No problems here. I've created a "Cockos" folder under "My Folders" and put all Cockos VST plugins there. And they are still there after each update!


The thing I find annoying is that I have to rename the plugins on each update again and again because REAPER resets their names :(

why would you put them in a cockos folder if they are already in a cockos folder...

1. To be able to rename the Cockos plugins, see http://forum.cockos.com/project.php?issueid=858

2. To get the plugins shown in the "Add FX" rightclick menu

Can't repro that, Cockos plugins still in my test folder after reinstall. Are you only missing the Cockos plugins or are you only having Cockos plugins in there?

Sorry, I meant a new version install, which happened to be due when you posted the issue. Tested the same on XP just now, same result, works fine. I see 3 people can repro this, I wonder what makes the difference.

As Steindork correctly figured out in the duplicate report, this happens when installing to a new folder, because when you install to a new folder you install new copies of the Reaplugs. It's still a bug though.

why does it need to delete the path name? it is not like reaper copy the DLL, right? I thought that it writes paths to the dll, so I don't get why these paths are being deleted if I reaper can still find the path for the vsts (because it is the same path)

(btw- fix coming soon?)

It doesn't delete the path name and actually Reaper does copy DLLs (it has to or you don't get the plugins updated) and it's not the same path:

The Reaper plugins sit in ...\Reaper\Plugins\FX. When you create a custom folder (in the FX browser) and copy a plugin, the (absolute) path to the plugin is written to reaper-fxfolders.ini, located in your user folder.

Now if you just install the new version to the same folder (like 99% of us lazy folks probably do here) everything is ok. If you install to a new folder, the path to the Reaper plugins in your reaper-fxfolders.ini is not correct anymore. The plugin is not being found at the saved location anymore (either you deleted it or Reaper detects a version mismatch, no idea).

The fix is coming for you immediately if you just install any update to the same folder as the previous version. If you want to have multiple versions installed, search the forums for the procedure.

gotcha...

I think that it is best if plugins will be installed to choosen folder (common folder) so there will be a better sync.

This has happened to me in OSX for as long as I remember. I don't put my ReaPlugs in folders (Compressors, EQ's, etc) anymore because of this.

My Reaper.app is located in ~/Applications/Audio/.
