Loading an FX Chain into a slot causing reaper to hangon quit #380
From mikelact...@gmail.com on September 15, 2011 23:57:01
What steps will reproduce the problem? I load up my fx chains into a few slots. saving to the default roaming location. doesnt matter if i load them into a track or not, but when i quit reaper, the reaper process doesn't end and i am forced to restart the pc. when i re-open reaper, the fx slots in the reasources window are empty. What is the expected output? What do you see instead? pure awesomeness...this feauture is so goood. i just set up a channel strip setup for a bcr2000 and this feature is a main one...being able to load fx chains with 1 click!!!
my guess is that the pre-loaded FXs (is that what they are doing as the take some time to initally get loaded in the slot, but when they are dropped into a track they appear so dam fast!) would release themselves on exiting the reaper.
What version of SWS extension are you using? (Extensions -> About SWS...)
Version 2.1.0 Build #1 What is your Reaper version number and CPU architecture (e.g. Reaper 3.75 x64)? v4.02 32bit What operating system are you running? (e.g. Windows XP/7, OSX 10.5.8 etc, 64bit?) Windows 7 64bit
Thanks guys, u rock :D

Hey Mike (stop continues?), thanks for the detailed report!
Wow, weird! I can't reproduce here (xp 32 & win 7 x64).
From your description, it seems fx chains saved from the resource view are OK, applying them is OK but the bug is more like your FX chains slots can't be saved for some reasons, well saving them make REAPER hang...
I have some questions that could help me to debug that:

Thanks for the quick replies!!!
I;m just using all the default locations:
Im logged in with an admin account and i have UAC set to never notify...
All my fx chains are here:
I just use some sripts to back these important things up...

thanks Mike! basic path indeed & everything is dead simple in the S&M.ini file..
note: in the meantime, you can probably kill the stuck reaper.exe process in the task manager rather than rebotting the PC..

you rule man!!!
my hat goes of to u kind sir!
i've tried everything to kill reaper, even cmd..sometimes after about 7min i can close, depending on the cause of the crash. is it just windows? i hear mac users dont get these problems all the time like me and my band mate do...we have to restart a lot...
