I've made a new version which now will function properly under seven (and probably vista) concerning the volume control and the fadeout.
I've also compiled it specifically for 32 bit mode. The internets lead me to believe that will make it run on 64bit windows as intended (see microsoft jet issue).

I'm still tweaking some minor things and will upload the latest version here soon.

Regarding the chip type display, that's on my to-do list. I think that information is stored in the sid header of the tune aswell.

Thanks for the great feedback!

i just wanted to add, i love your tool
since i am not rebooting my machine too often, i leave your tool always running and that's just great.
maybe you can also show in a future version which sid chip the song was made on (as far as that info is available in the hvsc)
good work! keep it up!

I see. In that case i could make a option to save playlists in a different format (CSV or XML possibly) in the next version.

@Elkmoose : did you install the tool via the setup or just run the executable ? the playlists are saved in .MDB format, so you are going to need the Microsoft Jet Engine.
I included all dependancies in the package. If it wont work, maybe this helps. If it indeed is a 64bit specific error, then i cant do much about it since i dont have any 64bit systems to test it on.

The second error (as mentioned in the production notes here on csdb) is because of the way i'm doing the volume control, wich only works on XP.

I'm looking into a method that works on Vista and Seven.

I appreciate the report though.

this error occures when you want to save a playlist on a 64bit platform, there are workarounds all over the net, which need to be compiled into the code.

if you want to change volume with the tool, seems also to be a 32bit/64bit error...

Will consider that in a future update. Meanwhile, you can select a playlist to be auto loaded at startup in the settings screen.

The most useful sid management tool out there! Thank you Joe!

[Edit: First and most obvious flaw: Make it remember your last open playlists. After I close the app and open it again it should have the last playlist open automagically.]

Did anyone actually get this to work? has there been any casualties?
