If you use the "File/Save configuration..." feature, just save it to the default directory ("App\Mp3tag") & the launcher will back it up (to "Data\settings\backup") & date/time it on exit.

Known Issues:
MRUs in the directory switcher won't follow the current drive letter as updating the paths in the config file will corrupt it.

Tested with:
XP Home SP3 (Admin), 7 Professional SP1 64-bit (Admin)

Hey Prapper

Any chance for this to be upgraded to a PAF Live Installer?

PortableApps.com Advocate

Yes, that would be my first

Yes, that would be my first choice too but Mp3tag isn't distributed as a ZIP file. I know the installer can extract some EXE files but I have yet to find one :-(

Unless I'm making a mistake, in which case somebody please correct me. I've tried using this...

[DownloadFiles]
DownloadURL=http://download.mp3tag.de/mp3tagv244setup.exe
DownloadName=Mp3tag 2.44
DownloadFilename=mp3tagv244setup.exe
DownloadMD5=2885dee173b519e0e8d6c63eadc35a2c
AdditionalInstallSize=6975

AdvancedExtract1To=App\Mp3tag
AdvancedExtract1Filter=**

and there we go... :-(

ERROR: (mp3tagv244setup.exe > App\Mp3tag)

Sorry about that :-(

No worries

If the author doesn't distribute as a ZIP then nothing can be done for now. Thanks again for your work on other apps like Avidemux, Glary Utilities, PicPick and SM Player Smiling

Try using 7zip to extract the

Try using 7zip to extract the exe as an archive, then you can see if it works or there are any errors, as well as the structure of the extracted file tree.

I've done it so it should work fine, only problems are 1) there are several files with the same name, probably due to different installer options using different versions, so overwriting or skipping is needed, not sure how PA.com Installer handles that 2) it has a $PLUGINSDIR directory you'll want to exclude, IIRC.

Signature automatically removed for being too awesome.

7-Zip

Yes, the Mp3tag setup EXE extracts fine using the 7-Zip front end but the 7-Zip command line included in the PA.c Installer won't do it. In my experience, this is true in most cases. I can't think of a single example, off the top of my head, where it's worked with an EXE file.

So, even if the 7-Zip front end can extract the EXE, it doesn't automatically mean that the command line (PA.c Installer) can. So I am told, anyway.

Mp3tag Portable 2.45 just downloads the app's installer, runs it, grabs the files, runs the app's uninstaller and then cleans up. Or copies the local install, whichever is applicable. It should be totally painless Smiling Did you try it? How did it go?

The GUI and command line

The GUI and command line should have the exact same capabilities since they both use the 7z library.

Be sure to use 4 instead of the 9 beta, since that is what PA.c Installer uses.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/sevenzip/files/7-Zip/4.65/7za465.zip/dow...

This is a special command line version of 7z not linked to on their main site, it's all statically compiled into one exe and is what all apps that invoke it in the background use, including PA.c Installer. Again, same capabilities.

As I said, I have extracted mp3tag installer EXEs with 7-zip 4 before.

I'll skip on mp3tag portable for now, since I don't tag mp3s that much, even locally, much less in random places where I have my thumb drive. Smiling But if it gets an official release I will probably stick it on my drive anyway lol.

[Edit: If it installs and uninstalls, does that adversely affect an existing local installation? The uninstall may remove registry settings from the local install!]

[Edit: Oh you're doing it now, nevermind >_>;;]

Hi MAZZTer,

I know it has been many years ago, but if you do see, can you answer the following Q's ... or may be someone else can answer

Q1: Why you say to DELETE "$PLUGINSDIR" Folder!?!?
Q2: Are the .dll in the "$PLUGINSDIR" NOT Needed?
Q3: Also, what do you mean by IIRC?
Q4: Does this folder do Tracking or what?

Thanks! Smiling

Error Message see:

Sorry about that

Sorry about that portable.me.

I haven't configured "installer.ini" properly. It's missing "CopyFromRegPath" and "CopyFromRegKey". The install directory is stored here...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Florian Heidenreich\Mp3tag\Install\InstDir = 'C:\Program Files\Mp3tag'

I've added them and now I have...

[CopyLocalFiles]
CopyLocalFiles=true
CopyFromRegPath=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Florian Heidenreich\Mp3tag\Install
CopyFromRegKey=InstDir
CopyFromDirectory=%PROGRAMFILES%\Mp3tag
CopyToDirectory=App\Mp3tag

but the installer is failing with the error...

!insertmacro: macro "_If" requires 4 parameter(s), passed 5!
Error in script "F:\PortableApps\Mp3tag\Mp3tagPortable-DT03\Other\Source\PortableApps.comInstaller.nsi" on line 696 -- aborting creation process

Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Spaced out

Maybe I'm all lost since I have never worked in this particular programming language, but errors like that always seem to spring from spaces embedded in the string.

neutron1132 (at) usa (dot) com

first of all, thanks for

first of all, thanks for looking into it that quick!

One note about the installer.ini line "CopyFromDirectory=%PROGRAMFILES%\Mp3tag".
That one would only be working if an english windows version is used, no?
The german version for example would be "CopyFromDirectory=%PROGRAMME%\Mp3tag", or
is %PROGRAMFILES% globally used in windows for the *.ini lines?

thanks for your work Smiling

Environment Variable

It's an environment variable. On English machines, %PROGRAMFILES% will usually resolve to C:\Program Files. On German machines, it'll be C:\Programme. The environment variables themselves are all in English.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thanks for that info granting

Thanks for that info granting me insight John

Installer Bug

I've confirmed it's an installed bug due to an unquoted string at line 696. A fix will be released in the next day or so.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thanks John. And hang in

Thanks John.

And hang in there, portable.me. I'm sure we'll have you up and running in no time :-)

i appreciate that

Installer

This bug is still in Installer 1.0 but 2.45 Development Test 1 should do what you want.

Updated to 2.45 Development Test 1

See release notes for changes.

German help file?

Is it just me, or is the installed help file in German even though the program is installed in English?

neutron1132 (at) usa (dot) com

Installer

I'm glad the download worked for you because it shouldn't have (?) as Mp3tag has been updated again. I've just tried a clean install to have a look at your problem but, because the download fails, it's uncovered a bug in the install code.

I've fixed it but unfortunately the new version number contains a letter and the installer doesn't seem to want to compile it if that's the case. I'm pulling the download until I can have a look at it.

Sorry about that. Or maybe I should say bekümmert!

EDIT1: Help is in English here though.

EDIT2: Here's the error -

Processed 1 file, writing output:
Adding plug-ins initializing function... Done!
Error: invalid VIProductVersion format, should be X.X.X.X
Error - aborting creation process

Ah, combo of issues

Install was previous to the recent program update.

Haven't tried for the new "a" version.

But I'm glad that it pointed out the new issue.

Maybe I'll have better luck the next go-around.

neutron1132 (at) usa (dot) com

Help

OK, normal service has been resumed!

I did a clean install and help is still in English. I also extracted the setup file with 7-Zip (which the PA.c Installer can't do) and only the English help files are in there. I even installed Mp3tag in German (yeah, clutching at straws here) and help is still in English!

Go into App\Mp3tag\help and open 'index.html'. Is it in German?

English

Clean install - it worked as advertised.

The Mp3tagPortable\App\Mp3tag\help\index.html is English.
The Mp3tagPortable\help.html is English.

Ah, the Mp3tagPortable\App\Mp3tag\Mp3tagReadme.txt is German. Looks like it may have been packaged that way. Other packages have different readmes in different languages.

Thanks for looking at this, the upgrade and fixing the installer, too.

Version 2.47a is out

Hi,

Any plan to update this to the latest version (2.47a)? It's a good program and it would be nice to get a portableApps installer of 2.47a.

Thanks

Updated to 2.47b Development Test 1

See release notes for changes.

not valid

Tried to install and got "The downloaded copy of 2.47b is not valid. Please try later"

Is that because the author has released version 2.48?

Updated to 2.48 Development Test 1

See release notes for changes.

Action groups cannot be imported.

Action group .mta files should be copied into ACTIONS folder while MP3TAG is running otherwise action list will disappear.
This behavior is only in portable version.

actions folder

When Mp3tag Portable is running, there *is* an actions folder at "App\Mp3tag\data\actions", which is moved out on close. If this isn't happening for you, I suggest you try a clean install. I'm using default & custom actions here without a problem.

Thanks Prapper!

2.49 installs and works well on Win XP sp3. IMHO, this would make a fantastic addition to the Music & Video section of the site. Thanks Prapper for putting this together. Eye-wink

No issues

No issues. On-line installer worked as expected; I updated from version 2.49. Tested with a music library of 9000 music files (both .wma and .mp3). Running on Windows XP SP3. Thanks Prapper!

Mp3tag v2.50 Released

Mp3tag v2.50 was Released, please update the portable version.

March 11th 2012

Whats New:
• Converter Tag - Tag
This converter formats tag fields by other fields content, which means that you can use it to copy tags from one field to another or to combine contents of multiple different tag fields in one tag field. As already known from the other converters, you can use placeholders for any tag field and scripting functions within the format string to format the content of the specified tag field.
Furthermore, the format string is evaluated while typing and you can verify the results using the builtin preview.
• Unicode Playlists in UTF-8 format
You can now save playlists in Unicode format encoded as UTF-8 if you use *.m3u8 as file extension. This can be useful if file names contain special characters. Applications which support UTF-8 encoded playlists are, e.g., Apple iTunes and foobar2000.
• Discogs API 2.0
Discogs.com released a completely redesigned API for accessing data from their website based on the popular JSON format. Mp3tag's web source framework and the corresponding discogs web source have been updated to this new format
• This version fixes various issues that have been reported after the last release of Mp3tag

Error

"The downloaded copy of Mp3tag 2.50 is not valid and can not be installed. Please try installing again"

Any ideas?
Re-downloading doesn't seem to be helping...

not sure but....

maybe they deleted the 2.50 file, since 2.51 is out now?

Yes, I set the working directory!

Perhaps

But the file that is downloaded is called "mp3tagv250setup.exe". I guess either the downloader renames it or it is pulling the 2.51 checksum live from the mp3tag website?

The checksum is normally

The checksum is normally embedded in the installer itself (in installer.ini).
I think you'll have to wait a little, till prapper builds v2.51. I still don't know why this isn't working though...

Yes, I set the working directory!

Mp3tag 2.51 is out

Refused

If I recall correctly, the publisher refused permission. So you'll be waiting a while longer.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Confusion

Can it be that you are confusing something here? Fact is only, that the publisher of the app mp3DirectCut has refused his permission. In the case of the app mentioned here, however prapper has only mentioned that he has requested a permission. But nowhere a rejection of that permission has appeared. Or do I have overlooked here something?

It works with Windows 7 Pro 64 bits

Thanks for that Smiling

It seems that a new release exists, the 2.58.

Regards Smiling

Updated to 2.58 Dev Test 1

Official Release

So can we get some clarity on whether the developer has given permission for this to be officially released or not. It seems prapper is doing a great job packaging it and keeping it up to date, it's a shame for it to be stuck as a Test release. John, are you mistaken in which application you think a developer has refused permission, can you look again at releasing Mp3tag as a official release?

No Permission

We don't have permission. I requested it myself back in December 2012 and received no response. You're free to email the publisher as well.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Who are authorized to send

Who are authorized to send email to publisher?

Yes, I requested permission

Yes, I requested permission too, back in April, but never received a reply. Which I will also take as a refusal Sad

The 2.63 installer reports invalid installer !

I just downloaded the 2.63 archive (twice) but on running it it reported that the file was invalid.
Dave

Rgds,
Dave

Just wait

This is an online installer that tries to download the original installer (mp3tagv263setup.exe) form its homepage. As 2.64 has been released recently, the old installer is not downloadable any more, so the online installer fails. All you can do is wait until prapper updates the package to point to the new installer (mp3tagv264setup.exe) or - if you feel capable - unpack the paf (its a simple archive so 7zip will do), rearrange it to the PA.c specs (you may refer to the Application Template) and edit the installer.ini to the new link and md5, and then re-pack it with the PA.c Installer. You may generate a new launcher with PA.c Launcher after changing the version number in launcher.ini if you want to have the correct version displayed, but that has to be done before packaging...

But I think, it's best to wait as prapper is fast with his updates. Eye-wink

Better error message ??

Understood, thanks Smiling
I'll wait.

But perhaps the online installer could produce a more meaningful error message ???

Would save confusion like this Eye-wink
