    Still present in RC3 with latest CVS.

    The setup does start, but is not shown, due to the always-on-top option.

    So simply give the setup program the same 'always on top' settings, that should put it ahead of the main program when F2 is used.

    I did, after confirming it with a few ppl on channel.

    The actual bug still exists. I simply added a workaround to this thread.

    If you are unable to popup F2-Settings from within MediaPortal due to a conflicting setting of MP itself, then F2 should be disabled.

    Eventhough it's a minor bug, it's still a bug when result is not what is expected.

    And to me it would be easy fixed:

    Method A:

    1. Start setup via F2
    2. Setup disables always-on-top
    3. Setup runs and can be used to configure.
    4. Upon exit and the usual restart of MP, the always-on-top is restored.

    Method B:

    1. Setup simply uses the always-on-top setting for itself as well, at a higher Z-Index then MediaPortal so it will be ontop of it.

    Just my $0.02
