windows 7 ableton constantly crashes
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with an RME babyface
The system is TOTALLY bare bones all I have installed is
Windows 7 Home edition (not the like bundled one that comes with the laptop but a straight from MS basic install)
Drivers for the interface (interface is totally updated firmware and drivers)
ESET Virus software (that I've tried disabling and working without and Ableton still crashes)
I don't have any vsts any plugins any third party software.... Nothing.. And it crashes at the most random times... I'll have a set open with one clip and just click the stop button... BOOM
And whenever ableton crashes the process won't shut down like I open task manager and hit end task and nothing.
Also I have to completely shut down the computer. If I just do a restart ableton continually crashes. I have to completely shut down the computer unplug all the USB devices, boot the computer and than plug everything back in... :-(
I'm running a Lenovo Edge 0570
it's an i5 core processor with 4 gigs of RAM
I need to figure out what's buggy
I know this is probably opening up a can of warms... But is Ableton just that buggy in windows? I mean even the MIDI system on W7 seems messed up... Like there's a bug in W7 where midi gets stuck and you have to just play a bunch of notes for it to free up (someone at AKAI pointed this out to me)... Also sometimes switching between sets my MIDI just goes out sometimes... On a different windows system we're running Cubase 6 all legit and it usually crashes on us once or twice a session as well :-/
Thanks ahead of time
