Worked nicely. The only issue I had was the now playing saving. That is not a big deal. I can redo that easy. One other thing, it is marking as artists as played, however it is allowing them to be right back into the playlist like they should not be in rotations.

@adrinto: here is working just fine. Can you double-check?
@Copper007: The database name can be changed from the setup utility. Just tried again and it works.

PS: @Copper007 i know what you mean now. The database name field doesn't allow to enter invalid characters. To delete the existing name or part of it, just select it and press delete. I modified this behavior to allow also backspace and it will be in next release.

Very good work! I'm happy :)

On the database setup -> database name (default radiodj161), you can delete, but only "delete" button, the "backspace" not worked for me.

I can't find the Auto update utility just only "4" button, but this is not problem :)

(sorry for my wrong english...:( )

Don't worry Csabbi!  :)
The auto update was separated from the database utility and it can be found as "AutoUpdate.exe" in RadioDJ folder.

WOW!!!
I missed the forum for a couple of months (that's not good... I know!  :angel: )
...and I find not just one... but three software updates!!
Great Marius!
So my question is...

can I update directly from 1.7.5 to 1.7.8 (I know... I have to do DB upgrade first...) or must I carry on through the various steps?
.5 > .6 > .7 > .8 ?

It's enough to apply the database update from the 1.7.7 and then use the files from 1.7.8.

Hi Marius, All good so far having used Method 2 as usual.

One thing I've wondered for a while.... for Method 2, I've only been deleting from the new package the settings_****.xml files to then overwrite all the others. Should I also delete the settings_artists which is a text file?

Thanks  :)
