When, I open Notepad and type in it while Pro Tools is playing. It appears that Pro Tools thinks Notepad is a part of its own programming and tries to get Notepad to access DAE.dll. Guess there is some quirky "focus" "calling" going on in Pro Tools. Notepad kind of seizes up, but works okay after a few re-focuses. How to fix it?
Thanks in advance.

Notepad stops working while Pro Tools is playing
Hi there Lynda M Harvey,
This is a well known bug that appeared a long time ago and is fixed in the newer version of the Pro Tools. To remove the problem, please update your software.
However, there is a quite simple workaround for this – the problem occurs because Notepad from some reason tries to do the playback of the file and to do that needs access to the DAE.dll which is at that moment used by the Pro Tools. You should open your Pro Tools settings and set the playback device in Sounds and Audio Devices to anything but Digidesign hardware.
