"Exception: Floating point division by zero"

Post by nomad26 »

I am using version 5.20 on Vista. When I tried to open a mp3 file, an error message showed up saying

Exception: Floating point division by zero.
[Address: 0x637B414A, Module: QuickTimeAudioSupport.qtx]

The software has been working fine. It's just recently that this error message shows up.

Any solutions???

Thanks for helping..!

Try updating to GW 5.55 and see what happens.
I don't want to read the manual either, but I'm not the one with the problem.

I see a "Quicktime" inside the message, it could be a mp3 tagged with iTunes. I had some problems with some files, but removing the cover art in iTunes beforehand did help.

Upgrade iTunes or QuickTime as well. There was a version of the Apple QuickTime decoder that caused floating point errors.

If that still does not help, you can use GoldWave Setup (from the Start menu) to check the "Ignore floating point errors" box.
