Iam running Windows XP Pro SP3. I can run Audacity 1.3 Beta and it will start and run fine, and I have uninstalled it and had to re-install it and it will run fine. the problem is when I try to update to any of the 2.X versions whether I try to install over the 1.3 version, or uninstall the 1.3 and do a clean install even on another drive, when I go to start the program I get the dreaded BLUE screen with the error being: BAD_POOL_CALLER, then the dump and restart. Has anyone ever encountered this and found and answer?
It is almost certainly a problem with audio device or other drivers on your computer. See here http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_errors.html#reboot .
