Why would I need to Uninstall & Reinstall my StudioLive-AI drivers?
- My Universal Control-AI crashes when I launch it
- My VSL-AI window is not opening properly or not opening at all
- My Universal Control-AI launch window does not show driver information
Sometimes drivers do not install properly and can cause numerous issues with the functionality of your device. This is usually caused by certain files not being overwritten properly, or older files from previous installs causing conflicts. In most situations, you can just run the Univeral Control-AI installer and let it overwrite the previous version. Sometimes though, it is necessary to manually remove all traces of any Firestudio, Universal Control or Universal Control-AI related files that you may have on your computer before doing a fresh install of Universal Control-AI.
