MyMovies Driver Problem - SamVimes2 - 10-27-2010

I recently rebuilt my sage server. OS is Win7 x86. Latest beta Sage7 and latest beta MyMovies client + server.

The problem is in adding an ODBC source on a remote computer - I add a new SQL Server DSN, name it, then choose MEDIA\MYMOVIES. Then when I go to change the default database, 'My Movies' is not a choice. I can't enter it manually.

It works fine locally on the sage server. It's not a firewall problem, because it finds the database server (and I have the firewall turned off).

Any suggestions?

This is unrelated to your issue but the new 3.17 version of MyMovies will not work with the CQC driver. MyMovies has changed the database schema and the driver needs to be updated in order to be able to work with it. You should be OK with 3.16 or prior.

That's unfortunate because the newest version is required for Sage MyMovies...

who 'owns' this driver?

I believe dean wrote it.

Yes, Dean wrote it and it would be up to him to update.

They need to create an API interface that can hide these schema changes. If the actual database is going to be the third party interface, every change is potentially going to break every system that interfaces to it.

Dean agree 100% with what you are saying, in the mean time, can we expect a fix?

Thanks

It'll have to wait until after the 3.4 release.

So I just installed the latest version of MyMovies and the existing driver is working just fine for me. What problems are you guys having with it? I installed the 'collection management' version of it. If they are creating different versions of the database for different versions of the program, that's going to get ugly and all but impossible to practically support, because it'll require uninstalling and re-installing just to event test, and I can't run the WHS version at all since I don't have it.

And it's working fine on someone's WHS system as well, which is another version of MyMovies. This is version 3.17 or 3.18 in these cases.
