My mate set C:\ as the plugins directory on my PC, so Live falls over looking for VST's. So if anyone knows what the preference file is so I can delete it...... that would be ace.

Been looking for hours and it's driving me up the wall! :x

Cheers
Stevie

Search for *.cfg in your document and settings folder, you will find it in application data/ableton/....


but it will not fix your vst plugin folder problem

you better go in the preferences menu ( ctrl+,) and go in file folder settings.

then set the folder properly.

Live will scan automaticly.

cheers

Cheers! I can't actually get into Live to adjust the preferences! :wink:

Once I've trashed the .cfg file then I *should* be able to get back into live to reset the vst folder.

C:\Documents and Settings\You\Application Data\Ableton\Version Number\Preferences\Preferences.cfg


... where "You" and "Version Number" are obviously specific to your system.

Thanks man! I'll have a look later on. It's 1 of those really simple things, I just couldn't remember, you know?

Yes, and it's complicated by the fact that Windows hides the "Application Data" folder by default.
