Script updates
Country-specific overrides to search stores other than the main USA one are available here: iTunes Country-Specific Searches, but will not show up in the online updates "new scripts" notification, or be bundled with the installer. They depend on having the main script installed, and only that main script will need to be updated if future changes are required.

This Link does not work anymore.
Are the country specific script files anywhere else on the sourceforge website?

I have a wish for this useful tool: in the search result thumbnail view, could the context menu for every entry be extended by choice Copy source URL to clipboard? Furthermore, if using drag & drop and releasing the image not over a file container, butt text capable container, the source link could be pasted there.

For some reason album artwork downloader does not work correctly. The first time I start it it shows me the start screen but nothing after. I can see it running in task manager for a couple of seconds and then stop. If start it after this it does not even even show the start screen. Same task manager results. I had it running with no problems before, but after a fresh install of Windows because my ssd died. It doesn't want to start anymore. Any help would be appreciated.

Do you get any error reported in the Windows Event Viewer? Or in an errorlog.txt file in the AAD program folder? If not, I can only offer generic advice to try re-installing .net framework 3.5 and hope for the best.

Hi Alex

Thanks for the quick response. There was no errorlog.txt file in the AAD program folder. But I did check windows event viewer and i do get an error when i try to start aad. (edit): I have now tried re-installing .net framework 3.5. It seems to have done nothing.
Here is the event viewer Log :

I can't remember what language it was but, after the windows setup i changed it to English (United States).
(edit) Scrap the top part i checked my ISO and it is in en-us.
(edit2x) Well scrap the above again. Looked at the language as suggested and swapped my native language to windows display and back to English(US). Now it works again. Very weird bug.

Hi Alex. I don't seem to be getting any results from Google Play anymore through the app. I know they've just made a change to the site, I guess it maybe needs an update?

Several people have reported recently an issue where Album Art Downloader XUI crashes out at startup. With assistance from some of those reporting the bug, and some research, I have determined that this is due to a bug in WPF on .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 10, where it will crash out if the input language is anything in this list: MS-LCID that has the non-specific Language ID of 0x1000. I think that's anything that was first introduced in Windows 10.

To try and work around this, I have re-compiled Album Art Downloader using .NET Framework 4.7.2, which I believe doesn't suffer from the same problem. Of course there may be other problems, so if the current version of AAD is working just fine for you then don't feel any pressure to install the recompiled version!

On the other hand, if you would like to try it, especially if you are running Windows 10, and doubly-especially if you are using some unusual input language locale, then I'd appreciate any reports of it working or not working.
