Exclamation BFD2 Win 7 64bit ProTools 8.0.5 crash FIXED!

BFD2 was working fine in standalone, but when I would enter Pro Tools, it would ask for the data paths again and then crash. After searching the web and fiddling around for 2 weeks I finally woke up to the answer of running BFD2 on Pro Tools without the crashing.

1: Go to your BFD2 FOLDER (( C:\Program Files (x86)\FXpansion\BFD2 ))
2: Right click over the BFD2 (.exe) icon and go down to PROPERTIES
3: Click on the COMPATABILITY tab
4: Click the check box on to "Run this program in compatability mode for" Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
5: Bottom corner "Ok" and you`re set to go!!

Wouhouuuuuu !!! Great info Chapman !! I've been looking for 2 weeks also, didn't get it as I have also a 32bit Vista edition where PT8.0.5 and BFD2 work very fine together...
I just reinstalled BFD2 15 times !! GRRR...

Thanks for sharing this :)
