  • When I try to import a wave file, I get the error "Failed to convert to OGG. Need Win 7+". I do use Windows 7 32 bit, so I'm not sure what causes the error.

    After that I tried to call the conversion tool directly from command line and the same wave file could be converted to ogg and m4a with no problems. I could import both files with no problems then.

    I'm using Construct2 installed in Steam software folder, so I don't know if that could be the cause.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Import wave into an empty project

    2. I can see the cmd line windows opened

    3. The error will be displayed, and the file won't be imported.

    Observed result:

    No file imported

    Operating system & service pack:

    Windows 7 Enterprise N (With Media player stuff installed)

    Construct 2 version:

  • Can you share the exact .wav you used? It is often related to the particular file. Command prompts shouldn't appear during audio import either...

  • Tonight I will put here the wave file I'm using.

    About the "dos prompt": on my machine I can clearly see the command prompts popping up trying to run the converters right after I select the files to insert into my project, and then the error.

    I believe the file is ok, since I could convert them using the same utilities, but from a command prompt.

    It it possible the Windows 7 N is giving Construct a false response from the utilities?



  • Here is the wave file I'm using:

  • It imports to AAC fine on Windows 8, but fails to convert to Ogg, presumably because the file has an unusual sample rate (11025 Hz). Try resampling to 44.1KHz and reimporting.
