  • Edius 3.6 crashing: repair, reinstall, other resolve, or upgrade

    Using Edius 3.6. and it keeps crashing repeatedly. Soemtimes I know it's about to crash because I'll hear the hard drive make a mild crackling sound; other times it makes no noise.
    I've saved my project under a different name as a safety net, cleaned up the project bin, everything is rendered, etc. Is there a way to "repair" the program and avoid uninstall/reinstall? I did purchase the upgrade to 4.5, but want to finish this project before I install it since I'm under deadline. I read thru one other post on 3.6 crashing and Anton replied to check the event viewer for error logs, check disk speed, etc. I did both of those. I have some error logs. What do I do with that information? What is a good/bad disk speed report?
    Thanks.

    The sounds are typical Edius meltdown.
    Are you using VST's?
    Disable, edit, enable and output!

      Thanks Rusty. What are you telling me with disable, edit, enable, output? Disable what? Edit what? Enable what?
      I have VST plugins installed but I didn't use any in my project.

      I did look thru my error reports in the event viewer and although most of the edius.exe ones read faulting mode(fm) unknown, I did find some that read:

      (fm)comctl32.dll; (fm)ctsvstplugin.tpi; (fm) csebmb.dll verions 1.14.0.2
      the error logs from the last two days read fm unknown; the reports that had (fm) info were from 10/9. Almost everytime I shut down Edius I get an error message, which I haven't been able to figure out; but this crashing as I work problem going on is new and obviously a problem that I need to fix pronto.

      What actions does one take about the error log info in the event viewer? Also, Can you be more specific to your suggested remedy....

      Thanks a mil...

        Sorry for the confusion.

        I meant
        Disable VST's
        Edit your project
        Enable the VST's
        Output
        But, it sounds like VST's are not your problem.

        I'm in the dark about crash data,

          thanks for your time and concern.
          hopefully I'll be blessed by shutting down and rebooting (once again!)
          Is it wise to uninstall/reinstall if problem continues? Some programs have a 'repair' option but I can't find that for Edius.

            Crashing

            Some won't agree with this but I would check the fragmentation on your drives. Defragment if it is called for.

            If all else fails, "Restore" your computer to a time when things were running ok. Let me know!

              thanks chip.
              I'm planning to defrag, and if that doesn't work I was also planning to try a restore.
              I was hoping that putting in the program disc and running a repair would solve the problem - but no such luck.
              I'll let you know if defrag/restore solve the problem.
              thanks...Susan
