I purchased Beatunes 5 and have V5.0.2 installed.
I analyzed a playlist and want to export it as m3u to load in traktor, and I want the track positions to be the same as in the beatunes playlist.
When I hit Yes to start the process it shows the following error message. The playlist still gets created, but when I load it into traktor, the songs are there, but they aren't in the order they were in beatunes.

    I'm running Windows 10 pro 64bit (beatunes is 64 bit as well).
    Not using itunes either.

    The error might indicate a character encoding issue. I.e. umlauts or other fancy characters in the file names.

    Regarding the order: beaTunes exports in natural order, i.e. not the sort order.

    Sort order is what you get when you click on a column header.
    Natural order what you get when you click on the empty column header.

    So if I wanted to export the playlist with it sorted by key, how would I go
    about that?

    You'd have to first change the natural order of the playlist. You can do so by selecting a start song, right-click, then "Reorder Playlist by...", select "Property", then "Key".

    See http://blog.beatunes.com/2017/06/re-ordering-playlists-by-property....

    Thank you! I haven't done that, I'll give it a shot and see if I do it
    right.

    I tried to do it by changing the natural order by sorting it by right
    clicking a song and choosing property>key and it gives me the same thing, I
    also made sure I clicked on the number column.

    I have tracks with Japanese Kanji characters, is that what might be causing
    it?

    That's weird.
    No it should not depend on your Japanese characters.

    I'm getting the same error even after reinstalling and following the
    instructions you gave.
