Whenever new stable version of foobar is out I install it over old one. I install lots of 3rd party components that enable new file formats/sound formats. 3 of them are foo_midi, foo_input_tak, foo_input_ofr and whenever I install new version of foobar, installer throws that they are incompatible with this newet version of foobar and will be deleted... OK, foo_input_tak and foo_input_ofr weren't updated from some time, but after I put them again in components directory they are just accepted again. I don't know weather they really work as I don't have any TAK or OptimFROG file, but it's my freakness that I want my foobar installation to be potentially able to open whatever sound file I find, anywhere. Anyway - after putting them again and rebooting foobar they appear again in components list in Preferences Dialog. But I completely can't understand why it happens with foo_midi. It happens since first time I installed this component and it happens despite I (nearly) always have the latest version of thic component. Yestarday I updated to foo_midi v. 1.194. 15 minutes ago I updated to fb2k v. 1.2.2 and again foo_midi was thrown out as well as TAK and OFR decoders... What am I doing wrong? Or maybe it should be just like that ? No I got back to restore them into main components folder...

Thanks in advance for any help/explanations.

Wait, i'll try to install it again.

EDIT: Success! I guess the problem was that my pc was living in the future biggrin.gif

Thank you marc2003 for pointing out that possibility and thank you Andreasvb! wink.gif
