One of my 4 installs of MB on start up does not offer a choice of what library to use ,  and  MB exits with errors.


I have MB installed on 4 machines total.  3 of them are on the same network.  The mp3 files in the networked machines are kept on a machine called DELL . Dell will go into standby/sleep after some time, then the files on dell  are not accessible,  ok.  

I created a library on a machine called BEATS  in a folder called “dell”.  Using the mp3's on dell.


For those times when dell goes into standby/sleep   I copied some files to Beats and created a second library, in the “regular” MB  folder.


How do I get MB to offer a choice of library to use on start up ?

Thanks for any help

Hold the shift key down when starting MB should give you a 'choose library' dialog.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 patch from here.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 beta patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Check out the MusicBee Wiki.
