OS Platform is Windows 10 64-bit, with the usual 32-bit Buzz install.

Running the latest pvst builds 1.1.10b build 30.

I've gotten all my other errors cleared up (had some issues with Synthmaster, but it turned out that I had just loaded up the 64-bit dll instead of the 32-bit one) but this is the final nagging issue with getting migrated to Windows 10

Error Message
Title bar just says "Load Error" and the body contains the path to the DLL.

I have 2 sources I could find for this VST (shared for your convenience):

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ggusv1wjnt8yg ... p.exe?dl=0

Just the dll file and manual:

Thanks for the help in advance! And thanks Polac for the best VST support of any DAW.
Perhaps there is a missing dll. Did you try to run dependancy walker to find out which dlls are missing? Perhaps you have to install some older c++ redistributables.

Hi i have noticed that using prevent focus stealing stops me from saving the preset with a different name. When i click on the name to change it nothing happens or press a letter on my keyboard a note is played instead of changing preset name. When focus stealing is off i can change names no problem latest buzz and polac win 7. Happens with every synth i have tried it with

There is a similiar effect I noticed while being in prevent focus stealing mode:
Some synth allow to enter values by typing in drop down menus or text fields or what ever, but you can't in that mode.
May be it's the same issue.

Prevent focus stealing is meant to be used only with selected vsts, if for example the plugin always steals the focus on clicking a knob or fader without a good reason. If a plugin really requires pc keyboard input you have to disable the prevent focus stealing feature of course.

i think it would be cool if the "prevent focus stealing" option was made more accessible so you could enable/disable it quickly. Like maybe make it an entry in the EDIT Menu. It's a godsend for keyjazzing on all those VST that insist on having built in patch browsers that requires mouse clicks (while of course stealing focus.. such a dumb design but seems pretty prevalent...). It's at least as important as all the other options in the EDIT menu (like Oversampling, Run In Separate Process, Freeze etc), so it wouldn't be missplaced there imho.

Yes I also thought about this, I'll add this to the next loader version.

Just reinstalled my machine, and had a few of the usual hiccups you always have through such a process, and I noticed one thing: Polac VST only added a VST folder sitting inside the Buzz folder. It did not discover the real VST folder where all the plugins are installed. I don't know if maybe I missed some setup-procedure of pvst here, that would have caused it to find the real VST folder of the OS?

Did I goof up something or is it necessary to manually tell pvst where the VST folder is?

It only recognizes the folder inside the buzz folder, the default vst folder in programs folder is not recognized if i remember correctly(not sure however, have to check).

I am trying to use kontakt 5 x64 in X64 win7 Buzz latest version Polac latest version. I am having a problem with kontakt instruments not being saved along with the song. They are coming back blank after saving. So any work u have put into the instruments is lost. Especially u spent a couple of hours building a nice rack of instruments. To open as blank instruments is a real bummer. Kontakt keeps crashing as well.

Hi,
I downloaded a vst3 called sori from en.catsnu.com/Project/GugakVSTi.aspx
But the GUI is blank.
Anyone got it to work?

Yes it's a rompler. :D
I think it contains the same sounds as the ones that are below on the same page, but I don't have kontakt, EXS24 or live or whatever is need for those.
Not sure if it includes all of the instruments though.
It installs the sound files in C: which is annoying, but if it's possible to make it work I'll try move the files and use symbolic links.

:mrgreen: Well, seems to work
especially my wish: Hello again, "Sir" Polac. I just have one wish for the Matilde2-Wave-Editor that you have built, could you please insert an option to choose, if the edited wav-files are stored in the bmx or not? This would be fantastic (imo).
esp. Yeah, it is fantastic, 'cause it was already integrated by you in the former Version, thx for not mentioning it when I asked for the Integration of this Feature :D
Anyway, I did some Publicity for this Feature ...
Ah and btw I'm almost convinced you forgot to update the Version number of the loader in the about field.
Does this mean that we grow older?!? ;)

Fantastic to see, that it is still maintained. :)

Is it a lot of work to pack it into an installer?

Updating it in an interval of years means that I have to look for magmavanders video, how to install it.

By the way, it would be great to have buzz with the polac vsti loader and with the patternxp mod in one exe. So it could be easily installed on a fresh system. ;)

If it is to much effort, it would help to have the path info in the zip file?
