When you try to write a CD in Adobe Audition 3, you encounter one of the following errors:

  • C++ Runtime Library Error 6025
  • Pure Virtual Function Call


Do one or more of the following:

1. Reset your Adobe Audition 3 Preferences File. 

Note: Adobe Audition writes a new preferences file and you lose custom settings associated with the current preferences file. Deleting the preferences causes Adobe Audition to disable checking for DirectX plug-ins and forces reinitialization of VST plug-ins.

To re-create the Adobe Audition preferences file:

  1. Quit Adobe Audition.
  2. Navigate to the following folder C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Audition\3.0.
    Important: If you saved your own custom workspaces, copy the UserWorkspaces folder to a new location.

  3. Delete the entire contents of the C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Audition\3.0 folder.
  4. Start Adobe Audition.

2. Create an Administrator account.

For instructions on creating an Administrator account, see "To add a new user to the computer" in Windows Help, or contact your system administrator.

3. Update your sound card driver.

Many sound card manufacturers frequently update their software drivers. If you haven't recently updated the sound card driver, contact the sound card manufacturer for an updated driver. Or, download one from the manufacturer's website.

To determine the sound card manufacturer and current driver version:

Windows XP

  1. Choose Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices.
  2. Click the Hardware tab.
  3. Choose your sound card, and then click Properties.
  4. Select the Driver tab, and note the Driver Provider and Driver Version.

Windows Vista or Windows 7

  1. Choose Start > Control Panel > System and Maintenance (Windows Vista) or Hardware and Sound (Windows 7).
  2. Click Device Manager.
  3. Click the plus sign to expand Sound, Video, and Game Controllers.
  4. Double-click your sound card, click the Driver tab, and note the Driver Provider and Driver Version.
