Downloading Kyma 7 Folder crashes at the end of install; Invalid Arguments

0 votes

I installed the Kyma 7+ Software onto my Windows 10 64-bit machine. When Kyma downloads the "Kyma 7 Folder," It freezes on "About 2 seconds remaining" and returns an "Invalid Arguments" error, featuring text I will post below.

I have tried installing to a different folder with no luck.

Kyma has trouble opening windows when I'm inside the software. Sometimes a tool like the spectral analysis will open with a "vcscomponentforevensourcenamed" error, but most of the time I click on functions (New, Open, Save, etc) in any of drop down menus from the top and nothing happens.

Suggestions are very welcome. Thanks!!

A portion of the error text:

Kyma encountered this unexpected condition:  Arguments invalid

Hi Kay-robinson,

You could try to install Kyma in another location. F.i. Desktop. Make a folder there.
After installment Kyma will start up properly.
Close Kyma. Go to the other Kyma folder. I think in Documents.
Delete this folder first and then place the Desktop Kyma folder in Documents.
Start up Kyma and it will ask for An Overview.kym. Go to the Documents/Kyma folder/Kyma Sound Library and pick the file.
Hello Roland! Thank you for your response.

I've tried installing both Kyma and the "Kyma 7 Folder" to a variety different folders including the Desktop and I am still receiving the same error.
Hi Kay, I'm sorry to hear this as I assumed the problem was in your directory.
Please contact Symbolic Sound Carla or Kurt.
I hope you will run Kyma a.s.a.p.!
