SDBIniFile

Post by trixmoto »

It would be really useful if SDBIniFile had a location "Get" property which allowed you to retrieve the filename of the .ini file. What do you think?

MediaMonkey.ini can only be named MediaMonkey.ini, else MM wont work...
The location of the MediaMonkey.ini is standard:
<UserDocuments>\My Music\MediaMonkey

If MM is used in a shared envirronment then the MediaMonky.ini is located under the
<ProgramFiles>\MediaMonkey folder.

There is a MediaMonkey.ini file under that folder all the times but when not used under shared environment it only contains entries for direct sound ([out_ds] section).

Using that info is quite easy to get the location of the ini file. If the ini inside program files is empty (use a stream object to check this) then the ini is located under the first folder...

Hope this helps

Ok, cheers. How do I get to the <userdocuments> though?

Yes, thanks jiri. When I was looking at a previous script I noticed that I'd used SDB.MyMusicPath so I'm using that now! :)
