    Nice feature. But I would like to see an auto update feature for minor updates :)

    The lastest changes that have gone in will allow for an update of plugins, if configured for unattended install will shutdown MP, install any required plugins and restart MP. I only saw this for handling the editor and the config plugin but in theory can be used for all plugins.

    Will need to a few extra checks and a 'ignore patch' feature but is possible.

    Cheers

    also consider the possibility for a roll back / uninstall patch.

    yes, i noticed the icon the other day, and went through the upgrade process (sans screenshots provided in original post, so it's very user friendly).

    just one thing though... and this may be easy to resolve. when MP restarted, it wanted to restart with full permissions... what this means for me is that synergy (keyboard & mouse sharing utility) didn't work anymore from my laptop... i had to go to my PC, close MP, and then restart it again with normal permissions...

    is there any reason why MP switches to needing full permissions?

    cheers,

    dh.

    That should not happen, did the patch request to be run with elevated permissions or just mediaportal? I may have an idea as to what may cause this but cant reproduce on any of my systems, even the ones with UAC enabled.

    Will look into it but as of now I am not sure as to the exact cause.

    thx

    i can't be sure if it was the patch or MP that wanted elevated permissions... MP closed to install the patch, and then i was prompted. i'll pay more attention next time, and i'm happy to provide logs/screenshots if that helps.

    cheers,

    Thanks, the Patch definitely asks for elevation (if UAC is enabled) as it needs to install plugins into the program files directory. But when I tested this was prompted while I was still in the GUI.

    as promised i paid more attention this time! btw, great to have little updates like this on a frequent basis.

    now, i went to settings, skin, skin update, update and install, the patch started downloading, then it asks for elevated permissions, which i allow, i then have to manually close MP (since it was only minimised), and then i receive the prompt restarting MP in 4, 3, 2, 1. when MP has been restarted it is running in the elevated permission set from earlier, so i have to go and close it, and reopen it using the currently logged in user...

    perhaps there's something i can adjust in my system to resolve this? anyway, if you'd like more information (logs or other), please let me know.
