This is a long shot, but are you enabling the 3D audio option?  This will
cause sporadic crashes of the sort you have observed.  I believe I have
fixed this problem (caused by a race condition in the windows audio input
callback routine) in the rat I'm using for my positional audio system.  If
you're interested, I can provide a copy.

   I really need to a little help with this as its the only thing that is 
   stopping my nide working properly (and its starting to annoy people who 
   want to use the node).

   Toolkit - 2.4 Latest release

   OS- Windows XP Professional SP2 fully patched.

   Soundcard -	Soundblaster Live


   RAT inconsistantly crashes on me, it can occur 5 mins into a session 
   starting or 2 hours. I do not get an error message apart from a not 
   responding message.

   Could anyone please tell me if there is a log file I might look at or 
   obtain so that I can post it to gain a bit of help. Failing that is their a 
   debug option so that I can obtain some sort of idea of what may be happening.

   I beleive it might be hardware/driver related as version 2.3 had exactly 
   the same errors. Help with this would be really appreciated.
