Vision cannot load Library, DMX Providers / Artnet

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone


After a clean install of a new system and Vision, I get a message, that Vision cannot load library from my C drive. 

See attached message. 


Have any experienced this problem? 

I am running on a newly build system, with Ryzen 9 5950x CPU

It looks like the latest Vision Windows installer is adding some additional unnecessary files to the DmxProviders folder. We will work on getting the problem corrected but till then.


Navigate to the DmxProviders folder in the install directory, typically C:\Program Files\Vision 2021\DmxProviders.



  • Artnet.exp
  • Aetnet.lib
  • Multiinput.exp
  • Multiinput.lib
  • sACN.exp
  • sACN.lib


The DmxProviders should ONLY contain

  • 32
  • app_updater
  • Artnet.dll
  • grandMA.dll
  • Hog3.dll
  • HogPC.dll
  • Multiinput.dll
  • sACN.dll

These files have always been extra. We made a change to make it easier to add more providers and not Vision is trying to use these extra files as DMX providers.
