    Hello all,

    I have Windows XP SP3. I've upgraded 1.2.0 to 1.6.0. During installation I was required to install .Net 4.0.

    Then in a grid I saw messages on unsupported OS and continuing installation - while https://www.team-mediaportal.com/mediaportal/requirements says "MP will issue a warning, but will install on: Windows XP 32-bit Edition with at least service pack 3"



    When running MediaPortal Configuration and TV-Server Configuration I see popup

    Windows XP (Service Pack 3) [5.1.2600.196608]
    Your platform is not supported by MediaPortal.
    Please check our Wiki's requirements page.

    and fulfillment continues.



    MediaPortal seems to be working (though TV Server configuration gives "Microsoft SI/PSI parser outdated! Your version 6.5.2600.5512 of Psisdecc.dll has too many bugs! Please check our Wiki's requirements page.")


    Please inform me whether everything works as it should.

    Thank you.

    Basically what it says: MP is not supported on XP anymore. I think the last XP supported version was 1.3 or 1.4, so the team does not check, if the new releases do work on XP or not.

    Thanks for reply.

    I see, but I wrote what I've read in wiki where popup sends me.

    And - where I can read how then I can rollback from 1.6.0 to 1.2.0 in order to install last XP supported version?

    Thank you.

    Hello Jack163

    There is no need to roll back. MP 1.6 works fine on XP. The message means that if you ask for help with a problem, we don't guarantee to provide support. We also don't provide support for old versions of MP... so there is actually no benefit to rolling back.

    This is normal. It is okay. MP and TV Server are still working fine.

    This is not normal.
    Look at the "required updates" section:
    https://www.team-mediaportal.com/mediaportal/requirements
    So, please download and install that patch and the message will go away. :)
