    It appears that the folder structure is deeper than Reaper 5 can find unless you add the parent sub-folder to the directories to be scanned.

    example of installed structure:
    Y:\Plugins\VST\Flux\SoleraV3.vst\contents\x64\SoleraV3.dll

    Reaper preferences:

    According to your picture you haven't added Y:\Plugins\VST but Y:\PluginsVST

    You do have added Y:\Plugins\VSTi so I think is an accidental mistake that happens to all of us.

    Look closer my friend... Y:\Plugins\VST + Y:\Plugins\VSTi + Y:\Plugins\VST\Flux (at the end of the string thus far).

    the separator in Reaper is ;

    This my actual plugin setup. Experimenting on relocation of VST3 without the linking topology that is not 100% and, may get phased out by Microsoft. May be switching to Linux anyway.


    Side note: Windows performs better inside Linux through VM.

    As much as I look I don't see the "Y:\Plugins\VST" but I see a "Y:\PluginsVST"

    Geek question: what Linux distro do you use for hosting windows VM?

    You are right! I must have typed in the wrong designation when I redid everything. Should have used the add button & gone searching I guess. It did not work the first tom though when it was correct. All other plugins worked before the edit. Flux worked after the edit.

    Find one that feels like a good fit. Do you want complex or easy?

    Manjaro, Ubuntu, Pop!, original Debian (Buster)

    I've a lot of experience doing the opposite (Windows hosting Linux VM) due to my work, web developer. But besides being Linux, it's a server one (no windows system) so I was curious.
    Yeah, Debian is light on the RAM but a major PITA to tweak. Ubuntu a bit more bloated but sweet.

    I go back to UNIX days when Linux was just getting noticed. Back then, it was hard to get certified for networks unless you strictly did Microsoft Certification. Bill Gates at his worst.

    The cause of many sys-admins going bald.

    I believe that Linux has finally become stable enough to use on a day-to-day basis. For all levels including networking.
    Ubuntu Server is the goto but other kernels can be tweaked to your systems needs.

    Personal computers in the mid 1980's almost all had some kind of custom DOS to work with the chosen hardware.

    ASCII picture transfer over a $250 a month T-Line anyone?
