It's a first try...

Perhaps you should include in that message something to the effect that the track will still load, but may not sound as the composer intended -- in other words, make sure the user knows it's not a critical error.

Oh, and I think that making the default button "No" would also be a good idea. :)

Edit: And while I'm at it... Perhaps see if you can make the KVR link clickable.

Edit: OK, last edit, I promise. Perhaps offer to search for the plugins manually -- either by using a file-open dialog (for each individual plugin, or if there's only one plugin) or by scanning a directory chosen with a directory-selection dialog.

The warning is ok, as is the default no.

That IS actually the default button.
Also, you can't make links clickable when using default MessageBoxes.

Searching for plugins is a completely different feature, but I planned on working on this at some point.

Indeed a nice improvement.
