Re: Reinstall Won't Recognize Skins

1) Lowlander: How do I reinstall skins I modified? 2) Peke: No, I do not see any skins at all in Tools>Extensions UPDATE: I guess what I'm asking is if I had a skin installed, and then modified it for my purposes with Themeeditor7, how do I reinstall it without an *.MMIP? I have an intact subfolder ...

Re: Reinstall Won't Recognize Skins

I did not: both checkboxes on the Skins page of the Options dialog were/are unchecked. Still showing just Metro M, Pulse, and Vitreous

Reinstall Won't Recognize Skins

My employer upgraded. I had to reinstall MediaMonkey 4.1.23.181 from some 4.x. I reinstalled to the same folder. My old skins are still there and visible. But the new version won't recognize anything but the default ones. Suggestions? Also, I don't just want to reinstall the skins; I had modified a ...

Re: Figuring Out a Corrupted DB

I am looking at the PlaylistName field of the Playlists table in an MM.DB file If I sort that table by the PlaylistName field, it starts with some default playlists (Favorites, Last 50 Played, etc.) and it ends with the L's. It looks truncated. Which is a weird thing ... but, whatever, it's what I h...

Re: Figuring Out a Corrupted DB

I'm still looking for an answer to one small part of my first question regarding an old DB. To me, it looks like the DB was truncated. When I look at the Playlists table, I can't think of any other way for it to just end at a certain first letter for playlists. So what are the sorting rules for non-...

Re: Recover Playlists from Versions 3 and 2

Will version 4 open an MDB file? (I don't care if it converts it, as long as it opens it).

Reconstruct a Missing Playlist

I have an old DB from which some playlists were lost. I am trying to figure out how I might reconstruct a playlist, if I can just build off a usage pattern. So, I know I can sort the old DB by "last played". That helps. Here's what I wonder. When I am playing songs from some big unsaved playlist, an...

Figuring Out a Corrupted DB

I have recovered an old DB. I had always wondered why some of my stuff did not come through with an upgrade. I see now that the old DB had been corrupted. Here's what I wonder. I was able to open the DB and view it in another program. One of its tables was cutoff, in alphabetical order, according to...

Open 2nd DB Temporarily

I have a current library DB that I am happy with.

I want to open a second DB temporarily without disturbing the current DB.

What is the safest way to do this? Change the default DB location in the *.ini file (and then change it back)?

Re: Recover Playlists from Versions 3 and 2

OK. I found an MM.db that has not been modified since 2008. I also found a smaller one called MM.DB.Pre31. I am assuming this is from some upgrade I made to 3.1 or 3.2. And I'm still looking deeper. My next step is to open one of these. Two questions. 1) Will version 4 of MM open them? 2) How do I e...

Re: Recover Playlists from Versions 3 and 2

Re: Recover Playlists from Versions 3 and 2

MediaMonkey stores Playlists in the database. Did it always? What was the filename? Where should I look for it? Playlists can be exported from MediaMonkey (and then imported), but you can't import directly from another database. Not sure what you mean by "another database". Do you mean I just have ...

Recover Playlists from Versions 3 and 2

My employer manages my hardware upgrades. Each time the contents of my internal hard drive are compressed and saved. I have kept those backups, made about every 3 years for the last 4-5 rounds. My media is kept on an external hard drive whose folder structure has not changed much in 15 years. When m...
