Ignorace soundfontu sf2

Hi, my friend gave me the bank soundfont.sf2 what he created himself from Profi Banks from IK Multimedia.
Half giga samples only for 128 standard midi banks,
If I want to use this soundfont in virtualMIDISynth 2.5.4 can not load.
Is it a problem that it has a size of 190MB?
Friend uses it in iPad SweetMidi Player and iPad has no problem.
Can you advise?
can i upload soundfont.sf2 for you to edit so it works in virtumidisynth?
Thank you

COuld you please elaborate on this?
Does it show any error message or does it load but won't play anything?
If the latter, than it could be that your SF2 contains samples compressed with a codec that VMS does not support.
Unpack it and rebuild the same soundfont with uncompressed samples.

No it's not, VMS is able to load much more bigger SF2 files than that without issues.

Sorry but no, I'm not able to edit soundfonts and I'm not such an expert.

It loads, but as I confirm OK, the message pops up, see the screen.
Can the bank work? Can it be modified to work?
I apologize for my English, I use google translator.

That error message confirms my suspect: the soundfont file contains samples compressed with an unsupported codec like OGG, FLAC, ...
You must "flatten" your soundfont to uncompressed (WAV) samples, or ask your friend to edit it for you.
