This happen to anyone else?

I installed Serato, it worked for a few minutes, then began to crash, I uninstalled and re-installed it and it worked for one full evening. The next day I went to use it again and it crashes every time it is opened after a few seconds (and seemingly randomly - i.e. not related to any particular button). It doesn't seem to matter if the turntables are hooked up or not.

I've just updated to the latest version, perhaps it is related to the fact that I don't use Itunes or one of the other crash bugs this fixes. I'll report back later!

Yup, the upgrade fixed it 100%.

Glad to hear everything is ok Ian, just a note, please read the FAQ before posting.

Of course (as with all software) make sure you have the latest versions of all software involved:

Serato Scratch LIVE
Windows Updates
Mac OS Updates
Latest BIOS and motherboard drivers

Please make sure your system is up to date before asking for help here.

I did read the FAQ, but thought I had the latest versions of everything as I had bought it that day. Ah well, I should have checked : )
