Hi all - just a quick note to say that I have just tried the Win32 version - after just ordering my new HDTV.. and wondering what it looked like vs. Mediaportal...
Considering it came with big warnings that it wasnt complete and only an environment for skinners & Python guys - i am really really impressed. Like I wasnt enough already !.. if only video worked i'd be over the moon
I am really looking forward to the linux port, and even the note above about the win32 compile. It'll be cool to have a common media center across the PC and XBOX... and even though it isnt a prority.. finding out a little more about the Win32 environment developing !!

Yay for the new win32 SDL build. Works like a charm.
Didnt expect it to be so quick in such an early stage. Keep up the good work. (Realy more intressted in the linux and xbox version but i had to try it)
[help request]: Problem to run the XBMC Win32 - Xanboroon - 2007-08-10 13:38
I've tried to install the XBMC win32 to debug my python scripts but when I launch it it seems to be frozen after the start.
Looking into the Task manager, the XBMC_PC.exe process is taking no CPU, but the application is not responding...
Here is a copy of the xbmc.log:

So it seems to have issues trying to launch an Emergency console
Dell Optiplex 745 + windows XP SP2, Directx 9.c
XBMC version: XBMC-SVN_2007-08-05_rev9834-T3CH.rar
Help will be very welcome, thanks in advance...

read instructions -> oh rite, i have to run the batch file that subst the drives.
atleast thats my guess based on that non-debug log

Thx for the reply. I have read and followed the instructions. My previous mail was may be not complete enough.
Here are the detailled description of the steps I have followed:
First I have tried the way it's explained in the readme of the XBMC_PC_rev7133 with the XBMC-SVN_2007-08-05_rev9834-T3CH build and I get the result explained previously.
Then I have seen in the release note of this XBMC build of T3CH that it already contained all what is needed and that XBMC_PC_rev7133 should not be needed anymore, so I have started back from scratch:
1. unrar of "XBMC-SVN_2007-08-05_rev9834-T3CH.rar"
2. Copy of the win32\XBMC_PC.exe and win32\run_me_first.bat in the XBMC directory
3. delete of default.exe
4. launch of run_me_first.bat (everything went well, drives correctly mapped)
5. launch of XBMC_PC.exe
--> same result: application start, but freeze on a black frame...
What did I do wrong?
I have tried on my laptop too (same SW config: XP SP2 + DirectX9.c), with the same result...
Thanks in advance for your help...

The xbmc_pc will not start if you don't run the .bat file so thats not it.
Maybe try a different version of xbmc with xbmc_pc.exe ? Apart from that it could be something running in background on your PC?
