The official 2.2beta thread (yes THAT one) ๐ŸŽ‰ #windows #forreal

I purchased the Rekordbuddy license and installed it on my machine, but received the error message in the following image here.

I uninstalled and re-installed it and it appears to be showing the same error message. I downloaded the Rekord Buddy Beta MSI file windows file you posted in the forums here. Is this the correct version?

Please note my specs below:

Understood. My apologies.

Awesome will give it a test, am hoping Engine support is coming in future Betas :wink:

Please let us know how it goes. It does not appear to be working on my end though or for any of the users who posted on this forum recently.

Windows Beta - Unable to start Rekord Buddy 4 days ago

I also sent a message to Damien the developer on the forums and attempted to reach him by email but Iโ€™m not getting a response or anyone else to assist with this issue.

Another part of the original post:

I was offsite on Friday. I donโ€™t work on week-end :slight_smile: Iโ€™m on the issue now but betas are never my first priority. First priority is always the released version. Iโ€™m sure you understand.

  • :white_check_mark: Windows: Fixed not finding internal volumes that werenโ€™t home volumes.

It makes a lot of sense to give beta builds a time cap to prevent users of using out-dated betas and keep everything clean and tidy. However, for the Windows builds, there is no alternative yet since there is no stable release yet. Would it perhaps be possible to extend this period somewhat for the Windows beta or to publish new Windows betas each two weeks, until the non-beta version is released? I really love Rekord Buddy for Windows, and it would be a pitty if it cannot be used anymore by the end of next week.

If you are seeing issues when dragging playlists or tracks in Windows, please try to reproduce the problem with this build. It will still error out but it will provide me with precious information. Thank you!
