I use MP3Gain
along with its GUI to add replaygain
information to my mp3 collection. Recently a peculiar bug has emerged that I really can't fathom...
When I launch MP3GainGUI the Windows installer appears (with the title Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007) and starts trying to install a component.
This then tells me that the network component cant be found, and prompts me to search for the file 'EnterpriseWW.msi'
If I cancel the dialog it simply reappears.
If I cancel the dialog 6 or 7 times in a row MP3GainGUI opens and functions correctly.It didn't do this last week!! What on earth is going on!!
I have googled briefly and discovered that other people have experienced similar issues, but none seem to have found a solution. Each case seems to be looking to configure / install some random piece of software which is entirely unconnected with MP3Gain (not always Office, sometimes Adobe products or plugins).
I have reinstalled MP3Gain several times, using both the zip file and installer from the website - with no effect.
Some 'solutions' I've read are the usual guff... reinstall windows - reinstall office - use Linux! but none seems to get to the root of the problem.So far as I can see MP3Gain is no longer updated - is there an equivalent active piece of freeware?
