Mp3tag Version: 2.46

As per release notes (change log here):

Portable settings
Previous versions of Mp3tag stored toolbar and panel positions in the Windows Registry. This changed with this release so that Mp3tag now stores all configuration data in its own configuration files.

Since v2.42, MP3TAG stored configuration details in Registry keys (see change log); these were still present after upgrade with 2.46 installer.

Recommend correction to Installer to detect if the installation is an upgrade (you probably do this already), and remove Registry keys after conversion to config files in %APPDATA%\mp3tag\ .

  1. Install 2.45a.
  2. Verify presence of Registry keys for 2.45a.
  3. Set a few configuration details in Mp3Tag.
  4. Close MP3tag.
  5. Install 2.46 installer without uninstalling 2.45a.
  6. Check Registry keys installed by 2.45a.

Registry export files attached (.Zip file).

Thanks for reporting! v2.46a should remove the obsolete keys now.
