Whenever i try to start a plugin (it's almost any plugin, but in this example i'll use Advanced Launcher and the Amazon Video plugins), i get a popup that says "loading directory", but the plugin will never load. I can cancel out of the load, and get back to the menus and play videos/tvshows/movies/music normally, but any video or program plugin refuses to load. Even weirder is that one in ten times or so rebooting the machine, it works fine. Here's a post of the complete xbmc.log (all i did in this particular log was load xbmc, try to load advanced launcher, it doesn't so i cancel, then repeat the process with amazon):
It looks like the relevant line(s) are:
18:54:45 T:2696 ERROR: XFILE::CDirectory::GetDirectory - Error getting plugin://plugin.program.advanced.launcher
18:54:45 T:2696 ERROR: CGUIMediaWindow::GetDirectory(plugin://plugin.program.advanced.launcher) failed
HTPC A - Win7, 8 gigs RAM, core i5 2500k, Frodo Alpha 3, Aeon Nox 3.5
HTPC B - Win7, 4 gigs RAM, Centrino Duo, Frodo Alpha 2, ReFocus BIG
Note that i originally thought it could be a skin problem, but it seems to happen with Confluence as well. I also tried rolling back the plugins through several previous versions, and even reinstalling XBMC - no dice.
