Code:
11/25/2005 12:56:15 PM Create new wizard setup


I installed the following:

1st try:
MP 0.1.3 and .NET 1.1
2nd try:
MP 0.1.3 and .NET 1.1 sp1
3rd try:
MP 0.2.0 and .NET 2.0
4th try
MP 0.2.0 with latest CVS build and .NET 2.0

I have checked for updates from Microsoft for both my OS and for .NET and I have all the latest versions.

Synopsis:

Basically, I cannot even get the program to run. It crashes before it even launches. I try to launch MediaPortal Setup Wizard shortcut/link and I get an error. I try to launch the configuration.exe directly and I get an error.

At first, I was getting .NET style error windows which gave me no explanation of what the error was(also, these errors differed in the process numbers each time, for obvious reasons):

error1.jpg


Then, after re-installing .NET (starting with 1.1 and moving on to 2.0) about 5 times, and installing the latest CVS, I got this error:

error2.jpg



Clicking 'What data...blah blah?' gives me this:

EventType : clr20r3 P1 : configuration.exe P2 : 1.0.2155.25721
P3 : 43870ee3 P4 : system.drawing P5 : 2.0.0.0 P6 : 4333aeaf
P7 : 7a8 P8 : 6c P9 : system.argumentexception

So I made sure...for the THIRD TIME that I had all the latest drivers, programs, and so on.

I ran DXDIAG and I have 9.0c
I checked Hauppage, and I have the latest driver.
I went to Microsft 10 times to make sure I didnt miss any updates to the .NET software or my OS.

During all of this, I un-installed, rebooted, re-installed everything from scratch numerous times.

I am at a loss.

Normally I am good at debugging and finding the errors, but this time I cant even find anything in the forums about this issue.

PLease help if you can or point to a discussion I might have missed--WITHOUT FLAMING ME.

Download this and extract to the root of your MP installation folder and then try again please.

I'll let you know now that there's a < 50% chance that this is going to do any good but IMO its the first thing to try once all else fails - seeing as you aren't getting any good info to pass onto us.

Good news...sort of

It launches fine if I run MediaPortal.exe...but I still cannot run configure.exe.


The other good news is that everything except the TV card works

give me a moment...I am using the wizard and it seems to be working now.

I cannot thank you enough

This is an amazingly beautiful and well thought out application.

I may have to devote some time to some GUI elements

Ok, so it seems like this isue is not related to the one I have, but I think windows is fucked up on my mashine so I think I need a reinstallation of that when I can find some time...
