Re: MMW forgetting settings

I'm on 4.1.15.1828, which it says is the current version. However I've now updated to 1830.

Re: MMW forgetting settings

Thought I'd provide an update, it seems to be happening far less frequently if at all. I haven't altered anything. No longer anywhere near as annoying as it once was.

Re: Albums with special characters have no album art

If I delete the offending folder on the Android device, and the album from MMA, then change the album name in MMW and ID3 tags of the music files to remove the offending character, the folder created to store the album on the Android device during sync STILL has the special character! It's the # in ...

Re: MMW forgetting settings

By the way, MM.DB is fine, that never gets deleted or harmed in any way. MediaMonkey.ini is never deleted either, just blanked.

I'm going abroad this evening for a month so will have to test this when I come back.

Re: MMW forgetting settings

Still ongoing. Only happens on first startup after the computer has been shut down. Closing MMW and re-opening does not cause this issue, nor does signing out of Windows, signing in and starting MMW. Also, I've found that hibernating rather than shutting down neatly dodges this problem, however if I...

Re: Albums with special characters have no album art

4.1.14.1813 MMW, 1.2.0.0620 MMA, 4.4.2 Kitkat (latest version available for this device), Wi-Fi sync to SD card, and yes this is from a new version with blank database. I tried renaming the album in MMW, even renamed its source folder. But while the album name in MMA syncs with the new name, when I ...

Re: Albums with special characters have no album art

Bumping this thread. It is still an issue.

Also, renaming the album does not work. Somehow, MMA still "remembers" the old name.

Re: MMW forgetting settings

Seems to have made no difference.

I've noticed it's far more likely to forget its settings if I start it immediately after logging into my Windows user account, though.

Re: MMW forgetting settings

An update. Microsoft has been rolling out the Anniversary edition of Windows 10, and I updated 3 days ago. Since then, this problem has become more severe. Now, MMW forgets settings EVERY time the computer is started. Lowlander: if that were the case here, MMW would be forgetting its entire database...

Re: MMW forgetting settings

Yep, been getting updates as soon as they're released. The COM Elevator/UPNP bug only happens sometimes though, the main thing is that it's forgetting settings (that's what causes it in the first place).

Might try Windows 7 compatibility settings, but they cause other issues too.

Re: MMW forgetting settings

This is still going on, it happens once a week on average. Also, I get a prompt for admin permissions for MediaMonkey COM Elevator, upon which UPNP/DLNA refuses to work until I log out and back in again - it either says "Access denied" or MMW crashes whenever I play tracks over UPNP.

Re: MMW forgetting settings

I backup manually once a week as I would never leave a backup plugged into the computer long-term (in case of overvoltage, external drive failure, CryptoLocker etc) - so I think we can rule that one out.

I also don't run AV scans on startup.

Re: MMW forgetting settings

An update on this one. I've found that waiting for a few minutes after Windows logon for a few minutes before starting MediaMonkey mitigates the problem. If MM is started immediately, or almost immediately (within 1-2 minutes), the risk of it forgetting settings is greatly exacerbated.
