Here's a word to the wise! I have 3 DAW's that are rock solid. I had turned off all but 7 services. The DAW's are connected to the internet for Software Registration purposes and also upgrades. The service that I have still enabled are: (and according to www.blackviper.com)
Plug and Play
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Windows Installer (Manual)
Windows Management Instrumentation
These are the only ones you need if this is used only as a DAW.
NOW, I have left out one IMPORTANT thing!
**DO NOT TURN OFF "CRYPKEY LICENSE"**
GigaStudio will not open!!
According to www.blackviper.com, this service is not needed.
"No. This service is installed if you use "Swish" (swishzone.com). It is required to start up the program, otherwise an error about writing to a memory location pops up. Set this to Disabled until you need it. Note: If set to "Manual," this service will NOT start on its own (thus the error message)."
DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE! LOl I've just wasted 2 days of troubleshooting!
