Since a few days after installing some windows updates I have a problem saving as wave and the Sound Forge 11 Pro gives me .wdp extension even I don't ask for it, it is a fix yet for that ?! I've tried everything but nothing works, Only If I rename the extension through WINRAR. Thanks!
Hi, Yes the file is ok after I rename (even through explorer) it but still I want to do this without any unnecessary due. I had a problem before this with Photoshop 2019 not starting because of missing some .dll but after windows updates was ok, now this issue with .wav . I saw in here the problem persist since 2012 but I never had this problem before an I didn't saw any fix yet.
> I do not recall this as a persistent issue... but my memory ain't what it used to be. In any case, it's unusual and I would say something is arbitrarily changing the extension immediately after the render so the file opens in a specific player.. Try changing the file association so a PCM file <.wav> opens in another player; VLC, WinAmp, MPC ..or Sound Forge for instance.
Hi, rraud, Like I said above, I did everything like that , I am a Dee Jay for a long time and I did specified I know how to do it, the problem is why ONLY in Sound Forge, In Audacity does not do that. Thanks for your concern ! :)
That post that you did not link to, see here, in the forum archive has nothing to do with the issue you are having.
. . . . what is the .dll that make .wav files in sound forge ? . . . . .
Messing with DLL's in particular installing those from 'unknown or non certified sites' is not recommended.
. . . . So the problem is ONLY from MAGIX . . . .
Having searched the Internet for this issue I have found two cases, dating back 10 years or more, of the same issue ie wav files being given a .wpd file extension, however there has been no definitive solution.
This is a specific issue about the SF installation or your PC or potentially other software installed on it hijacking SF built in WAV export dll's
To ask again and expand on my previous question:-
What other programs have been installed just before or after Updates?
Do you have any 3rd party codec(s) or codec packs installed, this may also include other software that installs them?
that's why I came to you, DEVELOPERS, to find a solution.
- This forum is a peer-to-peer discussion group. The moderators are not even Magix employees. You should contact Magix tech support.. but I think this is a unique issue with your PC's configuration. I would try uninstalling the K-lite codecs. I've read of issues with it substituting some of the default encoders in Vegas. Not changing extensions though.
. . . . K-lite codecs but that has nothing to do with SONY, like I've said, ONLY with SOUND FORGE products WAV is corrupted to WDP and that's why I came to you, DEVELOPERS, to find a solution. . . . .
On the contrary - third party codec packs have been known to take over the codecs which have been supplied by the program manufacturer or Windows, they do not replace them however they do interfere by setting themselves as the preferred codec for programs to use instead of the correct codec that the program should be using.
The WAV files are not being corrupted as you have previously confirmed when you correct the file extension the WAV file plays OK, they just have the wrong file extension
" I'VE TRIED EVERYTHING, NOTHING IS WORKING !" I was referring to correct the issue in Sound Forge. I use K-lite codecs for many years and I have NOT a problem with them until I installed Sound forge 12 and 13 trials. From then the problem started.
