2.0 Installation, Uninstall

2.1) Installation

Use Program Manager to create a new icon for GoldWave.

Copy the following files to your WINDOWS directory:

Search your system for the file BWCC.DLL. If you find any
copies, check the date. If the BWCC.DLL file included with
GoldWave is newer, replace all old copies with the one
included with GoldWave. You should restart Windows to remove
any old copies from memory.

2.2) Uninstall

Delete the following files from your WINDOWS directory:
Other files are listed in section 4.0.

Generally, BWCC.DLL should not be deleted from the
WINDOWSS\SYSTEM directory as it may be required by other

3.0 Important Additional Notes

3.1) GoldWave requires a minimum of a 386 processor. A 486
processor is recommended.

3.2) VOC files are saved using version 1.20 format.
GoldWave will only use the older VOC format if the sound
is mono 8-bit with a sampling rate less than 23000Hz.
If a VOC file saved by GoldWave becomes incompatible with
your Sound Blaster driver:
1)Open the file in GoldWave
2)Make sure the sampling rate is less than 23000Hz.
If it is not, use Effects | Resample to convert
to a lower sampling rate.
3)Use File | Save as to save the file as mono unsigned
8-bit VOC.
If possible, you should get a copy of the latest Sound
Blaster drivers (

3.3) GoldWave now makes use of more of the RIFF WAVE
standard file format. New chunks such as the 'cue ' and
LIST 'adtl' are included to store cue points. These chunks
are stored at the end of the WAVE file to minimize problems
with some programs that do not correctly read/ignore WAVE
chunks. Cues are stored only in Wave files. If you
encounter problems with other programs, report the problem
to the developers of the other program.

3.4) In RAM storage mode, the largest file you can open
depends upon how much RAM you have for Windows. This does
not include virtual memory. Use Hard disk mode when
editing large files (Options | File).

3.5) Colour configuration has been removed temporarily.
It will be reintroduced in a future version.

3.6) In order to get the scope working correctly, you might
have to change the positioning method in the Device Setup
dialog box.

3.7) GoldWave includes a recent version of BWCC.DLL
from Borland. GoldWave checks for this version of BWCC.DLL
(or a newer one). If you get an error message, you should
delete any older copies of BWCC.DLL or replace them with the
one included with GoldWave. You may have to restart Windows
to remove the older BWCC.DLL from memory. Only one copy of
BWCC.DLL is needed and should be kept in your WINDOWS\SYSTEM

3.8) If GoldWave crashes during playback or recording,
contact your sound card manufacturer to obtain an updated
driver. Some drivers are available from the World Wide Web.
The GoldWave WWW home page has links to some sound card

3.9) Updates for GoldWave can be downloaded from the GoldWave
WWW home page:
