32 bit plugins in 64 bit Windows 8.1

Need to access “VST 2.x plug-ins paths” to insert 32 bit plugin, but don’t know how to navigate to that folder

Have you installed the plugin to the Steinberg vstplugins folders in the x86 program files path. If it is just a dll file you can just place it in the folder. Cubase should already have a path to this folder. If not create one.
My advice would be to look up jBridge to convert the plugin into a 64 bit plugin. It is simple to use and avoids the incompatibilities that Cubase’s own bridging system.

Thank you for your prompt and knowledgeable response. Greatly appreciated.
