I cannot install or uninstall any extension (Vista) BUG#5072

After I try to remove any extension via Tools | Extensions, I get the message "To install or remove an add-on you must Run MediaMonkey as Administrator", which occurs regardless of whether I have started MM as the administrator or not.

This is on Windows 7 beta, so can someone else confirm or report that this does not occur for them on Vista?

Anyone? This is most certainly related to 5072 which will only affect Vista systems, but of course I had to go get mixed up with Windows 7 so I can't be sure what's causing the problem.

I get the same message on Vista Ultimate. I have UAC turned off and installed MM as an administrator.

I just tried to install an extension and got an exception, which I sent in.

EDIT:

I've reopened 5072

I can install and uninstall extensions again as well now, great.

But now if I start MM without admin privileges and attempt to install a script I get "Product installation error" and not the "You must run MediaMonkey as admin" message.

I have 1213 and have still been unable to install the Last.fm plug-in even when running MM as administrator. Get production error message. Have tried installing it from the desk-top which worked for the Advanced Duplicate script earlier today, but that doesn't work for the Last.fm plugin.
Seems there must be a way to write these things so they will install on Vista machines with no hassle???

Are you running Vista or XP ?

Hi all,

I've noted that on XP, extension installation info is written to
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\MediaMonkey\Extensions.ini
which I suppose does not work unless you're admin on the machine.

Might this is the reason for this problem?

IMHO this extension directory and ini should be in the installation path (MediaMonkey home) or in the User Local Settings where MM stores the user related stuff.

Cheers, tralla
