Ok thanks for the report...makes sense now. We will investigate a way to run MediaPortal de-elevated from an elevated process.as promised i paid more attention this time! btw, great to have little updates like this on a frequent basis.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.
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.
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.
