WL 4 crashinginwindows 8.1

Post by cartyb » Sun Jan 19, 2014 9:00 pm

I used WL 4 for six years with great success in preparing radio documentaries. With anew computer runningWindows 8.1 the program will start but then crashes on trying to open or save a file.

Is there a fix out there?

The short answer is there will never be a "fix" for WL4 because only the latest versions are supported. I don't know about WL4 but one user has reported being able to get WL6 working (after a fashion) by copying the WaveLab folder from an XP installation (see here).
Windows 10 • Cubase 10.5.0 • WaveLab 10.0.0 • SpectraLayers 6.0.20 • HALion 6.3.1 • Groove Agent 5.0.20 • Midex
