    Re: Extensions Plugin for MpeInstaller (Updated on 30-07-2010)

    hi Dukus.

    This plugin is GREEEAT! This is the update feature that Mepo has been missing for years!

    This should be PERMANENT part of Mepo! - I am sick and tired installing plugins manually through the forum + updating/checking for updates on a regularly basis.

    Installed you version 0.5.2 on 2 computers, and found 2 "bugs".(See attached screenshot)

    1:
    When starting the Extensions plugin, the menu pops up, but no menuitems is present - Click to the right to get plugins list, and back left again, and the menu shows perfectly.



    2:
    I have the Danish TV & Radio logo plugin installed. Extensions found an update, and installed, and restarted.
    But when i now enter both Extensions & MPEinstaller the plugin is present 2 times. 1.0.5 version & 1.0.7 version.

    Ran an update on 1.0.5 version again, and this corrected the issue.

    Seems like it did not get proberly installed the first time - Is this an error in MPeinstaller or your extensions plugin?

    3:
    When installing plugin(ex. infoservice), the installer restarts MePo. But after installation there is still no Menu item - Installer says it is installed, but it does not appear anywhere in menues. You need to start Configuration.exe and close again, before menu item is available.

    Hi dukus,
    first big :D for the latest beta 0.5.2!
    I´d like to suggest some enhancements (if possible):
    • On the new info screen there should be all the options available currently only available via the right click context menu like install, uninstall, never check for updates, show screenshots, show changelogs. This way the context menu is no longer needed and the info screen would be really helpful and the central point for these actions.
    • There is a typing error in the menu to install an extension "requaied" should be "required".
    • Support of language files other than English. I made up one for German - would be nice if this could be implemented (see attachment)
    • During installation of an extension the installer very often seems to "freeze", although continuing to install. Many users encountered this problem thinking the installer crashed. Mabe you can fix this?

    As dukus does not use the standard strings_xx.xml file, the language tool does nothing ....

    Hmm, don´t know what you mean - the file is named en-US.xml and it doesn´t open in the language tool. Ahh - my file is named de_DE.xml, not de-DE.xml... :oops:
