After installation plug-in doesn't show up in Ableton Live

If plug-in you've just installed doesn't show up on plug-in list in Ableton Live, please walk through following steps:

  1. First of all make sure all Software Requirements are met by your setup.

  2. If you're Windows user: Then you may try out the solution described in this entry at our FAQ. It's possible that some system runtime libraries required by plug-in are missing. This concerns especially relatively fresh Windows installations.

  3. Still no success? Try to disable Use VST Plugin-In Customer Folder option in Ableton Live's preferences and then re-enable it. This will force Albeton Live to perform much thorough plug-in scan than using Rescan option. This concerns both platofrms: Mac OS X and Windows
