    Stern ghostbusters vpx issue

    I have installed ghostbusters twice now and same issue. I keep getting failed to load dll error. When I launch the table the backglass comes up and then error. When I test the rom in vpinspa a black box comes up and then same error failed to load dll. Any thoughts? Thanks Tom

    I think you have to install Microsoft visual c++ 2010 and 2012 redistributable packages.

    I recall having the same problem and I think it was because i hadn't run the INSTALL from InstallVPinSPA.EXE in the VPinSPA directory. Maybe do that with yours - it won't hurt to run it again if you already HAVE installed it.

    Your paths and file locations look good, so the only other thing it may be is the Microsoft Visual C++ packages as @63wizz suggested.

    Try the 2013 redist and see how you go.

    Tonight I found the solution for this problem (at least in my setup).

    GB was working fine when I did install it the way it (once) was described but when I did a full new Win10 install I got the .dll loading error, both in VPinspa when testing the table and also (of course then)( when trying to run the table in VPX.

    Tried e-ve-ry-thing messing up my total Win10 and VPX install severall times so that took me 2 days to be back to the statting point but...

    THIS EVENING I GOT IT WORKING!

    The trick is (as mentioned before): install the C++2012 x86 version (although your machine might be running Win10/64).

    You can (safely) find it here at Microsoft:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=30679


    After this (and I did a reboot after installing) the test in VPinSpa worked and after that, also the table in VPX worked again!

    Happy Playing GB!

    now GB is not working again. Rom checks fine but when I load the table it starts loading and then quits. If I deselect external dll on the rom the table loads fine but I am having a different issue with that...

    Did you reinstall everything as per the "instructions" that (I think??) are with the GB files?
