Schema Evolution failed
Any messages that schema evolution (a kind of database update) failed, or the schema version is not the expected version, mean, that beaTunes' internal database is stuck in the format of an older version than the one you are currently running. In this state beaTunes will not function properly.
This can have one of two causes:
- Before schema evolution the database was already in bad shape.
That's why the evolution failed.
- Something in the evolution itself went wrong.
A solutions that always works, is to recreate the database. To
do so, you have to delete the database and rebuild it from scratch.
Starting with beaTunes 4.0.2, you can do this by simply clicking on
Recreate Database in the
Tools menu. Data
that was only stored in the database will be lost.
Before upgrading the database to the beaTunes 4 format, beaTunes makes a backup copy of the database. This backup is located in:
- Windows 7/8
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\tagtraum industries\beaTunes\database Backup Unknown Version
- OS X
/Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Application Support/beaTunes/Database Backup Unknown Version
If you would like to try the schema evolution again, please
- Stop beaTunes
- Go to the directory
- Delete the directory
- Duplicate/copy the directory
Database Backup Unknown Versionand change the duplicates' name to
Database(OS X) or
- Start beaTunes 4
The schema evolution should then restart.
If this still does not lead to success, you have to delete the
database and rebuild it from scratch. Starting with beaTunes 4.0.2,
you can do this by simply clicking on
Database in the
Tools menu. Data that was only
stored in the database will be lost.
