Release Notes

The only change in this release is a fix for the issue "Metadata export does not handle Cyrillic or other non-Latin character sets correctly".

The format of exported XML changes from ANSI to 16-bit Unicode. However, XML files in the older format can still be imported.

There are no changes to property editing in Windows Explorer, which already handled non-Latin characters correctly.

To migrate from a previous version, uninstall File Metadata, and install Release 1.1. All file association settings will be preserved.

Reviews for this release

This solves a problem for me! When I was using XP, I used the "Comments" field on hundreds of files to keep track of information about the file. When I moved to Win7, access to all of that info was lost. The utility not only allowed me to regain access to that info, it also has a great command-line option that allows me to retrieve or add this info using XML. This is above and beyond what I was able to do previously from Explorer in XP and I can see it will be really useful - now I can write a programmatic way to add my comments. THANKS!!

This it what I was looking for. Excellent for describing files and displaing description in Windows Explorer. Very good project!

I just joined. A newbie. This release has only display functionality. Any input to any fields delivers an error that is unknown. I'm running vista 64. I'd post the error code but forgot to write it on paper before I had to restore my system due to total system stability after installing this software.

This is typically caused by Explorer caching, as discussed here:

Works as described. Opens up a consistent way to store metadata.
