    I am having problems with Handbrake (It all seemed to happen after the "Patch Tuesday" on 03/12/2013) I can load the program but as soon as I add a project to the queue it crashes with an error
    I have tried reinstalling the program and compatibility mode does not work either. Is anyone else having problems with Handbrake since the last "Patch Tuesday"?
    I ram memtest and all of my hardware tests out good.
    I am stumped at what to do here any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Here is the error I am getting

    OS is Windows 7 Home Premium SP1

    Here is all of the text in the first box

    Code:
    An Unknown Error has occured.

    It's a stack trace of an unhandled exception from the Handbrake GUI. The reason is that a string parsing failed -- it expected to be able to convert some string to a floating point number, but the value it tried converting failed. Perhaps you entered some non-numeric value in a field that was expecting a number?

    Handbrake has nothing to do with Patch Tuesday.

    OK the problem was apparently caused by the file name of one of my files that I was trying to encode
    I changed the name and the file and all of my other encodes finally finished
    The name of the file was "Timmy's 2-D House Of Horror" (The Fairly OddParents Rule!) I don't understand how that could cause a problem

    I'm unsure why the changing the filename would've been the difference -- it doesn't seem logical that it was run through "double.Parse()". Were there any other differences that you recall?

    The bigger picture: I'm glad it's all working for you now.

    No everything else was the same I guess just the name screwed it up somehow
