Since I installed VEP7, Digital Performer 9 cannot run in midi only mode, it crashes. Removing VEP7 and replacing it with VEP 6 makes DP normal again. 

BUT, now I can't load recent projects because they say they were made in VEP7. (even though I did not use any of the new features)

Help! I'm in mid-project and this is making it impossible to work. :-(

Hi Alan,

I just checked and DP9 does not crash when running it in MIDI only mode here when VE Pro 7 is installed - there are simply no Audio plug-ins activated/available!

I tested it by launching DP9 holding the Shift-key and then loading a previously saved project which is using VE Pro 7...

Is this on Mac or PC?

Best, Marnix

I'm on PC and it is still happening. Everything is normal as long as DP is NOT midi only.

Hi Alan,

I justed checked again on my Win 10 PC and cannot reproduce this on it either...

What I do not understand is the fact that VE Pro 7 matters at all when DP is in MIDI-only mode - from my experience, this leads to not loading any audio plug-ins at all!

Would you please send me such a crashing DP9/VEP7 project to , so I can see wether I can reproduce the problem with it?

Best, Marnix

Thank you for your reply. It does not even require opening a project. With VEPro 7 installed, even if it is not running and I open DP 9.5 (not even a file, just the opening screen) and then set it to midi only, DP immediately crashes. If I go back to VEPro 6 DP behaves normally. 

:-(

Is there a way to save VEPro7 files as VEPro6 so I can go back?

Hi Alan,

Ok, thanks for the additional instructions - I was launching DP 9 from scratch in MIDI Only mode by holding the Shift key while launching.

I was now able to reproduce your DP crashes and have notified our developers of it - hopefully they can come up with a fix quickly!

Unfortunately, projects created with VEP 7 can not be saved in a way so they can be opened with VEP 6...

Best, Marnix

Thanks so much. :-)  At least that is a good tip, I didn't know about the shift key shortcut.
