Fixing the update loop problem with Magix Music Maker Movie Score Edition


When buying this year’s update version of Magix Video Deluxe Plus (International name is Magix Movie Edit Plus) in it’s 2018 version, it’s shipped with a free copy of Music Maker Movie Score Edition (which is a variant of Magix Music Maker 2015)

I found an issue with the Music Maker always finding a new update, when I downloaded it over the update assistant, the update setup told me that it requires Magic Music Maker 2015 to be installed. So you are in a devil’s circle!

So, here is the solution:

1) Download the last official update:ย (German version / English international version)

2) The setup routine of the update will say that the latest version is already installed. Select “repair installation”, this will install the update

3) Check for new updates in Music Maker again and it will tell you that there are no new updates available.

Finally migrated my ( Blog to my WordPress homepage!

I was tired of the inflexible Blogger system bought by Google and as you have noticed I posted less and less over the recent years! Time to modernize it!

The migration was done thanks to theย ย Blogger to WordPress plugin! I have written 1166 blogger posts (excluding this one) since January 2005. Unfortunately this was 38 posts too much so the first 38 posts I had to copy and paste manually before finaliziing the plugin config!


But the re-direction really works flawlessly, I just had to change some URLs of the template as the blog is in the /blog section of the homepage, while the archive permalinks of wordpress are in the root section of the homepage, the 404 error page of WordPress came up, well , not anymore! ๐Ÿ˜€

Try it out!:

Works neatly, doesn’t it? Now, I was surprised to learn that Archive displays on blogs is not a stock functionality of WordPress and not all plugins work nicely with the OneTone Companion theme that I use! I will figure it out with time, please bear with me! ๐Ÿ™‚

How the changes of AIM / AOL Mail can crash your Opera Mail email client program!

As you may have heard or not, AIM is shutdown on December 15th 2017 after 20 years.

While the help article simply mentions “You will still be able to use your email address to send and receive email as usual.” and I can still login to my nafcomaim[at] account, I have noticed a change:

my aim email address’ inbox is also now a sub-folder of the inbox of my primary aol mail account nafcom[at]

And it appears to be a problem that the @ sign is in the folder name. As soon as Opera Mail tries to login and fetch the folders, it simply freezes with “Not responding” and crashes on click.

Thanks to the extended and professional troubleshooting of long time Opera community member “burnout426”, the following workaround was found (make sure your account is using IMAP, NOT POP3 or else all emails will be lost!):

1) Disconnect your computer from the internet
2) Run Opera Mail
3) Go to preferences of the AOL account causing the crash
4) Disable “check automatically for new emails” and “include when checking for new emails manually”.
5) Close Opera Mail
6) Reconnect your computer to the internet
7) Run Opera Mail
8) Add your AOL email address as new IMAP account
9) Wait till all emails from inbox and sent (and possible other folders) have been fetched.
10) Done! Enjoy continue using Opera Mail! ๐Ÿ™‚
