Hi Rusty,

I was getting errors like this:
Error #429 - Microsoft VBScript runtime error
ActiveX component can't create object: 'SongsDB.SDBApplication'
But I think I solved it, or at least found a workaround.

My system:
OSX 10.7.4
Parallels Desktop 7.15094.749908
Windows XP 64bit SP2
Portable MediaMonkey on external USB drive, shared via \\psf on m:/mediamonkey

I got rid of those errors and scripts started to working when I installed regular version to m:/mediamonkey and than reinstalled portable over it.

Before that I reinstalled .NET (all versions), even reinstalled SP2, used CCleaner, ... and many sleepless nights.

hope that helps for 'future generations' :)

Perhaps give us some more info:
-what build of MM
-what triggers the error
-what's the error

try getting the newest release of directx 9c there was a Link 3 days ago on majorgeeks. it might fix something?

go to windows update then click the link on that page to microsoft updates and use it to find any software updates you might need that windows update don't look for.

i just got a bunch of them tuesday, and some things in mediamonkey was effected by one of the updates not sure which one but it changed some things in the way the skin looks. mostly it changed the border around the player on the skin. as in it now shows the border when it did not before.

so there might just be something in vista that is needing updated that is not noticeable when we look for it.

It's somewhat comforting to know it isn't only me... :-)

Same here Judas...I've tried everything :-( Can't somebody help us?

still lost on this one...can´t find the installer of the wsh for vista, the one for XP won't install...still can't use MM without getting the errors at launch...any help would be greatly greatly appreciated!!

Install Debug version and let MM Send us Debug Logs on Crash.

Vista came with 5.7 actually 5.7.18000.

I'm having a similar problem with MM 1127. When I launch MM with an external vb script it launches fine. However when I run the same script again I get the above error.

If I launch MM from the explorer then I can run the script as many times as I want with no problems.

Here is the script:

Code: Select all

Dim SDB : Set SDB = CreateObject("SongsDB.SDBApplication")
SDB.ShutdownAfterDisconnect = false
I notice that when I launch it from the script the Parent process is svchost.exe as opposed to explorer.exe. Perhaps there's a clue here?

Process explorer shows the command line for launching MM when under svchost.exe as C:\PROGRA~1\MEDIAM~1\MEDIAM~2.EXE -Embedding

I installed (RC3) and I can confirm I'm still having the same problems. Please Help me!! :-)...also, couldn't find where to download the WSH for Vista (did find v5.7 for Server 2003 and XP though...)

Will do reinstall the script host...however, I still don't understand why if i follow the same steps with MM there is no error....the song i'm playing simply restarts and that's all! Very strange, isn't it? do you know what can be happening?

It helps, your Scripting Host is Damaged Try to reinstall it.
This Simple script checks if WSH can be initialized Correctly.
Search Windows Scripting Host Download on Form I know that there should be links to download.

Thanks Peke!

So here's what I Did:

1. Deleted The scripts folder,..made a new one which only had an empty scripts.ini file and an empty auto folder.

2. Opened errors appeared on launch, as expected.

3. Placed the example script as example.vbs on the (previously empty) scripts folder.

4. played a song on MM

5. Executed the script from windows explorer

6. Got an error:

Code: Select all

Windows Script Host
Script:      C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Example.vbs
Line:         2
Char:         1
Error:        ActiveX component can't create object: 'SongsDB.SDBApplication'
Code:         800A01AD
Source:       Microsoft VBScript runtime error
So,...i don't know if that helps, or even if the steps i followed were what i was siupposed to do? or if that means the problem isn't MM related...ideas?

THX for supoort. I've been watching also.

I have almost identical setup like yours including Zone Alarm and have no problems at all :(

I don't think that MM debug will be helpful but who knows.

Can you try to do this simple script start outside of MM, but while MM is started and playing (If Need delete all Scripts from Mm folder)?

Code: Select all

Set SDB = CreateObject("SongsDB.SDBApplication")
That way we will see if MediaMonkey is the problem.

Hey Peke, thanks for the replies!! (I'm here, 4:45 am supporting your countryman Novak Djokovic on the Aus Open Final!)

I've been playing around with the settings, permissions, etc. on ZoneAlarm and it didn't make any change so far....29 works but .31 and .32 don't. I think I can discard the problem and think ZoneAlarm isn't the culprit, cause even when it's shut off the problem is still happening.

Any ideas where to look from here? Windows settings? will a debug log helo at all? Anything will be appreciated
