Version 2.71
There is a new feature on the Help Menu, Manage Shortcuts. Selecting this will launch an app that will create a File Explorer shortcut, Open with MetaX. You will need to allow this app to run as admin for it to work. Please let me know if you find any issues with it.

There are major changes to allow tagging larger numbers of files. To enable this, you must enable the /VM switch. Then after an entry is tagged, it is removed from the write queue. I have been able to tag over 300 (untagged) files at once using this. Note, trying to open a large number of tagged (with cover art) files will still run MetaX out of virtual memory, but it will provide a message to that affect and stop trying to open files.
