Just done an install of C7.5 on new Win 8.1 PC.
Attempting to start Cubase fails with an error at "Initialising Video Player":-
Error: LoadLibrary failed with error 87: The parameter is incorrect
Anyone know how to fix this?
Seems that the AMD Catalyst Drivers for Windows 8 are missing a registry entry.
When Cubase requests OpenGL access it loads an AMD dynamic link library. This then uses the registry to load the OpenGL component as specified by OpenGLVendorName (64-bit) or OpenGLVendorNameWow (32-bit). Although the code is actually there the registry entry for 64-bit machines is absent.
How to Fix:
Use Notepad to copy and paste the following registry entry into a file and save it with a .reg extension.
Double click the file to "run" it.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Seems to have solved the issue here. My next challenge is to get a legacy Firewire driver for Win 8.1 to resolve the audio pops and clicks (thanks Microsoft!).
