After a System recommended update to my Realtek Driver to v184.108.40.20689, on load to PE7 got an Exception dialog box at Wave_Warp.aex.
Clicked continue a few times, PE loaded okay with good sound, also had good sound on play from Burn-to-Folder.
Rolled back Realtek Driver via Device Manager, no fix on Exceptions.
Rolled back System Image (via Rollback-RX), with no fix, (this really scared me, cause Rollback-RX is usually foolproof).
No matter how far I roll back the Sys Image, I get the same Exception Error.
Was going to re-install PE7, but decided to try a Repair first.
Repair hung at Loading Smart Sound for over 30 minutes on a screaming i7Core running at 3.00 ghz.
I Forced a Shut Down of the Repair.
Then without re-booting, I fired up PE7 and the Exception Error was gone on load.
Then I roll forward to my latest System Image, PE loads okay.
I can't explain what happen, but any fix, is a good fix....LOL...
If your not familiar with RollBack-rx, check it out here:
I will not run my editing PC without it, it's a winner (even with my recent experience above, it has saved me countless hours of rebuiding my image because of Microsoft and Vendor install issues)...
