Same here. Neither work, search by title or IMDb ID. If I search by title I don't get an error. The process completes successfully, but no data populates. If I search by IMDb ID I get the error message.

Same here.
As fdavis71 wrote it is possible to ignore the error announcement and search by title. But there is no data transfer after the process completed.

Do we have any timeline on when these issues may start getting resolved?

I now believe that there is no longer a timeline. The app doesn't make enough profit anymore and programmers are expensive. The problem could certainly be solved quickly in terms of programming.

The "C:\ProgramData\MyMovies\DataProviders\IMDB.com.NET2.0.dll" file just needs to be updated. Once updated the file could be provided here on the forums, then included with the next build of the application whenever that happens to be.

It has been incredibly frustrating to have this function out of service for so long. As already noted, the lookup by IMDB-ID produces an error (which seems to be due to the “?s=all” parameter, which if removed from the URL does not produce an error), and an even deeper problem which is that the IMDB lookup results are no longer loaded. Lookups by title do not error out, but overwrite the current results with a blank list.

I’m pretty much at a standstill with all my data entry building out the MyMovie database for my collection. I’m hoping there will be at least a patched version ASAP, even if not a full beta for the next point release.

Please temporary use the attached dll.

Place the extracted file in: C:\ProgramData\My Movies\DataProviders

Right click the extracted file and ensure you do not have an "Unblock" button (Windows can do that on downloaded files).

File Attachment(s):
IMDB.com.NET2.0.zip (12kb) downloaded 14 time(s).

I've downloaded and installed the new dll file (and rebooted), but the IMDB search by both IMDB-ID or title has only been hanging for me. The "Search" box is highlighted, but there is never indication that the process has run to conclusion either with or without an error.

DISREGARD THE ABOVE: I found the "Unblock" switch in the properties, checked the box, and now it is working.

Thanks Binnerup for the updated DLL file. It's working beautifully once again, in my case with My Movies 4.07. The given IMDb data is downloading and populating successfully and irrespective of how I search, i.e. title or IMDb ID. No issues at all.
