I believe I figured out what’s going wrong with the XP crash reports. Turns out it was rather simple. I’m a little irked about the misleading error message we were getting .
On the machine I recreated it on, it actually was due to being unable to find c++ runtimes. I’ll update my original post to point this out as a dependency. You can get those here:
I do not have any 64 bit machines, so I’m unable to try any out myself. But, at least one chap sent me his crash details, and it should be the same. So, this may also resolve the issues on 64 bit machines.
My XP machine also got a crash on WaveLib, but I’m pretty sure I don’t have a sound card in it.
