Taglib Property Handler: http://sourceforge.net/projects/taglibhandler/

This is the first public release with aif/m4a/etc. enabled, it is not widely tested.
Please report any problems, no matter how small.

-- Install instructions (Vista only):

1) Run tlhsetup2.exe. It needs Administrator access, and will prompt for it if you have UAC enabled.

   - It is 64-bit Windows aware.

-- Manual install instructions:

1) Register the 32-bit TagLibHandler.dll (from this directory), ie.

    > regsvr32 TagLibHandler.dll

     This will give an illogical error message if not run with sufficient permissions. Possibly:
      >  The module "TagLibHandler.dll" was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005.

1a) If you are using a 64-bit OS, also register the x64 version of the component.

     It's worth having both installed as frequently you'll use x32 apps without realising.

2) Inform the property system that you'd like the handler to be used. This involves:

  a) Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PropertySystem\PropertyHandlers
  b) Create (or find) a Key (folder) with the name of the file extension you wish to use.
  c) Edit it's (Default) such that the value is: {66AC53F1-EB5D-4af9-861E-E3AE9C07EF14}

  ie. create a Key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PropertySystem\PropertyHandlers\.ogg
    and set it's (Default) value to {66AC53F1-EB5D-4af9-861E-E3AE9C07EF14}.

3) It's safe to replace the system associations, such as .mp3, although, at this stage, you will lose functionality by doing so.

   You may want to back-up any data you overwrite.


-- Lost functionality by using Taglib Handler instead of the Windows Default.

   You will lose: The ability to write to tags, and the ability to view some tags.
   You will gain: The ability to read a whole new set of tags, including id3v2.4 tags with utf-8.

-- Development environment:
     - Vista SP2.
     - VS2008 SP1.
     - Header-only libraries from Boost 1.40.
     - loki-0.1.7.7
     - http://wtl.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/wtl/trunk/wtl@404
     - taglib "branch": 0e2057cc9d1918d893a7dacfdf927dd9253b12c1, off 
          svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/kdesupport/taglibb@1035209 (after 1.6 release)
