Install / uninstall on Windows

How can I install a newer release of the program without deleting my tune files, or the extended sound database I installed some time ago?

If you are using an installer, downloaded from our Website, to update your version, only the application and its internal data files will be changed. All other files will be preserved.
If you are performing a complete install of the new version, just install it over the old version, in the same folder, without uninstalling beforehand.

After an update, I get the "Language kit not found" message, and the software does not run. Why?
You forgot to include the language files in the archive. Download it again, after having selected "Include language files" and "English" in the pop-up menu.

I already own another application that uses the ".MUS" file extension. How to avoid an extension conflict?

When installing the program, select a custom install, and in the next panel, edit the file extensions. Deselect ".MUS" and let ".MYR" selected.
Once installed, run the program, then select "Configuration>Global settings".
In the "Save" tab, select "by default, propose the .myr extension instead of .mus".
Doing so, the program will use the ".MYR" extension only.

Where does the GOLD sound database installs itself?

Run the little program called "Myrpref.exe" located in the install directory of the application. A window opens on the application preferences.
The GOLD sound database is installed in the "Myriad\GMDigit" subfolder of these preferences.

How to uninstall the application?

Select "Uninstall" in the group that has been created for the application. If you do not intend to use any of our applications anymore, you can also remove the SToccata font file from the system font folder.

How to uninstall the GOLD sound database?

You may have to uninstall the GOLD sound database, for example if you sell your computer.
In the “Configuration>Sound base“ menu, select the GOLD sound database, then in the same menu, select "Uninstall current database". GOLD sound database files will be deleted from your Hard Disk.

I have to format my Hard Disk on my PC, how can I backup my Harmony/Melody settings?

Run the "myrpref.exe" program which is located in the Harmony or Melody install folder (typically, "C:\Program Files\Harmony Assistant" or "C:\Program Files\Melody Assistant")
A window opens, copy all files from this folder.
Format your disk.
Reinstall Harmony, run the "myrpref.exe" program which is located in the Harmony folder.
Copy the backup files to this folder.

How to use Unicode characters (foreign language text display) on Windows 95, 98 and ME?

You need the "Unicows" dynamic library, developed by Microsoft. Download it here, then run this installer. When you are asked for the target folder, select the one in which Harmony Assistant or Melody Assistant has been installed (typically, in "C:\Program Files\") followed by the name of the program. Then run the program again.
