Several people reported this problem in the comments to my blog post For instance, a visitor who identified himself as Brendan wrote:

Love your script, real time saver.
But since reinstalling Windows (from Windows 8 to Windows 8, so nothing new there, just a reinstall) it’s converting 1 file each time I run it.
The temp.meta files that are created contain the correct Artist, Album, track nr. etc.
The files I’m trying to add of course also contain this information
Do you have any idea what causes this?

I’m running Windows 8 and I use your script as per the instructions on this blog.

But I could not reproduce that issue until another reader, dave granic, provided his insight:

The problem Brendan is having is the same one I am having with Permission Denied when the script tries to execute


I modified the script to show the TempWAVPath and I have set permissions on the folder to allow EVERYONE full control, could the file be open?

Deleting intermediate track
Deleting temporary WAV file C:\temp\AddFLACs-2013-05-19-00-08-11\temp.wav
C:\downloads\install\AddFLACs-0.91\AddFLACs.js(275, 13) Microsoft JScript runtime error: Permission denied

and followed up with a solution:

fixed the issue… changed line 276 of js file to

fso.DeleteFile(tempWAVPath, true)

Indeed, flac.exe preserves the readonly attribute and there seems to be no way to alter this behavior.
