I've recently built a new PC with Win7 64-bit. Have installed foobar2000 V1.0b3. I'd like to be able to convert FLAC files to WMA format. Can someone confirm/correct the steps to accomplish this listed below?

1. Find Windows Media Encoder 9: is this the latest version of the encoder?

2. Should I install the 32-bit or 64-bit version of the encoder?

3. I understand about configuring the commandline encoder in fb2k as I've had this working on an older 32-bit WinXP machine, but there appears to be some wrinkle about 32-bit vs. 64-bit that means my old commandline won't work. Can someone explain which files need to be copied to the fb2k folder and how the commandline should then be structured?

4. Do tags convert over properly?

Thanks.

@grommet: Thanks for the suggestion but I've been using fb2k forever and would like to stick with it for now.

I installed the 64-bit version of Windows Media Encoder 9. Copied the cscript.exe file from \windows\system32 to foobar directory. Used the following settings:

Encoder: C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\cscript.exe
File extension: wma
Parameters: "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Components\Encoder\WMCmd.vbs" //NoLogo -silent -input %s -output %d -profile a128

All seems to work very well.
