Hello agian, has anyone had problems installing MP 1.0.1 on a Vista system? I tried the update function and it stopped when downloading the directx august 2008 file. I then did a complete uninstall and tried both the automatic and manual download methods with no success. I got an error message saying that this is not a win32 program. Is MP 1.0.1 even compatible with Vista, or am I doing something wrong??

edited: Sorry to have posted this. I did some searching and it looks like MP 1.0.1 is not compatible with my version of windows. My bad.

I found it in the documentation. It says it's good for vista service pack 1 only I believe.

Anyway, I am not sure I feel up to playing with this right at the moment. I ended up doing another fresh install and now I am having problems getting my program guide data from schedules direct. This is a great program when it works, I just wish it would work more often.

    Ok, didn't check the SP level. I still don't take into acocunt that there are still users that prefer NOT to install latest SP on their machine :p
