Product install error is all I get with MM3 Alpha 4 when I try to install it.

Hi. Alpha 5 is out on the steps and have fixed some placing issues in player-skins. Also, it has enabled trailing in SeekBar. I will therefore update this skin to Alpha 5. Stay tuned, I will try to make it finished for Alpha 5 asap.
Best regards,
Morten

Sorry. I don't think there'll be a release for Alpha 5, Alpha 6 is more likely. This is because there are some errors which needs to be sorted out, and they aren't only mine. However, look forward to trailing-bars in both Volume and Seekbar and some more changes which will make this even more similar to WMP11.
Best regards,
Morten

I suppose one of these 'not yours' problems is the 'misplaced status bar' bug. Do you know if it is going to be sorted out?

Well, WMP11 has been downloaded over 1500 times since the first release. That's pretty good. I'm now releasing a newer and better version of this skin which updates this skin to be Alpha 5 compatible. (I didn't mean to actually, but managed to fix most of the problems myself).

New version (Alpha 5 compatible) added into first post. Download here.

What is new?;
- Added Trailing of both SeekBar and VolumeBar.
- Added Sorting Panes in Vista style.
- Fixed some code issues in various ini-files.

Enjoy!
Best regards,
Morten

It should be installed as WMP11. Why is yours just called WMP?

Morten,

-Yes I am using a5 (3001045).

- It is "WMP" I suppose, because that is the name of the folder I created.

You create a folder called 'WMP' or something like that in the directory of MediaMonkey\Skins and thereafter copy the files to that newly made folder.

This is the only reference I could find as to installing and using the skin.
I have no knowledge as to how the "skinning" process/programming works, etc...It might be a good idea if you give clear precise install instructions in the initial post of this thread for those of us that do not know how to manually install a skin...

Thanks for any help with this.

Ahh...

It is now working.

Thanks to rovingcowboy for sending me a PM and pointing out that Mortens current zipped file is some sort of unique self-installing file...that was not clear and not understood here...

It seems to be a great autoinstall mechanism...it installed in multiple copies with no problems...once I understood that I was to "run" the extracted file it was foolproof....

Possibly a readme with instruction along with the zipped file might be in order.

New zip-file with instructions included in this link;
http://www.diskusjon.no/index.php?act=A ... &id=160464

How do I install?
- Open the zip-file and run the file called "WMP11 - Installation.mmip". The product installs automatically if you have MediaMonkey v3.0 installed (and running?).
Best regards,
Morten

I think it opens MM for you if it is closed 'cause it needs MM to be running to install it.
