    Hi, not sure what I have done but my "Installed Extension List" is empty. I have many extensions installed and are all working correctly.
    I have tried using the "Clear Cache" button and re-downloading the list but still nothing.

    Any ideas??

    It sounds like your missing the 'InstalledExtensions.xml' in your C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Installer\V2 folder.

    If you've done a recent update, you should have a backup of this file (that is: if the installer created a BACKUP folder in C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal). When you put that back, they should show up again.

    Backup file is a year old, bugger.
    Any way to rebuild the required XML file?

    Me neither, @HomeY. Probably you could ask @ltfearme and @offbyone. I think it's impossible since this file is only storage for such data. Only thing we can do is to add file backup feature on future releales. Sorry.

    Stupid idea how to get some of your installed extensions if you know programming.
    You can parse your plugins folder to get plugin versions from assemblies. Then you could cross reference plugin dlls and its versions and knownextension file to locate entries of installed plugins. After that serialize it back to installed.extensions.xml. Dunno how to get skins. Probably just paarse names of skin folders and skin versions

    Or just re-install the plugins through MPEI (which might be the fastest/easiest way).

    Same happened to me, went from 1.7.1 to 1.8.0 and the Installed Extensions lists only Titan Extended (which I think was installed during the MP installation process). I've attached my InstalledExtensions.xml file from the C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Installer\V2 folder and it seems to list my extensions in the xml file just not on the MPEI program.
    Any ideas?

    Your file has only Titan Extended data. Is there backup folder after update?
