The FLAC album seems to be missing the 'AlbumArtist' tag, it is required for albums where there are different artists for songs.

As you are also using Mp3tag, this is likely the same problem that lanamelach had here. It is caused by the fact that Mp3tag uses a different field for Album Artist in FLAC files than WMP Tag Plus. I posted a solution here, hopefully it will work for you as well.
For me, the folder.jpg is not displayed for the now playing track (screenshot). May there be something I'm doing wrong?

May there be something I'm doing wrong?I think that this is because WMP Tag Plus doesn't support embedded album art yet. Once this support has been added, WMP should show album art for the now playing track too. I can't really tell why it is working for teohhanhui, perhaps he is using WMP 11?
That doesn't really sound like it could be caused by WMP Tag Plus. Does this still happen after uninstalling my plug-in? Maybe your WMP library somehow got corrupted and needs to be rebuild? (be aware that rebuilding the library will make you lose all play counts, and possibly ratings too)
Rebuilding the library will cause WMP to read the metadata too, but it's a bit overkill. Removing the files from library and then re-adding them should work equally well.
I think that both of your problems were caused by the fact that you didn't re-add the FLAC and AAC files to the library after installing WMP Tag Plus. This is required for files that are already in the library, to make WMP read the metadata again.
You misunderstood me in one point. The fact is that when I installed WMPTSE and tried to add my old music in FLAC and AAC I failed. So there were no FLAC music in my WMP library (as I could it see). Then I uninstalled WMPTSE and installed WMP Tag Plus. I tried to add my old FLAC music but failed again. I suppose that WMPTSE in fact indexed the files but with some errors. So these files won't displayed at the WMP window. Even after I installed WMP Tag Plus. And how can I delete files that are not displayed?
Are there any plans for x64 version? I don't like converting all flac to 320kbps mp3. I know i can use 32 bit version of WMP on x64 win7, but i can't use 32bit verison of wmc
So is there any fancy way to do the following:- Foreach TrackA/ Read all metadata from WMP Metadata library *but* its durationB/ Read the duration with WMP Tag PlusC/ Mix both

Before re-adding the files, check if the XML file created by Metadata Backup contains all your metadata, just in case.
Hmm... That key doesn't exist on my computer. I even did a search for the Guid and nothing came up. None of the keys in that section have a FriendlyName that looks anything like WMP Tag Plus either. Anyways, I'm trying out WMP Plus right now. I'll post again if that doesn't work. Thanks!
