WMA Surround Export - "Audio Codec Not Installed"?

Hi there,

all of a sudden I get an error-message when trying to export 5.1-WMA files from Nuendo 5.5.6 (64bit) under Windows 7 prof. 64bit (SP1):

“NS_E_AUDIO_CODEC_NOT_INSTALLED”

I know that I did export surround-WMA-files on the same machine successfully before, in fact I’m looking at files I created a few months ago. The installation hasn’t been left untouched in the meantime (I’ve been installing software and especially plug-ins all the time), but I did neither change the OS nor Nuendo itself.

… any hints what went wrong …?

TIA for any information,

Reply to myself … ;-D

I had completely forgotten that this is just one of Nuendo’s beloved “specials”, as pointed out in this older forum message:

… in short: Just start the export twice. 8-P

… and in the end, it turned out that I used my trusty old AWave Audio 11 from FMJsoft for WMA-encoding anyway. Faster and more convenient. :laughing: Case closed.
