I finally got it to get past the frozen Giga window to read;
\"initialization problems-error 219\"
\"error code 10000 problems with Gigastudio file\"
I then got it to start up in the Diagnostics mode but I actually could not get it to then run diagnostics.
I did what you suggested and it stopped freezing but still gave me the same error messages, but then I changed the compatability mode in Properties to Win2K and it now seems to start ok now. (I tried that before the re-install to no avail)
I\'m running Giga 2.5x on my Athlon 1.4ghz machine, Windows XP home etc.
Ran fine all day yesterday, last several months. The only thing i did out of the ordinary was that I did back up some samples from my audio/sample drives to my Firewire drive at the end of the day.
But as of this a.m. my PC now freezes as soon as I try to open Gigastudio. Defragged and error-checked my drives already.
Anybody have any ideas?
