Adding Tracks to MM 7.7

System: I7/16Gb/540GB SSD
OS: Windows 10 build 10240
MM Ver: 7.7.0.1
Bug: Not able to add tracks to MM

Following scenarios does ́t work:
- iTunes drag and drop to playlist
- Create Playlist from iTunes, playlist gets generated no tracks
- Explorer drag and drop to playlist
- Manually drag and drop on by one
- Neither mp3, m3u can be added

What works:
- Add one file to play list by the + button, adding folder does ́t work

Any pointers on how I can MM to work properly?

  • Hello, can you confirm you have given you user and the system account full rights to all your drives.  We have noticed some users face this problem if they dont have full rights.
    If you have full rights perform a first aid on your drive from disk utility.

  • Full rights?
    Mixmeister asks always for admin access at start.
    That means, the application will keep admin access as long as it runs.

    And admin rights have full access to *any* drive withing the computer.
    A problem might be if a hard-drive is not mounted yet sure to external hard-drives connected thru USB ports.

    You should check also for windows update and drivers updates cause windows10 is still very new, that means that drivers also may have some sort of bug .

    @simon: explorer drag and drop does not work either , add tracks works
    @ceizo: Running windows10 on ssd means more difficult to find solutions , sure if You computer is a few years old and SSD's can loose data in for of corrupted dat and sure if the windows swap file is also located on this SSD.

    Turn of swap on SSD volume.
    start cmd, enter SFC /scannow
    restart the computer.
    If the system file checker reports nothing ok.
    if system file checker reports a problem then note down which file is corrupted.

    next is:

    chkdsk c: /r but *** warning*** if there is currupt data in the security descriptors
    then this leads to a unbootable OS. So to be safe: backup first important data !

    Again restart.

    Then Start settings....last icon: windows update.
    look also for later hardware drivers.

    Remove then Mixmeister and I-lok software.
    Download the latest Pace I-lok software, if You use the 64 bit version of windows, the 64 bit version.

    reboot

    Install mixmeister again but do not let it install I-lok 32 bit version.
    or if done, uninstall I-lok 32 bit.

    Then start mixmeister and try file...add files to the library.

    ps: is this an upgraded windows 10 (from windows 7/8/8.1) or a scratch install of windows10?

  • SSD is not the problem..
    same issues on windows 7 as windows 10..
    brand new win7 install with only MM 7.7b10 thats it... it simply refuses to import files by any other way than single file import.
    all rights are sett til full on files.. I will happily show the problems via a RDP session if that helps...

  • I have the same program. I cant add music into Mixmeister. I have Windows 8, and studio 7.7.

    Would be really nice with some help to get it working.

    The computer writes "a program is the reason why the porgram dosnt work correctly, windows the shut the program down".

    :/

  • Fatal error V7.7.0.1 on windows10 professional when adding entire directories music. Dump debug files sending does not work neither.

    V7.4.4 no problems.

    Sorry Mixmeister but V7.7.0.1 is a piece of junk software never good tested before the release. And, strange but V7.4.4 runs fine on windows10 so whatever has been changed caused lots of errors,

    Post on Youtube a full working Mixmeister V7.7.0.1 on windows10 cause whatever was working under V7.4.4 is somewhere destroyed.

  • Okay :/..

    That is not good :/. the 7.7.1 would work with Windows 10 then ?

    i really cant get it to work. Why buy a program where you cant add your music makes no sene at all.

  • Perhaps the major problem is the wide varity processors, mainboards, soundcards and graphicscard. Hardware needs drivers.

    So there are various locations that can cause problems.

    But, the best a end user can do is latest drivers install for the specific windows version, windows also up to date.

    I don't understand why V7.4.4 has no problems with windows10 pro 64 bit.
    But V7.7.0.1 no keycodes, no library import, no automatic report of debug information and whatever cause I did not test V7.7.0.1 further.

    It's clear: V7.7.0.1 has problems on MacOS, Windows8.1 and windows10

    I can not recommend V7.7.0.1 at all but since I have a V7.4.4 license I can work further but for those that start with V7.7.0.1 a big bummer

  • Also placed under other library topic:

    A work around is run Mixmeister with admin rights, then You can add files to the library but might still miss keycodes.

    @Mixmeister: Mixmeister users are no test candidates, they use the software in a production environment so you should be aware that things should be fixed asap.

  • additional info.
    After the library is inserted using administrator privileges then you can restart Mixmeister again with restricted rights and use the library.
