    Stop, Warning

    If you are using Finale 2007c I would seriously consider pushing the pause button before installing the KP2 2.2.3 update and the HP update for Finale 2007c. Before I did these two updates Finale 2007c was working perfectly. Now the program either crashes or locks-up my computer. Not even Ctrl+Alt+Delete can stop the program from running. I literally have to pull the plug on the computer.

    I was working just fine as I said prior to these two updates. I have been using Finale 2008 for the past two to three weeks and not using Finale 2007. I did however want to look at some files without importing them in to Finale 2008. Each time I attempted to load NI VST GPO instruments the proram would lock up. When I tried to use the Set UP Wizard the program crashed and burned.

    Finale 2008 is working fine and not locking up nor crashing.

    Samatha, I really think the latest Fin2007 HP updates has nothing to do with this.
    HP is not involved in loading VST instruments at all. Period.

    Also, it looks like a Win only problem since Fin2007c with the KPL2 2.2.3 runs just fine on my mac.

    Best,
    Robert

    By the way - you don't need to pull your power cord.

    Hold the power button on your computer for about 5 seconds and it'll turn off. (If you don't have a "reset" button, which will do a hard reset.)

    It's a figure of speach.

    Thanks Richard. Actually, it is work just fine now. Some kind of anomaly. I have not had any problems with 2007c in months. Then this morning crashes every time used the Setup Wizard to create a file and locking up when I tried to load VST instruments.

    I did notice that there were great surges of CPU power being used. As I said up 99%.

    All is clear and my particular scare is over. It is safe to go in the water.

    Well that is weird! I had this same type of lock up happen, and it was on my mac. In mac, you can do a force quit from the Apple icon dropdown menu, but that would not work because everything was frozen, including cursor and keyboard. I was also messing with an existing Finale 2007 file when it occurred.

    After i killed it with the on/off switch, I thought it might be like a virus or some kind of bot invasion, because some really weird stuff was coming up on Disc Utility's Permission Repair... Stuff like Servers and fetchmail. So I did a Ram reset, erased all the free space, and ran all of Icecleans maintenance things before and after doing that... and so far everything seems to be working well.

    Hey, that reminds me of something i was going to ask you Mac experts.

    After having the problem i just described, i also went into the terminal and cd'ed to usr/bin, and erased mail and fetchmail, since i don't use it and it looked like something else was trying to. I don't serve up anything here, like webpage or mail, my mail is on yahoo, and i would like to erase anything in there that i don't need. I don't recall the name of the server that was possibly being messed with, maybe it was apache but could have been a different one, and there was something called Awk with permissions changed to let everyone have all permissions. What the heck is Awk? And can I erase some things without harm, and if so, what?

    Thanks!
    David

    PS: Samantha, I hope you have no more probs on your end, wish i could help or give advise, but don't know much about Windows OS.

    Hey Samantha

    I have the exact same problem with JABB and the onboard GPO sounds crashing with 2007c.. strangely, it doesn't happen on my older slower computer (also PC). I didn't think it had anything to do with the HP & Kontakt updates, but I'll try get rid rid of them now cause I've reached desperation point!

    I am using Finale 2008 with no problems. With 2007c what you need is is the origional FinaleVSTHost.dll, Version: 1.0.0.18. This the file that comes with the out of the box install. 2007c has Version: 1.0.0.19. which is what was causing the crashes and freezing for me. You can request the FinaleVSTHost.dll from MakeMusic tech support, or you can uninstall Finale. Re-install. Copy and save the FinaleVSTHost.dll to your desktop. Do the 2007c update. Copy and past the FinaleVSTHost.dll back into the Finale 2007 folder. This file is located in the C:/Programs Files/Finale 2007. It is one of the blue and gold cog icon files. Once you do this you will have to do the same steps to install all of your GPO samples and the KP2 update.
