Virtualmidisynth v.1.12.0 App Crash

I have been using Anvil Studio for 10 years and now am on version 2015.1.1.0 just released. I up dated coolsoft virtual midi synth to v.12.0 but it causes Anvil Studio to crash several times during sequencing a song. The message that comes up is APP Crash, Fault Module VirtualMidiSynth.dll.

I am using Win7 64bit. I never had the problem with crashing with the previous version of Virtual Midi Synth on Win7 64bit although the update v.1.12.0 is described as having an update to stop crashing with 64bit programs.

Re: Virtualmidisynth v.1.12.0 App Crash

I was able to reproduce the crash in my side with Anvil Studio 2015.01.12.

It happens when the MIDI device is opened and immediately closed.
Starting from VirtualMIDISynth 1.12, device initialization is asynchronous to let the MIDI client go on without hangs.
Sadly, a very quick OPEN-->CLOSE sequence could lead to a crash if the CLOSE is called before VirtualMIDISynth it completes its initialization.

Please test the attached beta version and confirm it fixes the bug.

UPDATE: attachment removed, version 1.12.1 released.

Glad it works, thanks for reporting it.

I'm waiting the feedback from another user for another similar bug to release the update... stay tuned ;)

Re: Virtualmidisynth v.1.12.0 App Crash

I just released a minor update (1.12.1) with this fix.
