I then ran the program and it said updating database. Then it asked if I wanted to overight locked nfos or something to which I said no. When i started, I used my old link which ran with the command "C:\tivo\Ember Media Manager\Ember Media Manager.exe" -profile "Default" and it resulting in none of my info being there. So i figured maybe the commands have changed so I just started by clicking on ember media manager.exe and when that opened it asked if I wanted to open the default profile which I said yes. 
Wnen it opens there is no files and no sources. Looking quickly at settings it looks like they are the same as i had them set in general but I am not sure. I checked my profile directory and it looks like all my temp stuff is there (its huge) and the profile directory seems to have my old db info. the only thing i notice is in my dbs it has the writes I performed before upgrading myvideos42.emm (67877k) and then myvideos46.emm which is small (452k) and a myvideos46.emm_tmp which is (67,877k) matching my pre update. So i am guessing it didnt finish its upgrade? Is it possible the upgrade didnt go right or what do I need to do next. I did move the base install from what was called "c:tivo\Ember Media Manager BETA\" before install to "c:tivo\Ember Media Manager" stripping off the Beta part and was wondering if that might be the problem or what I should do now.
I do have a zip of the prior install from a few days ago I can use too, if that is what is needed. 
I know in the past we were supposed to install to a new dir and copy over the profiles and temp directory but I thought this was supposed to be upgraded in place, so I can do what you suggest. If my only option is to restore from the few days ago backup that is fine, i just will lose some scrape info but the nfos will be there so it should be all good. What should I have done and what should I do now that something went wrong?
adding to my own issues and maybe fixing the problem myself, I just backed up those two files, myvideos46.emm and myvideos46.emm_tmp and then renamed the large tmp file to just myvideos46.emm and the info showed up in emm. I checked and the sources are there in the settings too. I have not tried anything as I want to make sure this is a fix, or maybe make sure something in the coversion didnt get screwed up, so I will wait to here back, but it does appear to have had some problem in conversion. Thanks in advance for your help!
