View Full Version : new version doesn't work

04-24-2002, 02:18 PM

since I installed the new version of DB I have no music any more. I have been using one of the previous verions of DB for quite some time using XP. Best player I know:thumbup:

After installing the new release, the player starts, XP gently explains to me that Amp.exe has encoutered a problem and needs to close and would I please microsoft.

For those with more insight into the dark depths of MSXP the error signature:
AppName: amp.exe AppVer: ModName: unknown
ModVer: Offset: 20202020

"My Music Collections" starts, but disappears silently and is very persistent about doing that!

I have tried un- and reinstalling DB several times, but to no avail.

Any suggestions:confused:

Uninstall it, then delete 'C:\Program Files\Illustrate\dBpowerAMP'

also remove from registry:

Thank you Spoon! I followed your advice and had some succes.

DB is now starting and staying there. "My music collection" starts and all my music was found again, but I moved it to another disc. So no music just rapid switching between the MP3's it used to know. I deleted all media from the collection and reenter them using the find option top left in the new location.

After adding 2585 media files, I was again told that the editorprogram (I forgot the exact name) has encoutered a problem and needs to close and would I please contact microsoft again. As a result "My music collection" went down, the player stayed and is operational. Is there a max to the * of files stored?

Can't restart my system just now, so I en-queued some music and it plays.

What to do after I reboot? Simply add'm again?

No, it sounds like one of your files is somehow 'bad'.
