Where does Cakewalk store the list of active plugins?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does Cakewalk store the active list of plugins in the registry or a text file, or anywhere else accessible? I installed a new plugin (Roli Studio Player) and after scanning, Cakewalk had found 2 new plugins but also removed 23 other plugins. It doesn't appear to have removed any of my main plugins, but I don't want to be surprised in a session when I open a track and some plugins are not available, so I would like to check what was deleted and re-install if necessary. I could restore from backup but that is quite time consuming, so hopefully there is some other way I can access this list to make sure nothing critical was removed. I will leave logging on in future just in case this happens again, but it unfortunately was switched off when this happened. Thanks for any assistance.

Plug in manager utility lists what chosen as included or excluded by you so all plugins should be in one or the other category in there

The DX plug-ins are registered at install time.

VST2/VST3 are registered by the scanner.

The data is stored in the registry.

The VST2/3 data is stored in 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Cakewalk Music Software\Cakewalk\Cakewalk VST X64\Inventory

 

I wrote a tool to view and export the VST2/3 data called VST Inventory Tool. The export is an html table viewable in any browser or spreadsheet tool.

It is available on my google page.

Remember also that plugins can be excluded, which this doesn't take into account:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Cakewalk Music Software\ExcludedPlugIns

CLSIDs are used.

Thanks for the responses - I will compare the registry key from my backup to the current one and hopefully determine which plugins were removed.
