Sonar Plugin fo

Here's my problem. I run Sonar Platinum on a Windows 10 64bit computer. I am trying to get the Sonar plugin for the BCR2000 to work properly. I have installed the Sonar plugin according to the instructions. Imported the preset with BCmanager. Sonar recognizes the BCR and is added as a control surface. But everytime I start Sonar, I get a runtime error 438 - object doesn't support this property or method. When I click OK in this error windows, it tries to install Console version 1.1.0 (32bit) according to task manager. But it stops there. The only thing I can do is end the install process. The BCR2000 works for most standard daw controls, but the SHIFT doesn't work, which means I lose several important features (the plugin interface, track select and more). Am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm afraid I can't help you much.

The BCR2000 plugin itself was written by AJ Mayo, and I know almost nothing about its internals (let alone about the Sonar control surface library it interacts with).
My own contributions to the plugin package available from my website were very limited: I tweaked the BCR2000 preset, added a BCF2000 preset, and wrote installation/uninstallation batch files.

The last Sonar version I have worked with is X3, and that was about three years ago in Windows 7, so as you can imagine my memory of the whole thing is rather vague at this point.
I still haven't got round to testing whether the BCR2000 plugin works with Sonar's later editions like Platinum. (This report of yours suggests it doesn't, at least not completely.)

I have installed the Sonar plugin according to the instructions.

Just to be clear: you're talking about the instructions in section 4 of https://mountainutilities.eu/dl/BControl_SONAR.pdf?

I get a runtime error 438 - object doesn't support this property or method. When I click OK in this error windows, it tries to install Console version 1.1.0 (32bit) according to task manager.

This might be related to MSCOMCTL.OCX, the 32-bit Visual Basic library needed for the console window.
Maybe Windows 10 rejects the version of MSCOMCTL.OCX provided in the package, or maybe there is something wrong with prjbcr2000console.exe.
Have you tried executing the commands in InstallBCR2000Control.bat individually from a command-line window? (Of course you might need to run UninstallBCR2000Control.bat first.)
If one of these commands throws up an error, that might explain the situation.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your extended answer!

I have tried all the things you are suggesting.
After having this problem when installing with the batchfiles.
I uninstalled it all and re-installed it by hand (no errors with installing) using the commands in the batchfile and experimenting with system/system32 and sysWOW64, but the problem stays the same.
MSCOMCTL.OCX was also my last bet.

I wanted to use my old BCR as a controller, since my Tascam FW-1884 died this weekend.
I am saving up for a X Touch, so for now I guess I have to do with the controls I can use.

Thanks again! (from the middle of the netherlands :)
