Problem

Post by Pete Stobbs » Sun Jul 26, 2015 6:14 am

This has just started. Not done anything unusal.

Getting the message on start up "Failed to connect to a windows service.....group policy client"
message is a bit quick to write it down. It's possible it's logged but where?

But the main thing is when loading Mixcraft 7 64 bit (279) (win 8.1) I get a blank white screen in mixcraft for maybe 10 seconds and then Mixcraft starts. It usually loaded straight up...no white screen.

Intermittently, Mixcraft puts out the message "change in audio device detected" when no such thing has happened.

Any ideas?

Interesting. Windows media player does not play any soundfile I select.
Could it have something to do with WIN 10 downloading itself periodically?
