For MM2 it's MediaMonkey.mdb and for MM3 it's MM.DB.

Only way I know of to open the DB in MM2 was to use MS access... MS access can also open .DB files.

But only if the .DB file is a Paradox database. The MM.DB file from MediaMonkey 3 is not a paradox database. It's SQLITE.

Ah, didn't know that. Maybe Openoffice?

Yes, it's done exactly as in MM2.
Advanced Duplicate Find & Fix Find More From Same - Custom Search. | Transfer PlayStat & Copy-Paste Tags/AlbumArt between any tracks.
Tagging Inconsistencies Do you think you have your tags in order? Think again...
Play History & Stats Node Like having your Last-FM account stored locally, but more advanced.
Case & Leading Zero Fixer Works on filenames too!

I think it is better to use Windows shortcuts where possible, as you can use those shortcuts everywhere in Windows, be it the file explorer or the command line or a file dialogue. In this case, a typical MM installation stores its database as:
%APPDATA%\Mediamonkey\MM.db

A portable installation stores the DB inside the installation directory, \Portable\MM.db .
