I'm aware of http://forums.mp3tag.de/index.php?showtopic=9526 and I have successfully launched Mp3tag on some selected files by entering "C:\Program Files\Mp3tag\Mp3tag.exe"
"/fn:%_path%" or "C:\Program Files\Mp3tag\Mp3tag.exe"
"%_path%" (I see identical behavior for either entry in the path box)
But I'm experiencing a problem in trying to select more than 14 files. I'm aware that I need to configure "simultaneous runs" and it appears that the maximum number of files selected and appearing in Mp3tag will be limited by this value, but for me this stops working reliably for values above 14. Sometimes it works for 15, rarely for 16, and never for 17 or more.
Anyone else see similar behavior, and if so, is there anything I can do to get it to work reliably for any selection size? thanks
When it works successfully and by looking at task manager, I can see that one mp3tag.exe process is briefly created for each file selected, and then very quickly only one process of Mp3tag.exe remains and I see the selected files in one mp3tag window. When it fails, I see up to one mp3tag.exe process for each file selected that all hang indefinitely and I never see any files in the frozen mp3tag window, and I need to kill the hanging processes to regain control. For what it's worth, one of the hanging processes is taking about 50% cpu and the remainder are at zero cpu. Never at any time do I run anywhere near my memory limits - I have gigabytes of unused memory while the failure occurs, nor is my CPU taxed about the 50% limit (I'm not doing anything else at the same time).
