Sorry - 32 bit plugin problems

Post by NeverEnding » Sat Apr 24, 2021 6:15 pm

I am running Mixcraft 9 Pro Studio 64 bit on a Windows 10 64 bit desktop.

My problem is that when I try to import some 32 bit plugins, they aren't seen by Mixcraft. I use the import feature and point it to the folder where the plugin is located, it does a scan and then says 0 files found, 0 files skipped, etc. Some 32 bit plugins work- others don't. I have been reading forum posts for a couple of days and the concensus is that Mixcraft 9 64 bit can run 32 bit plugins- but some of them don't install.

I know this has been discussed a lot, but I can't seem to find any definitive answer for this problem. Would be grateful for any advice, even if it's a link to another forum post. Thank you.

Can you list a few that are 32 bit and are NOT recognized in your situation?

If they are .dll files, you can usually just copy the files straight to your VST folder in the Program Files (x86) directory. Others you have to do a full install from a .exe application file.

Could that be part of your problem?
