I have used GoldWave for many years without problems but now, when I try to play and edit music files file my computer shuts down. This does not happen with any other programs or files. This has just started to happen. How can I correct this? I have uninstalled and tried to reinstall the program and again, my machine shuts down. This does not happen when I install other programmes. Another program (Audacity) plays the sale music files without problems.
Already tried that - no joy. Also tried downloading and installing latest drivers for creative sound blaster and the program worked but the sound was very poor. This suggests that creative is the problem. I will continue the struggle in the morning! exhaustion is setting in.
I remember uninstalling a Creative Sound Blaster card from an old pc and although I used 'add/remove' programmes. After reInstalling the drivers I had the same problem. I ended up going into the registry and removing everything to do with the sound card.
You don't say which SB Card it is, but I would go to creatives website and look for the model and see if there are any extra 'uninstall' instructions.
I have solved the problem. It was my sound card was the cause. When I downloaded and installed the latest upgrade from Audacity the programme worked perfectly again! Thanks for all of your responses. I continue to be a fervent supporter of GoldWave.
