it's in program files betewwen MC5 & MC6. it's 116Mb,697 files & 10 folders as compared to MC5 which is 57.5Mb, 47 & 3.
I haven't tried to open it but could it just be a doubled up copy or something?

Hi,

That's what it sounds like. That's not a standard Mixcraft folder name.

ah,no wonder it's so large,sometime back I installed Open Freely for video file conversions & it did this.do you think it's ok to uninstall it or delete that program folder w/out screwing up anything else
like vst's/vsti's that were installed w/ MC5?

I've never used open freely, but from looking at the screen capture it looks like O.F. just associated it's self with the plugins in Mixcraft. Maybe it thinks it can use the Mixcraft plugs within O.F. because of file type association? I know a different video program this is true of. Of course I never tried such a thing so... Anyway, I would think it would be safe to uninstall O.F. If you never moved any of your plugins they should remain as they've been. Hope this helps.

whatever it was, I deleted it & it crashed MC5 which I couldn't uninstall so I had to do a fresh install of that. maybe I need to uninstall O.F. then delete that file & start over. either way,it's not hurting anything just to leave it as is. I never use MC5 anyway.

Hi,

The uninstaller for Mixcraft 5 should work now. If you're not using it, you could uninstall it, then make sure that you don't have any projects or audio files you need in those folders, and delete the folders.

As bbdrmz pointed out, I think Open Freely is causing your issue. Some articles out there about how it is a good program but can cause some problems with different file types and codecs. If you don't really use it I would remove it. :)
