asked Jun 1 in Studio One 5 by petergoacher (120 points)
I have Studio One 5 Artist and it reads the VST plugin Smart EQ3 when it opens on my Windows 10 PC, but it won't display it in the library of effects.  I have tried the various suggestions for clearing the plugin list and deleting the files from the x64 folder but the problem remains.

I have looked at the file pluginscanner.log and it gives the following message:

2021/06/01 18:11:55.838 [Info]: UI Status: Scanning 40 of 83: smartEQ3
2021/06/01 18:11:55.840 [Info]: Scan next file in scan process: smartEQ3
2021/06/01 18:11:55.996 [Info]: Scan file completed: scan process result = 0x80004005 class data: YES

I have tried Sonible (the creators of the plugin) but they cannot help and suggest asking PreSonus.  I am not precious about the plugin and will remove it if I cannot get Studio One to load it, but I would have liked to have tried it out first.

I have the same problem with the NEO Piano One Plugin and Studio One 5 Artist. I have a Win10 professional and every time by the first scan of the plugins,after clearing of the settings, I have following Messages in PluginScanner.log

Also the Plugins-de.settings is not complete. it is missing the informatinos of Class version Vendorr........

<Section path="A2AF1888/Neo_Piano_x64.dll">

<Attributes numClasses="0">

<DateTime x:id="modifiedTime" time="2018/11/11 20:22:46.000"/>

<Version x:id="version"/>


But on another Win 10 Home Notebook the plugin works without all problems.  have you  some ideas what could be the problem.

It would be very nice to have a solution. other 2.4 VST plugins works fine.

Thanks thomas
