VST scan options are not working

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I downloaded some plugins from Spitfire Audio, but Cakewalk doesn't detect them in the VST folders that I assigned them to. I had made sure the file paths were added to the Cakewalk VST scan paths. For some reason though, the "Rescan failed VSTs" and "Rescan All VSTs" buttons are greyed out, even on Manual Scan. How do I resolve this?

Fiz o download de alguns plug-ins do Spitfire Audio, mas o Cakewalk não os detecta nas pastas VST às quais eu os designei. Eu tinha certeza de que os caminhos do arquivo foram adicionados aos caminhos de verificação do Cakewalk VST. Por alguma razão, os botões "Verificar novamente VSTs com falha" e "Verificar novamente todos os VSTs" estão acinzentados, mesmo na Verificação manual. Como eu resolvo isso?

Are the plug-ins in the VST3 folder on the D drive.

This is a non-standard location for VST3 plug-ins and may not work.

The 64 bit .dll files from Spitfire actually save right in Cakewalk's vstplugin folder on the D drive

Eu não sei o que você quer dizer com isso

After I upgraded my Windows 10 to version 2004 the vst scan stopped working. It gets stuck.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling Cakewalk. Windows 10 upgrades do nasty things to PCs. 😀

After a bit of digging, I've found the only reason that the scan buttons would be greyed out is when the path to the VstScan program is missing or invalid.

@Jun Kwan / @Milton Sica - can you check a few things for me?

1. Open RegEdit by holding Windows Key & R and typing in RegEdit:

2. Navigate to  Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cakewalk Music Software\Cakewalk\Cakewalk VST X64

3. Check the both the VSTScan path entry actually exists, and the path it points to exists on your file system. For example, if I go to
C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Shared Utilities\ , I find VstScan.exe:

4. Right Click Properties on VstScan.exe and check the version:

Also check the compatibility tab, and ensure it's not set to run as a different user:

Depois de um pouco de pesquisa, descobri que a única razão pela qual os botões de digitalização seriam acinzentados é quando o caminho para o programa VstScan está ausente ou é inválido.

@Jun Kwan / @Milton Sica - você pode verificar algumas coisas para mim?

1. Abra o RegEdit mantendo pressionada a tecla Windows & R e digitando RegEdit:

2. Navegue para  Computer \ HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Software de música Cakewalk \ Cakewalk \ Cakewalk VST X64

3. Verifique se a entrada do caminho do VSTScan realmente existe e se o caminho para o qual ele aponta existe no seu sistema de arquivos. Por exemplo, se eu for para
😄 \ Arquivos de programas \ Cakewalk \ Shared Utilities \, localizarei VstScan.exe:

4. Clique com o botão direito do mouse em Propriedades no VstScan.exe e verifique a versão:

Verifique também a guia de compatibilidade e verifique se ela não está configurada para ser executada como um usuário diferente:

Thanks @Milton Sica - we'll look into why the version number is different for you.

Can you also check that the registry entry (steps 1 & 2) is pointing to this file ?

obrigado @Milton Sica - veremos por que o número da versão é diferente para você.

Você também pode verificar se a entrada do registro (etapas 1 e 2) está apontando para este arquivo?

Yes. The path as equal. A question: do you have a url to made download vstscan.exe ?

I think that my version is in portuguese ! (?????)

 

I've sent you a copy of the English one. My suspicion is that the portuguese version wasn't built properly, and an older version was packaged, but we'll need to look into this further to confirm.

For what it is worth my vstscan.exe is also version 6.0.3.0.  Dated 03/06/2020 15:00. And it works. Details are identical to Milton's.
