If MEAP does not have administrative privileges it may sometimes be unable to send messages and key commands to Cubase or Nuendo and MEAP may therefore seem to be doing nothing.
On some Windows systems you will have to make sure you are running MEAP as an Administrator. An ordinary process (a process run as a standard user) can not interact with or exchange information with an admin process. So if your audio application is running with elevated privileges, MEAP cannot interact with it.
As of version 7.67.050 you can now simply start MEAP by selecting the shortcut “MEAP (Run as Admin)“.
Or make sure you set MEAP to Run as Administrator. You can do this by Right Clicking on the MEAP short-cut and selecting “Run as administrator”.
You can also make this permanent by Right Clicking on the shortcut and selecting Properties > Compatibility > Run this program as an administrator.
In older versions of Cubase and Neundo it was possible to tell the audio application to get the name (description) of the selected marker and use it as a file name.
Unfortunately this feature was taken away by Steinberg and there is no way to make this work with Cubase 5.x, Cubase 6.x and Nuendo 5.x – For these applications you must use Default File Name in MEAP Main Options.
Asking MEAP to find the marker names (descriptions) from Cubase 5.x 6.x or Nuendo 5.x may be possible in the future but it is very complicated, especially to make it reliable. It will also mean totally changing the way that MEAP currently selects markers. And it will mean that there are even more specific requirements to the way the screen is set up than there already are.
So, for now the best option here is to keep a small text file list of your marker names and rename the files after your export.
