There is a good change that turning of DEP (Data Execution Prevention settings in Windows) will do the trick. Unfortunately Windows does not allow to turn of DEP for HolmImpulse.exe only, so DEP needs to be turned of completely.

I will try to test this later today (or tomorrow), because I have to leave now.

Thanks again, Wim.

I'm a total noob on Win7 and it feels like using a Mac (read: I'm completely lost). I should feel ashamed as I have a degree in computer science (from way back when the word "Personal Computer" was unheard of) but then again, this might be the root of the problem... I'm still completely biased how a 'puter is supposed to behave...

Turning of DEP didn't help also. Something strange is going on, but difficult to see without source code. Maybe askbojesen can jump in and save the day? I guess the best solution comes from Wintermute: run holm in a virtual XP machine for import and export duties...
Why do you want to use Holm anyway? I believe you are also an ARTA user, and I haven't found anything in Holm that ARTA doesn't do. The best thing about Holm is it user friendliness, but once you get the hang of ARTA, you never go back..

This could possibly solve it:

KB923028 - "Unhandled Error" when you run a .NET Framework 2.0 Remoting - Home

I am not going to try this one, as I do not use Holm anymore, and I am unsure what side effects it could have (only my host pc is Win7, I do not have any VMs of Win7).

If any-one here has a Win7 vm he can easily clone to test this, please let us know the result.

i have a similar problem. The only illuminating discussion i've seen is here:

READ ONLY problems

Read post number 5

Right now i've put aside my win7 64 bit and am using an old xp computer

I've come to despise win 7, and msoft and all its works

Does anyone knows the current development status of HOLM?
Is it abandoned or are we going to see updates (and crash fixes) in the future?

askbojesen, are you there?

Question absolute phase shift problem


I'm using Holmipulse for various measurement, and I got problem making phase measurement between different driver. To use this feature, I follow the "help" button on "time zero locked". But if I redo same measurement again and again, phase is moving (impulse response is moving from measure to measure, making this kind of measurement useless)

I tried several sound card (mostly USB sound card), on several computer, using all possible samplerate. I was not able to get anything stable to perform reliable measurement of relative phase between different component.

Any help appreciated (most other program use a loopback on one input to get a phase reference, but I don't see this option on this program)

strange, I had that problem with speaker workshop, which is why I gave up on trying to get good acoustic measurements with it. Same computer and sound card doesn't have the problem in holm impulse. I can take as many measurements in a row as I like and they always give the same impulse if nothing else has changed.

Are you sure you did the time zero locking properly?

Actually I think that there was a trick I had to use. I think that when doing the initial time zero, I had to run the detect time zero option (I can't check as holm has disapeared off my laptop...) twice. The second time it moved a little and then it remains the same.


I'm not sure if this was the thread
Any intelligence I may appear to have is purely artificial!

Did you set "Keep input/output stream alive"?
