I have attempted to install MP on a computer with Windows 8.1. The install freezes with no message. I have to end the process using task manager. I've searched your forum and can't find anyone who has had my issue. Can you give me a checklist for the install? Thank you.

    Sorry to hear you're having trouble Judith.

    Which version of MediaPortal are you trying to install?

    I tried 2 first then 1. Neither finished the install. And neither gave me any error messages. I had to end task for both. I'm going to attempt to upload the log from MP2 last install attempt.

    On previous install attempts (I did 3) it stopped working on MS Visual C++. I reran the install to get screen shots and I noticed that nothing is installing. I did 2 screen shots so that you can see the entire list. Your media tool sounds like a good alternative to Windows Media Center, so I would like a chance to try it out. Thanks.

    Forgot to say that I did run the install as administrator.

    From the screenshots it looks like you simply haven't clicked the "install" button in the bottom right corner of the dialog...

    I wish it was that simple...the install hangs up. Pressing the install button does not proceed with the installation.

    Okay.

    From my perspective this is a really unusual situation, and I have to admit that I'm struggling to visualise what's happening. Nevertheless, if the installation is hanging on the VC++ redist step, you can (and I recommend you do) try to install that package manually. You can download it from Microsoft here:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784

    You need the "vcredist_x86.exe" version.

    Thanks for your help. That worked. I have MP install and am now working on the configuration so that I get my TV stations and the guide. I'll check out other topics for that.
