is there anyway of adjusting the size of the thumbnails
Quote from: xbon on 05 May, 2017, 03:37:42 AMis there anyway of adjusting the size of the thumbnailsYes, in the bottom right corner of the thumbnail there is a little triangular gripper. Drag that to make the thumbnail bigger or smaller.
I just want to know why the art does not save to the music file exactly but instead saves as a picture.
Turns out the issue was that the user.config file/folder in AppData had been somehow corrupted. After deleting that folder (which required Unlocker) and reinstalling, everything's okay. I dunno if this happening at the same time as a Windows update was a coincidence or not.
I can't identify the "user.config file/folder in AppData". (I know where AppData is and what it is, but I can't find any file or folder named user.config or anything related to AAD there.)
There should be a %localappdata%\AlbumArtDownloader folder which you can delete. That will reset all AAD settings, and will be recreated when you next run AAD.
AlbumArtDownloader will create an error log if it can, as errorlog.txt in the program folder, or %temp%\AAD_errorlog.txt if that fails. It looks to me like it's not even able to do that, that something is preventing it from running at all. Windows will log errors in the "Event Viewer" (look under Custom Views/Administritive Events for any error with the source ".NET Runtime"). It's unlikely that this information will prove helpful, though.Uninstalling and re-installing the .net framework has been known to resolve this sort of issue in the past, but I'm not sure if that's possible under Windows 10.
Might you be able to identify a better root cause if I provide you that event viewer error? If you are willing to take a look, obviously!
