Installation problem (winlogon process)

I'm trying to update my release to the new 1.1.1 but it isn't possible 'cause I receive a message to close all running tasks and I must confirm it to continue.
But if I confirm it also closes winlogon then the system can't continue to work and go on blue screen.

Also I tried to uninstall before the previous release 1.1.0 but it's the same.

How to solve it?
I'm using Windows XP SP3

More, I advice to display the release number on mixer and parameters screen.

Thanks in advance

That shouldn't happen, just

That shouldn't happen, just because winlogon shouldn't load VirtualMIDISynth.dll at all.

Could you please double check if VirtualMIDISynth.dll is in really use by winlogon.exe using SysInternals Process Explorer?

I'll get in touch with you by email, then we'll post final solution here...

New version available

I just released version 1.2.0 which addresses your issue (common to WinXP users, see version history) in two ways:

  1. added a black list to deny system processes load the driver DLL (that's crazy, but on WinXP the winlogon.exe process loads VirtualMIDISynth.dll)
  2. updated setup procedure that now allow user to skip locking processes kill step and schedules a reboot at the end (if needed)

Thanks a lot for your precious help on solving this bug.
