How do I get past, "The database can not be opened on the C:\ drive because it is not in your "My Documents" or "Desktop" directory.*"?

You'll need to move your database from where it is located.  The problem with where it is located is that it's stored in a location that can get uninstalled/deleted if you upgrade your version of TntMPD.

You have a few options.  You could search your hard drive for your TntMPD database.  Under the "File" menu click on "Search for Databases" to search for files matching the pattern ".mpd".  Once you find it, move it to your Documents or Desktop directory.  Then open it from there.

Another approach is to restore a backup.  Under the "File" menu, click on "Restore".  Find your most recent backup and right-click on it and "Save As".  Then choose a location in your Documents or Desktop directory.  Then open it from there.

I need to TALK to someone about this... to walk me through it.  I upgraded my system to the newest beta... and now I can't put my file in.

@Melissa, I'd reccommend searching your hard drive for your database file.  It normally ends with .mpddb, so you can try searching for that.  Once you find it, take note of where it is (what folder it's in).  Then, in TntMPD under the "File" menu, click on "Open" and select it.
