Huh! Well, that's great to hear that it's working again for you!

Out of curiosity, what makes you prefer MediaMonkey 3 and not want to switch to 4 or 5?

I've been using MM for years. Some years ago I spent hours configuring it to my prferences,
editing skins, sizing widows, etc. I only use MM for three things.. browsing my collection
in MonkeyFlow, playing the tracks (or album) I want to hear, and then viewing the album art
full screen while the tracks are playing. (I've spent years adding scans and images for each
album in it's respective folder).
I use other programs to rip CD's and tag the files (Tag & Rename) so I don't need those functions
in MM. The way I have 3.x configured is fine the way it is, and it looks sensational on my
Home Theater 60" screen and through my AV receiver. Some screen shots I did this morning off
my TV:
Monkey Flow fullscreen:

Monkey Flow and MonkeyRok side by side:

And finally, album art scan full screen (which I scroll through while track is playing):

While MM 4.0 or 5.0 could possibly be configured to look the same, why should I
bother. My setup is perfect, for me, the way it is....

Something else I just noticed. When I click MonkeyFlow to go fullscreen, winviz.exe opens
as an icon on my taskbar. When I close the full screen and go back to normal, the winviz
icon goes away. In all of the years I've been using MF, I don't ever remember that happening.
But I'm guessing that's actually how it's supposed to be.

To make the latest MonkeyFlow work on latest MM and latest Win10 in non-portable mode:

- extract MonkeyFlow.vbs to the script\auto-Folder in your user-directory: e.g. C:\Users\YourUser\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto
- extract MonkeyFlow.exe to the script\auto-Folder in your MM-Folder: e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto

Edit MediaMonkey.ini in your user folder: e.g. C:\Users\YourUser\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey:
- specifiy the cache folder of MonkeyFlow in the [MonkeyFlow]-Section pointing to the user %TEMP%: e.g. CacheDirectory=C:\Users\YourUser\AppData\Local\Temp\monkeyflow_cache
