So we’re upgrading a single-component VST plug-in to be a 2-component one. Problem: I can’t figure out how to rescan VST3 plug-ins in Cubase 8.5. The newly added shell component gets recongnized when I delete all Preferences on Mac (MacHD/Users/Me/Library/Preferences/Cubase 8.5), but I can’t figure out which single file to delete. Ideally, we would like to give the user a minimal invasive action to do this.
I guess similar action needs to be taken on Windows?
Alternatively, is there a version number or something in the plist file whatsoever that ensures a rescan of shelled plug-ins, e.g. for new components?
