Go to the audio tab on the left side of the bottom and choose MP3. I find the Helix encoder to work well. Uncheck "enabled" on the video tab, and on the container tab choose default.

What is the error message?

I can't even open the program to check.
I get a message that the free version does not allow "multiple instances".

no clue never had that. Is it open more than once? Check in task manager

I closed it in task master. Followed your instructions. Same error message. I can't catch what is says as it quickly causes the program to shut-down.

Isn't that only online-based?
It is. But what's so bad for it to be online based if you only need it occasionally? There's also this https://www.coolutils.com/Online/Audio-Converter/ or https://convertio.co/wma-mp3/ and more.

They don't seem to have the ability to condense the file.

All of them do. Just "condensing" isn't the right keyword. You just make it a lower bitrate then it is and it gets smaller.

I see no option to lower bitrate with  https://convertio.co/wma-mp3/

cant you do that with iTunes? I think you can select the file, right click then get MP3 but CMIIW.

Doesn't look like it works with Windows 10.
