Database won’t open? Don’t panic! Troubleshooting tips to guide you through. posted on May 10th, 2010

It happens. You go to open your data, and you get a message “database may be damaged or in use on another workstation” or “database is locked”. The first thing you should check is your Windows Task Manager and look at the list of applications running. If MusicMaster is running – shut down each instance, with the task manager. Try to open the database again. If it still won’t open, and you network your data – check the task manager on other workstations as well. It is possible someone else has their MMwin running more than once. If you cannot find anyone using the database and it lives out there on a server – restart the server. If you are still unable to open the data – call your Music Scheduling Consultant for assistance.
