Default .dll not showing up.

Hi. This is the first instrument .dll I've downloaded. I've placed DSK ChoirZ.dll in with all the VSTs in the VST directory and restarted Reaper but it's not showing up. I've also tried it in the Components directory and that doesn't work either. I ran Auto-detect and scan but it doesn't show up. What am I missing?

.dll files are for Windows and won't work in Mac OS-X.
For info on SWS Reaper extension plugin (including Xenakios' previous extension/actions) :

Several other users have reported problems with DSK plug-ins anyway. You might consider alternative developers. What are you aiming to do?

There may be a 3rd party dll to vst wrapper available. That's what you'd need to do anyway if there isn't also a vst or au version of the plugin provided.

dll files in Windows can also be what are called dylib files in OSX. And sometimes Windows vst files have a dll extension even though they are vst files. So check the installer download again. Maybe you got a "Windows vst" version by accident.
