    We have just released MediaPortal 1.32 Halloween

    Thanks to the great work of our new developer Pablik we are now able to present you a x64 version of MediaPortal (starting with MP 1.32 Pre-Release)! Pablik has done a really great and succesfull work to port all the necessary libraries of MP to work as x64 installation. Besides of that he also ported some plugins to be compatible with x64 - especially a new version of WorldWeather. Inspired from his work other plugin designers also ported their plugins to x64, so now we can offer a x64 version of MP with the most important plugins working flawlessly with this x64 version. In general it can be said that MP runs faster and smoother as never before under x64! So our great Thanks goes to Pablik and all contributors of the x64 version of MP 1.32 Release and Pre-Release!

    BTW: The thread from Pablik and other contributors including ZIPs and MPEIs for the reworked plugins can be found here

    Documentation of new features will be added to: Wiki - What's Newhttps://www.team-mediaportal.com/wiki/display/MediaPortal1/1.18.x


    Installation, Upgrade, Download and Feedback​

    Installation​

    microsoft net framework 4 e711e
    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​

    MS SQL
    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​

    update-icon
    Upgrading from MP 1.2.0 Beta or later to 1.32 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!

    television-icon
    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​

    Problem;-

    In the above post you offer both x 32 & 64 bit version of MP BUT on the Download page following the link for x86&64 bit downloads only downloads the 32 bit version.

    Well, I suppose I don't understand what you mean.
    Here, when I click on these 2 link, I have 2 differents downloaded files.
    Well I am not too sure where that page you showed in your screenshot is located???
    The page I am talking about is the one that you go to when you click on the "download" link at the top of the Forum page as shown again in the screenshot below. The links marked with a red box get you the x86 download the tiny one market in a green box gets you the x64 one! I suggest that given, I think, most people will arrive on this page the link for the x64 version is not obvious and is anyway way too small, it needs to be a seperate link as with the page you have shown and in the OP in this thread.:mad:

    I agree with, even if clicking X86 and X64 links give 2 differents downloads ;)
