Reason 6 freezing at startup
Is my laptop not powerful enough. I previously owned 4.0 and it worked. I have a Vaio Laptop with 8gig ram and Intel Core i3-350 processor. It freezes at the splash screen when starting up.

i3/8G should be good to run R6. did you install the current download v6.02?
Do you have the right (current) ASIO drivers/etc?

I installed v6.02 and downloaded Asio4all

Still freezing.

Try deleting your preferences file.
Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\Application Data\Propellerhead Software\Reason
Never remember where it is on mac.

Tried that. I start the program and it asks me to accept the license agreement and then goes to the splash page likes it's loading up and then freezes and asks me to force close.

I wonder if it's codemeter. Try reinstalling that lil bugger/check to see if it's the newest version.

I reinstalled codemeter and that didn't work either.

I am going to restore my laptop to factory status and wipe everything and will try installing reason first.

Whoa, going drastic on this one! Well I guess if anything is going to fix it, that will.

DJSlipside 2012-03-26 05:59

That fixed it. Now I am curious to see if it still will be running ok once I install all my other programs (Ableton, Virtual DJ, etc.)

So after I reloaded all my other programs, Reason started freezing at start up again. I am re installing the computer once again and this time I will test out Reason each time I add a new driver or program. There is a weird conflict going on and I will try to pin point it.
