  • upping to 1113 a huge mistake here

    Server project crashes on load, then server hangs on initialization

    it could be other updates are the problem but after an hour I have to say it's fatal, everything has to roll back.

    the prev. version did this sometimes but it would not cause the server to hang every single time.

  • Hi,

    I couldn't find a mail from you to our support team... Did you send us a tiny bit more information, including crash reports and reproduction steps?

  • I typed the basics in the dialog that popped up consequently.
    There's no steps past open the project, it wouldn't and then it wouldn't initialize after. Three times in a row.

    It's ok, I'm just going to stick with 1056 which did that one on occasion but recovers. My hope was an update would mean the opposite, would fix that. I don't have another particular reason to update it.
    It crashes during the load of instance 2, I think it doesn't like something about BFD3. 1056 when it did this was the same timing, the only things in that instance was BFD3 (a dozen or so outputs) and VSL. This one has Kontakt with Geosonics II as well as VI Pro and Synchron. And 1056 has not crashed since. I deleted both the plists in preferences and dealt with those consequences... seems like I found some cache file to delete

  • the report is not going to appear under the name I use for this profile, which is a stage name.

  • Can you (or someone) tell me how to 'roll back' if there are problems with an update.   I have a break here until the next project (3 days) BUT I may have to bounce out additional mixes from previous project.  I am currently on 7.0.1056 (works solidly) - I don't have that installer and cannot find an 'archive section' in My products.   Many thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    Same here but with 7.0.1120 ! I had to go back to 1056 witch is the only one available in the archive (Rob if you have to download previous versions of VEP you have to click on your profile Icon in the upper right corner and then go to "MyVSL" to get the menu)

    Strange thing is that it crashes my MacPro 2012 with OSX Mojave 10.14.6 without even loading a project ! and there is no way out than hard shutdown, so no log is available to send to report.

    but the two mac mini with Mojave and Catalina seems to behave normal...


    Update : I had to roolback the two Mac Mini to 1056 also as the issue seemed to come from wrong audio output allocation. but didn't crashe them, just wrong comunication between master Mac Pro and Slaves.

    Take car when doing that to properly uninstall VEPro before installing previous version of the soft, and deleted preferences (user/Library/Pref), reset the instances settings in the VEPro prefrence panel and restart computer...took me two ours this morning to understand and now I can get back to work...stupid me that did an update in the middle of a projetc :-(

  • Groovevs - thanks a ton for the information.   Given your experience and the 'likelihood' that I'll have to go back to last project for new mixes I am going to wait to update.    I am on W10 but call me safe and paranoid.  :)   Thanks again.



  • You are welcome Rob, hope it helped you finding previous reliable version of VEP.
