I purchased Wavepad 10.16. It appears to be a Master Edition - which is not what I ordered. I wanted the standard edition. But the code I was given was accepted so I presumed it was the correct version.
The software crashes constantly. The log report "object was probably modified after being freed".

No difference. Just to let you know exactly what I am doing. I launch the software. Select 'Open file'. It imports the mp3 file I want to edit. Event if I do nothing to the file and then save it (I have tried all the options: joint, mono, stereo etc) I get the same message: Error loading file. Wavepad could not open the file "......mp3" for editing
Expert:  Robert H replied 8 days ago.

I’m so sorry to hear about your issue. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

WavePad will not open my file(s) properly.

I am using mp3 which is compatible with Wavepad.
I cannot find an options button on the Home tab. Only New, Open, Save, (Undo, Redo, Cut, Copy and Paste), Load CD, Bookmark, Batch, Silence, Volume and Preferences. What sound card should I be looking for?

Thank you. The video is clear and is what I have been doing but it does not solve my problem.
I cannot save any file without an error message.
Where is the 'sound card' option? Is it relevant?
