    I downloaded the installer twice and on both occasions I am getting nsis error (see attached screen shot) when I try to install

    I also tried it after manually stopping TV Service and got same error.

    Also manually stopped For The Record Service which I run and still same error.

    Also closed Media Portal before attempting install and still same error.

    Have attached most recent MP log.



    Hope all this helps.

    :D

    Check the filesize of the downloaded exe -> 25.738 KB

    You seem to suffer from an either incomplete or corrupted download.
    Empty your Windows Temp folder and your browsers cache. Then re-download the file.

    Yes the file size was only about one third of what you say it's meant to be LOL. I actually ran the CC cleaner program after the first failed download assuming it might clean caches etc. Have now emptied them manually and am attempting to download again. :D

    Hello Req,

    Could you please edit/update your post in this topic stating that the download failed to complete or something:

    [News] 1.2.0 rc released! - MediaPortal Forum


    this thread is linked from the released topic on the main website.. and might give new users the wrong impression that there is a bug right away, and no one that worked hard on this release deserves that first impression it gives on the new very well tested release... :D

    You can also try and download the setup file from an other sourceforge mirror. Maybe SF is not finishing mirroring yet.

    After manually clearing my browser cache and windows temp folder my third download from the same link succeeded in getting me the correct sized file and it upgraded my 1.2beta to 1.2RC seamlessly. :D
