    Then it might be recommended that users Uninstall from the Programs and Features Control Panel in the Release notes.
    I just changed the release notes exactly in this way.

    Uninstalling from the control panel leaves the Client Launcher and the Server Monitor running....
    So users would need to also stop Launcher and Server Monitor before uninstalling Spring 16?

    Are we still sure that my small hack is not easier to implement? ;)

    I will test it if you can make it work...

    Could also be possible to add it to the included BAT file with the setup.exe
    Just a thought...

    From my experience with five MP2.1 installation tasks: if you use the 'Mediaportal 2 Uninstall' entry from the Windows program menu there is still an entry in the 'Programs and Features' in system control panel. You need additionally to uninstall 'the rest' from there. But settings and data still stay on the system which is very comfortable in case of the TV server database. After MP 2.1 installation the TV server can run instantly without new and time-consuming setup.

    What I found was the 'server connection thingy' in the taskbar stayed always red even when the server was connected. It behaved correctly once the folder with its config and log files the 'ProgramData' folder was deleted manually prior to a new installation. After that it changed its status to green as soon as the server was connected.

    As I had run the 29-08-2016 weekly I knew I needed to uninstall manually. So I closed the MP2 client launcher and the server monitor as well as the MP2TVServer service manually, made both uninstallations - from 'Program Menu' and from 'Programs and Features', deleted all MP2-... folders in 'ProgramData' (except I kept the TV server database on the media server') and then rebooted for a fresh install. I think this is the right way to get read of all unwanted legacy 2.0 stuff. O.k. I used the weekly but may be the regular Spring 16 release needs a similar treatment. The MP 2.1 is not just a .1 added to 2.0 but a major step with a lot of improvements.


    Cheers

    Indeed. My concern was that neither 2.1.3 Pre-Release, nor 2.2 development currently result in a successful installation in this situation, and that people may preferentially view 2.1.3 as the current stable.

    Yes, but it is not found: Manual installation should solve it directly. I'm not sure, if 4.7.1 will work. MP2 expects 4.7. I checked and we have not updated yet.
