Question about Musicmatch Jukebox Deluxe v8 for PC

MusicMatch Jukebox v8.2 won't install on XP SP3

Recently had to reformat my PC, and decided to update Windows XP to Service Pack 3 (Previously only used SP1), but now can't install MusicMatch 8.2. After a few moments, InstallShield is classified as "Not Responding" and upon ending the process, the following message is displayed:

"An error ocured while launching the setup. The remote procedure call failed"

What does this mean, and is there a way to get MusicMatch v8.2 working on XP with Service Pack 3? I really don't want to use any other version of MusicMatch

    I have exactly the same problem.My Musicmatch worked perfectly well until my PC decided it wasn't going to play anymore! I had to have it re-booted and since then Musicmatch will not work.I especially liked to use it for uploading CD's in a different format (wma) and then using the ID tagging capabilities.It was a very easy to use programme and it's a pain in the backside not being able to use it.Also for some strange reason I can't remove the program from my PC.

    I have the same exact problem. I have musicmatch plus 8.0 and I love it. I had to reload my PC and now musicmatch will not load with XP SP3. Please help.

    So, if I were to do another reformat, and install Musicmatch 8.2 beforedoing any Service Pack upgrades, would it then also work? I'm strongly considering doing this. I have heard that 8.2 does work with SP2, so i'm going to see if I can get by with just SP2 instead of SP3

    I really don't want to use a newer version of Musicmatch, as I heard many features were removed after the Yahoo rebranding. I am really dependant on Musicmatch - As menioned above, the ability to rip in different formats and qualities is nice to have, as well as the simple tagging

    i'm also getting same problem can any body resolve this one i tried lot but it won't working...

    Ok, so looks like we're getting somewhere. Obviously uninstalling IE7 isn't an option for me as I rely on it and prefer it to other browsers. Downgrading to any other version of MusicMatch is also not an option, and neither is upgrading to a higher version - 8.2 is the best version in my opinion, and I need to find a solution to getting it to work alongside IE7

    Any ideas why it doesn't seem to work with IE7? I did notice that one did affect the other, but have no idea why...

    Ok, so to clarify, is there a simple way to patch my MM8.2 program without having to uninstall it? Or do I need to download a patched version and install from scratch?

    I have also since gone back to Service Pack 2 as this is much more stable than Service Pack 3

  • G3M-PH0 Mar 03, 2009

    Blessed! It worked, and it's up and running again! A shame I couldn't get it to work months ago, as i've had to suffer three long months with no new music as i've not been able to use MusicMatch (And refuse to use anything else!)

    Works with v8.2 as well, and not just MM v7.x, so that's good for anyone who prefers 8.2 over the other versions.

Hi there.
Is there an easy way to uninstall IE7 and reinstall IE6?


Posted on Oct 30, 2008

After some searching, I found out that if you uninstall Internet Explorer 7, your Musicmatch will come back to life. It worked for me, I use Musicmatch 7.1 from Dell.
If you tried to uninstall to fix it and couldn't get it to do so, or if you tried to fix it by installing over the top of it, just do a re-install after removing IE7.

This fix will enable you to use MM7 or 8 and IE7 together. It takes about a dozen DLL's from IE6 and uses them.

I have Musicmatch Jukebox 10 but have just changed over to Windows 7.I have a Packard Bell Hard Drive.How do I update from xp please ?

Musicmatch Jukebox 10 is not compatible with windows 7 >>

MusicMatch Jukebox 10 was designed to be used on older 32-bit operating systems like Windows XP.Note that MusicMatch Jukebox 10 is also no longer being developed, so it is unlikely that these problems will be resolved in future.
Before proceeding with installation of Musicmatch Jukebox 10, you need to look on your Windows 7 PC for any previous versions of Musicmatch Jukebox. If you've already tried installing version 8, for example, then you need to run a complete uninstall, not to mention a good clean up of the registry.Use Revo uninstaller to uninstall and clean any registry trash ,revo uninstaller can be downloaded on the link below:

Once you have done this, or if you had no earlier versions of Musicmatch Jukebox installed, you will need to download and install the only suitable version.Download and Install Musicmatch Jukebox 10 on Windows 7 >>

Once downloaded, right-click the installer file and select Run as Administrator. Next, you will need to OK the first of many warnings that the file is incompatible with this version of Windows.Proceed through the installer, clicking Next at each option.When you come to the registration page, click the option to not register and also claim to be under 13. Click Next to complete more steps of the installation, changing the location required for your Music folder if necessary. Musicmatch Jukebox 10 will add files and playlists to this location.As the installer finishes, you will be prompted to install the Yahoo! toolbar. You will need to deselect this.A successful installation should result in more incompatibility warnings. Ignore these, but agree to reboot your PC. Next right click Musicmatch Jukebox icon and select properties > compatibility >check run this program in compatibility mode for: (Windows XP) click apply ->ok.

Philips go gear sa3245/97 not starting

You can download content to a Philips GoGear multimedia player using Windows Media Player or MusicMatch Jukebox in Windows. Earlier versions of Windows starting with 2000/ME and XP are compatible with GoGear. If the device is not recognized by the Windows XP operating system or is receiving error messages, you may have older versions of the necessary software installed. There also may be firmware issues with the GoGear device.


Connect the Philips GoGear to another USB port on the computer. Sometimes USB ports go out, especially those in the front of the computer case. Try inserting the GoGear into another port and see if XP can now recognize the device.

Download Service Pack 1 or later for the XP operating system (see Resources). Philips GoGear can only operate on XP systems with at least Service Pack 1 installed. You may also receive an error message pertaining to the service pack when trying to insert the installation disc for the GoGear support software.

Install the latest version of Windows Media Player. Philips GoGear requires at least Windows Media Player 11. Windows Media Player 11 is available for XP .

Install the latest version of MusicMatch Jukebox (see Resources). Earlier version of this software may be causing error messages regarding missing MP3 tag information and missing tracks. Follow the download prompts, then unzip the folder and click on the "HDD_xxx.exe" installation file. The latest version of the software will be installed.

Install the latest firmware on the Philips GoGear. The actual firmware required depends on your GoGear model. Open either Philips Device Manager or Songbird, depending upon which management software you are currently using. Close all programs on the computer except for the Device Manager/Songbird. Connect the GoGear to the power supply and the computer. Click the "Repair" tab in the Device Manager and click "Repair," or click "Tools" in Songbird and select "Check for updated firmware," and the firmware will be updated on the GoGear.

Service pack 2 for xp crashes the system

and download XP Service Pack 3, and install it.

It is *NOT* necessary to install SP2 _before_ installing SP3.

After installing, run Windows Update (for another 80+ updates issued since SP3 was issued).
