    Here's the patch applied to MP 1.3a. It's now TvLibrary.Utils.dll that needs to be replaced.

    Please remember that Windows 8 isn't supported yet so don't forget mentioning that you're using this patch should you seek support for any part of MediaPortal not working.

    How did you guys install Mediaportal under Windows 8? I'm running Windows 8 Release Preview and when trying to install it says "sorry, your os is currently not supported by Mediaportal"

    once you install it replace the files with the ones in this post tv lib and it will work

    This fix no longer works. I tried it on both 1.2.3 and 1.3.0 alpha.

    I really don't understand this whole "check" thing and why the MediaPortal developers are so crazy about breaking these simple fixes. There's nothing mysterious or otherworldly about Windows 8. Anything that will work on 7 will work on 8, unless of course the developer does a "check" and breaks it for fun. I'm giving up on MediaPortal for the third time now (the other two time were because it was so slow I literally could not use it...and this on my dual core computer that runs WMC just fine). Luckily my version of 8 came with a free Media Center pack.

    I'm currently using MediaPortal 1.3.0 Alpha in Windows 8. The Team is working on a solution for a painless MediaPortal installation in Windows 8 but in the mean time you can select the Windows 7 compatibility mode that's suggested by Windows 8 during installation.

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.
