Devices-Plugin Info-VST2.x Paths
Or, if you are asking what I think you are, it is dependent on the OS.
On XP/32 they usually live in the public folder.
This is at C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VSTplugins, or sometimes (rarely but it happens) C:\Program Files\VSTplugins.
Then there is the host’s locked, private plugin folder. You can install 3rd party plugins to this fgolder, but only that host will be able to “see” them if you do. In my case, these are at (where “x” is the version number)
C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Nuendox\VSTplugins, or
C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubasex\VSTplugins, or
C:\Program Files\Steinberg\WaveLab x\system\VSTplugins
