    Installation, Upgrade, Download and Feedback
    Installation

    Since we switched to .NET4 you need to make sure you have.NET4 installed on your computer (not needed if you are on Windows 8 because it comes with .NET4, but you NEED the .NET 3.5 features enabled!). Otherwise you are not able to install MediaPortal and the installer just quits.

    Download-Link: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer)

    Aside from that when doing a clean installation of the this Release there is nothing else to worry about.

    Microsoft SQL Server
    If you plan to use MSSQL server for TV it is necessary to install it yourself before installing Mediaportal with TV Server. Instructions for previous versions are on the wiki, note that new versions were not checked for 100% compatibility.

    For Windows XP, Vista - MSSQL 2005 - SQL Server 2005


    For Windows 7 or later - MSSQL 2008 - SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2 Express


    For Windows 7 or later - MSSQL versions above 2008, there's no official documentation from Mediaportal but you can install and configure it based on the articles above, google or documentation from Microsoft. Compatibility has not been tested.

    Upgrade
    Upgrading from MP 1.2.0 Beta or later to 1.29 Release

    All MediaPortal 1.2.0 Beta installations can be upgraded to this Release without losing your settings.

    Plugins:
    If you are running MediaPortal 1.6.0 or earlier, then it is possible that some of your previously installed plugins will be shown as incompatible after the upgrade to this Release! Whether or not a plugin is incompatible depends on the MediaPortal subsystems the plugin uses.
    All plugins that work for the 1.7.1 HotFix release, should also work with the this Release.

    Upgrading Extensions:
    The easiest way to upgrade your extensions is by launching the MediaPortal Extension Installer, and let it check for updated versions. However this only works for extensions that use our MPEI system. If the author of the extension releases it as a stand alone installer, you must contact them for an updated version.

    General note about Upgrades
    Manually stop TV-Service!


    On some systems our installer is not able to update the TV-Server installation because its files are locked or the service can not be stopped.
    For upgrades to this Release we recommend that you manually stop the TV-Service and make sure, via Windows Task Manager (enable the "all users" option), that the TvService.exe process is really gone before starting to upgrade.

    Custom TV-Service properties

    If you manually changed the properties of the TV-Service (like restart on error options), then you must redo these changes after the upgrade. The installer is not able to save and restore your custom service properties when it installs the new version of the TV-Service.

    Feedback

    Seems that I've upset someone here with my initial enquiry.:(
    I can assure members that this was most definitely not my intention.

    It's okay, we did delay the release. But not by choice, so sorry, there will be a pre-release the other day, it's already in the process of packing and shipping...
