Hi, all

I tried installing the TV4Home Core Services (for the purpose of using them with aMPdroid) and noticed that the MSI installation kept failing. The event log showed error 1603 (which is quite generic).

After running the installer with extended logging (/l*) it turned out the installation failed because TV4Home was trying to create a firewall exception...

However... my Firewall is disabled... so I enabled it... and now intallation succeeded.

So, in case you're having installation problems and you have Windows Firewall disabled: This is the solutions.

Best regards
