Can I Run Music 1 On A Network From Different Computers?
Yes, we call it Multi-User Mode to be able to start and run your database/library file from two different machines here's what you do.
1) Install Music 1 on both machines...the same version of the software must be used. 2) on your server, create a folder for your Music 1 data. I suggest naming the folder just that way: Music 1 Data Move into that folder your: (library).m1 file and the Logs sub-folder 3) Start Music 1 on the first machine....when you come to the first window, Open Database....click the Network button and negotiate to your server, to your Music 1 Data folder, and there select and open the (library).m1 file. 4) Now that the library is opened/loaded....Quit Music 1., 5) Restart Music 1 again again, and this time at the Open Database window, open the OPTIONS menu and select Multi-User Mode. Again click the Network button, negotiate to the server and to the Music 1 Data folder, select and open (library).m1 then Quit. 6) Start Music 1 again...and you should see that it is now automatically opening to the Server\Music 1 Data folder and your (library.m1 file appears in the left panel of the Open Database window. close/quit. 7) Go to the other machine...start Music 1 there. at the first Open Database window, open Options and Select Multi-User Mode. Click the Network button....negotiate to the Music 1 Data folder and open the database there....
Now you are set...when you start Music 1 on either machine, it will automatically look to your server/data file.
Remember: only one computer can have read/write access to the library at any one time.
