WMA Surround Export - "Audio Codec Not Installed"?

Post by Dietz » Thu Aug 25, 2016 1:21 pm

Hi there,

all of a sudden I get an error-message when trying to export 5.1-WMA files from Nuendo 5.5.6 (64bit) under Windows 7 prof. 64bit (SP1):

"NS_E_AUDIO_CODEC_NOT_INSTALLED"

I know that I _did_ export surround-WMA-files on the same machine successfully before, in fact I'm looking at files I created a few months ago. The installation hasn't been left untouched in the meantime (I've been installing software and especially plug-ins all the time), but I did neither change the OS nor Nuendo itself.

... any hints what went wrong ...?

TIA for any information,
/Dietz

Reply to myself ... ;-D

I had completely forgotten that this is just one of Nuendo's beloved "specials", as pointed out in this older forum message:

-> viewtopic.php?p=199198#p199198

.. in short: Just start the export twice. 8-P

... and in the end, it turned out that I used my trusty old AWave Audio 11 from FMJsoft for WMA-encoding anyway. Faster and more convenient. :lol: Case closed.
