You must run midi-config-backup.bat immediately after VMS install-repair completes.

After that, you could open the generated backupXX.reg files with a test editor (like Notepad++ or Notepad) and check if they contains a line with midi...=VirtualMIDISynth.dll

Re: VirtualMIDISynth becomes unavailable and keeps prompting for reinstall

Hi,

I would like to report that Serg (the current maintainer of Munt) has successfully created a driver that survives reboots in new Win10.

Previously Munt had the same problems as VMS.  Maybe it's important to note that he has done this without purchasing any cerificates to sign the driver. The only problem is that as an unsigned driver it has to be installed in test mode of Win10. The important part that is relevant to VMS is the modified inf file.

More info can be found in the same topic on Vogons.

Thanks for the link ;)

Disabling driver signature is not an option for me.

It's an "hackish" workaround ok for tech users, but a perfect recipe for a disaster for all the other ones; VMS is targeted to musicians...

I've read the whole thread and found a link to MS community thread where the same issue has been reported (nobody cross-linked me and I haven't seen it yet).

I've posted my reply there.

It should works. After that, you have to run the restore batch file at every restart.

I also have this problem since I updated windows, hope you can fix it asap.

This issue is making me use the low quality Microsoft GS Synth more than what i'd like haha

Cheers
