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?
Yes in next release.

    BTW - When I downloaded the .mpi file it was copied to my harddisk with the .zip extension!

    That didn't help - I have that .dll and the .mpi file and the .exe for the installer on my desktop. Details of error:
    The .dll and the .exe file must be in mediaportal(where the mediaportal.exe located) folder.

    That made all the difference in the world! Maybe the installer needs an installer!!

    I think the program should tell the user where the install will be taking place. You have default destinations for plugins and skins - but the logos were not skins! So a normal user wouldn't know where the files are being placed.

    Also when installing over the top of a previous install - shouldn't the user be notified that the program will be overwriting existing files and be given a choice?
