A notice for Windows users:
It has been reported by some customers that Windows Defender notifies that some program executables of the plug-in could pose a security problem. Starting from Windows Defender virus definition version 1.291.1464.0 the issue has been solved. If you notice that the plug-in doesn't work as it should, it's likely that Windows Defender has quarantined some executables. Please, update the virus definition to the latest available release and the problem should be solved.
Please follow the steps below to clear cached detection and obtain the latest malware definitions.
1. Open command prompt as administrator and change directory to
c:\Program Files\Windows Defender

There are three options:
update metadata items with entries in the source
The default setting. Only updates a clip’s metadata if there’s a valid entry in the imported CSV file. Other clip metadata fields are left as they were before the import.
- Update all metadata fields available in the source file: For each clip that corresponds to a line of metadata in the imported CSV file, every single metadata field referenced by the CSV file is overwritten, regardless of whether or not there’s a valid entry for that field.
- Update all metadata fields available in the source file and clear others: For each clip that corresponds to a line of metadata in the imported CSV file, every single metadata field referenced by the CSV file is overwritten, regardless of whether or not there’s a valid entry for that field. Furthermore, metadata fields that aren’t referenced by the imported CSV file are cleared of whatever metadata was there before.
When you’re finished choosing options,
click OK and all available metadata from
the source CSV
file will be imported.
