Hi there

I recently got jBridge and it worked fine. Except when I tried to load
plugins which have no GUI. Supatrigga and mda f.ex.
All I could see was a frame with nothing in it. :(

So what to do ?

In the folder with my ORIGINAL plugins jBridge creates a file
when I load the plugin into my D.A.W.
This file can be opened in Notepad and it shows different settings
which can be changed.
0 means INactive and 1 means ACTIVE.
Scroll right down to the bottom of this file where you will find
a setting that says:

//Loads the plugin in GUIless mode ( for plugins that have no GUI, when used in a VST host that supports those ).
//You will not be able to access jBridge's options if you change this to 1 without editing the settings file and changing it back to 0
REPORT_NO_GUI 1

All I had to do was to change the 0 to a 1 and then reboot. Bingo :D
Plugin shows with GUI

BTW: I am on windows 7 64 and my D.A.W is MuLab UL

Hope it can help if you have the same problem

Hi SuperFly76

Glad if I could help.
It can be pretty frustrating when things don't work :wink:

Just created a account here on the forums to say thank you. I solved my problems with Bridged plugins not showing the GUI because of this trick.

Will explain more soon when the spam filter doesn't block everything i type.

Thanks again,.
Reversed effects tickles my fancy.

I had to do this long ago. I thought the jbridge guy had officially announced this workaround. Man that's a great plugin. I got years of use out of it though now I'm down to a single plugin that I use it with.

Hello, I'm having this problem and wondered if someone can specify the name of the file in which this change is made? I can't find anything that looks like the likely suspect.

Thanks,
Greg

If you are on windows look here:

C:\Users\"your name"\Documents\jbridge\SettingFiles

Then double click the setting file of the plugin your having problems with, and open it with Notepad, and scroll to the bottom and change the 0 to a 1 and save the SettingFile.

I know this is an old thread, but I thought this was a good place to add my experiences since Google puts this answer near the top of its search.

The No GUI problem can also occur if you are running JBridge as an adminstator, but not your DAW. I usually do run my DAW as admin, but after upgrading to Ableton 11 I forgot to, took me a while to figure it out. Maybe this will help someone else.

Thanks for this! Upgraded to Ableton 11 and lost the GUI again. This worked :tu:
