"Server creation failed" when opening AWE Designer

I'm getting this error whenever I open AWE Designer:

 

After this happens, I'm not able to see any of the default objects in the layout view (I/O, interleaves, etc).

 

I've tried opening while connected to a USB target & running natively on the PC, but I still see the same message.

 

I've seen this error on 2 versions of AWE:

6.18.01 Standard

6.17.B03 Standard

 

Thanks,

Patrick

Hi Patrick,

 

This error can occur when installing new Designers and the new Designer conflicts with the registration of a previous version. To fix it you need to re-register the AWETalkToGUI.dll. 

Open a command prompt as an administrator and navigate to '<Audio Weaver install dir>/Bin/win32-vc100-rel'. Then issue the command 'regsvr32 AWETalkToGUI.dll'.

It's possible you may also need to re-register the .dll in x64-vc100-rel as well. 

 

Let us know if there's anything else.

-Axel
