Updating to 6.0.0.1

There are two ways to update your JukeBox 6 program.  This only pertains if you have already installed version 6.0.0.0.  

1 - Download the installation file and reinstall the program.  This will NOT erase any of your settings or data.

2 - Download just the new program file and place it in your existing JukeBox 6 folder replacing the original file.  This is a smaller file to download but will not include the modified Help file.

Both of these downloads are available on the JukeBox download page - but don't go there yet, please.  Keep reading this page.

When you run the new version there will be an Artist File Name creation window displayed that will create file names using the existing Artist Title Strip Name.  You can read more about that below.  If you had used version 5 in the past and have not added any records you may want to reimport your version 5 data.  The import will bring in the Artist File Names from the version 5 data.

With the addition of artist file names in JukeBox 6.0.0.1 there will be the creation of artist file names from the artist title strip names.  This will result in some file names not being correctly created.  Below is the explanation of how the file names are created and link to the online Help file for the easiest way to correct the file names that are not correct.

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE TEXT BELOW BEFORE GETTING 6.0.0.1 SO YOU WILL BE PREPARED FOR THE FILE NAME CREATION PROCESS.

Here are the ways the artist file name will be created.  

A single name artist such as CHER will be created as CHER - this is correct.

If the Remove THE option is selected a title strip name like THE BEATLES will have a file name created as BEATLES.  If not selected the file name will be BEATLES, THE.  These file names will be correct.

If there is a comma (,), a slash (/) , a hyphen(-) or an ampersand (&) in the title strip artist name the whole name will be treated as a single name. So, for example, ANTHONY & THE IMPERIALS file name will be initialized without any changes as ANTHONY & THE IMPERIALS.  These file names will be correct.

If the word "AND", or "And" or "and" is in the title strip artist name the whole name will be treated as a single name. So, for example, GERRY AND THE PACEMAKERS file name will be initialized without any changes as GERRY AND THE PACEMAKERS.  These file names will be correct.

If none of the above conditions exist the artist file name will be initialized as [last name], [first name].   This is where there will be some incorrect file names created.

- A single person's two named title strip name such as PAUL SIMON will be initialized as SIMON, PAUL - this is correct.
- A single person's three or more named title strip name such as BILLY JOE ROYAL will be initialized as JOE ROYAL, BILLY - this is incorrect and you will need to modify it later on the Artists screen to read ROYAL, BILLY JOE.
- Any band name with more than one space will be initialized incorrectly and you will need to modify it.  For example BLUE OYSTER CULT will be created as OYSTER CULT, BLUE and will need to be modified.
