Ok tailwaggers, it's fixed, available in next beta. It was a bug in Mp3/Tag Studio that skipped the last frame in the file if this frame was too small and the file didn't contain an ID3v1 tag.

Macro Problem:

I recorded a new macro from scratch with beta 6. The file is attached. When I try to execute the macro, I get the following error message:

Warning: Syntax error, unknown property "AlwaysToBeCapitalized1" in casefix section of operation "DirectTagManipulate", aborting.

mp3ts3.5beta5 and beta6 run under xp.sp2rc2!
my dream come true!!! :p

but know i've another prob with the substring replacement:
for example i've a rule:
replace ( by [ not case sensitive, before casefix, not whole word
but nothing happens...
like all other rules i've inserted (feat. -> ft. OR versus -> vs.)
i don't know why.
the new macro-feature is really cool (i haven't seen it in the betas before - you know why :confused: )!

Looks like Microsoft changed something in rc2 that was causing those problems then, nice. :)


About your replace problem, I cannot reproduce it, it works just fine for me?

1.
Are you using the latest beta?

2.
Are you sure you have applied casefixing to the field in which the parenthesis are located?

3.
Are you sure you haven't gotten a space or something by mistake into the substring replacements source string, i.e. the one you want to be "("?


If it remains a problem, please give me a detailed description of how to reproduce the problem, i.e. which tool you used, which tag field you operated on, what other casefix settings you had set and so on.

here are some screenshots of my settings. maybe you can tell me what's wrong. by the way alwaysLowerCase("vs") works, change("(","[") or change(")","]") doesn't.

I use exactly those settings, and it works perfectly for me? As I said, are you sure that you haven't by mistake left a space in the replace rule (so that it is "( " instead of "(" and so on)?

Is anyone else having this problem?

there's no space. i've tested it again and again.
as i've used mp3ts3.05 i also had a lot of rules like this:
Vs. -> vs.
or
Dj -> DJ
Mc -> MC
Rem -> REM
and so on ...
as i've downloaded mp3ts3.5 i recogniced, that there is also a list "always lower case" and a list "always "upper case" :idea:
very strange!

hmmm, i'm testin a little bit longer if it works on your machine!

Please record a macro of this auto-tag operation that fails, and then send the macro file to me, together with a sample mp3 file for which it fails. Then I will be able to analyze it better.

About the "always upper case" list, it is not strange at all, it was added in version 3.5. :)

hmmm. the cause for my problem was, that i've used the beta5installation with the beta6.exe, that you've posted for testing on sp2rc1-compatibility.  :confused:
now with a real beta6installation it works fine!  :D
i'm sorry for my mistake!  :p

Beta 7 is released, here's what's added/fixed:

* Fixed a bug (introduced in beta 6) which caused macros containing operations using the casefix utility to fail loading / executing.

* Fixed a bug that under certain conditions could miss the last mp3 frame header in the target file when performing a "modify mp3 flags in all frames" operation.


Also, all previous beta versions will expire in less than a week now, but this one will keep working.


Enjoy!

Will you post new beta-releases again in this thread? I'll wait for that to test and report asap :)

Thanks!!

Lion, Mp3/Tag Studio beta 7 should not have expired yet, are you sure your computer's clock is set correctly? Is anyone else having this problem?

And Matthias, test what? (sorry, can't keep track of who reported and tested what, at least not their forum handles) :)

And yes, I will try to release a new beta soon, and I will announce it in this thread.

Couple small bug reports for the Name & Tag Tools section under Browse/Edit tags & flags:

       1. When typing a genre into its field and Continuous casefix is checked, the genre is always lowercase, even if it triggers the autocomplete function. If you type it and then hit the down-arrow, it capitalizes properly as it finds the correct built-in entry.
       2. The browse/edit list seems to be sorted differently than the "Custom file selection mode" list. This may be due to Windows XP's improved sorting algorithm being used for the file list on the left. I've attached a screenshot. You'll see the same entry is highlighted on both sides.

I hope this is helpful info.  :D

The genre field isn't targeted by the casefix utility by design (inside the casefix tool settings you can specify which fields should be targeted, under the "Where to apply" option, and as you see, the genre field isn't selectable here).

Thanks for the note about the sorting too, I'm aware of this, but it's not much of a problem anyway I guess.

Hi all! I have Beta 7 here and a problem:

I made a macro that runs Direct Tag Manipulation followed by File Renaming from Tags. This macro runs just fine when activated from the GUI, but when selected to run from command-line it returns the following error:

Dialog Executing Macro...
Executing macro: Command-line macro execution
Current macro operation: DirectTagManipulate

Message Application Error
Exception EAccessViolation in module mp3tag_s.exe at 0009AF42.
Access violation at address 0049AF42 in module 'mp3tag_s.exe'. Read of address 00000000.

What am I doing wrong???  :ashamed:

Sounds like a possible bug. Does this happen no matter what the target files are? Are you using the same target files for both the command-line and the GUI execution?

If you could please upload the macro here (attach it to a post) and also give me the exact command-line that you use when it happens, I can take a look at it.

Hi Magnus! Thanks for your patience.

I don't know how to attach files here in this post, so I sent the macro to your e-mail with subject Problematic Macro.

Well, I've tried running this macro both from the shell extension menu and a batch file, also ran both in a single file or in a folder and in different albums, the problem persists.

The most strange thing is when I run this same macro on the same files or folders from the GUI it works like a charm! Curious, isn't it?

Ok, I've found the bug and fixed it, it will work fine in the next update. This bug caused macros containing operations from the "Direct tag manipulation" tool to malfunction when the macros were executed from the command-line. Thanks for the report and the sample file!

I've read the entire thread here and am confused about Windows XP SP2. Does it work with beta 7?

My computer keeps bugging me to upgrade to SP2 but I've been holding off because of MP3/Tag Studio since I NEED this app to work.

I am running beta 7 and it is working fine for me with SP1.
Is it safe for me to upgrade to SP2?

Thanks

I have tested beta 7 myself with SP2, and it works fine for me. I also have not received any complaints about beta 7 not working with SP2, so you should be safe I think.

That's cool with me -- but it probably shouldn't force lowercase, which is what enabling casefix does now. :agree:

Please let me ask that you reconsider fixing it. I've discovered that I work back & forth between the "Auto rename from tags" and "Browse/edit tags/flags" tabs primarily. If I notice in the auto rename preview that the change makes the filename "worse" (subjectively), I'll go to the specific file and edit the tags manually.

To do that, of course I have to find it, and I look for it based on what the program showed me in the preview and the dir list on the left. It makes it harder to figure out where the heck a file is to edit it if the displays don't match.  :D

In which tool does this happen? I cannot reproduce this behavior? I can use mixed case genre fields in combination with the casefix tool without any problems?

And about the sorting, nah, I guess I'm not currently planning to do anything about this. The primary reason is that the sorting for one of the boxes is not my own code, and then I'd have to patch some library code, which is not very appealing. Sorry about that.  :(

And thanks for the confirmation about SP2. :)

My apologies -- it does maintain whatever case is typed. It was the autocomplete that threw me -- autocomplete in other tag editors I use capitalizes the first word, so when it autocompletes in lower case with TS3 it looked strange.

Makes sense. Would you consider modifying the sort that you did code? As long as they match, I'm not worried about whether punctuation sorts to the top or the bottom, for example. (If anybody's married to the way it sorts now, maybe it could be optional to match the other sort scheme.) Whatcha think?

I don't know how easy it would be to find out exactly what criteria the other box uses to sort the contents. I use strict case-insensitive ascii value sort, but the other one seems to have many special cases. :( But sure, I might take a look at it later, just not very high prio I guess, I hope you understand.

I assume you are talking about UNC paths? Yes, these are not supported at the moment, please mount your network shares as drives instead and it will work fine.

Beta 8 is released, here's what's added/fixed:

* Fixed a bug that caused problems when reading Unicode-encoded ID3v2 tags.

* Fixed a bug that could cause macros containing operations with the "Direct tag manipulation" tool to fail, when executed from the command-line.

* Fixed a bug that only made it possible to enter content of length 30 or below in some of the fields of the "Advanced ID3v2 info" window in the browse tool.

* Fixed a bug that caused problems when trying to use the root directory of drives as the working directory when executing macros from the command-line.


Also, previous beta versions will expire soon now, but this one will keep working.


Enjoy!

Thanks Magnus. Perhaps it's worth recommending that folks disable the shell extension in Settings before they extract the update patch? If it's in use, it won't be overwritten.

Hmm, the shell extension dll in the actual program dir should never be in use directly I think. It should be copied to the Windows system dir and be used from there instead, and on every start of Mp3/Tag Studio it will be checked if the version of the file in the Windows system dir is actually the same as for the one in the installation directory, and otherwise it will be updated. But then of course, the same problem applies there, but as far as I have seen the dll in the Windows system dir is only locked if an instance of Windows Explorer is running, where the shell extension has been loaded (i.e. where a file/dir applicable for processing by it has been right clicked) at least once.

Is this not the case on your system?

Hmm. Well, I'm willing to accept this as just my problem if no one else has an issue with it. I just know that I got the standard "file in use, cannot overwrite" message when I tried to extract to the program dir.

It also happens that I run Explorer in multiple instances, for my own special reasons, so that could definitely be involved. Again, if no one else has a problem, it's not really an issue :)

If I try to access a read-only windows share, mp3ts 3.5b7 will immediately display "I/O error 123."
Specifically, this is a windows share for which guest access is enabled, and there are no write privileges at all.

I usually start the program by using the "edit this file.." explorer association.
If I do this on a read-only windows share, I get the error, after which the program is left with no interface.
You can easily kill in with the task bar or the task manager, however this generates a second problem;
On the next run, mp3ts displays "Error reading main datafile, using defaults!".
I assume that the prefs file is being erased or corrupted by the unclean exit.

This is a pretty minor problem. I have no actual need to edit the files on this share, I just sometimes forget where it is that I'm browsing.
It may be useful to note that files on this read-only share do NOT have their read-only attribute set. I believe that this is different behavior than CD-ROMs or DVDs.

I think this is because the files are located on a UNC path, not because they are read only, is this a correct observation you think?

I'm running Windows XP SP1, running inside Microsoft Virtual PC 7 for Mac on a PowerMac G5. Whenever I run MP3TS it crashes immediately, generating the standard Windows error report. I've tried 3.05 and 3.5 beta 8, same thing with both.

I know there's probably not many people running it this way, and you may not have a setup to test this on. But, any ideas? I can send the error report to you, if you could take a look at it that would be cool.

Hello All, I am running into a problem with browsing and refreshing of directory/file listings.

Browsing: I have noticed that when I chose a directory to browse either via the tree or selection from the dialog box, that it fails to refresh.  I have tried this with the 'Use explorer browse tree' checked and unchecked.  I can provide more details if needed.

Refreshing: Similar to above. After making an edit to a file in the "Browse/Edit Tags & Flags" window, the edits are not reflected in the 'browse' file list.

I am using 3.5 beta 8 (fyi - registered): Windows Pro XP SP1 + plus all relevant patches (no SP2).

Thank you!

Birdman, I have tested it in VMWare, on both XP SP1 and SP2, so either it seems to be a problem in Virtual PC, or some problem with your virtual machine setup. As long as I cannot reproduce it locally there is quite little I can do. Please get back to me if you come up with any specific clues about what might trigger it though.

Cijoy, I'm not sure exactly what it is you're saying is not updating? Could you please give me a simple step-by-step example that I can follow to reproduce the problem?

* Finally fixed the long standing GUI problems occurring for eople who use non-standard DPI settings in Windows (e.g. the “Large Fonts” setting)!
