I figured it out on my end so I’ll share what worked for me if anyone else encounters a similar issue. First, the plugin didn’t like sitting being nested inside its default eventide folder. I had to dump it into the main VST directory first to get it to activate properly and be acknowledged by the licenser. Secondly, VST3 still didn’t work even after I did that and I had to go dump that one into the main VST3 directory as well since it didn’t like being in the eventide folder there either. It was where the installer wanted to put it by default so I have no idea why it didn’t work until the DLLs were moved into the root folders.
