Hello Dano,

Firts of all I wish to sincerly thank you for your work. I really like your tool and after a couple of days of testing, I am planning to use it for a complete backup of all my music files' tags. However, there is still one little issue I can't figure out.

What I want to do is selecting all my music in mp3tag and backup all the tags at once. But I want to generate txt files (ImportString.txt and Tag Backup.txt) in each directory.

I have managed to generate Tag Backup.txt file for each directory but there is always only one ImportString.txt file that is generated.

How can I generate a new ImportString.txt in each directory ?
Alternatively, how can I embed the importstring in the Tag Backup.txt file ?


Kind regards,

Opawesome

Well, it is a good idea to also have a backup that works per folder. So I'll add an additional config that creates a backup file for each folder.
I'll include the ImportString at the end of each backup.txt file and I'll use %_filename_ext% instead of %_path% for file matching so it doesn't matter if a folder was moved.

I've uploaded v1.9 which adds a 003 txt tag backup (per Folder).mte config that creates a backup file for each folder with the import string in the last line.

Dano, is it possible to get a ready message after the first run of "Mp3tagCompleteTags.exe"?
Or something else what shows the user, that the first step of the installation has been successfully solved.

Dano, nice, thank you!

After installation has been run successfully, it would be nice to have a small hint, what to do next, just a reminder or guideline for the user ...
... open Mp3tag
... select files
... run the tool "Mp3tagCompleteTags"
... execute export script.

Is it correct, that all export output filenames start with "00 "?
Please use $GetEnv in all exports scripts, where applicable.

I'll add a hint that points to the readme file.

It seems the csv filenames don't.

I think this only concerns 001 Generate.mte and the .mta file.
Why should I change it?
It's probably easier to find errors in the Mp3tag path without it.

w00t.gif Wow I did not expect such a quick and effective response from you Dano. That is very kind of you. Thank you so much. I am gonna test this new function right away.

Anyhow, I believe your tool is a serious improvement to the original Mp3tag software. I am truly grateful.

Best regards,

I deleted some export configuration files and now I get an error message:

Warning: 'export\001 Generate.mte' is missing.
Please repeat the installation.
Terminating...

I have tried re-installing but still get the error message. Can one help me please ?

Thanks.

Edit: Ok, I have found a way to restore this file by installing version 1.6 along with version 2.0.
You can ignore this post.

It seems you did not execute the tool in its folder. (Step 2)
You just have to run it from its folder without any parameters. You will get an installation message and a report if it was successful.

Indeed, I skipped step 2. Sometimes I kinda believe I am smart enough and don't read carefully this kind of instructions. That will teach me a lesson wink.gif

By the way, I think this topic could be pinned or dano's tool integrated to mp3tag (just my 3 cents opinion).

Looks very promising, I used to do all of this by hand, now I'll give a try to this tool.
By the way, this skydrive thing where v2.0 is located does not open for me. Any chance reuploading it somewhere more convenient?

Always problems with the download mad.gif
I've added the download as attachment


v2.1
- small updates
- I've changed the name of the export action to e&Export#&Generate.mta
If you are upgrading you should delete the old .mta file and also do Step 2 of the Installation again.

The download from Skydrive as anonymous user was successfully, without problems, as always.
