CHURCH MUSICIAN 5.0 PATCH

A patch for Church Musician 5.0 is available here. The patch requires an existing Church Musician 5.0 installation. It addresses issues with:

    * Conversion from Church Musician 3.x
    * Mail merge with Word 2003
    * Searching by bar code
    * Deleting an event in the "Take Attendance" function now deletes the event itself as well as fixing the individual people's attendance records.

This patch also includes issues fixed with patch 5.0.1, which addressed the following:

    * Setting Report order in Simple Search reports
    * Irregularities in the Item Checkout system.

This patch is 12.8MB in size and is version 5.0.2, build 1899. Save the patch to your hard drive. To install the patch, first verify that Church Musician 5.0 is not running, then run the downloaded file "ChurchMusician502Update.exe" by double-clicking it, or by accessing it through START>RUN. Target your existing Church Musician 5.0 location for installation (C:Program FilesTempo ProductionsChurch Musician 5.0 is the default). You will need your Church Musician 5.0 serial number when installing it. The serial number is located on the back of the CD case that your original 5.0 software came in, or by selecting Tools>Register in your current 5.0 installation.

BARCODE FILE UPDATE

An updated barcode data file for Church Musician 5.0.2 is available here. Save the zip file to your hard drive, then extract the contents of the zip file into the folder containing Church Musician 5's data, which is typically "C:Program FilesTempo ProductionsChurch Musician 5.0Data" unless you are on a network, in which case you must look for the DATA folder in the network location. Allow the files within the zip file to replace files of the same names. This barcode file was last updated on April 18, 2007.

INTERACTION BETWEEN CHURCH MUSICIAN 5 and SERVICE DESIGNER
If your “Service Designer” menu in Church Musician 5 is grayed out even though you have Service Designer installed, perform the following procedure. Use the Windows Notepad accessory to open the file CMW.INI which is located in your Windows folder (C:WINDOWSCMW.INI). (You will need to change the “Files of type...” picklist in Notepad's File>Open dialog to show “All Files” instead of only Text Documents). When you open CMW.INI, it will look something like this:
[TEMPO]
DataPath=C:Documents and SettingsYour NameMy DocumentsTempo ProductionsChurch Musician
[CMW]
UserName=Your Name
Org=Your Church
Path=C:Program FilesTempo ProductionsChurch Musician 5.0cmw.exe
[SD]
Path=

Type the location of Service Designer on your system after the “PATH=” statement on the last line of this file so that it reads:

Path=C:SD4

Where “C:SD4” represents the location of Service Designer on your system. The closing backslash is important, so make sure it is there. Once you have made the necessary adjustment, select “Save” from Notepad's “File” menu, then exit Notepad.

BARCODE FILE UPDATE

An updated barcode data file for Church Musician 4.5.4 is available here. Save the zip file to your hard drive, then extract the contents of the zip file into the folder containing Church Musician 4.5's data, which is typically "C:CMW45Data" unless you are on a network, in which case you must look for the DATA folder in the network location.
