    Hi.

    In Mediaportal and TV-Server setup, and under installation of 1.3 RC, comes warning that it can not run on Windows 8.

    Was it not compatible with Windows 8?



    I am running Windows 8 Enterprise 64Bit.

    You should be able to install and run it on Win8 but it is not officially supported yet. Thats why the warning.

    Yes, it install fine.
    It was the warning I would report in, because on the download page it says that 1.3 RC it can run with Windows 8.

    A another problem on Windows 8. If I run Mediaportal through the shortcut on the desktop, it starts up in full screen og focus is on mediaportal. But do i use the MPtray, it dos not start up in completely fullscreen. Windows can still be seen in the button of the screen. I must push the mediabutton againg, before the focus is on mediaportal and Mediaportal then switch to fullscreen.

    Please provide completely debug logs and screenshots of the issue (You can use F11 in MP to make a sreenshot which is put in your MyPictures\MediaPortal Screenshots folder.

    Are you talking about the taskbar begin infront? or does it really start in Windowed mode?

    Win 8 compatibility is fixed for the Final release.

    @clahs if you still have problems with fullscreen / windowed mode, please post a new bug report and attach full debug logs.

    Setting this to No Bug.

    I'm seeing the messages about an unsupported OS while trying to install 1.3 (see attachment). I recently upgraded to Windows 8 Pro with Media Center from Windows 7 SP1. I originally installed MP 1.2.3 but was having issues with the EPG not working so I uninstalled it and installed 1.3. Anyone have any thoughts as to why I'm seeing the OS incompatibility error?

    Oh, I see. I guess I was just confused because on the Download page it says this:

    MediaPortal 1 Development


    Latest development version: 1.3.0 RC
    released on 05. Feb 2013
    News | Changelog | Requirements
    Supports Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and 8 (32/64bit)​
    This would lead me to believe that 1.3.0 RC supports Windows 8. But apparently this is not correct.​

    1.3.0 RC works without problems on win 8. This install message is only a warning that it is not fully tested on win 8. but it works since weeks on my htpc without Problems.
