Here is whats happening, I am hoping someone can help or post a link to a previous discussion, basic searching didnt find an answer for me. thanks!
I have a mac pro 1,1 running my main daws (cu, dp, pt) where I open a VEP instance and connect to a template open on one of my PCs. My setup has worked for years. It was:
Mac 1 - Lion - main daws - motu 2408mk3 (x2)
PC1 - win xp x64, VEP5, Hammerfall HDSP9652 (last working version for xp x64, which i kept all the computers at that version)
PC2 - win 7 64, VEP5, Hammerfall HDSP9652 - worked then, works now
So I would load cubase 6.5 on the mac, open an instance of VEP 16 channels and then connect to one of the pc's available templates open. Great stuff!
Recently I had a corrupted C: drive on the XP x64 machine. So rather than rebuild that one and keep having to use the older version of VEP that works for xp, I decided to install WIN7 64 on that PC.
Now when I get the PC all set up and upgrade all my VEP on all machines to 5.4.13715, the mac will see the old machine that didnt have any problems just fine, but the new Win7 it just doesnt show up on the mac, as if when you used to have 2 diff versions of VEP and the mismatch would just not appear.
Any thoughts on how to handle this?
