    From previous problems reported, could well be your config file is corrupt.

    CLR20r3 error when booting MediaPortal : Solved

    I got a similar error (though I didn't look at your logs). Basically, it turned out my MediaPortal.exe.config (as hinted at by the System.Configuration phrase in the error message) was a bunch of NUL bytes (as seen in a text editor). I grabbed the .config from another machine and it worked. I have no idea what caused this since I just installed a video driver or two, installed Vista SP2, and and rebooted the box via unplugging the power cable (out of frustration since my SVideo feed wasn't working to my big ole 27 Inch Sony tube.)


    Here is the guts of the .config file (your results may vary).

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <configuration>
    <startup>
    <requiredRuntime version="v2.0.50727" />
    <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727" />
    </startup>
    <runtime>
    <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
    <probing privatePath="plugins/windows" />
    </assemblyBinding>
    </runtime>
    <appSettings>
    <add key="version" value="1.0.1.0" />
    <add key="edtftp.log.level" value="ALL" />
    </appSettings>
    </configuration>

    That's in Program Files(x86)/Team Mediaportal/MediaPortal

    Hope that helps.

    would i have those files as this is my first install?

    what i get is the box with black background and green writing, it starts going through the motions then stops and shows the message above.

    Hi

    Yes, as this is part of the build, the Mediaportal.exe.config will be present. I would suspect during 1st install attempt, there was a problem an file was corrupt.

    Would suggest you delete the c:/Program Files(x86)/Team MediaPortal directory & down load the MP1.2.3 install package again (just in case a glitch in down load has broken something).

    Redo the install - and run as 'install' not 'down load components'

    Are you setting it up to run TV and if so, is it single seat setup (you watch TV, video etc on single system)?

    Your hardware should be fully capable of handling MePo, but is it dedicated to MePo or running other programs (should not be relevant to current problem I'd hope).

    Good luck - JCMP

    Hi

    That there is no Team MediaPortal dir in on Program Files(x86) is odd - are you running installation as Admin - if you don't have permissions to write, you can't install - can't see why Win 7 Home Premium would be problematic.

    Cheers - JCMP

    Hi, you can check if all required files are present in the install directory - iirc, with newer MP versions, some requirements changed. Following files should be present: 27.04.2016 23:42 919.552 AMCUpdater.exe 21.12.2015 11:56 5.501 AMCUpdater.exe.config 04.02.2016 08:53 24.064 Common.Utils.dll...

    Sorry, I'm out of ideas then. This seems to be a Microsoft software issue, so the best people to help you would be Microsoft.
