    Will the double licence agreement issue be fixed at some point?

    If I follow the instruction in the linked post above, the window looks like

    So not sure how a good graphic for the dialog should look like? Should it cover the full size? But in this case we would need a center area with good contrast to progress dialog and messages.

    Oh, while you guys are at it - could someone please post a full set of screenshots from a standard SingleSeat installation with the current installer?
    I could need that for the Quick-Start guide I'm currently planning for our wiki :) Thanks!

    Here you go...
    I did not see any difference when choosing Server and Client vers Server only vers Client only.

    Added Custom install
    Available from Install_04 screen

    We still need the Uninstaller to properly:
    Stop and remove all running processes
    An option for a Total Clean uninstall there-by removing All Folders associated to MP2 (client or server)

    @ge2301 or @wizard123 could someone of you provide a custom MP2 graphics for the initial dialog?
    Here a quick mockup that fits well for a Setup from my point of view.
    The important areas with text and other information can remain white. I recommend not to fill up all background, that won't look good I think.

    I prefer variant 3, because the total gradient including the logo goes from right to left

    I made some test with the above image:
    upload_2015-11-21_12-3-17.png


    But I stumbled upon different bugs regarding to layout and overlapping of controls.

    1) Text "MediaPortal 2" above disappears if you hit the "alt" key (I tried to take a window snapshot): http://windows-installer-xml-wix-to...Install-page-disables-hot-keys-td7582132.html

    2) Moving labels above image seems to cause other display issues as well. If you remove background color from labels, you will see the different labeles of all screens overlapped. So background color is used to "hide" other content :confused:
