Render in Place


Does anybody recognize this problem? And can anybody help me please with solving this problem?

I want to render in place my Halion Sonic Se instrument track that plays the chords from the Chord Track.
So I selected my Halion Sonic Se track. and I click:
Edit > Render in Place > Render (with Current Settings)
Edit > Render in place > Render Settings
and then absolutely nothing happens.
I think this is wrong.
Is this a known problem or is it just me who does something wrong?

Thanks for helping me out

Do you have any actual data on the HS SE track, or is it just playing the chords from the chord track?

If not, then select and drag the chords to the HS SE track (they now become MIDI data) and try again.
