Windows 7: Meta Browser Renaming Movies Problems!!

Meta Browser Renaming Movies Problems!!

Can anyone help me out? I'm running windows 7 pro RTM and installed the latest Media Browser and Meta Browser. I'm having problems with Meta Browser not renaming movie folder/file.

I added a test folder to the "General" tab in meta browser and have the renaming folder and file options selected in the options. when I put a folder containing a movie in that test folder (i.e. Clockwork Orange\Clockwork Orange blah.avi). meta data properly updates the folder with folder.jpg, background.jpg, movie info, etc. but is not renaming the folder or file. it works fine for the TV dropbox i setup but not movies.

What am I missing?

Hi sparkyr, welcome to the forums.

You need to right-click 'Meta<browser/>' then select 'Run as administrator'. I've just tested it normally with no luck then as administrator and it worked fine.

Hope it helps :)

thanks for your reply. so, i have checked the option for meta browser to run on startup. will this run as administrator or do i need to do something else so that it works when i have it running on startup?

thank you for your help

You can run apps at startup with administrator privliges :)

You would need to use Windows Task Manager to run Media<browser/> as an administrator
