Windows – Moving a VST plug-in file to another folder

Windows – Moving a VST plug-in file to another folder

On windows, FLUX:: Center offers the options to customize the plugins install path (depending on the plugin format) If you for some reason change the installation path, make sure you point the installer to a VST plug-in folder that is scanned by your DAW software or else your DAW won’t find the plug-ins.

If for some reason you want to move your VST plug-in files to another location in your file system after they’re installed, do NOT try moving the files manually in the file system, as this will cause inconsistent behaviors as the plug-ins then may not find the resource files they need in order to work correctly. Instead uninstall the plug-ins you want to move, change the plug-in path in Flux:: Center preferences, then re-install them.

Should the case be that you’ve already moved your plug-in .dll files manually, you will experience problems with your VST plug-ins. (plugin crash, or black/white GUI, etc…) To resolve this, open FLUX:: Center, uninstall the plug-ins, remove any files that were moved manually and hence not removed in the uninstallation, change the plug-in path in FLUX:: Center preferences, then re-install them.
