The patch that was posted, with a minor modification, will work with Wavelab 4.
I don’t see anything shady or illegal about the patch. It includes only two files–an XP version of a Windows file called comdlg32.dll (the Vista version is responsible for Wavelab crashing upon trying to open/save), and a modified version of a Wavelab file called CommonVcPh.dll. The modification is minor, altering only two characters in a text string, so that it will look for the XP version of comdlg32.dll (the patch gives it the name comdlgxp.dll).
For the patch to work with Wavelab 4, the Wavelab 4 version of CommonVcPh.dll has to be used instead of the Wavelab 5 version, and a hex editor has to be used to edit a single mention of “comdlg32.dll” in the file, so that it will instead look for “comdlgxp.dll.”
All that remains is to insert both files into the Wavelab folder, and then set Wavelab 4 up to run in Windows XP Service Pack 2 Compatbility Mode. Afterwards, it works flawlessly with Windows Vista.
Is this the real fix for W7? Does anyone have these files for downloading?
Could anyone at Steinberg offer a real solution?
