- If the error is caused by a VST plug-in located in the shared VstPlugins folder [C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins or C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\VstPlugins], you could try this:
Run WaveLab/Tools/Tracer.exe, then run WaveLab. The tracer application should tell you which is the last loaded plug-in. Remove that plug-in from the shared VstPlugins folder or open the file "WaveLab/Presets/Plugins/Plugins to ignore.txt" and type the name of this file.
To take a "hard-way", remove all plug-ins from the shared VstPlugins folder, and run WaveLab. Then add each plug-in one after the other and run WaveLab each time, until you find the guilty DLL.
- If you have a theme manager running while trying to run Wavelab. It might not work. Theme managers such as AlienGUIse can interfere WaveLab.
- Go to Control Panel/System/Avanced/Performances/Settings/Data Execution Prevention/Turn on DEP for all program except those I select:
Add "WaveLab.exe" and "WaveLab-app.exe" and apply the changes.
- Start WaveLab in different ways, to see if the same thing happens in all case:
- From the deskop (double click on the shortcut)
- With a keyboard shortcut
- From Windows explorer, double-click on WaveLab-app.exe
- From Windows explorer, double-click on WaveLab.exe
- Disconnect from the internet, uninstall your AV software, and try without it.
- From the Windows command prompt, type "msconfig" and from the System configuration dialog, go in the Startup tab and disable the apps which are not Windows app (not located in windows/...) and reboot. Doing this step by step (or using other startup utility) could help located a conflct application.
