We appreciate it's frustrating when things don't work as expected. However, please help us to help you by following these suggestions:

  1. Update - Before trying anything else. Download and install the latest version of FL Studio from here. Your bug may be fixed already!
  2. Simple clear explanation - Explain what you are doing, or trying to do, and exactly what is happening.
  3. Specific information - a) FL Studio version & build number, b) what you are doing and what happens exactly, c) step-by-step instructions how reproduce the problem.
  4. Screenshots - Another great way to demonstrate issues. Get a free screenshot app here. Include images using the 'Attachments' tab, at the bottom of the post edit window.
  5. A video - The best way of demonstrating many issues. Windows 10 includes an integrated screen recorder, see here OR get a free free recorder here. Include mp4 videos to your post from the 'Attachments' tab, at the bottom of the post edit window.
  6. Use English - Google Translate your post. Short simple sentences in your original language translate best. We are happy to work this way, no need to worry.

It does still exist, Microsoft has yet to correct the bug. If you've properly attempted the registry fix noted HERE and it doesn't work, I can only suggest the following:

1. Restart your computer.
2. Open FL Studio.
3. Open an instance of Edison.
4. Open the .WAV files in Edison, one at a time. You she see a large number of slice markers in Edison.
5. Press 'Ctrl + A' to select all.
6. Select the 'Regions' button Image followed by 'Delete' to delete all markers within the selection.
7. Save the file.

Other users have also reported being able to successfully delete the files using the Command Prompt as long as they do not access the folder containing the problematic .WAV files via Windows File Explorer, but we have yet to confirm if that works.
