Guys,

Would it be possible to release a non MSI version. I am a keen tester, but want to maintain my existing working 1.3 version. A non-MSI 2.0RC1 release would be great for testing.

    Since I also have this setup (one stable install, one test build) I basically made a backup of my good setup. Unistalled MP and then reinstalled the new test build in a new directory. Move the original install you backed up to the original directory. MP will then function normally on both installs.

I am very impressed by both the forum and the quality of the Mediaportal2 package. Keep up the good work and thank you to all that...
