K, could you do two things:

1. Make sure that mphook isn't running at the same time as mptray.
2. Close the running instance of mptray and restart with the following command line

mptray /log

hit the green button and post back the content of mptray.log (it is created in the same folder as the mptray executable).

mphook isn't running anymore.

I got this logfile first:

18/10/2005 17:11:29 ShellApplication.Run: Starting...
18/10/2005 17:11:29 Device: \\?\hid#vid_0471&pid_0815&col01#7&2659155b&0&0000#{4d1e55b2-f16f-11cf-88cb-001111000030}
18/10/2005 17:11:35 ShellApplication.OnClick: The system cannot find the file specified
18/10/2005 17:12:08 ShellApplication.OnClick: The system cannot find the file specified

Then I put mptray.exe & mphook.dll in the MP folder and launched it from there, I could then launch MP with the green button, the log file for this looks like.....

18/10/2005 17:15:13 ShellApplication.Run: Starting...
18/10/2005 17:15:13 Device: \\?\hid#vid_0471&pid_0815&col01#7&2659155b&0&0000#{4d1e55b2-f16f-11cf-88cb-001111000030}
18/10/2005 17:15:57 ShellApplication.OnClick: MediaPortal is already running

So mptray tries to launch mediaportal.exe without any path?

Thats correct cheezey, with the app in its correct place you can do the following:

mptray /register:all

mptray /register

The first registers the application to start with Windows for all users, the second for the current user only. mptray /unregister works in the same fashion.

    cheers Smirnuff... It doesn't launch MP now no matter how hard i play with my nipple.

    There's still a minor problem from within MP along the same lines though.

    I don't use the mouse much from within MP during normal use but i have noticed something during testing. When i'm in another screen apart from the homescreen such as 'My TV' or 'Guide', that by moving the mouse around it will eventually cause it to go back to the homescreen, kinda as if TGB had been pressed.

    To me this is minor as i don't mouse around in MP, and does this happen to anyone else? it could be just me i suppose...
