I almost always launch mp3tag via a Windows context menu option. After installing the new release 3.19, I noticed that launching mp3tag via the context menu opened the prior version, 3.18.
Opening mp3tag from the installed desktop shortcut opens 3.19 as expected.
After installing 3.19, I found that I now I have 2 copies of mp3tag.exe.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mp3tag\Mp3tag.exe

Could it be that you mixed them?

What most likely happened is that you've installed the v3.17 version to a different folder than an existing v3.15 version.
I suggest uninstalling the version listed at the control panel (
backup your settings and let the uninstaller keep them) and then remove what's left at either C:\Program Files and/or C:\Program Files (x86) manually.
After that, reinstall the latest version and all should be good.
Yep, that was it. What a dumb mistake, haha. Sorry for the false alarm!
