    I was using MediaPortal just last night with no issues at all, but since today, it doesn't autostart, if I try to run it or MediaPortal configuration, nothing happens, no crash no nothing. The logs are completely empty. It feels like some Windows update has messed up my HTPC. According to Windows update, this was installed yesterday:
    KB226702 (version 1.349.2003.0)

    Running Watchdog with the first option gives me an exception "Root element is missing".

    Code:

    Running Watchdog with the third option gives me a zip file that is attached.

    I've tried re-installing MediaPortal on top of my current installation, but it's the same. Nothing at all happens when I try to run it.

    What about windows restore?
    Also you Mediaportal.xml is stange, it size is 80 KB but in fact it's empty. Maybe you should delete it from MP folder and retry?

    I just copied over a backup and now it's working. It must have been some sort of corruption of important files.

    Thanks!
