PN 4.0.336 on Win10 creates "Path is not of a legal form" error messages. When I close the error message, it pops up again. When I let it open, PN crashes after about 300 files processed with the following error:

MIK also provides a message "An error occured opening Platinum Notes", what might be already sent to you.

When I now start PN again out of MIK, PN processes the same files and crashes again after 300 processed files. So, the only workaround at the moment is, to sort the files in MIK by clipping or volume errors, select a couple hundreds of them and drop them into PN. This is very time-consuming and not acceptable.

It already took me 4 days (!) to let MIK analyze one third of my collection (about 30k files). MIK Win version is so unstable and error-prone for crashes. I was only able to analyse my 30k tracks by limiting the amount of files to max 1000-2000 files at once. And I did not touch the MIK UI during the analyse process. If you do (e.g. try to check the status and progress of the analyze process), you take the risk that MIK will stop working without any error message. The process has just frozen. You recognize it, because MIK consumes no CPU resources.

Another mess is that you can't import the cue points from MIK into Rekordbox without a workaround, which I have no time for it to test it. That is, buy another MacOS-based tool "Rekord Buddy", install a virtual MacOS system on VMware and try your luck there. Are you serious?

You software modules tend to provide great features but for me those win versions have only beta status. If a user just have a couple of files per day or week to analyze/convert then it might be acceptable. But it is not in cases when you have initially a larger amount of music files to check.

BTW, other software I'm using for long time to maintain my library is MediaMonkey, mp3tag, Spek and Fakin'the Funk. I'm still a Rekordbox newbie but managed to get the key, energy and BPM information into it.

I thought MIK and PN would ease my workflow, but it is very disappointing based on my experience so far.

I am on a fresh install of Windows 10 (64bits). And i am experiencing simular problems. PN crashing without a reason. The only thing I noticed is when i use a folder with no subfolders and 1000+ MP3 files, most of the time this goes ok. But as soon there are subfolders in the main folder PN crashes without any message. It just stops.
