have you tried deleting the preferences? backup the prefs first if you have presets or layouts etc you want to save.

wavelab 7 works ok on Win 10 here. but I was a Win 7 upgrade.

The Wavelab prefs. It's what's usually prescribed for solving big problems. The following is for Cubase and Nuendo, but it's the same process for Wavelab. Under "Initializing Preferences":

I have multiple Wavelab prefs folders in there, one for each version of Wavelab I have installed. Initialize the Wavelab 7 folder in there.

Hey Bob.

Again. this is a fresh, new born OS. there is only "startup" file there. I change the name of the folder - but again the Wavlab NEVER worked under the win10.
I even trashed it on the "windows.old".

The WaveLab 7 Compatibility Patch for Win 8 64-bit on the page below fixes the problem here on a new install on Win 10 to a computer that never had Wavelab 7. That works here, after I reproduced your problem on a separate install.

The latest 7.2.1 installer and Compatibility Patch "should" fix the problem. it does here.

Solved by installing the patch of Win 8.

Thnx a lot Bob
