    Had a shot at upgrading to Windows 8.1 again and MediaPortal still refused to work. However I managed to fix it by extracting the 1.5.0 Pre Release installer (this was already installed on Windows 8). And then running the two separate installers again from the deploy folder. Everything is now working as previously.

    Upgraded to 8.1 and mediaportal 1.5.0 final (october release) worked fine for weeks. Then all of a sudden after some windows update i didn't start. Tried to reinstall without success. Any way to downgrade windows to 8.0 ?

    since the windows update my 1.5.0 launches okay, and I can reinstall with no problem. But the external player has stopped launching.

    Have you done ALL the updates through windows update? I'm reinstalling 8.0 now to do a clean mediaportal 1.5.0 final installation on that...

    To the best of my knowledge yes, though I may have some components that I didn't load in to windows 8.1. I only loaded the minimum it would let me load at install of 8.1 and have installed no extra features in to 8.1. AKA tried to keep it as unbloated as possible.
