Install problem - unrecognized database format

Post by pamelaahelmerr »

I've installed version 1.2. At the end of the install the program tries to run, when it does this an error message comes up. The dialog box header reads "ODBC Microsoft Access 97 driver login failed", the message reads "Unrecognized database format ... SongsDB.mdb".

Any suggestions? I can download the debug version if that will help.

thanks

The current version is MediaMonkey 5. Version 1.2 is really old and no longer supported.

Hi,
To clarify, a "Microsoft ODBC Access 97 driver" is not available for Windows 10 you can try to install x86/32bit version from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=13255 but you still would be at low chance. that DB is at least 15 years old.
