    • 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.

    • 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
