SONAR 7 PE says, "This plug-in is missing"

Postby bradleypariah » Sat Jan 05, 2013 8:27 am

BFD shows up under "Soft Synths", as proven by this screenshot:

The standalone BFD Stereo app launches and functions perfectly, but when I try to open the plugin from SONAR, I get this error message:

How could it be "missing" if it's listed as an available plug-in?

After running into the issue the first time, I downloaded the BFD public beta - V.
It did not fix my problem.

The problem began today when I clean-installed/upgraded to 64-bit Windows 8 Pro from 32-bit Win7 Pro.
System specs:
Intel Core2Quad 2.41 GHz CPU on Intel motherboard
512MB DDR2 Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS
Creative SB0570 PCI 5.1

In a different but similar thread Rory-FX said this,
"We don't really support BFD in Win7 as it's a legacy product on a modern operating system"

I'm guessing it's the same for windows 8 ?

Time you upgraded to BFD2 ?
