Message with startup

I´ve got following message everytime with startup :astonished:
“VST Sound library not found”
But when I click on “Locate” the files are there
Then I click “Ignore”, and it´s ok

Hows to fix the problem?



What library specifically is it?

Program files\Steinberg\Cubase 9.5\VST Sound\FCP_SMT_001_Cubase.vstsound


When you locate it, and select the folder, what happen then?

If I select and open the file I came back to the same message.
But if I click on Ignore I can continue to my projects without problems (I think so far).

So it´s seems ok but a little bit annyoing everytime I start Cubase.


Isn’t it asking for the next file?

Re-install Halion. That will solve the problem.

…From the Full installer.

Yes I´m thinking about that because of Halions sometimes strange behavior.
I´m also thinking of uninstall all previos versions of Cubase, maybe they making problems
and after that I install a fresh new Cubase 9.5

Thanks anyway for fast response! :slight_smile:



If you uninstall previous Cubase versions, trash also their preferences folder.

Did this ever get fixed? I’m having the exact same problem now after a windows update.


Have you tried to reinstall Cubase?

Make sure you:

  • Download the Full Installer.
  • Unpack the ZIP file and install from the unzipped folder.
  • Install from the setup.exe.
  • Install as administrator.
