i tried your link to the possible solution but could not proceed.

i could not locate the pluginregistry.cfg. after following the instruction User\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Audacity\

if i could find this i will try:
1. exit audacity

2. delete effect plugins

3. reinstall chosen plugins [add/remove location].

"AppData" is a hidden file in Windows.

At the risk of stating the obvious, you have to put your own username in that string without the <> brackets ...

''show hidden files and folders'' is enabled.

i am still unable to find pluginregistry.cfg.

the ''run'' instruction is followed by a ''location cannot be found'' message.

If you can make your way to "AppData\Roaming\Audacity" "pluginregistry.cfg" is there, see ...

i did a command prompt and it showed there is a plugintegistry.cfg file in c:disk ; i just cannot find it.

however, i have found out i can delete this via command prompt route.

so, just to be sure i am doing things correctly after deletion, can you confirm:

1. i exit [not uninstall ] audacity

2. delete file

3, open audacity and re install plugins of choice including new ones in add/remove plugin manager.

That sounds right to me.

I think the config file will survive uninstalling Audacity, that's why you have to seek & destroy it.
BTW you can rename the old config file, rather than deleting it , as I have done ...

That allows you to put it back the way it was.

1. not go ahead and delete the cfg file via command prompt...... and:

2. rename the cfg file via command prompt

3, if so how do i do this??

If you delete "pluginregistry.cfg" the data in it will be lost : no way back from that, unless you have a copy of it.
If you rename "pluginregistry.cfg" to say "pluginregistry-old.cfg" Audacity will generate a new "pluginregistry.cfg" when it is restarted.

If in the future you need to reinstate (or inspect*) the old cfg file you have a copy called "pluginregistry-old.cfg"
