Hi

I was wonderig what is the best way to update/upgrade from RC1 to RC2?

What I did was installing .NET 2.0 and then uninstall MediaPortal RC1. I copied the "left-overs" (the remaining files after the uninstallation) to a temp folder. Then I installed RC2, add copied the files from the temp folder back to the installatio directory. This way I thought I don't need to reconfigure everything...

Is this process correct or is there any other (bette?) way?

Cheers,

Matio

PS: Happy ew year!

    Hi,

    its better to install RC2 over the old not deleted contents in the MediaPortal directory. This way you will also keep the settings and you will not keep old files causing problems. Otherwise you might overwrite newer files with your old temp files...

    Just make sure to start MP Setup before runnning MP itself and check your settings.
