csound~ crashing

    Dec 07 2010 | 9:49 pm
    Hi Everyone,
    I'd be very grateful if someone could help me out with this.
    I was wondering whether anyone is successfully using csound~ with Max/Msp 5 or MaxforLive on Windows 7 64-bit. I'm using the latest versions of Max and csound~, and have tried both the double and float versions of csound5, but it invariably ends up crashing.
    Heres an example crash report:
    Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: Max.exe Application Version: Application Timestamp: 4ce56718 Fault Module Name: libfluidsynth-1.dll_unloaded Fault Module Version: Fault Module Timestamp: 4a358baf Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Offset: 6f381364 OS Version: 6.1.7600. Locale ID: 2057 Additional Information 1: 0a9e Additional Information 2: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789 Additional Information 3: 0a9e Additional Information 4: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789
    I can recreate these crashes by starting a .csd file with csound~, stopping it and then opening a new explorer window (ie 'Computer' or a desktop folder). Crashes also occur when moving between Ableton and MaxforLive.
    Both MaxMsp and MaxforLive are very stable otherwise, so it's definitely related to csound~ somehow.
    It will be useful to know whether or not others are having the same problem. Any advice would be great.
    Many Thanks

      I think I ran into this problem a while back as well. Basically fluid synth was causing the problem. I had to remove the fluid synth dll.

      Thanks for the hint Anthony. I moved 'fluidOpcodes.dll' from Csound's plugin folder and this seems to have solved the problem. I hope this workaround proves useful to anyone else having difficulties.
      Thanks again.
