    Question GigaStudio trouble initializing error 218

    hi there! i don't know what to do here, especially since i can't find any official support.

    i just started getting the "trouble initializing error 218" error when i try to run GigaStudio. it asks if i want to run diagnostics, and if i do, it appears to error repeatedly before becoming unresponsive--i can't select the diagnostics text, and all i can see without being able to scroll is "GigaStudio Diagnostics v2.54.00" and my memory, OS (XP), and drive sizes.

    If you've installed Internet Explorer 8, be sure to uninstall it.

    really? that's not my usual browser, but i'll check. what does IE8 have to do with GigaStudio though?

    My recommendations:
    Once you get IE8 out of there ( you'll see it in Add / Remove programs )
    turn of Automatic Updates in control panel. Also go into Security Center and on the left choose "Change the way ... Alerts me" and un check automatic updates.

    why would IE8 hinder GigaStudio's initialization?

    screw gigastudio--wish i'd have known about LinuxSampler for windows before now. that project rules. anyone with similar problems who stumbles on this thread should google that immediately.
