Versions 1.5 and 1.4: Immediate Crash on Launch

Oct 29, 2016 at 1:19 PM

I was overjoyed to read the description of this program, as it would do exactly what I am looking for. Specifically, I wish to modify file metadata for matroska files, as the data in the container is not entirely exposed by the relevant Windows property handler.

Sadly, I cannot seem to make the File Metadata program (x64 or x86) work on Windows 10 Pro x64. I get an immediate program crash. Fiddling with the compatibility settings has not helped. Version 1.4 yields the same result.

I certainly hope there is a solution. I've found the way to expose several extra metadata fields in the Details pane of Explorer, but they all read blank (eg Subtitle, Language, Comments). Even if I create similar XML structures following Matroska guidelines, no deal. I imagine the reason is that the property handler simply does not read and provide the data. It would be wonderful to be able to populate these fields with the data.

Thanks in advance,

Perhaps this has to do with recent changes in Win10 Anniversary Edition?

Hi William

This is likely to be a problem with the .Net Framework installation on your system, as it looks as though program loading is failing in WPF internals during preparation of the main form.

A first step might be to try the Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool at

Let me know if applying this improves things, or doesn’t.
