ARRM runs on Windows (7, 8 and 10). It uses the .NET Framework 4.5.2 and Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015. It has been successfully tested on .NET 4.7 and .NET 4.8. It is not compatible with Linux (via Mono or Wine as of May 2019), nor Mac OS.
Before any installation of a new version (except Beta and versions without installing), you must uninstall the previous version. If you have created new templates with a name different from the templates delivered by ARRM, they will be kept during uninstallation.
If you have modified/customized the configuration/parameter files located in '%appadata/nexouille soft/arrm/database' , consider making a backup via the 'Backup configuration files' button in the 'Tools' tab
To install the application, simply run setup.exe (as administrator depending on your configuration) and follow the instructions.
For the Beta, you must have the final version and replace the files with those provided in the zip.
For the versions without installing, just replace the files with those provided in the zip. It is not necessary to uninstall the previous version.
The first time you install ARRM, it is best to use the version with installer.
Here is the solution while waiting for the 2009 version:
Rename the %appdata%\Roaming\Nexouille Soft\arrm\Database\cache_database.mdb_original file to cache_database.mdb and relaunch the application
Since version 1914 Beta 8, you need this:
Check that you have installed the x64 & x86 Microsoft Access Database Engine 2013 Redistributable
or x64 & x86 Microsoft Access Database Engine 2016 Redistributable
(note: you can force an installation with the /quiet switch: accessdatabaseengine.exe /quiet or accessdatabaseengine_x64.exe /quiet)
If it still does not work, use the 32-bit version of ARRM that you will find in the ARRM installation directory (available from version 1916 beta 2). The file is called: Arrm_32bits.exe or Arrm_32bits_1080.exe
If you are using Windows Defender, you must allow the ARRM app in Windows Defender. Follow this link: Allow ARRM.EXE application in Windows Defender
please apply the following: Under windows 10, the program does not display texts and forms correctly
Available from version 184.108.40.206 beta 9
Regularly files are updated. If you want to enjoy it without having to wait for a final version, you can go through the Update tab
See dedicated section : Update
To uninstall ARRM, go through the windows application manager. To erase all traces of the application (only necessary if you no longer want to use ARRM):
- Delete the registry key: Hkey_current_user\software\Nex_Arrm
- Delete the directory: %appdata%\nexouille soft\arrm
Avoid display problems
To avoid any display problem (unreadable character, badly sized dialog box, buttons that are not displayed completely), I invite you to apply the modifications present in the section
Change Roms and Bezels paths before running ARRM
For one reason or another, you sometimes work on different Roms and Bezels directories than the original ones. To avoid having to search ARRM for paths, you can create a command file that will set the registry keys with the correct values and launch ARRM. You can thus create a file with the original paths and a file with your specific paths. It is up to you to launch the correct command file.
Example with an ARRM_launcher_original.cmd file
Rem change paths in registry before launching ARRM. Rem Rem path_roms is path to roms folder (eg: \\batocera\share\roms) Rem path_root_recalbox is path for bezels (eg: \\batocera\share) Rem reg add HKCU\Software\Nex_Arrm /t REG_SZ /v "recalbox_root_path" /d "\\batocera\share" /f reg add HKCU\Software\Nex_Arrm /t REG_SZ /v "path_roms" /d "\\batocera\share\roms" /f Rem Rem Starting ARRM Rem "C:\Program Files (x86)\Nexouille Soft\Arrm\Arrm.exe"
Example with an ARRM_launcher_specific.cmd file
Rem change paths in registry before launching ARRM. Rem Rem path_roms is path to roms folder (eg: \\recalbox\share\roms) Rem path_root_recalbox is path for bezels (eg: \\recalbox\share) Rem reg add HKCU\Software\Nex_Arrm /t REG_SZ /v "recalbox_root_path" /d "z:\roms" /f reg add HKCU\Software\Nex_Arrm /t REG_SZ /v "path_roms" /d "z:\" /f Rem Rem Starting ARRM Rem "C:\Program Files (x86)\Nexouille Soft\Arrm\Arrm.exe"
In the same way you can modify other registry keys.
As of version 220.127.116.11 beta 2, you can also use Profiles to manage specific configurations. See: Manage scrape profiles
