How do I install and start using TntMPD?

Basics of Getting Started with TntMPD

To get started using TntMPD the first thing you need to do is install it.  This can be accomplished by going the the Install TntMPD Page and following the instructions there.

After it is installed, open TntMPD by double-clicking on the TntMPD icon  on your desktop.  If it is not there, or you can not find it, you can also open TntMPD in the Programs section of your Start menu .

The first time you open TntMPD, you should be prompted to create a database.  You must create a database to put your information into.  If you don't have a database open in TntMPD no features will work.  Everything will be grayed out. (See Figure 1).  If you previously had a database, but now everything is grayed out, you must open your database.

Figure 1.  TntMPD with no database open.

How to create a database

Under the File menu click on New.  Type in the name of the database you want to create.  Click Save.

How to open a database

Under the File menu click on Open.  Locate your MPD database to open.  Click Open.

Hint:  You can create multiple databases, and open the one you want to work with.  In this way, MPD databases are to TntMPD as Word documents are to Word.

I think this needs to be expanded a little bit. After a new database is created, TntMPD wants the user to take some action, such as download addresses or gifts from the web, or not ("continue" or "X" [close]).

Since answering this question is an integral part of setting up a new database, that should be included here.

Feel free to expand on it.  This FAQ is a Wiki, and anyone can edit anything.  Just click the "Edit" tab near the top.

I'm getting a "Application Error" Message: No such interface supported. Is there some suffix that I need to attach to the name i give my database and does it matter where I'm saving the database to? I'm running TntWare on my Macbook using Parallels! please help!

Usually, where there's an error message like this, there's a "Details" button.  When you press this button, you'll see additional details that are helpful in tracking down errors.  You can either copy/paste these into the forums on this website.  Or you can click the "Send Email" to start a new discussion on the forums with these details attached.

I installed TntMPD and when I went to do a mailmerge it says Microsoft Word is not installed.  It is installed in the computer so how do I get it into TntMPD?

@Danielevans, good question for the forums (more people will see your question that way).
