How to uninstall ML2/3 to do a clean install of ML3
I have had a problem since I installed ML3 a while back. The database is populated, but the front end does not see any of the tracks. It has been unusable. I gave up based on the the app development stalling. As with the others, I miss the movement on the app, but fully respect and support the reason.
My issue is that I have not been able to successfully do a complete uninstall of ML to do a clean install of either version. They both show in the setup even when all the files are removed. Can anyone provide some guidance to correct this issue? I don't mind being guided through database changes, but I'm not strong enough there to do it on my own.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
To uninstall I would delete the following
(If you can't delete MLUpdater you might need to stop the service first)
Remove the two directories
And finally edit config.xml and remove
<Task enabled="true">Music Library2</Task>
<Task enabled="true">Music Library3</Task>
If you are running Vista or Win 7 don't forget to run as administrator. If it still shows up you probably have copies in your virtual store.
When you have it cleaned up let me know and I will explain how to install the ML3 nightly.
Looks like it is uninstalled
Thank you Martin. I followed your instructions and it looks like everything is uninstalled. The only difference in what I found was that the files were in Plugins\Common_old\. Ready for next steps when you have the time.
Ok good. To install ML3
1. Get the latest version from the wiki http://gbpvr.com/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/P...rary3-BETA.zip
2. Update with the files from ML3 nightly release
If you have problems with your data I would nuke and rescan it in config.exe

Working as it should. Great to have the music back. I'll look around and see what I can see. Looks like you have some good testers out there already though. Thank you again for both this assistance and ricking up on the project. Glad to see a great plugin continuing to live.
I tried following these instructions but now when I select "Music Library3" on the main menu, the screen just flickers and stays on the main menu. Can anyone suggest something I could try?
There is an error that is in the logs that will tell us what the issue is. Reproduce the problem and zip and attach all logs.

Thanks for the quick reply. Here are all my log files...
I modified the instructions, since you should grab the latest nightly which includes Fatman_do's skins. I haven't looked at the logs, but if you are using Win7 or Vista you have to be VERY aware of UAC to use these instructions.
I'm on Win XP. I did notice there was a more recent release of the nightly, so I made sure I had the most recent version of that and the skins (which were the same skins linked to in that post)
