Beta Version crashes everytime I try the get a noise sample

Any ideas how I can fix this. I’m trying to reduce fan noise, but it crashes completely every time I try to get a sample.

Oh dammit. You’re having the same problem as a few others (myself included, but only my computer at home).

Your best bet at this point is to try using a different computer if you can. I don’t think anyone has figured out what causes this crash.

Ok, thanks, I will try another computer and hope I can make it work. Thanks so much for that tip, I would have never thought to try another computer. I have six available, so at least one should work huh?

I hope so. But until we figure out the common factor between the computers that crash and those that don’t it’s impossible to say. But you’re right, trying can’t hurt.
