  • Edius 5 crashing on startup

    Hi All, I'm having an issue with getting Edius 5 to load.

    I installed Edius 5 on a fresh Windows XP SP3 installation. (No previous version of Edius whatsoever). Installation went fine, with no errors whatsoever.

    Upon trying to launch it, Edius 5 crashed before even launching.

    I get the following error box:



    Probably Edius 5 has issues with AMD processors.

    I hope there will be a fix soon!

    I noticed the BEX error, If you type BEX in search I started a post about this, I had the error pop up once in Vista 64bit, it is to do with vista 64bit not liking the program, there is a few programs around that throws up the same error two, I notice you are using XP though, just a thought maybe since Edius 5 was designed to run on Vista it doesn't play nice with XP now, I don't think iy is your AMD.

      Thanks for the note. I found your message regarding a BEX error on your Vista 64. After further research I found that BEX = Buffer Overflow Exception.

      A detailed article is found on BEX at Microsoft's TechNet website, and some things to do, ie fiddle with DEP settings in the Control Panel. But despite the fact I added Edius to the DEP exception list, the BEX error still pops up.

        As an editor, I think you should use a PC built for work, not for games.
        Threfore, I highly recommend to use Intel based machine- you will save yourself some troubleshouting... And this is not only for Edius...

          Yeah some programs just don't like 64bit Vista, I am not really sure what Canopus did to make it work on Vista 64bit, but I do think they have go to go back to the drawing board, I was running version 4.61 on Vista 64bit with the EXE Edius file added to DEP and never had a problem at all,

            Thanks for the note. However, AMD processors (much like Intel) are not made exclusively for gaming. AMD processors (such as the AMD Opteron) are extensively used in servers. The AMD Phenom X4 Quad-core is targeted at Businesses. I strongly disagree that the AMD processor is a gaming processor.

            Assuming there's a CPU compatibility issue with Edius, the programmers over Grass Valley may consider adding some programming code to Edius in order to also take advantage of the AMD processors. This not only makes perfect business sense, but it will also make lots of folks happy.
