Much better. 

For what it's worth, this version did not crash on installation for me, while betas 3 and 4 crashed at the end of installation.

Fair enough.  I'd just note that the only crashes I can recall (at least several months) have been installing betas 3 and 4, and even then the crashes didn't interfere with the install so far as I could tell. Hard to troubleshoot something that's so rare.  I suppose the issue with problematic components is that problems can be erratic.

thanks

Do you auto-submit your crash reports? I see only one entry matching your current IP, submitted 3 days ago. It looks like a problem with iTunes libraries invoked by foo_dop. If you have other reports that you wish me to look at but did not auto-submit them, feel free to zip them up and post them in the uploads forum.

Reproduced the issue with iPod manager/Apple libraries. It doesn't seem to get triggered on 64-bit OSes, but it's some kind of race condition I think. Anyway, I'm looking into a fix or workaround..

I've put up version 0.6.9.4 with a workaround.

It would be good if you could verify the problem is fixed: if you close foobar2000 and run "foobar2000 /quiet" several times before updating iPod manager, it should crash on some of the runs, but that should stop after updating to 0.6.9.4.

foobar2000 /quiet does not crash on repeated tries.  I run foobar at least once a day and I can't remember the last time it crashed, other than at the end of the installation of beta 3 and beta 4.  At this point I'd think the problem is more random fluctuations in the force than anything reproducible.

As suggested by shakey_snake and the troubleshooter, I had removed comserver2.

Anything else I should check or info I should provide?

I can post the earlier crash log, if you or Peter think it would be helpful.  As Peter noticed, I submitted for beta 4 but not 3.

Not unreproducible if it happened twice on installation? The installer silently launches foobar2000 in a similar way, but perhaps the preceding installation operations had an influence in your case. The problem is just ill-written Apple libraries, in this case calling two functions with a particular short time interval in-between them results in this nonsense. It should be fixed anyway.
