I tried to start beaTunes 5.1.12 (the first time inquire a while) on my new M1 MacBook Pro and got the Fatal Error, "A fatal error occurred during initialization" with instructions to go to this site.

Current OS: MacOS Monterey 12.0.1

    Note that once I close the "Fatal Error" dialog, beaTunes is not running. I.e. I have no way to access any configuration or menus in beaTunes.

    Hey Lawrence,

    please update beaTunes to the current version (5.2.24) from https://www.beatunes.com/beatunes-download.html and try again. The update is free.
