|0016670||MediaMonkey 5||Extensions framework||public||2020-05-28 14:28||2021-11-08 15:41|
|Target Version||5.0||Fixed in Version||5.0|
|Summary||0016670: Extension updates may result in settings loss / multiple MM windows|
|Description||In the course of testing codec pack updates, I found that although extension updates generally work well, there are a couple of issues related to the update process:|
1) Restart of MediaMonkey causes Window settings to be lost. This isn't a major issue, unless it can also cause other settings to be lost.
2) Restart of MediaMonkey can cause multiple MM5 windows to run, generating errors
I suspect that both of these are related to incorrect termination/restart of MM.
See (with process explorer showing running/closed MM instances):
|Steps To Reproduce||To replicate:|
1 Make sure no codec pack is installed, and restart MM
2 Change the window size
3 Install codec pack 3.0.2
--> MM restarts but new window size isn't the last saved size!
4 Go to extensions and 'Find Updates'
5 Initiate the update to codec pack 3.0.3 trial
--> MM tries to restart, but fails to do so successfully!
--> error results due to multiple instances of MM running!

This seems a recent regression in app.restart(); introduced by Petr while fixing 0016396
i.e. MM5 is not properly closed, but is killed by the restart.bat instead
||Verified 2254. Closing.|
