you can run beaTunes 3 with or without iTunes. When you run it
without, it simply operates on folders of music instead the iTunes
library. To create a new library, use the General Preferences tab
in the beaTunes preferences.
That aside, I doubt that you are doing anything wrong.
Unfortunately, the log you sent only shows part of the picture. Can
you please zip the entire logs folder and send it to me? That way I
get to see more of what has been going on.
I think I must be running beatunes with itunes because if I ONLY load beatunes then itunes is loaded BEFORE beatunes exits its splashscreen. Beatunes then says "synchronising with music library" (this takes some time - possibly because I have 60,000+ tunes?) It then asks if I want to analyse new songs (I normally say yes) and then to inspect - which again I say yes to.

thanks for the zip file - unfortunately it does not contain the
entire logs folder. To zip the entire folder,
just navigate to it (not into it) with Explorer,
right-click on the folder name and select "Send To", then
"Compressed Folder". That will create a zipped version of the logs

I can't find any problem in the logs.
One condition under which this issue can come back is, when you
modify the Artist or Album name or any of the Release Years of the
album in question. Then beaTunes assumes it's a different album and
presents the issue again.
I think it must be the release years. It seems to be "greatest hits" etc where there are (correctly) different track years. But what I am doing is not modifying the years, but telling it to ignore this album?

If I was you, I'd mark that album as a compilation and then it
would be ignored by that inspection anyway.
If you'd like me to dig deeper, please give me a concrete
example (Artist, Album, Years) and send me the file
industries\beaTunes\ignoredIssues.xml. If you're really
interested, you can actually open that file yourself with Notepad
or any other simple editor and look for
