    Hi,

    normally, my HTPC will start MP on startup as I've checked this in configuration.
    From time to time, I find a reason to do a RDP login to my HTPC which then leads to a non responding MP. No big issue in ending the task, but I always fear that a database might get corrupted, especially when I log into the machine remotely while my kids or wife are using MP and I do a forced quit.

    Would the be an easy way to recognize a RDP login and not to start MP then?

    Merry Christmas to all of you :)

    As I remember the MP will autostart when the user who installed it login. Try to create an another user for remote desktop.

    Actually, if you MANAGE MePo via RDP, then you WILL get autostart set next time you log in, it matters not which account installed as.

    To fix autostart, run msconfig and deselect mediaportal for th3e account you use for RDP - this can be via RDP session or console login.

    Ideally I would like MePo not to start EVER in RDP [as I forget and end up locking RDP sessions, as closing MePo can be challenge in RDP:)
