Depending on how FLAC Frontend is installed, it could be one of two things: 1) you are trying to encode to file to a directory where you do not have write permission; 2) the FLAC Frontend program must be set to run as Administrator by opening Windows Explorer, navigating to <span class="command">C:\Program Files\FLAC</span> (or wherever FLAC was installed), then right-clicking on <span class="command">FLAC Frontend.exe</span> and checking "Run this program as an administrator".<br />
You are probably using an old version of FLAC Frontend. Try downloading a new version from <a href="">this sourceforge page</a><br />
