Soundfont Overwrite Save Error

Post by Yiya »

Hey everyone, I'm back. I was overwriting my soundfont and the error is not written, and and then asks me that I must create a snapshot! :cry:

Message Errors:
*"File was not written"
*"File could not be saved. Create a Snapshot instead?"


So, anyone help me to correct the error

Maybe the SoundFont was locked by the system for some odd reason.

In order to prevent this happening Viena keeps the SoundFont files always in a locked state so that no other processes can alter them, but there seems to be occasions when the OS any way thinks that another process actually have locked a particular SoundFont file. I have randomly seen this happen once or twice, but I have never been able to reliably reproduce it, so if you or anyone else can come up with a way of reproducing the behavior then please share it with me!

In this case the best approach is indeed to save a snapshot, leave Viena and reopen the SoundFont and the snapshot.
Alternatively, "Save As..." should always work.
