    Since the Windows Technical Preview is officially launched, we're preparing MediaPortal for this upcoming OS.
    MediaPortal 1.9 Final doesn't install on this Technical Preview.

    Since there are already a few forum posts, we've created a build for you to test on this upcoming OS.
    Use the link below to download the installer. It's the same as 1.9 Final (+ few new features).

    JIRA issue:
    https://issues.team-mediaportal.com/browse/MP1-4574



    The most important thing for now is to test if the install process goes well.
    Let us know how it goes and don't forget to post logs if you run into issues! :D
    If you run into issues, and have the possibility to test this installer also on a Win 8 (or 7) system, it would be nice to know if the issue(s) on Windows 10 OS also happen on 'older' OS. ;)

    Confirmed, the installer is around 64mb, so something seems not correct :)
