Windows Version: XP Home

This annoying error comes up when media portal starts when the skin is brand new. Is there any way to turn this off or make MP realize that the skin is brand new? It stinks because you cannot select "ignore" with MCE remote...it requires a mouse! thanks!

    in the skin directory for your selected skin, open "references.xml" (from memory) in notepad and look for the version number.
    Open the same file in the blue two folder and make sure the line is the same as that one.

    This is where the version of the skin is stored.

    it might be annoying, but thats not a bug.
    the skin author simply has to update his skin
