    Install Help

    Hi All,
    I\'m hoping some of you might have some insights into a resolution to my problem.
    I have GigaSampler and cannot start it
    successfully. The program consistently crashes with \'illegal page fault in mfc42.dll\' in the second step (scanning disks) of the startup routine.
    Hardware: Gateway 1GHz Athlon, 256Meg ram,
    30Gig hard drive, Frontier WaveCenter PCI,
    SoundBlaster Live (disabled), Win98r2,
    internal modem (not connected). No other
    software installed (beyond the stuff pre-
    installed by Gateway -- hard to see what
    could lead to a failure in the microsoft
    foundation classes).
    I can\'t even register because the crash
    occurs before successful launch...
    Got through to tech support once and Dave
    sent the patch to update to 1.6, apparently
    required for the WaveCenter. Didn\'t help.
    No response to emails to Nemesys; you guys
    are my last hope!
    Thanks!
    Bill

    Sometimes during the install process, the wrong version of mfc42.dll ends up in the Windows\\System folder.

    Do a search of your HD and find all copies of mfc42.dll. Place the one with the most recent date in \\Windows\\System.

    That may well do it.

    PS

    If that doesn\'t work, pack your system up and send it to me!

    Dave here. Sorry if you had a hard time getting through to us. I\'ll keep an eye out for your emails. Anyway, be sure that you have the latest (GSIF compatible) WaveCenter PCI drivers. (you may already of course) but a couple people had this problem and it turned out they were still using older drivers.
    Talk to you soon

    Sadly, updating the Frontier drivers made no
    difference. The version of mfc42.dll is the latest installed on the machine.
    Any other ideas? I\'m afraid my next step
    will be to uninstall the WaveCenter and see
    if it works with the SB Live. I\'d REALLY
    like to avoid having to reinstall the whole
    bloody OS, so any advice or help would be
    great!
    Thanks much,
    Bill

    Bill,

    A couple of things to try:

    make sure you have latest patch for GigaSampler. Go to our web site and get either v1.61 or v1.62 (LE users only).

    If you have the latest version, then try
    disabling all other sound cards, other than the Frontier card. I think the GPF is caused because there is DirectSound card in your machine conflicting with the Frontier.

    Hope this helps
