Does Sound Forge 10 work with Windows 10?

I'm running Sound Forge 10 on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. Wave Hammer, which I use all the time, inserts an odd beep every few seconds. The beep varies in length and pitch, but it is quite annoying. This did not occur when I was running Sound Forge in Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

Could it be in demo mode?

Correct about the demo mode. Sound Forge will have to be reactivated in order to get it out of demo mode, then the beeps will disappear.

I have windows 10 and encountered the issue where it would tell me to register the product again, and once I did it would not come up, it would work if I opened it under "run as administration" but I heard others that did that did have all functions, I saw this fix in a separate forum, I tried and it far

The fix:

- Open regedit
- Find the key named ''HKEY_USERS\XXXXXX-XXXX_Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Sony Creative Software"
- Delete the key
- Close regedit
- Soundforge now works again

Note : in the key name above, 'XXXXX-XXXX' is a number which may be unique to your machine.
please be careful when editing the registry

works good here. Actually it is running better but I have other issues with preset chain save files that corrupt because one plugin is missing.

looks like i need to do this regedit advice.... as this morning i clicked on the faithful icon that has worked for vista then 7 upgrade and for 3 weeks of w10 uprade and suddenly it wants to run an admin wizzard that never does anything... (rightclick run as admin does launch app)...

but i cant find this "key" - is there a short cut to the place do you know?
---> (for a detailed line by line how to get there list... i missed the important "classes" bit of the DTYJR's correct help given above...)

Have tried that suggestion and every other one I could find so far including suggestions from Support. Still getting "Not Responding" . Must be some conflict with some driver/codec somewhere in Windows 10? Worked OK through Windows 7/8.
I've downloaded the Sound Forge Pro 10 as trial and it is also "Not Responding"
I've downloaded trials of 3 other audio editors and they all run fine.
I'd rather not have to learn another audio editor, but the lack of response from Support, other than do a clean reinstall and clean the registry, has me floundering.

I just bought and install the program and got a not responding as well on windows 10. Downloaded update, and same results. I finally got it to open without crashing or getting the not responding error after I changed the startup settings to compatibility mode for windows xp sp3.. If I tried windows 7, or 8 compatibility mode it would not respond. I see this program was developed in 2013. I am quite disappointed that sony has not come out with a newer version or at least with an update that was current. We should not have to jump through hoops to get a program to work.
