VST scan every run 10.0.1

Post by Robert de Clair » Tue Mar 06, 2018 7:19 am

As in topic - Ableton suite scans VST every run. its annoying because my whole VST folder is huge (Komplete 11U + many other VST) can took about 6 mins for scan.
Where could be problem? @ 9 suite i just scan VST once or on demand and everything run smooth.

Is there some kind of switch or option who I miss?

Read this http://www.heavyweightbass.net/index.ph ... zcymw0hwz/

The option you're looking for is -NoVstStartupScan.

A lot of sites and videos about the option.txt file.

Don't know why live 9 scans fast and 10 slow, it's like 9 remembers scanned vst and indexes those? and 10 doesn't? , had the same issue.

The only thing that finally worked for me was to use an SSD for my system drive. As soon as I did that, many of my Live problems went away, especially slow startups.

ive tried adding the -NoVstStartupScan in the options file but still bet the scan every time i fire up ableton, has this been removed in 10.1, as the OP mentioned this is a painful process if you have a large plugin folder

I have the same problem. The NoVstStartUpScan options text works great on my windows 7 machine but it doesn't work on my Windows 10 machine, Ableton still scans the vsts on start up.
