    69. The application must also be compiled with debugging
    70. enabled.
    71.  
    72. For example:
    73.

    75.    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
    76. </configuration>
    77.  
    78. When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    79. will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    80. rather than be handled by this dialog box.
    BTW - When I downloaded the .mpi file it was copied to my harddisk with the .zip extension!

    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?
