CUETools: Error, path is not of a legal form?

I updated to Windows 10 and ever since CUEtools has given me the error msg Path is not of a legal form. What's this? Why's this?

Your details are a bit vague.

Note: I haven't been able to upgrade to Windows 10 yet (getting update failure) so I haven't been able to test CUETools on it but for someone else to help you I'd think they'd need more information than you're offering.

Win 10 pro works nicely with CUEtools 2.16 here.
OT: good old frontah crashes at replaygain, 88.2kHz as card defaukt is distorted with th X-Fi and font smoothing is ugly without changing fonts.

With 24bit music you can listen to silence much louder!

@korth: you could try these two links:

https://support2.microsoft.com/en-us/gp/win...te-issues/en-us
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows...7#1TC=windows-7

First one is an automatic fixer for windows update. That didn't fix it for me but the second one did it. Concretely, I had the BITS service in manual mode, so it wasn't started.

Then, you can try to restart the installation:

I had one more problem during installation. When it reboots and starts the installation, after the step of copying the files, it is supposed to reboot. It didn't reboot for me, so I had to manually reboot it. After that, it all went fine, aside of the problems with synaptic touchpad (scrolling doesn't work).  Others report that they have problems with video and audio drivers, but I'm fine on that regard.

Still OT but audio related. I mentioned frontah and it still works comfortable. I have several functions scripted i got used to over the years.
Running programs in compatibility mode to my knowledge forbids drag&drop and for this frontend it is a killer.
Today i learned "Windows 7 compatibility" in Win 10 still allows d&d while XP mode does not. Luckily frontah works now like i am used to.
Hope someone on some day will find this info usefull.

No problems so far with CUETools on Win10 Pro here (only a few test runs performed).
I suspect the OP's problem is similar to [a href='index.php?showtopic=107574']this topic[/a] but this is just a guess.

I know this is an old thread but its the first one that shows in a Google search for this particular issue.  I've had exactly the same on Windows 10 and so far haven't found any fix, this happens why trying to open a cue file and associated flac - for now i've had to revert to using cuetools on another older pc with win7 and there's no issues.

The OP didn't post enough information and didn't offer anything more when told the details were vague.
