Everything is in that folder by the way and I do have the Foo_lastfm_img.vbs there.

Is this by any chance a fresh install of Windows 11?

Windows 11 does not install IE 11 anymore, whicj means you won't have ActtiveX available which is needed by the Biograophy script.

Have a look at this ...,120978.msg1041386.html#msg1041386

And check the possible fix (which did not work for me) in the attached picture.

Well that certainly explains why it isn't working. Something funky is going on which seems very specific to your setup. There should be no problem executing that on any version of windows going right back to the ancient windows xp and probably earlier. If you have any 3rd party anti virus, try disabling it temporarily?? Other than that, I don't really have any ideas.
General - (fb2k) / Re: Unexpected audio format change - strange output files created

To start you really should upgrade from foobar2000 v2.0. That version has very bad bugs.

I don't know if my head isn't working right, but the error you quote should only happen if you try to encode files with differing specs into a single file - not when you encode tracks into separate files.
But if that error also happens with foobar2000 v2.1.4 or v2.2 preview, I'd like to hear what kind of DSP config you use to trigger it.
OK thanks - I'll update to a later version and let you know what happens.
(In the meantime, FYI I was encoding to separate files).

EDIT: Updated to version 2.1.4 and got exactly the same results as with v2.0. (Note that this is the 32 bit Windows version, if that's relevant).

The transcoding is from FLAC to OGG.
The FLAC source files have ReplayGain tags.
The DSP being used on transcode is:
- ReplayGain: apply album gain, prevent clipping according to album peak.
- SqrSoft Compressor/Limiter: gain 0, threshold -18, ratio 1:inf, attack 3, hold 6, release 300, stereo tie on, lookahead 10, gain 9.
- Don't reset DSP between tracks is ON.
(The reason for all this DSP is because the OGG is for portable use in noisy environments like planes and cars).

If I switch Don't reset DSP between tracks OFF, the conversion happens without error.
Opus / Re: Android music players that support Opus and R128 gain
Last post by ChristianK -
In foobar2000 v1.4, a similar feature to "alter file content" was introduced for Opus files. However, it does not alter the entire audio stream, it alters Opus header gain value

Right. Also should be a pretty nice workaround.
I thought this was changing the audio but for opus that is not the case.
However, I prefer not to use Foobar if possible because it is Windows-ish only (but rsgain could also do this), and using the header gain for this somehow feels a bit dirty.
But it would be spec compliant. Hmm.
