Just to be sure, did you happen to apply a MusicBee update patch AFTER successfully updating the original version to LARGEADDRESSAWARE?  The process needs to be re-run every time the exe is updated.

I just applied the  LARGEADDRESSAWARE patch as per instructions, and I still have the same problem.
