I have recently bought WL 7 (having worked with WL 5 for a long time).
Now I want to do such a simple task like cutting a file and exporting it as MP3-File.
I have only one Plug-In inserted which is Ozone4 from Izotope.
Render Audio ==> Datatype ==> MP3 ==> Crash (reproducable)
I tried to save to a Network location. The Network works without any problems…
I am kind of confused !!
Win XP SP 3/ 4 GB / WL 7.1
This kind of procedure is quite common, and does not lead to a problem. If what you do, works when the target is a drive on the network, but not your local hard drive, then double check your HD.
Other than that, try to narrow down the problem.
I have enclosed a link to a screencast I have done in WL 7 to show how the crashing occurs.
Now don`t try to tell me something is wrong wiith my PC.
It works with other versions of WL and every other programm I have installed.
Do you really need playback when rendering is taking place !?
but I agree WL7 shouldn’t crash anyway !
Well it doesn
t matter wether playback is running or not -its crashing anyway.
If I understand correctly you only get the crash if you try to save to the network location but not if you save to your local HD, right?
No matter where I save (local/network) - it always crashes.
Are you using network mapped drive? Can you try saving to a standard local HD?
Did that already to no avail.
If you render to anything but mp3, does the problem happen?
Just testet is several times.
The problem persists - no matter which location or format I want to save.
Then there must be something very specific on your Windows XP system, that causes the problem only at your place. But I can’t guess more without eg. a crash dump listing.
At this stage, I would recommend erasing the WaveLab settings:
C:\Documents and Settins[UserName]\AppData\Steinberg\WaveLab 7
Then restart WaveLab.
Other than that, I guess that updating to Windows 7 would solve the problem.
