Download Section A

Here is the DOWNLOAD process:

1) Request a download link for the MMBC core bundle by sending a message to TryFree@codentity.com.

2) When you receive the download link, click to connect with the Codentity file server*, and at the LOGIN screen enter your name and email address.  *Depending on circumstances, you may be directed to a Codentity file server or a Codentity reserved Dropbox® link.

Download Section B

Here is the SETUP process:

1) Your downloaded Distribution Package folder (Windows 8-7-XP.zip, of Section A, step 3) will be "zipped" (i.e., compressed), so start by right-clicking on the Windows 8-7-XP.zip folder.  On the shortcut menu, select Properties, then on the General tab—click Unblock.  (See image)

2) Next, right-click again on the Windows 8-7-XP.zip folder of step 1, and, on the shortcut menu, select Extract All.  (This will "unzip" or decompress the folder.)

3) In the newly extracted Windows 8-7-XP folder (so-named without the zip extension), double-click the W87XP_Ctest_ART folder.

4) In the W87XP_Ctest_ART folder of step 3, double-click the setup.exe file, respond to screen prompts, and follow instructions.

This will install a runtime version of the recommended Microsoft® Access™ 2002 database program on your computer.  Codentity® has tested Access™ 2002 (XP) and determined that it is compatible with computers using Windows® 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 / XP operating systems—both 64-bit and 32-bit.  A compatible version of Access™ is REQUIRED to operate the MMBC core bundle including the True Blend™ Media Player System.

5) After reboot (if necessary), open the Support folder (located in the W87XP_Ctest_ART folder of step 4).  In the Support folder, choose the "batch" (*.bat) file that corresponds with your operating system—and double-click it.

On Windows® 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 64-bit systems, for example, use the  “CreatePath_w7_64bit.bat” file.  For Windows® 8.1 / 8 / 7 32-bit systems, use the “CreatePath_w7_32bit.bat” file.  Alternatively, on Windows® XP 32-bit systems, use the “CreatePath_wXP_32bit.bat” file.

6) Next, from the Program folder, located in the extracted W87XP_Ctest_ART folder, MANUALLY COPY and PASTE the MMBC program file (MMBC_v87X.mde) to the MMBC folder path that corresponds with your operating system.*  On Windows® 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 64-bit systems, for example, the path should be “C:\Program Files (x86)\Codentity\MMBC”.  Or, on Windows® 8.1 / 8 / 7 / XP 32-bit systems, for example, the path should be “C:\Program Files\Codentity\MMBC”.

*If you have changed the default path during installation or extraction, determine the correct PROGRAM path of your operating system.

7) Create a new MMBC program SHORTCUT on your desktop. With the properly configured SHORTCUT, you will use your assigned name "DJ1" and password "ok1" to launch the MegaBase® Catalog (MMBC) suite with True Blend™ Media Player System.

Specific SHORTUCT instructions are included in the PDF help files.  The help documentation includes the precise wording and syntax for the necessary SHORTCUT that you MUST use to operate the MMBC suite—including the True Blend™ MPS and the Codentity® EFX Player.

You can choose to create a new SHORTCUT, for example, on your desktop —OR— simply copy an existing program SHORTCUT currently on your desktop, and then edit its properties using the statements supplied below.  For 64-bit computers, see Example 1 below, and for 32-bit computers, see Example 2 below. 

In order to avoid having to physically input the statement string character-by-character, you can choose to copy and paste the TARGET and START IN statements from the RUNTIME shortcut language contained in the corresponding OS template files supplied by Codentity —OR— copy and paste from the appropriate OS statements supplied here.

EXAMPLE 1— Default 64-bit Windows® 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 statement for use in the TARGET box of the SHORTCUT properties dialog box used to open the Codentity software; although depicted here on multiple lines, it must be inserted into the TARGET box as ONE line, and be sure to include the quotation marks that delineate the PATH:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\Access Runtime\Office10\MSACESS.EXE" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Codentity\MMBC\MMBC_v87X.mde"
/runtime/WRKGRP "
C:\Program Files (x86)\Codentity\MMBC\mmbc_v2A12.mdw"

Default 64-bit Windows® 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 statement for use in the START IN box of the SHORTCUT properties dialog box used to open the Codentity software:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Codentity\MMBC\"

TIP: To make the copy and paste operation easy, first COPY the desired statement above, then PASTE into, for example, Windows® Notepad with the word wrap feature OFF; then copy and paste as ONE LINE into the appropriate box on the Shortcut tab of the Properties dialog box.

EXAMPLE 2— Default 32-bit Windows® 8.1 / 8 / 7 / XP statement for use in the TARGET box of the SHORTCUT properties dialog box used to open the Codentity software; although depicted here on multiple lines, it must be inserted into the TARGET box as ONE line, and be sure to include the quotation marks that delineate the PATH:

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Access Runtime\Office10\MSACCESS.EXE" "C:\Program Files\Codentity\MMBC\MMBC_v87X.mde" /runtime/WRKGRP
"C:\Program Files\Codentity\MMBC\mmbc_v2A12.mdw"

Default 32-bit Windows® Windows® 8.1 / 8 / 7 / XP statement for use in the START IN box of the SHORTCUT properties dialog box used to open the Codentity software:

"C:\Program Files\Codentity\MMBC\"

TIP: To make the copy and paste operation easy, first COPY the desired statement above, then PASTE into, for example, Windows® Notepad with the word wrap feature OFF; then copy and paste as ONE LINE into the appropriate box on the Shortcut tab of the Properties dialog box.

If provided for you, the SHORTCUT text template files will be found in the Program folder (cited in step 6) of your extracted distribution package.

For example, Windows® 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 64-bit users would utilize the "MMBC_64bit W7_Shortcut_ART_Runtime.txt" file as a SHORTCUT template.  And Windows® 8.1 / 8 / 7 / XP 32-bit users would utilize the “MMBC_32bit_WXP_32bit W7_Shortcut_ART_Runtime.txt” file as a SHORTCUT template.  Make sure the SHORTCUT statement language represents the true path to folders and files on your computer.

Here is the TRIAL INITIATION process:

1) With the trial software (and necessary support files) already installed on your PC (in Section B above), you will: Utilize the special MMBC SHORTCUT (of Section B, step 7 above) to launch the MMBC product suite in TRIAL mode.  Be sure to use the assigned User Name ("DJ1") and its corresponding Password ("ok1").

2) Initiate the software using the supplied Product Key.  (Use only the key supplied for you via a Codentity message.)

3) After entering the correct Product Key, follow screen instructions to complete initiation.

4) When ready, begin hyperlink insertion from the Media Assets tab of the AEMR (Add and Edit Master Records) form—accessible for the Action Center Home page of the Music MegaBase® Catalog.

In order to learn how to insert and test the hyperlinks that connect the physical location of digital audio files on your computer with their corresponding TITLES in the music database (i.e., catalog), read the Checklist Help topic in the program.

Hyperlink insertion is a one-time process.  It enables super-fast search filters and instantaneous PLAY commands.

Installing the Codentity demonstration audio files

For users with an available D drive (configured as a Flash drive, physical drive, or partition), a Codentity-supplied AUDIO BATCH file can be used to automatically create a demo test folder, and copy your Codentity audio demo files into the folder.  See Example 3 and Example 4 below.

(If you do not have, or do not want to provision, a D drive, you can hand-copy the audio demo files to a different drive and folder path; then insert hyperlinks to the demo files.)

Example 3 For 64-bit Windows® 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 computers, double-click the “CreatePath_w7_64bit_Audio_DriveD.bat” file.  This file will be located in the Support folder, inside the W87XP_Ctest_ART folder of your extracted MMBC download package.

Example 4 For 32-bit Windows® Windows® 8.1 / 8 / 7 / XP computers, double-click the “CreatePath_wXP_32bit_Audio_DriveD.bat” file.  This file will be located in the Support folder, inside the W87XP_Ctest_ART folder of your extracted MMBC download package.

New users should also read the Getting Started Help, AEMR Basics Help, and Media Assets Help topics contained in the software program.  To learn about automation sequencing, read True Blend™ Help and Player Assets Help.

5) Operate and evaluate the software on your PC.

The Checklist Help, and the Modify Assigned Drive Letter Help, topics will explain how to efficiently configure your music storage folder path, insert audio file hyperlinks, and get underway with your first PLAY event.  Access these and other help topics by clicking the UDS Manager button on the Action Center (AC) Home page (i.e., the welcome screen) of the Music MegaBase® Catalog.  FYI: When ready, open the True Blend™ Media Player System, and the Codentity® EFX Player, from the AC Home page.
