Hi, long time listener (1-2 weeks anyway), first time caller. Okay, so this week I got a loan, ordered the GigaStudio Bundle 3 with AO and QLB, an Aardvark LX6, and an IBM Deskstar 45GB Hardrive. The LX6 and GigaStudio Bundle came today. Hooked LX6 up--smooth. Next GS. Setup.exe--smooth. Restart the computer and start GigaStudio. Fine. Asks me for disk two. I insert it and press the \"next\" button. This is where the \"No ASPI for WIN32 support detected\" window with the header \"Error S-Convertor\" comes up. Click okay, click
okay, and try it again. Same thing. I try clicking finish. Get another message \"Can\'t access this COM port for MIDI. Make sure this COM port is not in use by another program or device\" with header of \"Roland Serial MIDI Driver.\" Click \"OK\". Get a bunch of consecutive error windows with the first error (No ASPI, etc.) and then it crashes. I don\'t think the MIDI/COM port thing is part of the problem but I threw it in anyway, just in case. I\'ve searched Microsoft Help for info about ASPI, gone to their website to try and find a download or something, search the help from GS, scour and searched this site. I\'ve sent an email to Nemesys but I don\'t know if my childish self can wait that long. I\'m sure it is an obvious problem to someone or everyone here...I hope. What should I do? I want to hear the pretty, pretty sounds.

Unfortunately, I never did solve it. I do have it working however because I ended up reinstalling Windows on a new hard drive and adding one program at a time, etc. Basically, what it comes down to--from my Anti-Windows friends--is that Windows is a piece of crap and I think we\'re all familiar with that story. I wish I could give you some advice. I live in fear that the same problem will crop up again at any time and I really don\'t feel like installing Windows on a new hard drive. I\'m afraid to finish installing all my programs. Sorry, I\'ve no advice.
