Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players

I don't think downgrading KODI on top of v.18 or vice versa is a good idea.  I copy and rename my v.17.6 entire userdata folder from time to time (back up).  Then I installed v.18 from scratch and save and rename it too.  Switching between the two is just a matter of installing v.17.6 or v.18 downloading to the program files folder and applying the corresponding userdata folder and renaming correctly.
Epic failure by DVDFab if that's what they did. No wonder they are giving away free keys. Unless they retract, this will kill the product.

I need to think about my Kodi installation a little. The reality is that the only problem I have with v18 right now is launching DVDFab. I have zero issues with Kodi itself or with launching PDVD. I have exactly 6 4K HDR titles in the hard drive which need this option. Although that number will grow, I'm not sure right now it's worth the aggravation. 

Currently I need to close Kodi, launch DVDFab and 'Open' the media -- which is a horrible HTPC experience. But for 6 or so titles, I think I'll wait a tad. Downgrading to v17 doesn't make sense to me for this. (At the moment). 

Thanks.
