Downgrade from beaTunes 5 to beaTunes 4

If you have upgraded to beaTunes 5, but then decided that you'd rather stay with beaTunes 4, please follow the steps below:

  • Stop beaTunes
  • On macOS, open Finder and go to /Users/YOUR_USER_NAME/Library/Application Support/beaTunes/ (you may have to use Go to Folder... from Finder's Go menu, as Finder hides Library from you)
  • On Windows, open File Explorer and go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\tagtraum industries\beaTunes
  • Delete the directory Database, as it contains the beaTunes 5 database
  • Duplicate/copy the directory Database Backup 4.x.y (this is the backup of the beaTunes 4 database) and change the duplicates' name to Database
  • Start beaTunes 4 (if you don't have it anymore, download and install from here)
  • If you don't see any columns in your main table view, please restart beaTunes 4
