1. Process

Attempting to directly upgrade a Spring '16 setup using any MediaPortal installer of version 2.1 and higher will fail. A versioning issue in Spring '16 causes the installer to believe that Spring '16 has a higher version number and causes the installer to quit.

Please follow the following simple steps to install MediaPortal 2:

  • Uninstall the existing Spring '16 setup from the Windows Control panel
    Your data are safe. TV database and user settings, as well as media information database are preserved
  • On the client
    • Terminate the MP2 Launcher: right-click on the small orange MP2 icon in the taskbar and select Close
    • Terminate the ServerMonitor:  right click on the small light-green MP2 icon in the taskbar and select Close

  • Now run the installer of the new MediaPortal version
    The installer will recognize the Spring '16 information and migrate user settings as well as the existing TV database.
    The media information database of Spring '16 has an old data format that can not be used anymore.


Since the media source path information is stored in the media database you need to redefine your media sources after the installation of MediaPortal 2.1 and higher.
