I just bought this software and am still learning it, but trying to remove duplicates is almost as painful as itunes.
Why isn't there a filter like keep mp3, or select one file as a default?

I have to go through all the duplicates and select the one file one by one?
It's more than a bit cumbersome.

A filter or even if it preselected one file to keep, or "do this for the rest" of the issues, would be helpful and a huge timesaver.

    Did you know that you can select multiple issue at once and then only suitable possible solutions for all selected issues are shown?

    Hey Dan,

    darn. There seem to be quite a few hiccups. :-/

    Regarding COM (com4j) errors: Those are typically problems that occur when beaTunes attempts to communicate with iTunes. In most cases they can be fixed by re-installing iTunes directly from Apple (via https://www.apple.com/itunes/) and not using the Microsoft app store. Then restart your computer to complete the iTunes installation (i.e. the COM components).

    Regarding the database repair failure: Not sure why the repair was triggered - perhaps, because there was an unclean shutdown. It seems that beaTunes was not allowed to create a database backup. Any chance another instance of beaTunes was somehow still running in the background? In any case, this should be "fixed" by restarting your computer.

    Hope this helps,

    -hendrik
