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.
