We have a PC in our auditorium which is used to record speakers. It is used to play powerpoints and videos, and record. That is all. Have Sound Forge 8.0 installed. Ran fine for over a year with no problems........then this weekend Sound Forge started throwing out an error:
Warning an error occurred during the current operation <this was while attempting to record>
The playback device Microsoft Sound Mapper does not exist.
As far as I can determine, nothing was changed.
Could not fix problem, so downloaded latest Win XP fixes (running SP2)
Downloaded update 8.0d to Sound Forge
Down loaded latest driver for Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 sound card. Installed all 3 and rebooted........
NOW HERE IS THE PUZZLER.....
When I log in as an ADMINISTRATOR, I start Sound Forge and record and it shows sound levels on the SF monitor and successfully records with out any problem. I log out and log in as the USER (restricted account), and no sound levels show on the SF monitor and the error appears.
I gave C:\Program Files\Sony......... FULL CONTROL permissions for the USER and propigated new permissions to al the files. I went to REGEDIT and gave SONY MEDIA SOFTWARE the same and propigated also.
Tried again as USER and same error and no sound levels.
Here one thing....this all worked up until Saturday for the restricter user account........ I need some help. Please advise.
