CWPA-8 installs but won't launch. Also creates probs with IE

Postby hiresdes » Fri Jan 02, 2009 11:03 am

Have been using Cakewalk Pro Audio 8 for YEARS, no problems. Xmas day had to reinstall windows (thank you Bill Gates) XP-Pro SP3, 4GB ram, QuadCore cpu, Creative X-FI, IE7, DX 90c. Hadn't been running CWPA8 since building this new machine last year, but previous machine had XP-Pro, SP2, AMD Athlon XP, 1.5G ram, SB-Live!, IE6, DX 90c. Cakewalk ran fine.
Anyway - after installing (which went OK) on first launch CW asked to profile the sound card, still all OK. BUT after that when trying to launch Cakewalk all I get is the icon in the system tray (which dissappears instantly when I place the mouse over it). ALSO - IE stops playing MP3's on web sites I developed, and crashes. Uninstall CW and restore the registry (backed it up beforehand) and IE plays mp3's again!!! Wierd!!!

PS. Just installed this on my 'old' PC I mentioned above: XP Home (was XP-Pro then, but used the Pro disk for new PC and got Home for this one), SP3 now (was SP2 then), AMD Athlon XP, 1.5G ram, SB-Live!, IE7 (was IE6 then), DX 90c. CWPA-8 works perfectly on this machine!?!?!?!?!?!

Cool, but it's NOT the machine I want the program on.
Tech support at Cakewalk literally non-existant.
Any ideas why the program does not run (and why the simultaneous IE failure to play MP3 from web sites) on the better machine?
