I'm was earlier trying to install TVE3 on this partition, but faild on the prerequisits. Now those seems to work (magic I guess :confused: ).

Now I've tried to do an absolutely clean install of "MediaPortal_Setup_1.0_RC1_Refesh.exe". But I get a report that an old version of TV-server exists. I've even removed the mediaportal directory completely in the program folder. Is there anywhere else I need to check for setup files?

I might have been to quick in removing all files, but it's done. How can I get around this problem?

Have you tried uninstalling the Mediaportal tvserver/client via control panel -> add/remove programs?
Plus a reboot.

Thanks! I'm up and running now!

Just deleting in the registry did not help. I ran Cleanup last and then it workt! Me and computers! ;-)

Two things does not seem to work in MP1 though. I'll check if it is already reported.

Thanks again!
