sounds like you're using a broken distribution.

I seem to recall you posting bugs in the past due to a broken distribution.

I definitely can't reproduce this on Windows 10 (64-bit). I suggest you download from mamedev.org and extract into an empty folder. Create a fresh mame.ini and go from there.

All of those plugins were removed some time ago. Delete them to silence the errors.
