Tried to get this to work, but i get:
ERROR: INVALID DATA
ERROR: Cannot open output file C:\Users\dread\AppData\Local\Temp\Renoise-0-2144\Renoise_TmpFile-0-121.ana
errors for nearly all presets too.
Win7 x64: i tried the suggestion above: XP Mode and User Acount Control thingy off.
What i did notice is that when you move the CDP folder to “\Program Files (x86)” os.execute() doesn’t work anymore because of the the white space in the filename.
Change line 499 to: return “”" … path…exe … “” " … mode and it works again (File names with spaces need to be “quoted”).
Not 100%-ish sure, but i think windows allows user names with spaces too? In that case all the other file names should be quoted for windows too, i suppose.
So this didn’t work?
CDP and Windows 7, 64-bit Edition – current information
Soundshaper and CDP run well on Windows 7, but they do NOT run natively on Windows 7, 64-bit.
However, it is may be possible to run CDP / Soundshaper in XP Mode. Apparently, the procedure below can be done in the Windows 7 ‘Professional’ and ‘Ultimate’ Editions, but NOT in Windows 7 ‘Home’ Edition. Thus, CDP is not compatible with Windows 7 Home Edition.
Install the CDP exes into the x86 folder.
Change the permissions of the installation folder, and that of Soundshaper’s Temp ‘Sounds’ folder, and therefore all the contents of both, to 777 or ‘Total Control’ for all users: Right Click on the folder, ‘properties’, ‘security’ then set ‘system’ and all the ‘users’, including ‘administrator,’ to ‘Total Control’.
Turn off User Account Control.
Set all the exe files inside the CDP installation directory (e.g., in cdpr6_cdp_cdprogs, or perhaps in a ‘bin’ folder if installed exclusively for Soundshaper) to run under ‘xpmode’: right click on each exe, click on ‘troubleshoot compatibility’, try ‘recommended settings’, accept the suggestion to run in XP mode, then save that. Do this for each exe.
[I’m very grateful to Julian Thomas for finding this solution and providing the above information.
If you find out any more information about this, please post an email to the CDP User Group.
It is been a while since I’ve gone through this, but you also need to set some system variables or something for the pvoc processes, better look or ask on the official CDP forums for details as I’m not going through this 10 page thread
