I am trying to update my Waves plugins through Waves Central, but I keep getting an error message “Please close the following applications: Nuendo”. But Nuendo is not running in the background. I checked all background processes, but no Nuendo. I also restarted my PC multiple times, but I keep getting the error. So here is my question:
Are there any Nuendo dependencies running in the background, even after I close the application? If so, which ones and how can I close them?
My System is Nuendo 11
Windows 10 Pro
AMD Ryzen 9 5959X
I did contact Waves support, but this seems to be a Nuendo issue.
My guess is the Waves update/install script performs a check for running processes with the name Nuendo in it.
As a side note, open Task Manager and have a look at the amount network resources StreamDeck is consuming. It is a very busy, resource intense device, that has no business running on a professional workstation like Nuendo. It will eventual cause audio resource spikes and other weirdness in Nuendo, due to the constant network interrupt/thrashing.
Thank you for your comment. That would be the culprit then. I am using StreamDeck with my custom icons together with a third-party app that can also do midi commands. What is interesting: Waves knew immediately which process was the culprit, so I guess I wasn’t the first one experiencing this issue. Since that process is tied to StreamDeck, it will only end when I end StreamDeck, which makes total sense. So far I did not experience any issues, but I will watch out for any instabilities in the future.
