Start Screen Not Working Since Update **solved**

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Please excuse my ignorance.  What is the Star screen?  What are you selecting that opens old Cakewalk pages?  What is supposed to open when you make a selection?

When You Open Cakewalk it shows a big dialogue box where they show your recent projects and templates and stuff. That's the start screen

@dubdisciple You could try renaming Offline.html  in %APPDATA%\Cakewalk\Cakewalk Core\   to Offline.html.bak

It should get recreated from scratch when you re-open CbB.

You should try to work out why this has happened though... do you have OneDrive enabled? I could have re-synced from an older machine maybe ?

Check your OneDrive configuration, and consider excluding this directory... or at least make sure everything is synced and up-to-date.

Ohhh.   Hmmm.  So this just made me think that the start screen is customized by html code.  Or is it?  ......wink wink......wink.....muwahaha muwahahaha!

Perhaps the Star Screen is waiting in the sky and would like to come and meet us. Probably thinks it would blow our mind, though.

I say let the children use it.

@dubdisciple, thank you for correcting the typo.  I hope my remark didn't come across as smart or sarcastic as that was not my intent.  Sometimes I don't see the forest for the trees.  In this instance the typo drew my attention enough I did not understand your question.  That's why I asked for clarification.

I'm glad to discover the issue is resolved.

I did not think it came across in any sort of negative way.  From all the posts I have read, you come across to me as very respectful of others. So, this:

Possibly a typo: Start screen, maybe?

was also intended as being respectful (not sarcastic or negative in any way).

Still a mystery why an old web home page would show up where it was clearly never intended to.

I understood you were just politely asking for clarification.  Thanks again :)
