You helped me greatly in the past and I hope you can help this 85 years old bloke once again..
I found Avisynth an absolutely fantastic tool, even though I just applied the script without understanding much of script-writing..
Thus far I have been using Avisynth under Windows 7. However, Win.7 is now presenting all sorts of problems since the support ended some years ago.
Many of the programs I use, simply stopped working, including Avisynth.
Hence my question: IS THERE A VERSION OF AVISYNTH which works under WINDOWS 10 ?
If so, please let me know where I can find it.

Thank you very much davexnet.
This probably is is the developer page, and I am sorry that I am NOT MUCH OF A DEVELOPER, but
just a simple user of of the script that was originally developed by Fred v.d.Putte.
I would be most grateful if you could provide me with a script which runs on VirtualDub under Windows 10.
What is the script from Fred v.d. Putte for? Is it an .avs text file? Can you upload it here?
In VirtualDub2 you can just paste your script into the Tools->Script Editor.
Or simply drag and drop the .avs script onto the VirtualDub2 Window.
Example of a simple script which will just play the file your.avi:

Sorry, what do you mean by 'Version()'.
It could be my poor understanding of the English language.
I live in The Netherlands. Therefore English is not my mother tongue.
Provide a short video sample and description of what you're trying to achieve;
Can't just ask for a script. Has to be customized per the issues you have
Maybe try the following with your Windows10 system:
1. Install AviSynth+ and VirtualDub2
2. Copy the files from VideoFred's plugins folder into the plugins folder of your avisynth+ installation
3. Start VirtualDub.exe (this is the 32bit variant)
4. Drag and drop one of Video Fred's .avs files (or any other .avs script you have at hand) onto the VirtualDub2 window.
What error messages do you get?
or instead of 3. and 4. follow the same procedure which you applied earlier (you wrote you had the scripts working before with an older Windows and older Avisynth version, if I understood this correctly).
Eventually it may be better to start with a basic simple script though, like the one proposed by jagabo:
1. Install AviSynth+ and VirtualDub2
2. Open a text editor (notepad.exe) and type version() and save the file as myscript.avs (not myscript.txt)
3. Start VirtualDub.exe
4. Drag and drop the file myscript.avs onto the VirtualDub2 window
What do you get?
Once you Avisynth+ and VirtualDub2 installations are basically working, you may think about replacing the legacy plugins by the actual 32bit (or 64bit) versions.

AviSynth script. When you open a script with that AviSynth will create a small video with the AviSynth version number:
[Attachment 66294 - Click to enlarge]
That will tell you if AviSynth is installed, what version, and what bitness.
Other simple scripts
BlankClip() # create a video of black framesCode:
ColorBars() # create a video with colorbars
That means 64 bit AviSynth+ is installed and you accessed it via 64 bit VirtualDub2 -- because only 64 bit AviSynth can be accessed by a 64 bit editor/encoder. 32 bit and 64 bit AviSynth+ can coexist on the same Windows installation. If you access the same script via 32 bit VirtualDub (or other edit with AviSynth support) you'll know whether 32 bit AviSynth+ is also installed (32 bit will show "i386" instead of "x86_64").
But that only tells you if AviSynth itself is installed. Video Fred's script requires many third part filters. You need to download and install them too. Note that the bitness of those filters must mach the bitness of AviSynth. 32 bit editors require 32 bit AviSynth and 32 bit AviSynth filters. 64 bit editors require 64 bit AviSynth and 64 bit AviSynth filters.
I am sorry jagabo, and most grateful, but this is gettting too complicated for me. You may remember that I am just a simple user not a developer of AviSynth.
It has done great things for me and I am just trying to repeat these under Windows 10 (let alone Win 11..).
Would you know of a ready-to-use program that does roughly the same, i.e. dirt removal, sharpening and stabilization?
Just use AviSynth as you always did. It works no differently in Win 10 than it did in Win 7. I don't understand what the problem is. If you're uncomfortable using AviSynth+, just go back to using what you're already familiar with.
For video work nothing comes close to what AviSynth can do, for me anyway.
VirtualDub2 and Avisynth+ installed and running under Windows 10. Can you tell us what does not work? Any error messages you are getting? For helping we have to understand your problem.
Or upload a short video sample which you want to process, and someone may give you a basic script you can practice with and check if it works with your setup.
VirtualDub2 is the file VirtualDub.exe, while the 64bit version is VirtualDub64.exe in the package which can be downloaded from here:
So the OP has to fire up VirtualDub.exe for 32 bit compliance.
Dear manono, Sharc and jagabo,
Thank you very much for all your great efforts to solve my problem!
However, right now I have a time consuming family matter on my hands, which I have to attend to in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, please realize that I have two computers:
1. A Win7 PC, on which I used to do all restauration & editing jobs, until Win7 partially broke down recently, but some essential software still works. Some doesn't.
I intend to have Windows 10 installed on this PC instead, ultimately.
2. A one year old Dell Win10-PC, which I use for e-mailing and all sorts of administrative jobs.
These 2 computers are not connected in a network. Therefore, each transfer (such as demo-films) from PC-1 to -2 has to be (literally) carried down one floor on a USB-sticků
Right now, I am working only on PC-2. For the time being you would really greatly help me by sending me a working script, along with an advice on the versions you are using of VirtualDub, AviSynth and plugins, filters. Manono e.g.?
In fact I need a complete package.. My apologies for my bold question!
In this manner I could start experimenting at ease (when my family lets me) and let you know about the comments I get from the system.
Would that be possible?
