    Hi,



    I recently updated from 1.10pre to 1.10. Not sure if this was present with pre or something I am doing that is stupid but when I fire up the external extensions manager, run an update and ensure both 'show only' options are unchecked - I see no list of installed plugins, it's completely blank. I do see plugins when I move the the 'known plugins' tab.

    Is this something known or am I doing something wrong?

    Is there any other way to uninstall a plugin (not just disable) without the extension manager?

    Thanks

    I never got a reply and never managed to fix the issue (or figure out what caused it). What I did was just reinstall all the plugins with the extension manager that I knew where installed. The act of reinstalling made them visible in the extension manager.

    Probably InstalledPlugins.xml is gone for some reason. If you don't have it's copy this list is lost.

    Hi

    I had same with MP1.12 - updating something while MePo was running [silly I know:oops:

    I just reinstalled the plugins [only using WorldWeather, MovingPictures & MPTVSeries] - all worked, no issues, no additional work. I know what I should have done is found problem [lost or broken InstalledPlugins.xml as Edalex suggests above] and fixed it properly but was having a lazy day:rolleyes:

    TTFN - JCMP.
