Added date = date added to library. Static.It is not intended to be editable.terry
[..]unfortunately something happened to several of the songs in my library - they had their added (and first played) data reset
is ist possible to customize the path of the database? e.g. user-components\foo_playcount?
What should I do now? Really need some help.

Really need some help.While %rating% and %last_played% fetches that information from the file <your-foobar2000-profile>\index-data\6370B286-BE93-4A7C-AA3B-281FEC61B182 (see Yirkha's post here), $meta(rating)/$meta(last_played) fetches that information from your audio files. If you have saved that information in your files you can import it. As long as you don't change the default setting in File, Preferences, Advanced, Tools, Playback Statistics -> Automatically synchronize file tags with statistics (default = unticked), there is nothing written automatically to your files.Playback Statistics versions prior to v3.0 save their data in a file named PlaybackStatistics.dat (saved in foobar's program folder for foobar versions prior to 1.1) which should be deleted automatically when updating to v3.0.When upgrading to foobar v1.1 you are asked whether your components which don't come with foobar's installer itself should be kept in their current folder or be moved to your user-components folder (each component would have its own sub folder then). I don't know which decision you have made and also I am no expert but you could check whether the PlaybackStatistics.dat has been deleted as it should be.Also you can press shift + [main menu] file -> Browse configuration folder to see where your foo_playcount should be located.I hope that helps a little bit.
In the Index-data folder I now have a file named C653739F-14B3-4EF2-819B-A3E2883230AE ... is this the new Playback Statistics database file? I'm assuming the file name you quote (6370B286-BE93-4A7C-AA3B-281FEC61B182) is generated dynamically and the name varies.
You can install as many foobar versions as you want in portable mode. So may I suggest to install f2k 1.1 in portable mode to another folder, then go to Preferences, Components and choose the install button to install Playback Statistics v2.1.9 (if you don't have it anymore I can upload it). Close foobar and copy your PlaybackStatistics.dat into foobar's root folder. Run foobar again and see whether your rating and last played columns show any content now.Then install foo_playcount v3.0 the same way and watch your installation folder to learn how this index-data file is created and where. Then you should be able to apply your knowledge to your original portable installation.
This is really strange. I can tell you that both %rating% and %last_played% works for me. What happens if you use that patterns as scripts in Columns UI, then close foobar and restart it? Sometimes this is necessary, I don't know why but it happened with other scripts here too. Maybe it has something to do how the columns are updated.I am sorry that I couldn't be of greater help (sorry for English).
Bug report: I have two albums with the same artist and title but different track listings. However, statistics component does not differentiate the two. See:

However, statistics component does not differentiate the two.I've duplicated this bug.Using an album ripped to mp3 VBR V0 with various play_count and rating, I reripped from the original CD into ALAC (using dbpoweramp) and dropped the m4a files into the same folder as the mp3 files.Foobar associated the play counts and ratings with the new m4a files also...

Do the computers run different OS?
