Yep your right, it no longer works. I just built a new machine and reloaded Win7 64 only to find that I could nolonger install MMJ jukebox. Actually if you keep trying you can get the codec but the printer driver or whatever it is is not available. Well I can go the XP mode route but I'd rather not. I dont like virtualisation its a cludge at best. Its rediculous to have to run a virtual engine then another OS ontop of the one your already running just to run one app. However it may be that that is the only way to run it anymore for those of us running 64 bit. Im going to keep looking for another solution but Im not hopefull. There is someone on this forum who is talking about making a brand new MMJ clone app but no telling how long or diffecult an undertaking that could be.
UpDate: as of Wednesday april 21st 2010:
Ok I have installed MMJ in XP mode. Theres not a lot good to say about this. First off you will need a top end machine and you will have to be running Either The ultimate edition or one of the top end business editions. Even if you have all of that The virtual machine takes a lot of time and resources to get installed. Once you get xp mode installed It is sluggish. Add to this that there are two different modes you can run the virtual machine in and they are mutually exclusive and you can end up wasting even more time. The good news is that installing apps like MMJ in XP mode is a snap. The bad is that it will slow your system to a crawl also you end up with a huge virtual drive on your hard disk and if your using SSD's you wont want to give up this much realastate. For me the biggest dissapointment is that you only get 16 bit color. So if you use full screen album art or use the Desktop to display album art it looks really bad. You get a art poster like effect. I think the only real answer here is either to hack the installer for Yahoo jukebox to remove the need to install that print service/driver or someone or some group needs to make a new program that is essentially a clone written in 64 bit native code. The last is probably the best option. There is a guy named Jamie who has a forum of MMJ fans who is working on a MMJ clone or replacement and is looking for suggestions and will probably need some help too.

I signed up for the site. The one thing I noticed, like I posted on that site, is that MMJB v10.00.2058 installs normally and when you click on the link to start the program, it displays the splash page but never starts. Maybe someone can figure out what is preventing that version from starting and then correct it. I remember when I was running XP on my old computer that sometimes I would get the same problem where clicking on the icon to start the MMJB program would bring up the splash page but the program would never start. However, when clicking a music file to play...it would bring up and start the program. I'm not sure anyone has tried this (I haven't but I might just do it).
I have been running mmjb ver 10. on W7 for a year now and have no problems whatsoever. I just installed it and apart from windows saying that it was incompatible I went ahead and installed. Didn't use any fancy install methods or tweaks and it has worked very well ever since. My only problem is that there are no skins available and I am stuck with the default skin. Anyone got any links to where there might be some skins to download.
I'm still having problems getting MMJB to load with Windows 7 32bit. I tried reinstalling the software, changed compability but to no avail. Can anybody help???
The problem lays with explorer i dont give a crap about internet explorer so i back dated it to IE6 and now i have no problem loading it ... Now i am using XP but i figure IE is still your problem... i use Google Chrome and backdated IExp to get my music match back LOVE IT all works except the Cd lookup....
Followed the Method 2 they've shared in here and it worked like a charm. What I need right now is some skins. Didn't really like what I've gotten so far. Anybody who's willing to share good skins? Would be greatly appreciated.
I have converted my os to Windows 7 64 bit. I have tried to download old version MUSICMACH JUKEBOX 0but was unsuccssful. Do any one can help me to do it? Thanks
just follow the method they do in this thread...keep reading below and you'll find them
I forgot to give you my email on those musicmatch 10 skins it is email@example.com
I have a bunch of skins for musicmatch 10 e-mail and we can see how i can get them to you
Hi I saw a forum post where you said you had some skins for music match jukebox 10? Do you still have them as I'm unable to get the one's I've downloaded to show up in the skins chooser option even tried moving the skins to the program's skins file. I would be extremly greatfull if you could mail them to me my address is KerriKravin@Yahoo.Com
Thanks in advance
Could you be so nice and send me the skins for my MM10 also.....please...... firstname.lastname@example.org
:) TYVM :)
I was following the thread about skins for MMJB 10 could you email them to me as well? email@example.com.
I downloaded some, but they are not working (may be from older version). I'm running Win 7 Home premium (64 bit), and MMJB itself is working fine.
Would really appreciate it! :)
kindly email me on how i can get those skins.. musicmatch has this colbalt skin so so boring been using it for years!!
If you can supply your email address I can send them to you.
I got musicmatch to work on my computers just fine. However, every time I add new music MMJB is never recognizes the first song in the album or if I add more than one album at a time it only recognizes the first one in the folder.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
i am running windows 7 premium 64 bit and it don,t run because a error of missing a px.dll file missing is ther someone who can help me? thanks
Ok here's what I did; I installed Windows 7 X64 retail version from the release candidate (Build 7100). After a simple tweak to a certain file i was able to upgrade from the evaluation verion to a full version. Refer to this http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/3075/how-to-upgrade-the-windows-7-rc-to-rtm/.
After the new OS was installed, I went ahead and installed Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode. From the XP virtual mode install your MusicMatch program.
Keep in mind that if you're currently running the eval version of Win7 you cannot install virtual PC.
I've managed to get MMJ 10 to run on Windows 7-64bit however I cannot burn cd's. It tells me that no cd/dvd are found. In the beginning of the installation I was notified twice that there was a compatibility issue. I ignored that and continued installation. Aside from following the second method did I miss something?
Ok I can positively report that I have confirmed 2 methods to get MMJ 10 up and running on Win 7 64 bit. The first method is a bit involved but in many ways is the easiest and most trouble free.
What you have to do is install XP mode on Windows 7. This is not a compatibility mode its virtualisation. It does work very well but you need a machine with a lot of power and resources. once you have tghe virtual machine installed you will need to reboot. then install XP mode and reboot. Xp will need to be updated. go ahead and let XP update. You have to restart XP but not your machine. now drop the MMJ 10 installer on XP's desktop and run the installer. You dont have to adjust any settings or jump through any hoops. It will just install and will run perfectly. Import your music and you are all set. you can even runn MMJ without XP!
This is crazy but it works:
go here first: http://www.bustercollings.com/blog/?p=282
now go here and get the right installer: http://download.yimg.com/ycs/music/ymj/us/ymj_2_2_2_058.exe
yes Thats the Yahoo version of MMJ. You need this if you want to do a direct install of the regular version of MMJ.
Go ahead and set the properties for the Yahoo installer to unblock and run as admin. do not use any compatibility mode!
Now go ahead and run the Yahoo installer. Its straight foward and common sense. When you are done close it down.
Now go ahead and set the properties for MMJ installer. set to unblock and run as admin. Set compatibility mode to XP service pack 2.
Now go ahead and run it. set it up as you normally would. I suggest you set your age to under 13 and uncheck the register electronically box.
At the end of the installation you will be given the choice for standard or premium. choose standard. now wait. It will probably hang for a bit. just be paitent. Once MMJ comes up normal go ahead and put in your life time key. It will try and verify it and this will take a few minutes and fail. It will then inform you that you have been issued a provisional authentication. go ahead and yse use as normal. I dont know if there is a clock that starts ticking on that provisional autorisation or not but I have been running it for 2 weeks now with no hassels. hope this helps. feel free to ask any questions. I'll try and get back with you.
Where can I get this file? the link no longer exist.
Method 2 seems to work on my Windows 7 ultimate x64 machine
I don't have my key anymore and don't remember what they start with and how many char and what kind they use.
Thank you for providing the installation instructions for MMJ v10. I was able to install it using both methods and chose to stay with method 2.
I'm having one problem though. I can't drag and drop files from windows explorer into the musicmatch playlist window. Is this a problem that you are experiencing? Any info you can provide is greatly appreciated.
Honestly I never add files in this fashion, I always right click on the library view window and then click on the add tracks. I have all my music in one big library and then subdevided into contemporary, Blues , Jazz, Soundtracks, Vocalists and Avnte'garde. That goes back to when Music match had seperate libraries. Thats something I wish they would have kept ......Oh Well. Anyway back to your question....... I will investigate this and see what I can dig up.
My guess is that this is one of those weak spots in W.O.W., but Honestly I doubt it. Have you gone into the MMJ program file and made the native MMJ programs run as admin and in compatibilty mode? Go back and double check. The first time I did this It did not stick for some reason. But like I said I will dig around a bit and see what I can come up with. Until later .....
am running windows 7 premium 64 bit and with this one you can not run the xp mode? i wil try the second method.thanks!
The second method is what I have decided to keep and use. A word of caution though ....... You may find after the initial installation the program starts but never opens. This is because MMJ code is poorly written and needs a lot of high level permissions to work at all. If you get false starts go to the X86 program folder and give Admin privileges to all the Exec programs that have the MMJ icon. Now go ahead and launch. UAC will come up and protest that a program wants to make changes ....... go ahead and click OK. It will always start now but you will always have to give it permission through UAC. There is a way around this however. Look Here:
now you should have a trouble free no hassel installation.
Best of Luck
There is a much easier way. Simply turn off UAC. It won't do any harm. I never use it. Since the launch of Vista when the UAC was in your face all the time, I decided to turn it off as it was so annoying. Got the usual pop ups saying NO your pc is at risk. At risk from what ?. My anti virus and spyware programs can deal with any threats that come along. Have now got W7 home premium(running both 32+64bit) and first thing I did was turn off UAC. Never had any problems. Give it a go. If it doesn't work for you then just turn it back on again.
Most people have tried this and it only works on 32 bit. The 64 bit versions of Vista and Win7 register DLL's differently then their 32 bit counterparts and differently then XP. The exeception seems to be those who have already installed The correct version of yahoo jukebox on their machines. Further I cannot reccomend that anyone turn off UAC except as a temporary measure. If By some miracle you got MMJ to install on 64 bit WIN7 and never had Yahoo installed you are the only one That I have heard of doing this.
i m going to try this because it open after instal just one time en when i restart my compyter it don.t start anymore and give me the a error no settings for recording and download and it you can press new settings but it won,t do it error 17
If This does not work you will have to use XP mode. You should be able to Use it with your version of Win 7. it may be that Virtualisation is turned off on your machine and you will need to turn it on if it is off! Then go here for the install files you will need:
P,S. oh also check out this video it might help you with XP mode:
Reading problems with mmjb on Windows.
My favourite is 7.5 which instals & runs fine on XP with IE6. Problems start with IE upgrade to 7 or 8. MM stops working when upgraded if already installed, or will not instal as new installation.
Uninstal IE7 or 8 thro "Add or Remove" & Windows will revert to IE6 & all is fine again.
There is a simple fix which will run MM with IE7 or 8 which I presume means will work with Vista, but have not tried with W7.
Yes, I know about This. However I cant reccomend that anybody uninstall their current version of Interner explorerer just to get MMJ 7 installed. Its not a good idea just from the point of security and further XP gets Flaky over long periods of use without reinstallation and the more uou mess with it the more problems you have going down the road. I have read that "The Fix" works well without having to jump trhough the hoops of uninstalling a major component of your OS. That is what I would suggest or if you want something that just works without having to do any questionable fix's get another hard drive and set your computer up for dual boot with another installion of Win98.
best of luck and happy computing
it don,t works for me and with my version windows 7 home premium edition you can,t run xp that what the said on the site of micrsoft.its a pitty but i think the options for me are done.thank you for all!!!!
Yep I can help, Im testing 2 variations of installations right now. I'll be back and post here within the hour. Myself and a bunch of others have been hasseling with this for a while. check back in about an hour. about 6:00 pm EST
Just wanted to let you all know, I installed MusicMatch 7 just fine on Vista. I double clicked the installer and it didn't do anything. I right clicked and clocked "run as administrator" and it installed fine. When I run it, I get the "compatibility" error, but click "run anyway" and it works fine.
I've searched for something close to MusicMatch for a couple of years now and NOTHING beats it. What I don't like about all these newer MP3 programs is that all tracks are displayed sorted by artist. If you have a huge library like mine, it's a pain in the @ss! With MusicMatch, all the artists have a + sign next to their names, and when you click on the "+", the music by that artist is expanded. Unlike every other program I've tried, with MM there is no music library listing that takes 30 minutes to scroll through to find what you want. Also with MM, when you double click a song, it adds it to the current playlist, and every subsequent click adds that next song into queue, instead of stopping the first song and changing over to the most recently clicked. I wish someone would pull their head out of their @ss and put together another MP3 program like MusicMatch 10, but without the slow and buggy startup. I would buy it in a heartbeat!
ARE YOU LISTENING, SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS?
Install version 12 of yahoo musicmatch 1st, then install version 10 regular musicmatch AFTER that and it works perfect.
Where do you download version 12 of yahoo musicmatch
I've tried everything to get mmjb v10 to work on my win 7x64 but l=no luck. so I turn to you please help. I really like mmjb I've used it for years plz assist if you can.
I've followed your brief instructions on getting MusicMatch 10 to work on Windows 7 but MusicMatch still will not recognize my DVD/CD drives.
I am running the 64bit version.. .Did i miss something?
Hey Im very curious, Im currently running MMJ 10 virtually in XP mode on Win 7 ultimate 64 bit edition. Ive tried everything in the book to get it to run directly on Win 7 without success. you say you got it running directly but first installed Yahoo? Yahoo 12? I only remember there being like 2 versions of Yahoo and it somehow patched MMJ, but it works the other way? did you have to run with the installer in admin, turn off UAC etc?
ok, musicmatch went up to ver 10, yahoo did 1 and 2 which was 11 and 12 so ver 2 of yahoo
Would somebody e-mail me the install file for Vista. I've used MM for years and accidently deleted it while trying to fix a problem with burning CDs.
I would be very, very grateful!!!!
This is a great app!, I can organize my music and transfer it to my player with any problem! (Unlike that crappy WMP 12 (Yeah, I'm running Windows 7 x32)) and it doesn't uses a lot of resources, thing that iTunes do!, I repeat, I'm running windows 7 x32 and the 10 version (10.00.4033) works perfectly to me! =)
I have been running MMJ since it first came out. I love the supertagging feature but most of all I like the ability to display my high resolution album art in full screen on my desktop. No other jukebox does this. You can also tag WAV files with all the same tags and art etc as MP3's. I dont know any other juke box that will recognise the tags on WAV files.
I actually re-ripped most of my music to WAV format because I have extremmely large hard drives now and space is not an issue and they do sound better. Now when VISTA first came out there were definite issues with it. It ran but it was flaky and the desktop/album art feature would not work. But after Service Pack 1, I did a reinstall of MMJ from the installer which I still had a copy of. I ran it as administrator in compatibility mode for WinXp serpk2 after a clean boot. After installation I went to the executable in the program files and assigned compatibilty mode XP serpak 1. It runs perfectly ever since. This only applies to VISTA32. I am currently running Windows 7 X64. Very nice OS and is very forgiving. I have made several attempts at installing MMJ 10 and was almost succesfull but there is an issue with how the DLL's are registered in X64 vs X32 and the PX dll's wont register.
However I have read an account of someone who got it running on VISTA 64, However the procedure is insane and definitely not for the faint of heart. But I think there may be another way. If I can get it to work. I'll come back and post how I did it here. If It can be made to work on VISTA 64 it can be made to run on Windows 7. For those of you looking for a jukebox that has the ability to display near full screen album art I suggest you take a look at Slacker software.
Its no good for tagging and wont see the artwork associated with WMA's or WAV files. Some people have suggested MP3 toys. Its interesting and does have alot of capabilities.
I had an old computer where MMJB 10 Plus worked perfectly but it has died. Because of iTunes and TuneUp, I hadn't use MMJB that recently but did think it was far superior so finally installed MMJB Plus on my new Windows 7 laptop. It works perfectly except it cannot look up tags; there is an internet connectivity issue at the first screen and when trying to look up tags.
I do realize that there are other products, TuneUp, for example but much prefer MMJB so wondering does this feature still work? If so, which I do doubt because Yahoo stopped supporting it years ago but hope that I am pleasantly surprised, what do I need to do? Is it a problem with IE8? I prefer FireFox so should I uninstall IE8 and use an older version?
TRY THIS, IT WORKS FOR ME
This is a simple shortcut fix which appears to resolve the RECTIFY PX.DLL issue! Alternatively you could create a ".bat" file which could do the same thing.
1. Install Musicmatch Plus v 10.00.4040.exe (or whichever version you have I guess)
2. Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Musicmatch\Musicmatch Jukebox" - Make all exe's run In compatibility mode : Win XP (Service Pack 2) and tick run as administrator.
3. Create Shortcut with following target info:
- "C:\Program Files (x86)\Musicmatch\Musicmatch Update\MMJB\sonic\Px.dll" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Musicmatch\Musicmatch Jukebox\mmjb.exe"
You will need to open player each time, via the new shortcut (before opening mp3; otherwise you'll get same px.dll error (not a permanent error though.
all done! Let me know if this works for you as well.
I have posted in a few places IOT get the message out; lets hope this works for you.
I tried mark compatibility mode all .EXE's as WIN XP SP2 or SP3 and did all recommended steps.
Also I copy PX.dll from
c:\Program Files (x86)\Musicmatch\Musicmatch Update\MMJB\sonic\
c:\Program Files (x86)\Musicmatch\Musicmatch Jukebox\
Still doesn't work.
I see MusicMatch Jukebox icon and then it disappeared.
