Updating or uninstalling VMX Dark Edition-Updated for VMX2.2.7+

Updating VMX: Users wishing to update from VMX 2.2.6 (and prior) to VMX 2.2.7 MUST first use the .exe installer first before making use of the new auto update system explained below, you need to follow this help article first. The article on this page assumes you are running VMX 2.2.7 and thus explains how to use the new auto update system found in VMX 2.2.7 and subsequent versions.

  • Step 1: Load up VoiceAttack and ensure VMX 2.2.7 (or higher) is loaded
  • Step 2: Say ‘update vmx please’ – The system should now grab the latest update from the server and automatically install for you.
  • Step 3: Once the installer has complete just click on FINISH, VoiceAttack will automatically load for you. Delete the old VMX profile from within VoiceAttack in the usual way, then click IMPORT within VoiceAttack and select the new VMX Dark Edition.vap. The .vap will be located in VoiceAttack/Sounds/VMX_Player. That’s it! Simply restart VoiceAttack.

Tip: You do not HAVE to use the ‘update vmx please’ auto update feature. You may always use the standard installer downloadable from ‘my account’ on DarkNebula.cloud if you wish. This may be useful if you have just uninstalled VMX or are re-installing after some troubleshooting. Simply follow the standard installation guide here https://darknebula.cloud/2019/10/12/installingvmx/

Uninstalling VMX:

Navigate to your VoiceAttack root folder (where VoiceAttack.exe is located) you will see an ‘UninstallVMX.exe’. Simply ensure that VoiceAttack is not running and then double click the uninstaller.exe and this will uninstall all VMX elements for you.


If you experience any other issues then please try starting VoiceAttack in Administrator mode prior to calling ‘update vmx please’ and also start VoiceAttack in Administrator mode when importing the new VMX Dark Edition.vap file. This shouldn’t be necessary for VMX but your own Windows security settings might require it.
