I can't tell if this has been resolved, but here is my experience. I have tried to follow discussion of this problem but I also found a workaround. I am running Windows 8 on a Dell XPS8500. I found that if I opened a new folder on the desktop and populated it with the audio clips I wanted to use, VideoWave would still fail and crash Creator NXT. But, if I took an audio clip from the first project and added that to the folder on the desktop, there was no failure. I can't explain the phenomena, but if I removed the audio clip from the prior project, it would fail again. I took care to clear the folder fom the desktop before I started a third project and following the same process, I had no problem.
