How and when should I update TntMPD for Mac?

Filed under: [Edit Tags]

TntMPD for Mac = Mac Packaging + TntMPD

When you get TntMPD for Mac, what you're getting is the Mac Packaging (the magic that makes TntMPD run on a Mac), and TntMPD itself. 

As newer versions of TntMPD come out, you can upgrade just TntMPD (within the Mac Packaging):

Or you might notice a newer version of the Mac Packaging itself:

It's recommended that you upgrade the "TntMPD for Mac" first, if an update is available.  Then, you can update TntMPD (Mac or PC).  The recommended update is highlighted with a white background.

Will you lose your database?

You shouldn't lose your database.  Your database file should be in your "Document" folder or on your "Desktop".  TntMPD is installed in your "Applications" folder.  In TntMPD, under the "Help" menu, click "View System Info" to see where your database is located.  Or search your hard drive for files with names ending with ".mpddb" (and take note of the the date of when the file last changed).

Even though you should not lose your database, you should still backup your database before doing an upgrade.  You should always be backing up your database regularly, not just when doing updates.  I'd suggest using a service like Dropbox ( and moving your database to your Dropbox folder so that it gets backed up regularly.

I'm just says there's a new version available at the bottom of my tntmpd, but when I go to check for updates it says I'm running the latest version (2.1.78), but at the bottom it says 2.1.83 is available. Is this true?

Also, when I upgraded to 2.1.78 all my contact names and info have a lighter font and thus are harder to read. Is this normal?

How do I manually check for an update and/or install an update?  I see at the bottom of my TNT that a new version is available for me.

Hi Victoria,  At any point, you can click the "Help" menu and then "Check for Updates".  If the bottom of TNT shows a new update is available, you can click that message and be brought to the same place.

So I just got a MacBook Pro for my wife. I have a windows 7 PC. Can we both use the same database?

Hi Nicholas,  Yes, you can share the same database.  I'd recommend using Dropbox to share your database file.  It works on both Mac and PC.
