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 M1 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 M1 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 M1 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 M1 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 M1 there. at the first Open Database window, open Options and Select Multi-User Mode. Click the Network button....negotiate to the Music1 Data folder and open the database there....
Now you are set...when you start M1 on either machine, it will automatically look to your server/data file.
Remeber: only one computer can have read/write access to the library at any one time.
