After installing the Pro Tools LE 8.0.3 Windows update on my PC (XP pro service pack 3), I found that I could not open Smaart (version 6.1). The culprit turned out to be an ASIO driver named ElevenRackAsio.dll. Since I am not using or plan on using the Digidesign Eleven Rack now or in the foreseeable future I simply removed (uninstalled) the driver from the registry. After removal, Smaart will now startup and run simultaneously with Pro Tools as long as Pro Tools is started up first. If Smaart is already running and I try to open Pro Tools, the following message is displayed and Pro Tools closes. “Digidesign hardware is in use by another application. (-1133)”
I have yet to upgrade my Mac Pro Tools setup. When I do if the same problem occurs, I’ll post back.
