Is Cuetools 2.1.7 working? not all decoders/encoders showing.

For some reason the sticky thread is locked, that's why I'm posting here.

Just downloaded Cuetools 2.1.7, extracted to a new directory and deleted the user_profiles_enabled file. When I run Cuetools and go to the Formats options, the decoder dropdown menu is blank and the only encoder available is flake. When I tried to convert a single file flac to multiple tracks, I got and error saying that the encoder exited with code 1. Is this expected?

Everything works fine with 2.1.6.

This new forum area is where you are supposed to post.
See MOVED: CUETools versions 1.9.5 through 2.1.5 (current) and
also Read First: a few posting guidelines.

CUETools 2.1.7 is in early development and requires new prerequisites, http://cue.tools/wiki/CUETools_Download#Version_2.1.7_Prerequisites. Make sure you have them installed.

Gregory will post a new sticky announcement for 2.1.7 in a week or so.

interresting. on my current wine prefix, without installing any prerequisite, all flac variants are avaiable (+libflac & cuetools decoder) but they all stop with an error except for cuetools encoder - which is fine for me.

That should probably be the last post of the sticky thread then.

What settings did you use? Encode (default), Mode (Tracks), Audio Output (Lossless, flac, flake)
What output format? Flac
Which encoder did you try? Flake
What were the encoder settings? -%M - -o %O -p %P
What did you expect to happen? For the single wav to be converted to multiple flac files
What happened instead? Encoder exited with error 1

Let me know if you need more info.

PS: I did install VC 2015 just to make sure, and the problem continued.

That should probably be the last post of the sticky thread then.
I'll add a shorter version as a last post.

When I run Cuetools and go to the Formats options, the decoder dropdown menu is blank and the only encoder available is flake.
I can duplicate the formats page you're seeing by blocking access to the plugins folder.
Could the new directory you extracted the files to require elevated permissions?
Could you try extracting to a different location and double-check that you extracted everything?

As I hinted above, Gregory should be back in about a week or so.

I checked the permissions and everything was ok. The folder is on a non-system drive even. I tried extracting it to a different folder on another drive and the result is the same. Even running CUETools as administrator doesn't change anything.

OK, I found the same problem as yours on another PC. Apparently there was a security block on the zip file (and added to the extracted contents). After right-clicking the zip file, selecting Properties, unblocking the file (see pic), and extracting the contents again, CUETools 2.1.7 was able to access the decoders/encoders in the plugins folder.






EDIT: I've reworded my reply for clarification. I expect this will come up again.

Yes, that fixed it korth, thank you.

What does that "feature" do? I've never seen in any other file before. Was it blocking some files from being extracted?

On the system I mentioned above,[1] the downloaded zip file was flagged with the stream “:Zone.Identifier:$DATA”. It didn't prevent extraction but I also found the stream “:Zone.Identifier:$DATA” on all of the extracted files. Apparently that triggered a security policy to sandbox (or partially sandbox) CUETools.exe when executed (CUERipper.exe was also prevented from accessing the plugins folder). I still have some reading to do.

This explains a few ways to turn it off. I used the AlternateStreamView program mentioned in the article to check the zips and files.
https://appuals.com/fix-this-file-came-from-another-computer-and-might-be-blocked/



On two other systems I tested, the downloaded zip file was also flagged with the stream “:Zone.Identifier:$DATA” but all the files extracted clean (no stream) and no issues with CUETools.exe.
