    Default Vixen 3.7u1 Build #996 Crashes after any MP3/WAV Association

    Hey gang, I'm new and this is my first time running Vixen on my Alienware 17R4! Here's the fatal log:

    "

    I tried several mp3's and wavs and still crashes. My PC's sound drivers (Realtek Audio-driver 6.0.8816.1) are updated and are working properly. Any suggestions?

    Check what device is set to default for the output on your system. Generally that error points to some odd device being the default.

    I got it working! Per jeffu231' suggestion, I was able to isolate the problem preventing Vixen from associating music files by disabling startup applications, one by one, until it no longer crashed. I found out if I disabled "Alienware Sound Center.exe," Vixen was able to load MP3's with no problems.

    Fix: Rather than rely on Windows update to keep my sound drivers current, I just went directly to the Realtek website to manually download and reinstall the the sound drivers. Now Vixen doesn't crash, even with formerly problematic file enabled at startup. Bottom line: Reinstall the sound drivers.

    Thanks!
