I’ve just got Vocaloid 2 Prima, after months of waiting. After installing it I tried to open it but got an error message – "Cannot open database – Terminating program"
I initially changed the directory for the database files to a second hard disc but have since uninstalled & reinstalled & tried copying the database files to the default location but I am still getting the same error message.
I’m very dissapointed having waited so long to usa Prima, any suggestions as to the problem?
My PC is well above the system requirements & I am running Windows Vista.
Thanks.

Hi
Have you another product installed vocaloid2? Prima is dvd or download?, The directory of installation is indifferent.
I have installed Sweet Ann and Prima in the same directory without problems, but it gave to me problems when he installs the version of download Miku of EMULE.
I hope that between all we could help you
Regards
Jose

Hi Jose,
Thanks for the fast reply. I have Lola & Sweet Ann already installed & working fine, Lola, Sweet Ann and Prima are all on CD and I don’t have any other Vocaloid products.
I think I am going to try uninstalling all 3 products tonight & then re-install them, but with Prima first. I will let you know how I get on.
I’d also like to say how impressed I have been with your demo’s, they give the rest of us Vocaloid users something to aspire to!
Julian.

Yes please, have us informed. this way we can help to possible problems for other users.
Thank you for his words of the demos.

I had a similar problem with Prima in the installation, I don’t believe that it’s a problem of compatibility with other (legal) Vocaloid. I resolve the problem reinstalling windows (xp), I suppose that with VISTA it has to be similar .

Hi Jose,
I thought I would let you know that I have got Prima working now. I uninstalled all my Vocaloid products & re-installed Prima but still had the same problem.

I then remembered a problem that I had installing another program shortly after I got Vista for the first time and I recalled that the solution was to right click on the program icon & select Properties & then the Compatibility tab. There were then 2 things that I had to change, firstly the drop down list for “Run this program in compatibility mode for” needed to be set to Windows 98/Windows ME rather than Window XP (service pack 2) & secondly I needed to tick the box for “Run as administrator”.

So I did both of these but again had the same problem, so I tried keeping the “Run as administrator” box ticked & reverting to compatibility with Window XP (service pack 2) … which worked!

The strange thing is that I had previously tried right clicking on the Vocaloid icon & clicked on “Run program as administrator” to try to open it, but this didn’t work.

I hope this may help other Prima users who encounter this problem. Thanks again for you interest Jose, I’m now going to try Prima out & see if the wait was worth it!

It makes me happy to know that you solve the problem, :D
I’m sure that you make big songs with Prima, It’s a voice wonderful and easy to mold. <img class=” />
