Im trying to get to my Wavlab and during the loading of the plugins, which takes long long minutes, the sof crushes (now on the softube bundle).
I need to restart it again and again just to make the whole procedure again and more crushing.
I just want to get into the software.
One plugin is causing trouble. Find it and remove it.
Im sorry to say but it all kinds of plugs.
I cant remove them cause I do use them in nuendo.
btw, some of them did work in the past.
When I ask the Wavlab to “skip” it just crashs
If you are using the 32 bit version of WaveLab, try the 64 bit (or reciprocally).
Copy the file:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\WaveLab 7\Factory Presets\Plugins\plugins to ignore.txt
C:\Users\Philippe\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\WaveLab 7\Preferences\Plugins to ignore.txt
Open and add in this list, the plugin name you want to ignore.
You can use wildcard characters: * and ?
First of all thnx for helping out.
I reinstalled the W7 with the update (and without), now its not get open at all.
I did all the process again, and again - nothing.
I do use the 64 version.
I dont really know what happend but the wavlab didnt work properly since i went to Win10.
i did the compibillity check and used the win10 as win7 but the wavelab is not responding.
Give the Wavelab 9 trial a try (you wont lose anything and it’s very small). Does it still happen there?
I want my Wvlb7 to be fix not 9.
try the 32 bit version.
Or use the softwares that were available when WaveLab 7 was tested: Windows 7, and plugins not older than WaveLab 7.
Is there a way to disable the vst load?
I cant see a way I going back to WIn7 just for Wavlab.
all my plugs are new and updated.
Copy the file
C:\Program Files\Steinberg\WaveLab 7\Factory Presets\Plugins\plugins to ignore.txt
and add in this text file, this simple one-character line to ignore all plugins:
Hi Philippe - I’m having the same problem - Wavelab starts up and does the plug-in scan and freezes after a few seconds. When I choose to skip the plugin that is hanging up, WL crashes but leaves 3 WL icons bouncing around on my task bar which I have to force close. This started after I accidentally pushed the “force scan plugins” button in WL and because it’s just a button and not a switch, I could not undo the request. I was simply trying to stop this plugin scan because it was taking up to 10 minutes every time I launched WL Is there a way to get into WL in a safe mode and fix whatever is happening now?
First, retry after booting.
If this is not enough, then use the plugins to ignore.txt method described before
I can work with the WL now, after reinstalling plus the patch plus removing softube plugs.
after the patch (apparently I had the wrong patch and it made the process way more problematic) and move the softube to another place the WL went up.
I still need to find a solution for the softube cause I use them a lot.
Thanks PG - where is this on the Mac platform? (reboots did not work).
Create a text file there:
/Users/YourName/Library/Preferences/WaveLab 7/Preferences/Plugins to ignore.txt
And on the 1st line, set this character:
PG - still no luck after following your instructions. When I launch WL, it hangs up on a plugin and when I choose SKIP, WL crashes. See attachments of the status after implementing your instructions. Thanks
Just to add, if I choose to skip once, WL freezes on the plugin it’s trying to find, if I choose to skip permanently, WL just crashes.
You must add the “.txt” extension to the file “Plugins To Ignore”
