    No me - and I've not been playing, but the MPEI has lost the list of installed extensions.
    This has happened to me before and I installed all the plugins again, but it's a right royal PITA.

    Is there a way to regenerate the list?

    MPE stored it's list of installed extensions in this file:
    c:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Installer\V2\InstalledExtensions.xml
    So at the moment when your list was empty it would be good to know what that file looked like - it might have been in some way corrupted :( or overwritten by some exception or ...
    I haven't had this happen to me yet, so no idea how to reproduce or even fix it.
    The list cannot be generated without that file.

    This has just happened again - the 'Installed Extensions' tab is blank
    Luckily I copied the old 'InstalledExtensions.xml' file and copying that version over the existing one works.
    Here's the offending XMLs for your perusal... (These were RAR'd before overwriting with the working version)

    #Edit#
    Thought I'd better upload the working version too...

    #Edit2#
    If you look around line 1623 it looks like the tags are not closed properly for the <MaxVersion> section - would this break the XML and stop it from working??
    From that point on things just go a little weird and do not match the working version at all...
    (File compare utils are sooooo useful!)

    Looks like the closing tag for <MaxVersion> is never written because the <Revision> is not written. This surely is the reason why it won't load correctly. I'll try to find out how this invalid xml could be written. Good work we're getting closer now!

    Not sure if it's a bug or by design, but the size of the cache is quite big.
    It was originally @ >450Mb, I deleted all the folders only and did an update, now it's in at 29Mb - that's quite a saving...
    Is this as expected or does the installer clean itself up from time to time?
