Can a MM developer help us out here please? We're going in circles!

At first 'My Music\MediaMonkey' folder is checked, then 'Program Files\MediaMonkey' is used.

Then this will be the new code:

Code: Select all

' Returns the path to MediaMonkey's configuration (ini) file or "" if it doesn't exist
Function GetINIPath()

  GetINIPath = ""
  Dim INIPath_MyMusic, INIPath_Program, FSO

  INIPath_MyMusic = SDB.MyMusicPath & "MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey.ini"
  INIPath_Program = SDB.ApplicationPath & "MediaMonkey.ini"
  Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 

  If FSO.FileExists(INIPath_MyMusic) Then
    GetINIPath = INIPath_MyMusic
    If FSO.FileExists(INIPath_Program) Then
       GetINIPath = INIPath_Program
    End If
  End If
End Function
Extensions: ExternalTools, ExtractFields, SongPreviewer, LinkedTracks, CleanImport, and some other scripts (Need Help with Addons > List of All Scripts).

I guess this is something that only one of the developers can answer. I also think that selecting ini based on the file size it is too risky. Perhaps it has something to do with the stored info inside. I have also checked the registry to see if i can come up with something but no luck. So, it must be the system section.

As for your idea Steegy i couldnt agree more with you, i strogly believe that using common vbs as "libraries" will help us all.

Personally, I'm one of those (maybe?) :-) I've always liked the way Apple OS works...just drag and drop ONE file and there you go: program installed, so maybe this is something like that!.

This might be the most stupid thing in scripting terms youve hear but, seeing all you guys can do from a script, would it be hard if you:

1. Write a script assuming there are such libraries (as proposed in this forum)
2. Run a script (possible? no idea here) that just starts the script and then copies the function needed from the library in the right place
3. Post the new script...that's self contained!!

maybe is really hard to do, dont't know...but that would make it easy on you writing the script and wouldn't hurt usability nor ease of use (same thing?) for the common people like me?

if this is not possible to do (the script that copies functions), or is not what youre asking or makes things more complicated, then just ignore this!!!

i cannot get this script to install. you should do a step but step installation how to.
I think this script should be stock with MM.
how often do you end up with a compilation split up by artist instead of album.

EDIT: nevermind I went back and payed closer attention. thanks great script
