Please give the parameters that you are using in the BASS_WMA_EncodeGetRates call.

Also, is the precompiled WMALIVE.EXE example (in C\BIN directory) working OK, eg. is the bitrate list populated?

Hi Ian!
Also in your example wmalive have the same error!!
The parameter are:      ratesPTR = BASS_WMA_EncodeGetRates(SAMPLERATE, CHANNELS, 0)

I already see in forum and I tryed this but is the same:    ratesPTR = BASS_WMA_EncodeGetRates(SAMPLERATE, CHANNELS, BASS_WMA_ENCODE_STANDARD)

Best Regards

(: JOBnik! :)

I checked on a Vista system just now, and it seemed to be working fine, eg. the bitrate list was populated. So perhaps something has gone wrong with your system config, but if even a fresh install isn't working, then... I dunno. Are you able to encode to WMA on that system with any software?

Hi Ian......

Do you asked me if I tryed encoding WMA with another software? I posted that I already tryed with Windows Media Encoder and don't work: dont' find a codec too!!! 
It's the same question.

I try now to format my pc ......I inform you after this action!
