  • If you are prompted to reboot your PC during the installation, please choose to restart later and then restart your PC after MPE+ has run for the first time.
  • Please pay attention to warnings and popups and make sure to allow any and all drivers to install.
  • Some driver prompts may be covered by the MPE+ splash screen or window, so you should pay attention for installers showing up in the Task Bar.
  • If you choose to reboot your PC or disallow any drivers to be installed, you may need to manually restart/resume the installation process.
