VEPro keeps quitting

My VEPro keeps quitting. I have the latest version installed, and I'm using Logic 10.4.2 as my DAW. I used to have a Mac mini quad as my slave and that used to run fine, and VEPro on there never seemed to quit. Now I have moved onto an iMac with more RAM and faster processor. But it seems to quit when running VEPro on the same machine as the DAW. Anyone else having this issue, and know a solution?

Send them a crash report. It’s really just their investigation that can find a solution.

  • check your sharing & networking preferences on the new mac slave. (make sure they're the same as your previous setup)
  • did you assign a static IP?
  • is the iMac's wifi turned on or off?
can you confirm that VEP only quits when you have it running on both machines?

No this is running VEPro on a single machine now, so not a master-slave setup.

ah - sorry, i misread your original post.
but here's another possible culprit: have you checked all your plugin folders (VST, AAX, Components, etc...) for old or unauthorized plugins that might be messing w/ VEP?

Each time I close a project in Cubase, VEP6 (hosted on a server) is crashing. But only if I have a Spectrasonics Keyscape instance in it
Neither Spectrasonics nor Vienna were able to reproduce the problem...

Have you tried an e-licenser update?

Before I did the eLicensor update I tried to run the performance tasks when opening the eLicensor Control Centre and that kept quitting the application., So I updated the eLicensor Control Centre and now when I launch it it can perform the maintenance tasks. So you run VEPro after that and let it sit for a while connected to Logic and make sure its not quitting. Thanks for the suggestions. Will let you know if it works

Hectic, so it can definitely be a specific instrument or library as a problem. I will keep an eye out for that

yesterday I has Vepro crash on my OSX 10.10.5 slave every time I create track with Plogue Bidule and after it I create track with Play 6.07. It starts after I has updated Play from 5 to 6.. But I need this version..

I have that specific problem since years if I use VEP as a local host. I could never fix it. I think it started once I went from macos 10.9 to 10.11. no matter what I tried in the end Kontakt 5 seemed being the culprit in conjunction with the libraries I use. But this was just a wild guess as no one could help figuring it out.

Weirdly the same Kontakt 5 instances and libraries where running fine in logic.

I came to the conclusion not using vep as a local host and if I had to then not using specific libraries with it.

Are you tested to put Kontakt to Vepro in both types, VST and AU?

If this is a recent issue (bug) you should be able to trace back to when you made a significant change, by adding to or any update that you made to you DAW, OS, or extra VST or library added.

I am working with VEPro 5, When UVI and Play 5 was in combination together in VEpro it would crash, but when UVI was by it self or play was by it self or with any other VST like kontackt, or V instrument it works fine.

I can only imagine this is the case with VE6 too, but the key is knowing when you made the change so you should be able to undo it.

Yeah I'm guessing its a local host issue as well, unless can figure out what library is the issue. Im going to try use VST against AU version of Kontakt. I have only bee using the VST version.

I tried that too. I think it all started after Kontakt 5.1 but I’m not sure anymore.

If you running it on a localhost? Im gonna try two things. Im going create a VEPro template on my master machine, and then another on my MacBook Pro as a slave and keep it running for a bit and see if both crash, to just the on on the master.
