VST plugins not being found
I have been using a number of VST plugins for some time in Windows 8 with no issues. Unfortunately, my hard drive motor failed and I lost everything on the drive. No big deal, as I had my vst folder and sample library backed up. I reinstalled Live 8.2.1 and the plugins started crashing the software nonstop. I upgraded to 8.4.2 and it's finally stable. Unfortunately, I cannot get it to find my VST plugins. They've worked for years just fine, and now none of them populate in the plugin browser.
one thing is very different this time around: Norton 360 has been overzealously flagging my VST .dll files in heuristic scans. It never did this before, but it seems unrelated.
In any case, I've been trying to research this problem and I have yet to find an answer.
