MediaMonkey 3.0.3.1183 hangs on loading

Post by clips12 »

On loading MediaMonkey_3.0.3.1183, the application immediately hangs on the splash screen. What could be the reason?

Has MediaMonkey 3 worked before on your machine? What version of Windows do you use? What error message is shown if any? Do you use any scripts?

Have you tried deleting the MediaMonkey database (see this FAQ for it's location)? You probably should rename the MM.DB to something else so you can still return to it if you need your old data.

I had this happen twice yesterday.
Ctrl+Alt+Del killed MM and restarted MM and it worked fine

1 of them I managaed to get off a not responding debug report email to MM support hopefully it will help as dbgview shows nothing once it stops responding.

It has been quite a few of these "just hang on the splash screen" reports lately. I hope the devs have notified it and are onto the problem.

In the meanwhile keep sending the debug logs for those who have this issue so the developers can get more inside to the cause of this issue.

I found that if I leave it hang long enough it crashes and I get to send the debug email.

i dont know if this h as to do with monitor , but in my case monitoring a directory made MM hang while rescaning, and i was not able to terminate te process , even tho MM kept running fine, the process was there stuck at almost 3/4 (had to exit with via task manager)

i just renamed the directory where the problem was, and BINGO! it is not stucking/hanging there any more

previous directory name:

c:\Music\Kany Garcia-{Cualquier dia}-CD 2007\ 11 - todo basta.mp3 (here it was stuck in the 11th file, maybe the first alphabetically)

renamed DIRECTORY to
c:\Music\Kany Garcia\ 11 - todo basta.mp3 and now it monitors just fine
so i guess the monitor library code in charge of scanning dirs has a bug somewhere regarding dashes or braces { } (curly brackets) or some RegExp has gone wild

followup EDIT:
I replaced my {} vbraces with () parenthesis and everything is fine.

Same here. It's been happening quite frequently lately. What's more, the debug version will actually generate many report windows as if there are multiple reasons for the freeze. I generally only send in the last one, clear the others, and then MM will load up fine but it's still disconcerting. I hope the devs are working on the issue.

I too have the same problem media monkey locks at the start screen. Running windows xp and have k Lite codec pack 4.0 installed just like supremeeox. I had k lite installed long back and I just dowloaded mm3 and installed it and doesn't seem to work from the start.
Tried many times and couldn't get it to work.
Any help would be appreciated.

Try this:

At C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Plugins, rename d_iphone.dll to off.d_iphone.dll, then start MM.
