SCAN TUNE DOESN'T WANT TO PLAY

Post by G4uvz » Sat Apr 18, 2020 11:33 am

My Mini tune works fine in normal mode and also with the excellent M0DTS program

However I thought that I would try the scan tune as an alternative ..3 days later I still cant get it to work!

I am using Windows 10 64bit machine

I have downloaded program and VLC multiple times
but always end up with the same issue.

I get the 'usual' Minitune is loading page come up and then a box opens underneath the main box and you can just see an OK option
see attached images ..my O level French tells me that something is looking for a registry key?

Clicking OK then takes me to a ..make sure you have VLC loaded OK ...I have the 64bit version loaded which was auto seleted when I download the executable file

Finally I get the VLC library not found message

Mine works fine but only with the 32bit version of VLC. Suggest you remove the 64 bit version and install 32 bit.

They are loaded in different locations and I guess Scan Tune can't find it.

When you go to the download page https://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Click at the right side of the orange download button and select Windows from the dropdown menu. Don't select the next option Windows 64.
