Installed D4 trial yesterday because I wanted to share some files with someone who’s using it.
Yesterday it was working fine. Today I went to close a file and instead of the usual splash screen, the chart closed but nothing appeared. Re-started my rig and with nothing else running, chose a D4 file and clicked Open. D4 opened and spent quite a while waiting at the ‘Audio Engine’ part of startup. I thought it was going to fail but then it continued. Showed me the dialog box which says ‘We shut down improperly, do you want to recover’, I said yes, and then tried to open another file. ‘Not Responding’
So I I clicked ‘Shut down Program’ and it seemed to shut down. Now though, I can’t get the program to launch, either by clicking the desktop shortcut or by right clicking a D4 file and choosing Open. Just won’t start.
Any suggestions? Timing sucks a bit, I tried to open the D4 files I was sent in D 3.5 but they weren’t displaying right. They look great in D4 but I need D4 running to continue working and I have a deadline. Tried looking in Task Manager but it doesn’t seem to be running, only Steinberg License Engine is running
If I have to buy a license I will, I’m going to do that anyway - might that solve this? Windows 10, and I ran the proc and system parameters by Daniel and he said I should be fine.
