I know numerous people have had this problem -- there are a couple threads dealing with it -- and I've tried everything suggested on this site that has worked for other people. But no matter what I do, I get an error when converting a file to WMA format in Foobar. It looks like it's converting the file just fine, but I get an error message at the end saying, "An error occurred while finalizing the encoding process (Object not found)." However, I can convert files to WMA with dBpoweramp with no problem whatsoever.

I've tried changing the specified encoder to cscript.exe, trying all variations of the command lines suggested. I've also tried the hot fix for WMA from Microsoft. Both suggestions were made in this thread and have worked for other people:

I also tried copying the cscript.exe file into the Foobar folder, as someone suggested. Didn't work.

No matter what happens, I get the error, "An error has occurred while finalizing the encoding process (Object not found)." And no file is created, though an unnamed folder is created if I have Foobar set to create a folder with the artist name.

I am using the latest version of Foobar 1.1.2 on Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit, with User Account Control turned off. My installed components are ABX Comparator, ALAC Decoder, Album List, Audio CD Writer, CD Audio Decoder, Converter, Default User Interface, File Operations, foobar2000 core, freedb Tagger, Masstagger, Monkey's Audio Decoder, ReplayGain Scanner, Standard DSP Array, Standard Input Array, and ZIP/GZIP/RAR Reader.

Anyone have any ideas?

Managed to get dBpowerAmp converting too now!

Encoder File: C:\Program Files\Illustrate\dBpoweramp\CoreConverter.exe

Extension: wma

Parameters: -infile=%s -outfile=%d -convert_to="Windows Media Audio 9" -codec="Windows Media Audio 9.2" -settings="320 kbps, 44 kHz, stereo CBR" -cbr -errorfile="d:\desktop\Error.log"

The thing to remember is that you need to put -cbr or -vbr at the very end of the options, even though you have already defined this in the options earlier. For some bizarre reason, it just doesn't work if you don't.

There we go, the script above chucks out a WMA 9 standard profile at 320 kbs 44.1 kHz 16 bit CBR.
