Sonic Visualizer cant find the vamp plugins
« on: March 11, 2008, 22:05:19 »
Hi Chris,

strangey my Sonic Visualizer cant find the plugin folder. I download the sonic visualizer and copy it to the Program Files folder.
I use a german Win Xp and i created a folder called C:\Program Files\Vamp Plugins. I load some plugins copy the dll and cat file in this folder, but i cant see any plugin.
What im doing wrong?

Mat,

I think the explanation has to do with the language used for Windows.

There is nothing special about the name "Program Files", it just happens to be what the standard Windows program folder is called in English versions of Windows.  If your native language is something else, Sonic Visualiser and other Vamp hosts will look in whatever the programs folder is called on your system.

In the case of German, I believe that means you should create your Vamp Plugins folder inside C:\Programme.  Try that and, if it works, let me know and I'll update the documentation to mention it.

Thanks,


Chris

I tried to install Vamp Plugins to Windows XP. I tried all hints in the Internet without success. Finally i succeeded: c:\Vamp Plugins is my folder to install VP there. I am very happy after 3 days of work to install.

Then you have the http://www.danielleaubert.com/phen375/ review of phen375 system to try.

I put the vamp plugins folder inside c/programme but I still can't see the plugin.
