just search for the file on google, and put it on program's folder.
As I understand it, the support of old VB6 apps within Windows 7 is as yet unresolved so this and many others will not run. Copying this and other required files will only cause conflicts.
Hmmm, now I'm slightly puzzled! What I wrote above was based upon Googling the problem but having now just installed it on my Win 7 Ultimate x64 system, it works perfectly OK! Not sure what to say now except that may be this was addressed in the most recent updates? Only a guess as I've only just installed and run MP3Gain.

Only a guess as I've only just installed and run MP3Gain.Well, that ruins my theory that perhaps it was the (Home Premium)64bit version of the software that was screwing it up...even though it worked fine on my Vista 64bit. I have the latest mp3gain version...are you using the XP mode to get it to work or are you just running it in native mode?
Ok...Call me an idiot and poke me in the eye! I downloaded mp3gain again but, THIS TIME, I downloaded the full install with VB included and it works like a charm! Thanks to everyone who replied and sorry for my stupidity...:-D
foobar2000 has similar functionality built-in these days, however. You don't get all the options of MP3gain, but the core still exists.
How can I use foobar2000 to apply MP3Gain the way I want it to?
Actually, foobar2000 v1.0 beta has an option to change the "Target MP3 alteration volume level", found in Advanced prefs under Tools > Replaygain Scanner.
The replaygain tag is always against the reference dB. In MP3Ga it shows the gain it needs to apply for the reference you specify. They are not equivalent.
What is important is that both do it right, although you may think it differs:The gain is applied to the file. Then, the tag tells what would a replaygain-aware player need to use to play at it at the reference dB (the standard one, 89).If you want foobar2000 to play the mp3 at the reference you put in mp3gain, you need to change the setting in preferences-playback, with RG info, and increase the slider to the reference you want.Anyway, the preffered solution is do the opposite, reduce the slider for the non-replaygained files.

When I scan with foobar2000, one track has -9,57 dB, but -3,0 dBin MP3Gain. If the target level is the same, shouldn't both show the same values? And if I select a file in foobar2000 and go to Properties > Properties, I can't manually edit the ReplayGain tag.
Is that option really relevant to MP3 only? If this is the case, then there will be volume differences between different file formats, isn't it?In this case maybe it would be more useful to leave the target volume as it is and apply preamp instead (Playback -> Preamp -> With RG info).
