Do you happen to install the program in portable mode?

Yes, because I stick it on my flash drive for use in school.

So is it installed on a flash drive or somewhere else? Using portable mode can be potentially troublesome if you are installed to the "Program Files" directory. If you are doing so, please try installing it to some other directory in portable mode and see if it helps.

I did that.  Still didn't work :-(  Is there any way to batch a plugins list?  Like, have cmd (through a .bat) go and find every .dll in the folder and add it to MPT's ini, or at least a separate text file that can be copy-pasted into the ini?

Nevermind.  I used the command "C:\VST>dir /B /S *.dll > C:\VST\list.txt" and might try and modify it to add the counting plugin numbers beforehand.  If I can't do that I'll just manually do it.

Really weird...
I guess this is the part where I'm supposed to implement VST scanning?

Idk, if you want.  I'm apparently the only one who has this problem, since it seems to work for you; if anything, see if you can mod something like that console command I posted in.  I've got mine working now with some copy-pasting, but it would probably be a good idea for implementation, if it's not too big a deal to do.

Ugh, new problem: I batched all the plugins into the config, but they still don't show up.  In fact, the plugins that were previously there stopped showing up as well.  Should I do something to the plugin cache as well?  Here's my batched code: (CAUTION: long!)
