    When installing MP some directory paths are not set. When you start My Pictures this results in a complete crash of MP.
    I've seen this when testing on my system, and a user reported this on the forum.

    Sollution would be to poppulate the paths when running the configuration ap the first time. e.g. let all the paths wich haven't got a path point to my documents. The user can then chage this afterwards.

    This is the forum thread:
