vstscan trouble w/3.3 & winxp

msvcr71.dll & cwdxpx1.dll not found…

don’t know why these files are needed. they don’t sound like any vst effects.

n-track launches fine, but when i do something to initate a vst scan, i get this error message.

i’ve just installed xp pro and tweaked it for audio. seems to running good except for this error showing up.

any ideas on what these files are for and where i can find them?

thanks for any help.



msvcr71.dll is a module containing standard C library functions such as printf, memcpy, and cos. It is a part of the Microsoft C Runtime Library.

Google it up. Download it to your C:WINDOWS\System32 folder and that should fix that one. Do the same for cwdxpx1.dll and you should be good to go.


thanks diogenes, i did end up googling it and found both files.

i did not however find (or overlooked) the instructions to copy them to my system 32 folder. put them in my n-track folder.

thanks again.

maybe this thread will help someone in the future.


This isn’t the first time this has come up.

Similar problems, different files methinks.
