Yes, thanks jiri. When I was looking at a previous script I noticed that I'd used SDB.MyMusicPath so I'm using that now! :)

Another option is

Code: Select all

Ok, cheers. How do I get to the <userdocuments> though?

MediaMonkey.ini can only be named MediaMonkey.ini, else MM wont work...
The location of the MediaMonkey.ini is standard:
<UserDocuments>\My Music\MediaMonkey

If MM is used in a shared envirronment then the MediaMonky.ini is located under the
<ProgramFiles>\MediaMonkey folder.

There is a MediaMonkey.ini file under that folder all the times but when not used under shared environment it only contains entries for direct sound ([out_ds] section).

Using that info is quite easy to get the location of the ini file. If the ini inside program files is empty (use a stream object to check this) then the ini is located under the first folder...

Hope this helps

It would be really useful if SDBIniFile had a location "Get" property which allowed you to retrieve the filename of the .ini file. What do you think?
