Tascam Hi-Res Editor (dsdapp.exe error)


Recommended Posts

I've used Tascam Hi-Res Editor on other computers successfully.


But for some reason, on one laptop, when I try to open the program I get: dsdapp.exe has stopped working.


Then I have to close the window which closes the program opening process.


My PC is 64 bit (as is the software), I've tried rebooting, opening the program as an administrator, using Revo uninstaller to clear out the program and then reinstall.


No luck on anything.


Any ideas?

Check the event log. If no clue there, get procmon, run the prgram with it active, filter log by program name.


A lot of times you will find that permissions for a required resource or registry key have gotten fubar.


Hey rn701,


First and most of all, thanks for the quick reply.


After downloading and running procmon, I came up with this:


12:12:51.2653250 PM consent.exe 10000 CreateFileMapping C:\Program Files (x86)\TASCAM\HiResEditor\DsdApp.exe FILE LOCKED WITH ONLY READERS SyncType: SyncTypeCreateSection, PageProtection: |PAGE_NOCACHE


Any idea what this means or what I can do about it?


Regardless, thanks again.

Thanks so much again. No permissions related messages.


Would any of these be the culprit?

Sorry, I'm stumped.


The suspicious looking entries to me are the OPLOCK NOT GRANTED and INVALID DEVICE REQUEST. Sounds like a hardware/device/port conflict of some sort, like something else is using it.


The other thing is, I looked up MsMpEng.exe which is generating those messages, and I believe it is Windows Defender. If that's on, might try turning it off (or uninstalling it?) to see if that works. Maybe it's protecting/blocking access to some resource your program needs?

What aspects of this editor make its conversions from dsd to PCM sound (different) (IMO better by far) than other converters like dbPoweramp? I have used it with SACD rips and LP transfers recorded with the DA-3000. thanks, stephanie
