Have been using dBAmp for a long time successfully but have had to reinstall following a disk crash. Have been trying to import the backed up file of 1361 MP3 files. It starts OK but then a dialogue box appears as follows: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library. Program C:\Program Files\Illustrate\dBpower AMP\Editor.exe abnormal program termination. The dialogue box behind shows typically; Adding Tracks. 23 of 1361. dBamp has of course crashed. I have tried importing using individual files and just a small number (50) with the same result. The Reset utility has been run to clear the registry and reinstalling dBamp, but the problem remains. A solution or any suggestions would be most welcome. Have been trying to sort this out for two weeks! Thanks, Jasper

do you have the latest installed? here: http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?t=2261

and here: http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?t=2045

and what OS you using?
i had this happen once a long time ago but don't remember the remedy. it might have been corrupt ID tags i think.

you could also try:

delete the folder C:\program files\illustrate\dbpoweramp

*** if you have my player backup your music collection database.

The run regedit and delete the key (folder):

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Illustrate

Hi Rasgo - thanks for your response to my enquiry. It worked like magic! Installed both the Beta programs you guided me to and then installed 2138 music files without any difficulty. I had wondered about corrupted tag files but may be the Beta program editor.exe can handle this.

All appears to be well except that the On Screen Mini Control closes/crashes when I click on it to see what is playing. It does not expand to the right. Perhaps a glitch in the Beta? Thanks again, Jasper

can you try switching to another skin to see if it happens again. you can download the original default skin from here: http://www.sensory-fusion.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=81&sort=6&cat=513&page=1
that's if you don't already have it.

if this skin doesn't crash then the other skin might be corrupted and will need deleting and reinstalling. i don't know the correct proceedure for uninstalling the default skin accept for deleting it out of the registry and reinstalling dap again.

but let us know how it goes.

The Default "On Screen Mini Control" is known to have a displaying problem with the expanding slideout on Windows 98SE and 2000. Here's a discussion on the subject.
