1. Downloaded the latest SVN source.
2. Copied everything from my fresh RC3+Latest SVN installation to xbmc/bin/release (so i can run the application from here.)
3. Opened the solution, and compiled (release mode). It was vanilla new, haven't touched anything, just compiled.
4. Closed VS2005, went to the release folder and started mediaportal.
5. went to MyDVD, MyVideo - a place where I have a previously played file, so the YesNo dialog should come up with asking if you wanna continue or start from the beginning.
6. Played the file.
7. Mediaportal tried to play, then dropped the file without error message in the UI.
8. In DVD mode I'll have the same issue, except MP stays in fullscreen video mode with black screen (have to press escape to go back).

The same error occurs, if I copy Core.dll, Mediaportal.exe, Dialogs.dll, WindowsPlugins.dll and DirectshowLib.dll over the files of a fresh RC3+Latest SVN Snapshot install, and start Mediaportal there.

I attached the logs, but also copy the error part here because it is partially hungarian ;) So I translate it for you here:

(I'll try to debug the problem myself, I just don't have time right now, sorry.)

Ok, I found out the problem: I had another copy of Dialogs.dll in the root folder (/bin/release). I must have carelessly copied a copy there... It didn't matter that it was same binary as was in /plugins/windows because it just can't be this dll there. I suppose Mediaportal.exe (or else) and windowpluins.dll loads different copy of the dll.

Anyway, problem solved, it was my mistake. Sorry. I shouldn't work so late... :oops:
