Troubleshooting ► Plug-in windows flicker or don't display properly

X-Ray is not compatible with plug-ins that use DirectDraw to create their windows, such as many recent plug-ins by Waves. If a plug-in is not compatible with X-Ray, the plug-in's window will either flicker or not display properly. If you have any plug-ins that are affected by this, you can exclude the plug-in(s) from X-Ray by following these instructions:
Open the Cakewalk Plug-in Manager (Utilities > Cakewalk Plug-in Manager).
In the Plug-in Categories list, select the category that the plug-in you want to exclude is in.
In the Registered Plug-ins list, select the plug-in that you want to exclude.
Close the Cakewalk Plug-in Manager dialog box.
Use Notepad to open the XRayExclude.ini file that's in your SONAR program folder (C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Cakewalk\SONAR <your version> .
At the end of the file, find the [EffectProps View] section.
XRayExclude[type the next available number in XRayExclude list, but without brackets]=[VST ID number, with no brackets, or CLSID number, with curly braces at start and finish]
For example, if the last entry in the [EffectProps View] section was:
Save and close the XRayExclude.ini file, and restart SONAR to implement your changes.
