Now it's very well known that HEK+ Is Extremely outdated. I used to run it with Windows XP SP 3 compatibility mode, But I'm on Windows 10 now, And this does not work anymore, it just crashes immediately. (hekplus.exe has stopped working) I also run it as admin. Is there any new method of doing this? I can't extract Tags anymore without HEK+ (Is there any newer version, or different program entirely I can extract tags with? Specifically .sound tags.

Thanks in advance! ~Blaze

Use Moses' refinery. It's a way better tag extractor that is actively maintained. You can get it from the MEK, it requires python 3.x though. If you want a version that doesn't require python you can get it from the MEKE (essentials).

You also have to select "disable desktop composition"

But HEK+ is inferior in every way to Refinery.
