I had the same problem. Sometimes the latest is NOT the greatest - new versions of code introduce new bugs.

TLH 2.7.0.172 does not suffer from this issue, 24-bit flac files work as expected in every case. I suspect the newest version of flac.exe is responsible.

There's indeed an issue with the latest flac.exe - details and workaround see this post.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

The below fix also addresses the issue in this thread.

I to have the latest version of TLH: 2.8.4 (Build 185) and suffered from the same issue with 24bit files. TLH also had issues verifying 16/48 ffp's.

I also have FlacFrontend installed on my windows 10 laptop. If you do not have it, you can download/install it from here - http://flacfrontend.sourceforge.net/

1. Renamed flac.exe in traders little helper to flac.tlh located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Trader's Little Helper\CmdlineApps
2. Copied flac.exe from flac frontend (C:\Program Files (x86)\FLAC Frontend\tools)
3. Open TLH and test your 24bit and 16/48 ffp's and they should have no issues verifying now
4. From a command prompt you can also check both versions of flac in the traders little helper directory if renamed that according to step 1 above.

TLH version:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Trader's Little Helper\CmdlineApps>flac.tlh -v
flac 1.3.3

flac frontend version:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Trader's Little Helper\CmdlineApps>flac.exe -v
flac 1.3.0

flac frontend version:

flac 1.3.0
Do _not_ use the flac.exe v1.3.0 - use v1.3.2 as described above in my post!!!

Re: Trader's Little Helper

### Updated ###

The below fix addresses the recent issue in this thread.

I to have the latest version of TLH: 2.8.4 (Build 185) and suffered from the same issue with 24bit files. TLH also had issues verifying 16/48 ffp's.

1. Download 1.3.2 flac from https://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/xiph/releases/flac/ (https://xiph.org/flac/download.html)
2. Rename flac.exe in traders little helper to flac.tlh located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Trader's Little Helper\CmdlineApps
3. Copy the flac.exe you downloaded in step one to C:\Program Files (x86)\Trader's Little Helper\CmdlineApps
4. Open TLH and test your 24bit and 16/48 ffp's and they should have no issues verifying now
5. From a command prompt you can also check both versions of flac in the traders little helper directory if renamed that according to step 1 above.

Broken version:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Trader's Little Helper\CmdlineApps>flac.tlh -v
flac 1.3.3

Good version:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Trader's Little Helper\CmdlineApps>flac.exe -v
flac 1.3.2

Re: Trader's Little Helper

FYI, FLAC 1.3.4 also fails, so still stick with 1.3.2.
