Absynth 3 and GuitarRig 5 in CubaseArtist 6.5

Hi guys, I am having a problem where the Native Instruments VSTs Absynth (v3) and GuitarRig (v5) do not show up in CubaseArtist 6.5. I recently upgraded to CA6, and am trying to migrate all my instruments over. I checked the Plug-in List and neither VST shows up in the list.

I thought it may be due to a 64-bit conflict at first, but I checked and I am still in 32-bit mode.

Both VSTs work just fine with no errors in standalone mode, so I know they can operate under my current system setup. Other NI VSTs work just fine in Cubase, like Kontact and Pro53.

Please help, I use both of these VSTs a lot and need to get them up and running. Any ideas why these particular plug ins will not load?

Mac OSX 10.6.8
CoreAudio (sound card uninstalled for testing)

All music apps installed in the ~/Applications folder, not the Volumes/System/Application folder (I do this to keep music and video apps separated into separate user accounts. So far it has worked very well at keeping clutter to a minimum. But I wonder if anyone can verify this as an issue)


I ended up having to uninstall and then reinstall everything. Quite a pain but now it all works perfectly
