Hello dear community,

I'm new, probably grant me some dumbness.

I'm trying to convert my FLAC collection, including 24/96 material to alac for use on my iPod. For this i use the refalac encoder with following settings:
Encoder:C:\Encoder\qaac\refalac.exe
Extension: m4a
Parameters: --silent --no-optimize --ignorelength - -o %d
max BSP: 24
Lossless/Hybrid

I snatched that from other posts, it was the only configuration that allowed me to run it. Others, left me with the output "please re-check paramters".
I included a libFlac.dll from my flac-encoder in the qaac folder. C++ environment is installed and i also copied the full folder, so the refalac .dlls are included as well. I'm running win7 x64 with the x86 refalac. (shouldn't be any problem afaik).

Now it does endoce new files, but without the tags. Foobar is unable to tag them ("usupported/corrupt file") and doesn't even show bitrates etc, but itunes plays them fine, shows the info, but no tags.

This the encoder output:
CODE
1 out of 1 tracks converted with major problems.

Source: "E:\Musikbackups\Flac\Anteater - 2012 EP\01 Above Than Beside Me.flac"
  An error occurred while finalizing the encoding process (Unsupported format or corrupted file) : "F:\All Music\My iPod\Anteater - 2012 EP\01 Above Than Beside Me.m4a"
  Conversion failed: Unsupported format or corrupted file


And this is the Console log:
CODE
Opening track for playback: "E:\Musikbackups\Flac\Anteater - 2012 EP\01 Above Than Beside Me.flac"
CLI encoder: C:\Encoder\qaac\refalac.exe

Encoder process still running, waiting...
Encoder process terminated cleanly.

Thanks for help,
Greetings, Lumpf

I knew that old version of refalac (from qaac_1.46.zip) works. Then I tried to encode a wav file with the new refalac and it failed immediately:

CODE
ERROR: ALAC: input format is not supported
