It sounds like your project file is corrupted - ?

I don't know. It's a clean fresh system, no infection detected.
For example i can load my target curves without a failure, saving is possible,too.
Maybe i have to re-install the program?!

@ Jeez

Odd indeed. Are these projects built under miniDSP environment?
Can you please send us more details? e.g. email us the project. The likelyhood that it's from another software (e..g non miniDSP like Dirac Live PC/MAC software) would be likely I think..

Sorry for delay.

Yes, i only installed Dirac Live Software, made my measures und saved the project.
Opening ends with this message.
I don´t use other Dirac oder MiniDSP Software with this OS.

I tried to uninstall and re-install it, same!

Now i use my MacBook and all is fine. Saving in the Cloud, re-opening.... that´s even comfortabel.

@ Jeez
Not sure what could the reason here as we've never seen this before.. :-(
Feel free to contact us if you still need help to solve this issue. With the mac, it sounds like it's all good, so hoping you're all set. :-)

I have the same problem. Dirac Live crashed and I can no longer open any projects. Same error message. Tried re-booting my Macbook and re-intalling Dirac, same problem!

Have a horrible feeling I'm going to have to repeat all the measurements unless you have any other suggestions?

@ DNM,

Very odd indeed. Best that you start a tech support ticket with us.
We'd need to get the project files you're using so we can see what's the issue here.

I retrieved my old project files and they open up fine so it looks like the two projects I saved during the same measuring/tweaking session are corrupt. This happened to me a year ago and ever since I've always saved a project immediately after measuring and then see if I can open it before I start to make changes such as target curves and filters.

Having just made changes to my system and not having used Dirac Live for a while, on this occasion I forgot to follow this procedure and its Sods Law that the files got corrupted! It seems Dirac Live can get itself into a state where it seemingly works fine but the project files created are corrupt. Very annoying given how time consuming measuring/listening and tweaking can be. I've wasted 6 hours in my case!

BTW, Dirac Live crashed when I was copying the filter across. I can see the filter in the slot but it doesn't do anything. I'll open a ticket guys and email you the files but don't waste any time trying to retrieve them as I plan to redo the measurements this afternoon. If you could determine why this happens and fix it that would be helpful however. I'm using a Macbook Pro Retina Early 2013 with OSX 10.11.6 and the latest ver of Dirac Live.

An update on this. I still can't save and re-load any projects save under MAC OSX El Capitan ver 10.11.6 on a Macbook Pro Retina Early 2013.

I've removed all MiniDSP software, updated the OS, Java, Adobe Air and Flash then re-installed Dirac Live and experience the same problem.

The only new piece of software installed on the MAC since installing Dirac Live is Roon Audio.

I'm therefore having to run Dirac Live under Windows 10 in a VM Fusion session where it works fine.

Very frustrating as it used to work fine under MAC. DevTeam have tried to help but can't offer up any solutions. If they can't replicate then they can't help it seems. Does anybody else have any ideas what else to check?

Many thanks.
