Read the whole post carefully; you need to install some additional resources.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but this isn't working on Windows 7 here either... Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the VB6 redistributable isn't supported on Windows 7.

Extracting them using the MsgPlus Sound Pack Extractor should hopefully work.

Did you installed the VB6 redistributable package and the COMCTL32.OCX as explained here?
Can you tell me exactly what error messages you get and when you get them?
Can you also try to run Choli's MsgPlus Tweaker and see if the same problems occur?
(I don't have Win7 yet myself, so I can't test this; it does work perfect on Vista though)

It looks like some of the stuff the COMCTL32.OCX needs is missing in Windows 7. As for the VB redistributable, as it's not supported in 7 it doesn't seem to install properly.

quote:It is supported, just as COMCTL32.OCX is.
(note: remember that to install stuff like that you always need to do it from an elevated command prompt in Vista and above).
What exact error messages do you get?
And what are the exact procedures you do, can you describe them as detailed as possible?
Do you have a 64bit or 32bit version and what is the language of your OS?
As soon as I have Win7 I can debug it myself, but for now I can't... sorry

Well, the download page for the VB6 package doesn't say Windows 7 anywhere (or Vista for that matter)...and if it's shipped with 7 as your link says, shouldn't it be just working?
And upon running MsgPlusLibFix, this error comes up, regardless of whether I elevate it:
Running the VB6 setup elevated did nothing different. I have since fixed the problem by simply adding back the .dat files the normal way, with no real loss of quality.

quote:Doesn't mean it is not supported. Those download pages from MS only show you the basic supported OS as it was when the file was put online for download. It almost never says anything about extended support, extra KB articles, updates, etc, etc. Such download pages are also seldom updated.
quote:it says it is supported, it doesn't say it is shipped with it though.
quote:Normally you don't need to run MsgPlusLibFix with an elevated account. However you do need to put the OCX in the correct path (not the virtualized path which Vista or 7 uses) and registered from an admin account or elevated command prompt.
But "the normal way"? What way is that exactly?
Note: the method used by MsgPlus!LibFix is exactly the same method Plus! uses when it deals with sound files, and the only way to do it properly (but in an automated fasion).
And what do you mean with "no real loss of quality"? There shouldn't be any quality loss at all since you're dealing with raw data. You should not manipulate the sounds themselfs. The files aren't even touched. It should be a matter of rather simple register manipulation, nothing more.
If you meant you imported them back with Messenger Plus! as MP3 sounds then you will loose quality as you will effectivly make a new MP3s out of existing MP3s. Not a good idea...
