VST installers should 'remember' the location used to install the plugins


VST installers should 'remember' the location used to install the plugins.

So when updating or reinstalling that the default location for the installation of the VST is in the previous location.

This is easy to do, numerous other plugin installers do it and I've done it for the programs I've created. For Windows installers - one way is to store the location in the system Registry.

As someone who owns a fair number of your plugins having to change the both the 32 & 64 bit locations for every plugin I'm updating is a pain.

Blackhole and Ardour: no go.




I recently bought the Blackhole plugin, it performs magnificent in Apple Mainstage 3.

But when I wanted to use it in my favourite DAW, Ardour, it would not load.

I already informed the tech team of Ardour. The thing is, they need to get to the bottom why exactly this particular plugin will not load. It is not a license (iLok) issue, since other iLok licensed plugins just do load. There is something coded differently than how things are done in other plugins, they presume.
