Can you point me toward these adaptations that you saw? I didn't make any adaptations for my Win7 64 bit OS and it is running fine for me.

I used it on 64bit Win7 and it works great for me too. Not sure what might need changing

I'll take a look. It might be that MM isn't firing events when it should be, or I need to register a few more events to capture all the changes, or I need to request some new events from the MM devs so that I can register them.

thanks for looking into this. Let me know if you want me to test something

I think I've fixed the known issues now, I'm just working on seeing if I can use DotNetZip for the zip archives instead of XZip.

New version (6.0) is now available to download from my website. Changes include...

- Added count of tracks converted since last backup
- Fixed location of MediaMonkey.ini file not always right
- Fixed 'database is locked' error with BackupPlaylists option
- Uses DotNetZip if available (otherwise XStandard, as before)

I couldn't find an easy way to automatically register the DotNetZip component, especially if the user doesn't have .NET SDK installed. However, if you download and install the DotNetZip installater then the next time you use this script it will use this instead of XZip. The component being used is displayed in the messages so that you can check.

Just tried this and it appears to have worked the very first time on my db file of 824meg .. woooooot

The only thing I noticed .. was that the "update extensions" didn't know it was an update. Meaning, i went to Tools->Extensions->Find Updates and Backup 5.8 didn't know there was an update. I did download from your site and the install appears to have installed over the top and used all settings. Just that little thing.

You will find a christmas present in your stocking .. santa loves you baby

Great, I'm glad it's worked for you. It seems to be quicker to me as well, but I have a much smaller library, so it's hard to tell.

I think it depends where you usually get my installation package from. If you download it directly from my website, then the installation package will be checking my website for the update (which is working)... http://trixmoto.net/mm/check.php?f=backup

However, if download from the addons site (where I update a copy of the installation package) then this needs to be reviewed first, before their update URL will be updated. I've uploaded version 6.0 there but it's not been reviewed yet.

And thank you very much, really appreciated. :)

It seems to be saying there's a duplicate folder. What is your "other" path?

The dotnetzip is a nice addition. Thank you!

Unfortunately, I am getting the same error as Mizery_Made. My "other" path is Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\

EDIT: It seems to generate this error message right when it begins creating the zip archive with DotNetZip.

Yeah I think it is faster in the backup bits too. Took only 20 sec for my nearly 800meg db. Pretty quick

I think the way it's currently working, you can't have two folders that have the same name. If you've got "Extensions" ticked then this folder is usually called "MediaMonkey" as well, so that's probably the conflict. I'm not sure if I'll be able to fix that easily using the DotNetZip component or not.
