See workshop about VObjects here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKRxvT2Gjb0

VObjects is a toolkit for vvvv to handle the base .NET object class. (Instead of being an immediate wrapper base type. That is gone now entirely)

There are couple of helper classes which help you organize your objects. First is VObjectCollection which is basically a dictionary with some extra data.

You can add any type to a VObjectCollection (even numbers or colors with current alpha vvvv). For quick grouping of values Messages are recommended which you can also add to a VObjectCollection.

If a class implements IVPathQueryable interface it allows for simple retrieval of nested objects by an XPath like syntax if nested containing objects are also implementing IVPathQueryable. Note it can reference an object at the end of the path hierarchy not implementing IVPathQueryable. Multiple objects can be queried by a Regex pattern or a single absolute reference can be used in quotes. Nested levels are separated by a user defined separator character, which is ¦ by default, the reason was that this character is the least likely to turn up in regex patterns. But if you don't use regex at all you can set a more common character like . or / etc.

I'm using the vpm version of VObjects and getting a lot of red nodes for some reason. I checked the paths and it was looking for a non existent x64 subfolder. I copied all the relevant .dll files into it but I'm still getting missing node errors.

Any ideas on how to solve?

If you're checking girlpower patches then they have the good old annoying microdee's pack signature problem of I haven't updated them for at least the last 27 breaking changes and up-to-date documentation is basically non-existent :(
you don't have to put anything anywhere though to use the thing because it's AnyCPU now.
