I have what I thought was a complete set of MAME 172 roms (it is about 52 gigs). I followed guides I could find for clrmamepro and created a datfile from the MAME 172 binary. I ensured all paths are correct and did my initial scan. Everything seems to work but when all is said and done I don't get a status window popping up showing what roms/sets I am missing, and when I generate a "MAME 172_have" txt file it says " You have 0 of 0 known MAME 172 sets (+ BIOS sets)". Yet it takes minutes to scan everything and even moves some roms to the backup folder as I assume those ones are corrupt or wrong in some way.
Again I am sure I have set up the paths correctly and I am going through the steps carefully from multiple tutorials I have seen online. I am not trying to fix or rebuild at this point just trying to do an initial scan to see what I need from my current set.
Any help is appreciated. Sorry if I am not giving enough info but I think there is just one step I am missing.
