention. "0" is an invalid port number; had the default been "Automatic" I would not have changed it.

    MP2 - V2.1 MP2-632: ResourceServer deadlock on shutdown

    The http server port was set to 80. (Which I did not expect to be in use; I tracked it down to pid 4 "System NT Kernel & System" & then discovered that IIS was installed for some reason - perhaps it's a default in Windoze 10. I'll remove it at the next reboot.) Meantime, I changed the port...

    MP2 - V2.1 MP2-632: ResourceServer deadlock on shutdown

    There are more than two subnets.... But note that the client and server are on the same box, so subnet really doesn't matter. Anyhow, per your suggestion I bound to a routable Ipv4 address and to localhost (127.0.0.1 & ::1) No change. It's still the case that closing the client leaves a...

    MP2 - V2.1 MP2-632: ResourceServer deadlock on shutdown

    I don't believe the HTTP errors relate to the client GUI not starting. I'm mildly curious about that, but it doesn't seem to affect anything .. that I can see. Anyhow, yes I have Norton Internet security. BUT that can't be the issue, since the client works once (a) the service is killed and...

    This morning, it's working again. I restarted the service, killed the client in task manager, & restarted the client. I had tried this several times yesterday with no success. The machine was idle - except that the Windows task scheduler executed a zap2xml task. This deposits a new file for...

    When it comes to MP, I am indeed a "classical computer dummy", and trying to stay that way :-). Otherwise, I'm reasonably competent. Where would I find the old install log? I looked in Program Data\Team MediaPortal ... and while there are lots of logs, none appeared to be an install log. To...
