2.2.2 spurious plugin reg error message

Just a note for the developers…
2.2.2 seems to have introduced a spurious error message when registering VST plugins.
My video player plugin VidPlayVST32-Audacity.dll registers fine in version 2.1.3.
However, in 2.2.2 it throws…
Effect at C:\Program Files (x86)\Audacity 2.2.2\Plug-Ins\VidPlayVST32-Audacity.dll failed to register:

It does not seem to be a valid error message because the plugin appears successfully in the Effect menu and works just fine.

The problem can be repeatedly tested by deleting C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Audacity\pluginregistry.cfg and pluginsettings.cfg, and doing the Plug-in Manager procedure again.

Other plugins, such as Guitar Rig and Gsnap, are being reported with “failed to register” in 2.2.2

I have logged this bug on our Bugzilla bugtracker: https://bugzilla.audacityteam.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1893

Thanks for the report.


I downloaded the VidPlayVST32 plug-in

I can confirm that the spurious error message does not occur in 2.2.1 - but does in 2.2.2 and the latest 2.3.0 alpha Audacity-2.3.0-alpha-4766583-1
