I am wondering why it did not create an empty instruments DB (and accordingly the .linuxsampler directory) there automatically. As far as I can remember it did that automatically on Windows in the past. Are you running it in the Windows 10 sandbox? Your user name is "live"?

Anyway, for now try to create it manually. Open a command line window and then use

Code: Select all
linuxsampler.exe --create-instruments-db "C:\Users\live\.linuxsampler\instruments.db"

to create the instruments DB.
