Crashes on Windows 10 Creators Update
Apparently the latest Java 8 update (Java8_131) crashes on Windows 10 Creators Update, when opening a file dialog. This is rather inconvenient, as beaTunes 4.6.14 happens to use that version.
If you're on Windows 10 Creators, you seem to have two options:
- Keep on using 4.6.13 or earlier.
- Update to the latest snapshot.
The macOS version is not affected by this problem. So if you aren't using Windows 10 Creators Update or haven't updated to beaTunes 4.6.14 yet, please just ignore this.

I think this problem only occurs if user is using a God Mode folder, please see http://blog.jthink.net/2017/05/beware-of-god-mode-on-latest-windows-10.html
Thanks for the additional info, Paul.
The latest beaTunes (v4.6.15) shipped with the workaround, i.e. showing file extensions. Once Java8_151 has shipped, the problem should be solved for good.
