Re: IMPORTANT!! PLEASE READ!!

Doug, I'd be sorry to lose this forum. While I cannot help with the hosting, if there is anything I can do to help the management (e.g. getting rid of the spam) I would be happy to help,

Re: Artist Name vs. Performing Name

The versatility of Catraxx is endless and the options can drive us crazy. Or should that be crazier. I do not think there is a single answer to you dilemna other than saying you do what suits you. any one solution will meet well found argument from another user because their brain functions differen...

Re: What would you like fixed or fine-tuned?

First, a wish for a happy Christmas to all and a prosperous New Year. Its already Christmas Eve here in Oz and, if you have read about the fires that have swept our East Coast it is a calmer day where the firefighters will get a chance to gain some control. As for CaTraxx, I have been a long term us...

Re: blue screen

According to the referenced article it could be malware. Have a read of https://www.file.net/process/cldflt.sys.html . If you can do a file search and find cldflt.sys in any place other that c:\system32 directory then you can either delete it or, safely rename it to,say, xcldflt.sys. Good luck!

Re: Using a bar code scanner with Catraxx and Discog

Yes, exactly. Think of the bar code reader as an extension of your keyboard, where the cursor is is where the typing (or input from the scanner) starts. For me, it has not only sped things up but removed the transcription errors. Those I was good at!

Re: Using a bar code scanner with Catraxx and Discog

I have loaded many Bar Codes into Catraxx with a scanner. The one I use is just a generic USB Scanner bought from EBay (quite some time ago) for $A20 or so. Its not a problem, to Windows the scanner just looks like another keyboard. Using it saves a lot of transcription errors!

Re: Birth / death dates in BC

Ken, nah! Choral music rocks (or is that a mixed metaphor?) I have not got back prior to the early Renaissance yet, before that is sort of all Greek to me. More seriously, why not note the birth (or death date) as 01.01.01 and use the Alternate names field as a comment to add the proper details. I d...

Re: Move some (not all) audio files to new location

If you can find a copy of Microsoft Access and open the Catraxx database file with that you can find the corrrect library file (Audiofilelink), sort to identify the files you wish to change select, and then use find and replace. but for the sake of your sanity, do backup first. I rearranged all my l...

Re: Deleting artists/persons

Harald, Unused records are just that, there is no corresponding entry in the data base so there is no direct way you can go back and see who or what they are tied to. Unused records result from several causes, for me they are often when I have spelt a name wrong and later corrected it. A duplicate r...
