ok, i'll give you guys all the info i have, which isn't really much at all...
i simply started mp3tag one day and got this error:
i made no changes to the OS prior to getting the error, so i figured upgrading from 2.37a to 2.38 might fix it, but nope... it's still happening. even a full uninstall/reinstall doesn't work.
also, the error log it tells me to check is completely empty and is 0kb in size... so nothing is being written to it at all.
strangely, the program is still working nicely on my other machines.
