EAC crashes anytime the program tries to pop up a dialog box to open a file, save a file, or select a directory location. I have only seen this behavior on Windows 7 64-bit machines. I recently re-imaged my laptop to Win7 x64 (it had previously been Win7 x86 home edition) and EAC worked fine with full functionality). And last week I bought a new desktop with Win7 x64 (my previous desktop was WinXP 32-bit). I have used EAC for years and have never seen this behavior before.

If I click on "process wav" or "compare wavs" the normal open-file dialog box pops up but immediately an error message also comes up saying that EAC.exe has stopped working. The program also crashes similarly if I go to EAC Options --> Directories and "browse" to set the default save directory for ripped files. (if I just type or paste the directory location, it's fine). If I ask EAC to "ask every time" where to save ripped files, a dialog box pops up and the program crashes.

I've tried this with 1.0b1, 0.99pb5, and 0.95b4.

I am able to rip files fine if I set the default directory by typing or pasting the directory location.
But the inability for EAC to pop up a dialog box means that I can't use the wav editor, which I use regularly.
For the record, both of my Win7 x64 computers are Windows 7 Enterprise edition.

I don't have Adobe Drive installed, but both computers are using Symantec Endpoint Protection.
Here are two threads that I found discussing similar issues, but I wasn't able to fix anything in my case. (although I haven't tried uninstalling Symantec Endpoint Protection)

ugh. that did it. the first two times I'd seen "visual themes" mentioned when reading some threads, it wasn't clear that it was in an options other than EAC's own options, and so I couldn't find it and didn't follow up on it.
For the record: while EAC is running, start the Windows task manager. Find EAC in the processes tab, right-click on it and choose "properties." Go to the "compatibilities" tab on properties, and check the box next to "disable visual themes."

This allows me to use open/save/set directory file dialog boxes. Still not perfect - I can't fully use the dumbed (well, disabled) sidebar. The program will lock and crash if I click on the "computer" icon in the sidebar of the dialog box. But otherwise it works fine.
Sorry to have missed that before posting.
