Possibly..but the end result would still be the same, leaving me with the same issue regardless, as MuLab would still try to include the other dll file during the scan..but would give the same error message..I suspect. (I didn't try actually scanning the whole folder like you suggest.)

I still don't know what that other dll file is for and iZotope support still haven't gotten back to me in answer to my reply. Does anyone reading this actually know what the difference between the two dll files is and what the other one does? They both installed into the same folder..one seems to be your standard VST 2 dll file, which MuLab can scan and load..while the other..well..I don't know what it is or does. I've never noticed any other VST installing a file like this one before, so I can't even make a guess as to it's purpose.

Its just a info message telling you it couldnt scan one, not really an error as such so it shouldnt matter

It's an error in so far as you're trying to scan it in and it won't scan..in other words, it's not doing what you expect it to do. But, granted, MuLab isn't actually doing anything "wrong"..it's merely reporting it can't do what I'm trying to get it to do.

The real thing here is, as I've already touched on, is the installer is placing two dll files into my VST folder, when installers usually one put one dll file there..and there's no explanation as to what that second dll file is for or what it's doing..and, as Jo said, iZotope support's reply was a little obtuse and not really much help at all. Telling me their software doesn't support MuLab and that I should try another host is not addressing the issue..just sidestepping it.

Anyway, thanks for the feedback on this..much appreciated. :tu:

To be precise: In fact MuLab does scan it and it sees that it is not a VST DLL and is informing you about that.

Anyway we agree on the fact that it is an ambiguous situation and Izotope could make it more clean. And communicate more adequate.

Exactly, Jo..and it's a shame there isn't a "thanks" button here (..or is there one and I just didn't see it?), as I would have clicked it for all the help and advice given on this.

Much appreciated. :wink:

Please spread the good vibes by mentioning MuLab and www.MuTools.com in your public track descriptions and by spreading the MuTools news and videos via your social media!

Yes that's the best way, MuLab is quite robust really .
