Help with OM installation

When I open my OM7 on Windows a window shows up saying a omaudiolib.dll file is missing. I’ve got to download this .dll file and place it at the directory the window suggests, but the window still appears. Despite that, the workspace window appears after I click on “Ok”, but after creating and saving a new workspace this other “ERROR” window shows up and OM closes at least. Can someone help me, please? Thanks!


Hi Vinicius,

This error is due to the libsndfile.dll
Either it is also missing, or you have an old cpu.
Can you give us the specification of your machine and what windows version you are using?


Hi K,

Could you tell me where should I place this .dll file?
Here is my machine’s specification:

Windows 10 Home Single Language 21H1
Intel(R) Core™ i5-8265U CPU @ 1.60GHz 1.80 GHz
8,00 GB RAM


Here you go:

Hi K,
It worked as well. Thank you very much!
