Analysis Problem

I have just found beatunes online and downloaded the trial version.
I have just started the "analyse all songs" option to try and see the BPM of each song, but all of my songs are coming up with an error code of "could not find any tags for........."
Can you please explain what this means and how can I rectify it.
I created my iTunes library mostly by imputing from an external CD drive.
Don't know if that has anything to do with this error, please advise, thanks.

    Hey Phil,

    what you are seeing has nothing to do with BPM estimation. Most likely you have checked the "Import tags from Last.FM"-box and beaTunes was unable to find any tags on Last.FM for some of your tracks, potentially, because nobody has tagged those tracks.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Hendrik
    "import tags" was not checked but thanks anyway.
    It was suggested elsewhere, that I should reload iTunes from the Apple site and not from Microsoft. Apparently there is a .com file? which doesn't always load from the Microsoft version.
    Tried it and then ran Beatunes "analyse all songs" again and I now have the BPM for 95% of the songs in my library.

    Ah.. yes. The iTunes version directly from Apple should be used as COM automation tends not to work in the Microsoft store version.

    Good you found that!
