I bought ID3 Editor today, for use in Windows, and am having issues with the Command Line tool id3edcmd.exe...

When I use the following command, it results in no error, but it does not seem that the images are being embeded into the MP3's.
"C:\Program Files\Pa-software\Windows ID3 Editor\id3edcmd.exe" -ir *.mp3 Folder.jpg

I've tried to follow the limited documentation supplied in the help file (see below).  I don't quite understand the intention without an actual example.
Usage: id3edcmd [options] file [file]...

Your assistance on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I am afraid the problem is because wildcards are not allowed in the command line editor file names. You need to use a batch script to get the files and then pass them to the editor e.g.:

@echo off
for /r "drive:\path\dir" %%g in (*.mp3) do (
rem echo %%~nxg
"C:\Program Files\Pa-software\Windows ID3 Editor\id3edcmd.exe" -ir "%%~nxg" Folder.jpg

Where 'drive:\path\dir' is where the MP3 files reside.
