I upgraded to 7.1 last night - doesn't seem to have made any difference.
I've been testing with a few cheap / free plugins:
* some of the Helian amp sims
* Free Amp 2
* Vinyl Boy
Maybe that's my problem.
FWIW, I used to get heaps of the above type of DAE errors, but I followed
the Digidesign FAQ, applied the AMD CPU hotfixes, use a second drive for
recording etc. and the DAE errors have been pretty rare since then, until
I tried to use the VST wrapper.
The Protools crash problem can be replicated by trying to remove a wrapped
plugin from a track insert, or deleting / disabling the track, or closing a
Protools session that has wrapped plugins.
I am having the exact same problem...but it seems to be only with certain plugins! Usually, since 99% of the VST plugins I use are freeware, I just shrug it off and move on. But I just purchased Audio Damage's Automaton (which is AWESOME), and it works great, but trying to remove it from a track or closing a pro tools session that I use it in will cause pro tools to crash, necessitating computer reboot.
Any solutions for this?
One note...I emailed Audio Damage about this problem before I purchased Automaton, and they quickly replied that they have many customers who use the fxpansion wrapper + Automaton with no problems. So maybe it's just my older computer?
