I ve spent hours to reconstruct why it works with this session...
After i restarted my machine and opened PTHD with a new session, MDWEQ crashes PTHD... But with this one sesseion it works...

Some time later... I found the solution by accident, why it works...

In a session i must load the cranesong Phoenix II Plugin... Then i can load MDWEQ and it doesn´t crash PTHD... It works...Interesting is, that if i close the session and start a new one, I can use MDWEQ without any other plugin...
But after a restart. When i load the session with only mdw, it crashes with an acces violation, cannot read memory error...
But with this workaround, i can use the MDWEQ again...if i use phoenix II one time...
Totally strange, isn´t...

Its ok... Better than nothing... I am glad...

I never had such an adventure with a plugin... I still hope for an update...
Big thanks for posting this!

I emailed George Massenburg with a link to your Post and asked:
"could these 2 Windows plug-ins possibly have a 'common denominator' that gets added by Cranesong Phoenix II, which then allows MDW EQ5 to function properly?

George replied:
"... thanks for the great sleuthing! this is something that none of us could find ...."

I replied:
".... Would really appreciate it if you kept me updated with your progress.
I shall post on the Avid DUC that you are following this up ....."

The only thing, i can say... The only way to use the mdweq5, is to load cranesong phoenix 2 first one time... I tried other plugins like Sonnox,Softube,MCDsp,Plugin Alliance, Metric Halo and the cranesong plugins (Peacock and RA), but no success...
mdweq5 crashes PTHD2018.1... Only Phoenix II is the key to use the mdweq5 without problems...on win10

Strange..., but true...

That's really weird. Is that once per track you want to use MDW on or once per session?

No news, since George’s reply (Post #52).
Thank you for your extra info (Posts #53 and #55), which I immediately forwarded.
I’ll keep emailing. Today I asked George:
“Any progress or news for the Avid DUC? Did David Hill have any suggestions that might help with the Windows fix?”
I will keep watching this Thread and will post any news when it comes.

Was MDW ever updated? Working well with PT12? Or is it abandoned by the dev?
