    I have a problem that happend before but now it's getting wird.
    I did a fresh vista install and installed mp 1.0.0.0. I also installed the Black & White 1080 skin (also 1.0.0.0).
    When I start MP I get a message that the skin is outdated:confused: This happens with b3w and black & white.
    Because after a couple of startups you get an option to set a checkbox disabeling the message I tried this, but it has no effect. Also not if I run mp as administrator!

    What can I do about this? Is there a registry setting that I can set in stead of the checkbox?

    btw I also checked the vista virtual store but this is empty. As expected with the clean install.



    I think this is a bug because I installed everything from scratch...

    Take a look at the reference.xml in your skin folder if the version is matching your MP version.

    You are probably running vista, and have run into the virtual store cache problem. Basically on Vista onwards, applications are prevented to writing to the program files folder. So to compensate this, Vista redirects any writes to C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Team Media Portal\MediaPortal. This then ends up caching images from previous versions, like the splash screen.

    If you delete the above folder the problem should go away.

    This is a MediaPortal problem, all application file writing should be done to the users application data folders, and not to the program file folders.

    If you haven't had MediaPortal on there before, then sorry I cannot help

    As I wrote in my first post. This is a clean install. So there was no previous version of MP on this install. The Virtual Store is obviously empty at that point (checked it to be sure).

    Mee too. Nothing in Virtual Store. Running 1.0.0.0 of MP and 1.0.0.0 of StreamedMP skin.

    Worth noting is that the MediaPortal.log file shows, on the 2nd line:

    Main: MediaPortal v1.0.0.21149 is starting up on windows

    Then a few more lines down:

    [Splashscreen]: version: Application 1.0.0.0

    I tried updating reference.xml to be this same value but it didn't make any difference.

    Have you installed a svn release ater 1.0.0.0? Can you verify if you use the same value as in references.xml from the Blue3 folder.
