60. Trouble installing the Roland VSC on Windows Vista.

Applies to: Roland VSC-DXi

Symptoms: You might get the following error when trying to install the VSC-DXi on Windows Vista: "String NOSUPPORT_OS was not found in string table".

Solution: Note that the stand-alone version of the VSC (Roland VSC3) is not compatible with Vista, however the VSC-DXi is. To install the VSC-DXi, you can either install it using one of the more recent Band-in-a-Box® 2007 installers, or (if your BB installer doesn't give you the option to install the VSC-DXi) set the VSC-DXi setup file to Windows XP compatibility mode. To do this:

  1. Locate the VSC-DXi Setup .exe file.
  2. Right-click on it and select Properties.
  3. Click the compatibility tab.
  4. Check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for" box, and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)".
  5. Press Apply, and you can now install the VSC-DXi.

If you still have trouble installing or using the VSC-DXi on Windows Vista after you have set the compatibility mode as explained above, you may need to turn User Account Control off by going to Start | Control Panel | user Accounts. You will need to restart your computer. See this page for more information on DXi synths.
