Hi there,

We modified the simple_event example to start one of our events very often. It crashes with some of our Soundcards on our Development-Machines. We have the same crash in one of our projects on that machines/soundcards.

We tested it with similar results with versions:


In Version 4.26.00 the crash is in fmodex.dll!00418194

Unhandled Exception at 0x00418194 reading at 0x000000d4

Disassembler, ecx is 0

00418194 D9 81 D4 00 00 00 fld dword ptr [ecx+0D4h]


Realtek High Definition Audio
SigmTel High Definition Audio CODEC

We very much appreciate your help in this issue.
Thanks in advance.

The solution for you will be to go to your wavebank settings and set "Force Software" = "yes" for every wavebank.
New versions of designer will have this enabled by default. The issue is drivers/directsound hardware support so we’re phasing this out.

Our nextmulticore engine that we’re working on totally removes hardware support (vista/windows 7 already did this ahead of us anyway :) its just XP that retains HW support).
