Taking this opportunity, there's a uggly bug in the last Sound Forge version in Windows 10, that show error if I try to open an audio file, right clicking context menu, when the Sound Forge is already opened. It works only if Sound Forge is closed.
- Is this with the "Open with" context menu item? - What format audio file types (WAV, MP3, MP4/AAC, other? - Are you running SF Pro 12.1? I can't duplicate this behavior with the aforementioned file types.
That's right! open with option. It fails for any type of flie and I usually work with FLAC, WAV and MP3.
My version is 12.1 (Build 170) 64-bit.
As I can't attached the image, but it shows a screen with "Problem Report" title and saying "SOUND FORGE Pro has stopped working. I already pressed send button of this screen, explaining the problem and how to reproduce it.
I tried 7 or 8 types of files (with and w/o VP-16 running and still cannot repro the behavior and I'm using an up-to-date Win 10. You may try an uninstall-reinstall using a third-party uninstaller that removes the previous SF registry entries, but that may be extreme if you can live with it otherwise. I have not read of this behavior prior and I can only suggest contacting Magix Tech Support, which I am not part of, nor am I an employee of Magix
