Are you absolutely sure? Could you be more specific, what options did you choose in the Create Redirections dialog box? Could you post a screenshot of the Show and Remove Redirections dialog box?

Again, I don't know what you did and what is your intention. If you already have two duplicate tracks and want to create .asx file instead of one audio file, the script would transfer all metadata from that audio track to the .asx file, including Album Artist. However, if you want to create .asx file for non-existent duplicate, then Album Artist would be blank, but you could use Properties dialog box to enter that data. If .asx files should have same metadata as corresponding masters, you could choose the Synchronize Metadata of Redirected Tracks option and batch update all metadata. Anyway, when I think more about it, I consider your suggestion is valuable and I will add the Album Artist field to the dialog box in the next version of the script.

If I select "Various" from the "Artist" dropdown, it only populates the Album field with albums where there is a track with an Artist of "Various", and not Albums where the AlbumArtist is "Various". This makes it difficult to link a track from the artists own album to a compilation album, soundtrack, etc.
I really don't understand. I created links for compilations without any problem, only requirement is that duplicates should have same Artist and Title. Could you post some example, please? By the way, you should avoid using "Various" as a name for Artists, instead the Album artist should have such name.
