    Description of Change
    When we use the DeployTool to install/upgrade MediaPortal, the checkboxes for LAVFilters & TitanExtended are always checked, even when they are already installed.

    This branch should fix the detection of the installation and set the checkboxes according to the install status.

    Tickets : https://issues.team-mediaportal.com/browse/MP1-4357

    Steps to install and test
    Installation
    Download the -->> installer <<-- and execute it.



    Testing
    Upgrade your current 1.6.0 Final installation

    Please do not forget to give some feedback (also if there is no bug). Thank you!

    Tested on another system. Also working perfectly.

    Since this is a simple issue, I think we merge to master and move on...

    There is a problem when Titan Extended is unchecked during an upgrade of MediaPortal

    First of all, the skinsettings.xml containing the users customizations is overwritten.

    Then settings_GUI_Skin.xml from MediaPortal will overwrite Titan Extended's which means that the More button is missing in MediaPortal - Settings - GUI - Skin so it is impossible for the user to manually reset the settings that was removed by the installer :oops:

    Yeah, i noticed the same.
    The Skinsettings.xml is always overwritten, and we've had discussions about it in the past.
    But the fact that Titan Extended needs to be re-installed to make the 'More Settings' button visible again after an upgrade, that is something that shouldn't happen.

    These settings apply to MovingPictures & TV Series plugins, so the button should only show up when Titan Extended is installed. But if the default files doesn't contain this button, i think the XML file should be saved in the appropriate Extended One or Two folder?

    @ncoH can you comment on this please?

    @joostzilla may be able to comment. Nico hasn't been around for a while.

    Fundamentally, we should try to avoid having different versions of the same file in Titan and in TitanExtended.
