I was so excited about ALK2 coming to the Windows platform that I had bought the software already 3 months ago, although I did not have the computer yet to get it run... And there it is, ta da, a nice Lenovo Thinkpad T470s with Intel Core i5 @ 2,6 Ghz, 12 Go RAM and an integrated GPU Intel HD Graphics 620.
I have already installed Cubase 10, it is running fine. Presonus Studio One is also running fine.
But I cannot get ALK2 (v. 2.2.5) to run. The installation went well. until I launched the software. I first got an empty white screen, with just the menu on top (ALK2/file/Window/Help). It took some time for a black screen to appear, asking me to choose between "begin trial" and "activate". First I coulnd not click on anything. At least not immediately. But again, with patience, I was finally able to enter the activation code.
After many tests it looks like that some actions in the software get lagged. Everything is slowed down to a point that it seems frozen. There must be a conflict somewhere. I tried to check the settings. I noticed that the Audio Driver (curently "Windows Audio") should be set to ASIO, but I cant get the drop down menu to open.
The Task manager does not reveal any touble with the computer: no high CPU load, no high GPU load, no heat.
At this point I am stuck and would appreciate support from anyone who might have faced (and solved) a similar Problem?
