    Help required for media engine

    Hello friends,

    I am planning to put a screen in my carputer and media engine shall be the front end for this its a great software..

    have a few questions..


    a) When i hit the shutdown button it just restarts the comp.

    b) when ask to play mp3 it says "error cant find winamp press quit"

    c) Need the ability to fast forward / rewind a track when playing mp3 right now it just goes to the next and back. (using touch screen)

    Any help is good help.

    Im using 98SE as well, when I choose shutdown in MediaEngine, it doesnt even shut down, let alone restart - the program hangs showing "Loading" in the center of the screen. I don't bother using this option.

    Could it not be Windows at fault rather than ME ? I have see this on the OS and there is a fix on the MS site.

    Er, no. Windows shuts down fine, just not from within Mediaengine, its definately an issue with the shutdown call used in Mediaengine.

    I also have the shut down problem with Windows Milliennium Edition. Media Engine just hangs, no shutdown at all. Its not the OS its Media Engine.

    I was told to upgrade to 2000 or XP.

    Heh. Well the mediaengine shutdown code is written per microsoft's recommendations... It works fine for me and many others... I think it is a hairy deal... You must understand that mediaengine is meant to run in a car environment on a clean PC... Perhaps..
    Get MediaEngine !!!
    Media Engine Download
