I'd like to get rid of the pop-up message when starting foobar2000 after crash. Here are the steps to reproduce the message:

  1. start foobar2000
  2. start Task Manager, find foobar2000 process and end the process
  3. start foobar2000 again

Result: it shows the message with text "foobar2000 was terminated abnormally last time."

What I want is for the program to start normally, without this message. (The reason being when I restart Windows, it evidently cannot stop the programs in a clean way. So this message means nothing substantial but an annoyance and a wasted click for me.)

My environment: Windows 7, foobar2000 1.1.10 (but been seeing that message since at least 1.1.8).

Thanks for your help.

Have you report this problem to the team that works on foobar2000? If this is actually a message generated by foobar2000, then what you want might not be possible, your limited to what the program is programmed to do. – Ramhound Dec 28 '11 at 12:08

For portable foobar. Make run.bat in foobar2000 folder


IF EXIST running del running
start C:\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe

Note the warning is there with a reason. For example changes to your playlist might have been lost. – Aphelion Jun 18 '13 at 7:31
