Missing Plugin Error
« on: October 10, 2018, 01:00:47 »
A while ago, I installed a free LUFS meter VST, but I wasn't happy with it, so I recently deleted it from the folder I keep all of my .dll plugin files in. Well, now every single time I open the program now, it says this:
Problems were encountered with plugins:
Unable to find C:\ [insert path here] \LUFSMeter.dll

Worst of all, the error dialogue box hides itself under the splash screen with no way of accessing it, and the splash screen just sits there, waiting for you to close the error! The only way to close the two of them is to Alt-Tab away to something else, then into the error dialogue.
Is there a way to get it to stop looking for LUFSMeter.dll on launch?

You should be able to remove it from the mptrack.ini file directly, but if you go to the general tab, and press the add plugin button, does it show up there? You may be able to remove it there too.

That worked! Though I think in a future version (depending on how much of a priority this is/how easy this would be to implement), the error should have an option like this:
We couldn't find [plugin filename]!
