Music 1 on a network...Multi-User Mode
When the Music 1 library file it kept in some folder OTHER than the default c:\music 1 , then we call it: Multi-user mode. When enabled, Music 1 then looks to that external folder for the library file whenever it is started. Multi-user is used when you are running Music 1 from more than one computer, or when you want to keep your library database in a cloud-backup system such as Dropbox. When running Music 1 from a single machine, everything is kept in the c:\music 1 folder. If you want to have network access and run Music 1 from more than once computer, then the staton.m1 library file and the Logs folder must be placed in some location on the network. These two can't remain in the c:\music 1 folder. After the library file and the Logs folder are moved to their new location, there are a couple of steps that need to be taken to tell Music 1 where to look to find and load the library file. Here's a short tutorial.
PASSWORDS ARE REQUIRED
If you run Music 1 in Multi-User mode, you need to use both a master password and a user password. The passwords are not case-sensitive and can be anything you choose, even a simple character.
