    Ok thanks for the report...makes sense now. We will investigate a way to run MediaPortal de-elevated from an elevated process.

    Could you explain how or why MediaPortal was minimized? Was this done intentionally or is it another bug? When you click accept on the UAC prompt it should of shutdown mediaportal not minimized it. I personally never experienced this with UAC enabled.

    That makes things clearer, hands up here as did not realise there was such an option, we use an internal MP call to exit and with this option enabled this will not do what we want.

    I will look into other options but I suspect if may come to to a kill of the MP process.

    Quick question for you, how do you know that MP is running elevated? It is, we know that as it is started from an elevated process.

    We are look at ways to ensure this does not happen so really just after background information.

    I have sorted the other issue you had with minimise on exit and just have this one left.

    Thanks

    hi,

    thanks for your efforts. i use a keyboard/mouse sharing utility on my laptop/HTPC (synergy), and after MP is restarted i can't get across to my HTPC (from my laptop) like normal. after i physically go over to the HTPC, close MP, and then restart it, come back to my laptop, everything works like normal. i hope that makes sense.

    cheers,

    dh.

    Ok this updating is great. But what plugins are currently being updated (if any) by this skin and how do we request others be added? Personally, I think anything that is listed as a popular plugin should be included in the updating process. Online videos and Media Slayer being included would be AWESOME.

    thanks.

    Updater also working perfectly here.....Very nice feature.

    Is the updating of plugins already implemented?

    I am exhausted with the need of keeping my plugins up-to-date.

    Furthermore, there should be an option to "Silent auto-update"=If update is found->Install next time MP is started. Maybe with a notificcation box first time MP ir run after update.

    Then we would have FULL autoupdate:)

    Glad you like it, the update of plugins included with skin is supported currently.

    I have just had a quick look at what would be involved in a "Silent auto-update", I could easily check during MP start-up if an update is available and the automaticlly run the installer if the option is selected and then restart MP.

    As the next patch is planned for release this w/e it will most likley not make it in but will look to add it for the next patch, they are coming think and fast currently as we work on various plugin skin files so could be active in 2/3 weeks.

    thx
