....It was perfect! Everything running smooth. Then I decided to change the style. When I did so, I get a window offering to update the style list. I accepted. The style list updated without a problem, AND the melody entered as notation stopped working again .

I tried all the steps we tried before but with no luck.

I did look in systems and I can confirm that I have a 64 bit operating system.

Then I followed the Options/Midi Audio driver set up path and got the usual message that "No DXi synthesizers are installed.You can install the Coyote GM Wavetable synth from the main Band-in-a-Box screen Help Menu". But Coyote is installed because it was present and working 15 minutes ago, before the styles rebuild.

Then I ignored the error message and continued on to the main Midi Audio drivers screen and opened the add VST screen. There I tired to select the CoyoteWT.dll plugin under the edit drop down menu and I got the following error message.


Does that error make any sense?

Why would the melody in BiaB stop working on two occasions when it was working fine for several years and I didn´t make any changes in the computer?

I feel like I´m lost in a labyrinth. I hate to ask, but any ideas????

Hi again!

Firstly, the reason for the error message is that CoyoteWT is a DXi soft synth and not a VST one. The way that you tried to load it was using VST management tools and so an error mismatch occurred.

See if this helps...

1. Close BIAB

2. Right-click on the BIAB startup shortcut and select "Run as administrator" -- click on OK/Yes when Windows asks for permission.

(Sometimes "Running as admin" solves some problems. If that's the case for you, we can set this permanently.)

Does that help?


Out of curiosity, could this problem be created by antivirus software? I always exclude the \bb and \Realband directories from be checked by AV sofware.


If still no joy, see if it's possible to load CoyoteWT using the DXi tools.

These are found by....

1. Opening the VSTi soft synth window that you have in your image above

2. Select the "Default Synth" -- #2 on the image below

3. Select "Options" (#3)

4. There are a number of tools in this window that could help. I'd start with those I've numbered #4

Another thought...

Close BIAB.

Seeing that you have version 2017, go to the \bb folder and locate a file called "Maxpluginstoscan.txt".

Rename this file to "Maxpluginstoscan.old.txt".

This will force BIAB to make a new version of this file and it is one that has caused issues in the past.

If I missed the recommendation to try Return to Factory Settings, I apologize. But Noel's interesting suggestion about the file keeping track of plugins should be tried as well. It would not be reset by Return to Factory Settings, to my knowledge.
