I just compiled a new version which you can sort your playlist by artist
name, album name, song title, duration, bitrate (if they exists in ID3 tags)
I run the program on my 6 gb of mp3 files (1500 file) it took 2 mins to
generate all the playlists and sort them via USB 1.1 connection.
You can download the program from
This is about 1.3 mb (sorry, it must include VB6 runtime dll files)
If you believe you installed a vb program before, you might have those big
runtime dlls, so you can try

well i sort them in alphabetical order, using path+filename (the whole line)
as key using the Sort function in Minimalistic Build-Environment for win32.
I think it could be possible to sort each generated playlist right after the
prog generated it using a port of unix sort command
