Editing any type of metadata (mp3 files - album, artist, etc.) not working.
The error I am getting is "Could not verify field write".
Has anyone experienced this and found a solution?
I am on Windows 10, 64 bit, and just downloaded the most recent version of Advanced Renamer.
I am using a registered version.

Thanks

I'm getting exactly the same problem, with exactly the same platform - latest registered version on Windows 10, 64 bit.

Note, the metadata feature does not work for all fields for all file types. That is why the program states "Will work for most JPEGs". Writing of ID3 tags in MP3 files is not supported. Changing metadata i tricky. There are so many file formats out there, in many different versions, written by various programs, many not using the standards correctly. There is not way to know for sure if the program is able to change a particular field, without trying it out.
I could limit the program to only work on files that can be written 90% if the time, but that would practically rule out anything other than JPEGs.
I need to update the user guide with information about this metadata writer feature.
