Renoise does not need “libsndfile.dll”. Seems that a VST that you have installed requires it.
If you start Renoise again, you should see a big dialog though, explaining that the startup failed. Then the VST folders are disabled and it should start fine. Have you tried to simply start Renoise again?
If this does not work, take a look at the config file at “C:/Documents and Settings/USERNAME/Application Data/Renoise/V1.5.2/Config.xml”
Open the file with a text editor, then replace
“mVstDirPathIsEnabled” value=“TRUE” and
“mVstDirPathIsEnabled” value=“FALSE” and
Sorry, yes, thats a known (but no new one - 1.5.1 also had this) problem. When switching back/to another fullscreen app, Renoise hehaves strangely. This is already fixed for the next big update. The changes needed for that where to big to be integrated into this small bugfix update…
Geez! I found what it is!!! Looks like I have a Virus!!! It has nothing to do with ReNoise. I`m now trying to clean up my HD. And I KNOW what caused it… It was demo of 3DSexVilla… “game”… and after installing it I had to allow once [thru Firewall] its connection from main server. Next day I bring this demo at work to show collegues what it is and now I have two computers infected. And at my home I have the same problem - missing dll. But it is not that hard as program works after clicking OK…
