Musicmatch Jukebox and SP3

Posted: 01-24-2009, 05:51 PM
About 2 weeks ago I installed SP3 (I have Windows XP Home Edition).
Yesterday was the first time that I tried to use my Musicmatch Jukebox since
the SP3 install. The Musicmatch program wouldn't come up. However, the
mmjb.exe did load and it kept me from using some programs and the Internet.
I feel like the reason Musicmatch won't work is because of SP3, because it
worked prior to installing SP3. Anyone have any ideas about this problem and
what I can do to fix it?

Windows XP MCE 2005, with SP3. If you are referring to the last version of
Musicmatch Jukebox before Yahoo! bought it, I have version 10.00.4033 of
MMJB, and it is now playing a track from a series of drama CDs I ripped a
couple of years back. It is even displaying the track title in Japanese
characters!

Not sure what to suggest. Yahoo! bought Musicmatch Jukebox in 2004, and they
are now pushing people over to Rhapsody. The Jukebox is going to become
"abandonware". Pisses me off because I paid for lifetime upgrades.

I'd usually say, "Ask the makers of MusicMatch JukeBox."

However,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musicmatch_Jukebox
, leads me to say that you may be out of luck. You might find a solution in
that wiki (by getting a version newer than yours, if it exists) - but
truthfully - it was last supported before the release of SP3 and may be
worthless to you now.

Would you recommend deleting the version that I have now and downloading a
newer version? I can download version 10.00.4040 at download.com.

Do you have IE7 installed? I had the same problem with Musicmatch ver 8.2
after I installed IE7. After going back to IE6 and reinstalling Musicmatch
7.1 updating to ver 7.5 and 8.2 they all worked fine .That was before SP3
came out. Since then I have updated to SP3 and Musicmatch still works.
