Spectralayers Pro7 -- Get compatibility with Win7 Pro?

Post by LeprechaunStu »

I am running a very stable and highly functional studio system.
Using Cubase 10.5 Pro, with an intel 8-core Xenon 8700 Win7 Pro, SP1 machine.
Also utilize SL Pro6 for studio projects with very good results.

I wanted the upgraded functionality of SL Pro7, so purchased it yesterday.
The website says it needs 64B and Win10 OS. I am running 64B, but Win7 Pro.
So, I thought that maybe I could get functionality, since I'm at 64B OS.

The SL Pro7 successfully loaded, launches OK, then shows the basic SL Pro7 home screen, but if you import or load a file for processing,
it gracefully shuts down. Windows dialog box shows Appcrash.

Any way I can get SL Pro7 to run on the Win7 Pro, SP1 machine?
I have very stable and consistent performance with the Win7 Pro OS, and
a changeover to Win10 would be very laborous.

Thx - Steinberg is the Best!
Very grateful for any help on this.

No guarantee here, but let's see what caused the crash and if it can easily be fixed.
Can you send me the crash dump located in Documents\Steinberg\Crash Dumps
and the logs file located in %appdata%\Steinberg\SpectraLayers 7.0\logs ?

You can send it to contact(at)divideframe.com or in PM.

You have to make sure your graphics card supports opengl 3.3 if it doesn't spectralayers will crash when you open a file or create new project.

Hi,
I purchased SL Pro 7 and encountered same problem in Windows 7 x64.
SL Pro 7 can startup. But when do "New Project" or "Open", suddenly it crashes.

My NVIDIA graphics card supports OpenGL up to 4.6.
SL Pro is 7.0.20 Build 249.

Can I resolve this issue?
