    Have you thought about allowing your installer to download from URL (maybe to a temp directory and then delete after sucessful finish)?

    After all you have a couple of the necessary installer .mpi files on your website.

    EDIT: Are the .mpi files suppose to download as .zip files then we are suppose to rename the .zip to .mpi or is it just my computer?

    I tried to install the austrialian logos. I downloaded that file from your website and then the installer also on the website. I renamed the .zip file to .mpi and then ran the installer. I choose Install Package and selected "Australian_TV_Logos.mpi" and got the following error:
    I choose continue but it didn't appear to perform any action, so I don't know what happened.

    When I looked at the .mpi (actually downloaded as .zip) file I looked at the file list in the installer.xmp file and the first file is:
    HTML:
    <File>
    <FileName>ABC2.png</FileName>
    <Type>Thumbs</Type>
    <SubType>TV\Logos</SubType>
    <Source>F:\xmp\Australian TV Logos\ABC2.png</Source>
    <Id>04010</Id>
    <Option />
    </File>
    Notice the Option doesn't have a closing /Option plus the slash is in there. Is that correct?

    Also where does it state where the files should be installed into? I ask, because I don't have a F: drive mapped on my system.

    EDIT: Could the following be the reason for the Option tag with the slash at the end?

    HTML:
    	<Option>
    		<BuildFileName />
    		<ProiectFileName>F:\xmp\xpi\Australian_TV_Logos.xmp</ProiectFileName>
    		<ProiectName>Australian TV Logos</ProiectName>
    		<Author>...</Author>
    		<UpdateURL />
    		<Version>1.00</Version>
    	</Option>

    The *.xmp file is the original project file use to build the package. The <Source> node don't used in the installation process only th file name.
    The <Option /> tag is correct.

    Usage:

    Download the mpi file(Don't rename).
    Run MPInstaler.exe (Mediaportal directory)
    Select Install package (then the mpi file, Next,Next)
