Many of the newer security suites try to lock down the machine with privacy protection and I've seen a similar message. NOT THAT ONE but similar.
Changing security suites cured it.
a) Recently in using Acid Pro 7e (latest version)
b) In creating varying edits
c) I get the following msg, but the program closes down.
" An error occured while processing the undo buffer. You should save your work immediately using a new project filename and restart ACID Pro. A necessary COM interface was not available. You many need to reboot your computer."
d) I renamed & rebooted. Though the problem still exists.
e) The problem is not just isolated to 1 single project in Acid. It's happening in various Acid projects.
Thank-you for the interesting reply..
Pardon my ignorance.... What is a security suite? And how does one change it? Are you meaning a program like Avast or McAfee? I'm not using any Anti-virus or Windows Defender or any Win Security updates on the computer at hand with the issue. It's offline & I use it specifically for music work.
Please suggest further if possible...
All the best....
Wouldn't the updates that may potentially be missing, be updates to further Microsoft security updates though? I cancel all security updates for this computer isn't online and have no worry of invasion... security updates seem to clutter up my PC. I only update pertinent system updates for the OS & drivers.
again, thanks for the suggests.
the issue, is related to ACID PRO 7 (latest version) - a software issue that is related to a: COM interface & an "undo buffer"... as the error msg states.
It arises only when trying to implement specific edits like pasting a group of files or inserting "time, a.k.a. bars of blank music space".
My naive guess is that this is a C++ or .NET Framwork issue related to perhaps in the program design itself? For C++ relates to COM interface issues. Also, the error/crash, doesn't happen in earlier versions of the program. And the new version is implementing C++ 2008 now.
Tech support at SONY Acid, are clueless and don't provide knowledgeable support either... they give always, a generic fix "please, re-install the program" - which doesn't work.
Guess I will have to revert to using the old version of the program unless I figure out a fix of some sort. My hope was to figure out what exactly was giving me the specific "error msg" stated above.
Thanks again so much for taking interest - kind of you.
