    Main Screen crashes to Desktop after updating...

    I just installed Media Engine 2. Build 2.0.20 in my carputer. I am using Windows Media 9.0, with Win XP Corporate version. The cpu is an AMD 2200+ in a ShuttleX. As soon as I answered the questions about the directories and it went to the main screen it started cycling between the main screen and the loading screen. About 1.5 seconds each showing. I can shut down Media Engine by double clicking on the red button when it shows but am not able to get into the setup area. I have cycled the puter off and back on but when I restart Media Engine it does the same. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling 3 times but it still has the same problem going on.
    Any suggestions?
    I put it on a back up system in the house and it installed with no problems. Same software as above but only a 1200 Athlon cpu.
    Thanks,
    Gary

    update your mediaengine.exe. I think the latest version is .27 now. I understand there has been a few issues about the screen looping which have been fixed.

    I went to: http://www.mediaengine.org/index.php?downloads
    and the download shows as version 2.0.20. I assume that this is the latest version. Is there another place to download from? Do I have the newest version? I still have the same problem.
    Thank you,

    Thank you much. I just couldn't find it before. As it states, it should fix the problem.
    Thanks again,

    Unhappy Main Screen now crashes to Desktop...

    argh! I installed the update so I have 2.0.27. Now it turns on the main screen and then approx 2-3 secounds later ME disappears and is closed. I can't get to any other window as it starts to go to wherever I click on and then closes. It is not min, it is closed.
    Any suggestions?
    Looking forward to having it work.
    Thanks,
    Gary

    The only solution anyone has provided was to try Mediacar. Nothing I have done has been able to make ME work. It just crashes back to the desktop. In games, that is usually means a video conflict. ???

    ME is better for me cause it offers a full screen .. and mediacar only run on 800x600 or 840x640 or something like that... my screen is a 13.3.. so not luck for me with media car...
