I need CDEx portable multibyte ver.

I use CDEx portable 1.7.9, in Win7 64bit, Japanese.
Converting CD to mp3 with Japanese title or tags, I have error. The converting is done, but editing tags isn't done with an error alert per every music.
Perhaps, CDEx Portable includes CDEx(Unicode).
In Japanese environment, we have to use CDEx(Multibyte).
In original CDEx installer, I can chose Unicode ver. / Multibyte ver.
I want also choose on CDEx portable Installer.

Thank you.

Unicode Should Work

Unicode should work as it does support all Japanese characters. Unless CDEx is compiled incorrectly or not using Unicode correctly. Multibyte is long-outdated and, like ANSI, should not be used any longer.

MBCS strings are legacy technology and should not be used in new projects. The following information is provided for scenarios in which you need to maintain existing code that uses MBCS and it is not feasible to upgrade the code to use Unicode.

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

This might be a bug..

CDEx 1.79, Unicode doesn't work only writing tags to mp3-file just ripped from CD.
CDEx cannot attach LAME encoder with Japanese filename or tag.
I extract multibyte CDEx from Official Installer, and replace Unicode CDEx(included in portableApp) with it.
Then I can edit Japanese tags, without any errors.
This way is also written in some Japanese blogs, websites.
Until CDEx developer fix the bug, I think Multibyte CDEx is important for Japanese users.
