I just installed this add on, but can't get to work. I'm sure that I'm missing something obvious.

I'm running Windows 7 Professional.

When I try to run it, I get
Error #-2147024894 - File: "C:\Users\username]\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\freedbSubmitter\freedbSubmitter.vbs", Line: 7, Column: 1

I deliberately left my user name off of the above, but it is correct in the message.

I was getting the same error on Windows 10, then updated Freedb Submitter to the latest version (2.1 at the moment) and the error changed to line 10, column: 1 with a second error message saying "Error happened during script execution: The system cannot find the file specified"

I've checked and freedbsubmitter.hta exists and seems to be in the right place. I've uninstalled and reinstalled both ways and still get the error.

Thanks for any help :)

Thanks for reporting your issue, and sorry you encountered a problem.

Just to clarify, when you say you reinstalled both ways, did you mean the second way was a manual install and it also did not work?

If that's the case, I'm once again mystified and would like to get some additional information if I may.

If you feel comfortable digging into the code a bit, I'd like to suggest the following:
  • First launch MediaMonkey
  • Open the freedbSubmitter folder in File Explorer
  • RIGHT click freedbSubmitter.vbs (not freedbSubmitter.hta) and click Edit
  • In Notepad, add a new line after line 9
  • In the new line, add this code: msgbox SDB.ScriptsPath & htaPath
  • Save the .vbs file in Notepad (you can leave Notepad open)
  • In File Explorer, double click freedbSubmitter.vbs to launch it
  • A message box will pop up indicating where the addon expects to find the .hta file
  • Press Control-C to copy the message
  • Send me the result (after redacting your username)
Hopefully, this will give me some clue as to what's going.

And if you don't feel comfortable monkeying with code :-), I totally understand. I'll keep thinking about other angles to investigate.

Fun fact: In File Explorer, and with MM still open, double click freedbSubmitter.hta (not .vbs). The addon should open and run normally. If it doesn't, then I've really messed something up.

Let me know how it goes.
