i see. You can rename them back again as the new portable instance will have created its own default ini file and MB will then use that

I'm also interested, Steven. As, for now, there are no way to configure two completely different displays and browsing interfaces, I would like to use a "normal" version and a portable one to have access to two ways of browsing files (one for all my music, one just for classical music).

Could you alert us when the change is effective and explain how to set it up ?

Thank you very much for your commitment !

I think the goal of this change is that if you apply 3.0 to a portable installation, you don't have to do anything special.  So there shouldn't be any special instructions, just add the files to the folder as usual.

It works, now ! Perfect ! (except that one can't open both 3.0 version and 3.0 portable at the same time, but it doesn't realy matter)

If you really want to open both at the same time for whatever reason (I often want to take screenshots of the default while using my own library in the other), you can use Sandboxie.  http://www.sandboxie.com/
