Embedded MiniLyrics Issue

Post by zephism » Sun Jul 22, 2012 9:53 pm

Hi all,

Just a small issue, but a rather annoying one.

Installed the latest MM (4.0.6.1501) and MiniLyrics (7.4.12), and used the Embedded MiniLyrics installer to get the MiniLyrics panel in MM.

It works and looks great - exactly how I want it. The only issue is, every time I start MM I get that pesky "MiniLyrics couldn't be embedded. Possibly its window, or the embedder window, isn't visible." error - even though MiniLyrics is embedded just fine, working just fine, not transparent etc... anyone know how I can disable this error or at least fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Bump. This is really quite an irritating issue and I'm sure I'm not the first person that would have encountered it.

I think it has something to do with the plugin being in the MM program folder, because I never get that error if I run MM as admin.

Running as admin makes no difference on my end.

This is on a fresh windows install with everything installed as the latest version (MM, ML etc.)

Had the same issue, portable install (full rights).

I simply commented out the check in Sub EmbedTmr_OnTimer(EmbedTmr), seems to work now flawlessly:

Code: Select all

'    EmbedTriesCount = EmbedTriesCount + 1
'    If Not Embedder.EmbedWindow Then
'        If EmbedTriesCount >= EmbedTriesMax Then
'            Script.UnRegisterEvents EmbedTmr
'            Set EmbedTmr = Nothing
'            SDB.MessageBox "MiniLyrics couldn't be embedded. Possibly its window, or the embedder window, isn't visible.", mtError, Array(mbOK)
'        End If
'        Exit Sub
'    End If

I can confirm Jesterofthesky post: On Windows 7 64bit, when installing both Media Monkey (latest version 4) and MiniLyrics in "C:\Program Files" instead of in the default folder "C:\Program Files (x86)" then the MiniLyrics embeder will work fine :D
