Can I keep my settings when updating to a new version?

Yes, you can install a new version over an already installed version. The installation program will keep/upgrade your settings.

If you want to backup your settings, please choose File, Save configuration. To restore the backup, you have to unzip the backup archive to %APPDATA%\Mp3tag which usually expands to the following directories
  • Windows XP
    C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Mp3tag
  • Windows Vista
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag
  • Windows 7
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag

How to build a portable installation of Mp3tag? (e.g. on a USB stick)

To take your Mp3tag installation and all of its settings with you, you first have to run the installer on your home computer in the standard way.

After that copy the installation directory, normally
C:\Program Files\Mp3tag

to your portable device and also copy the contents of the directory
%APPDATA%\Mp3tag

to that device. Please note that %APPDATA%\Mp3tag usually resolves to C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Application Data\Mp3tag under Windows XP and to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag under Windows Vista and Windows 7.

After that the directory should contain the following files
CODE
Mp3tag
  data
  export
  help
  lang
  mp3tag.cfg
  Mp3tag.exe
  tak_deco_lib.dll
