I see that the developer hasn't been on it a while but I was hoping I could get some help. I've got the plugin install just for the ability to save the play count as a tag. I had it working perfectly last night following the guide written up by Redwing so that the ASR preset would update the tag as the song played and added to the play count. When I was done, I closed musicbee and shut down my computer like I normally do. Now when I startup musicbee the plugin isn't found where I have it set (in the tools menu) and it isn't there when I right click on a track. When I go to configure it I get this error:
MusicBee v3.4.8033.18564D (Win10.0), 16 Feb 2022 14:53:
System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I don't know what any of this means or how I get it because I haven't messed with anything. So I uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin through musicbee and it showed up again in the tools menu. But now saving the play count doesn't work and update the play count as it goes anymore
The play count that's stored in musicbee's database will go up but the tag I created won't so I have two different play counts now
I don't understand what went wrong because I had it working before. And the error happens every time I close musicbee. What should I do?
Okay, so it seems I got it back working again (though I'm not really sure how by just closing musicbee, deleting the plugin from the plugin folder and simply moving it back before restarting musicbee). But the error still occurs when I close musicbee and restart it, making me have to fumble around again to (hopefully) fix it. I can't just leave it running so how do I avoid this?
