I am experiencing a small Audacity VST admin problem.
Audacity lists VST effects that are not on my c: drive (anymore).
I have tried re-scanning to no avail.
If you look in the README.txt accompanying 1.3.9, you'll see that it was a known issue that "VST effects always remain in Effect menu even when rescanned and no longer available". If you look at the online version of the release notes
you will see that this issue has been fixed in our latest development code, so will be fixed in the next 1.3.10 Release. I have sent you a link to download an Alpha version of 1.3.10.

We'll note your request, but ability to choose which of the supported locations to load from, or to choose a custom location is not likely until after the next Stable 2.0 Release.

If you are using 1.3.9 that should only be because you have a second copy of the .dll in one of the locations Audacity searches for it (see my main post
in this topic). If you are using 1.3.8 it may be because you still have the VST Enabler in the Audacity Plug-Ins folder. I suggest you try 1.3.10 Alpha.

not being able to run multi-step VST plug-ins properly.
AEN007 is referrring to REAfir (used in "Subtract" Noise Removal mode) from: http://reaper.fm/files/reaplugs.zip
We may at some future time be able to allow modeless effects so that you can change the selection area in the waveform and preview a different area without closing the efffect. That would solve part of the problem with REAfir (and allow our own Noise Removal to be run without closing and re-opening it, too). The plug-ins in this REA bundle are of course also designed to be used with real-time input so you can change the effect parameters as you play the audio. Audacity does not support real-time plug-ins yet.
