3.2.0 keeps rescanning for plugins on startup

I have disabled VST and VST3 plugins and it still does that. In fact I then disabled all plugins and it still does that. How do I disable it?

Hope you don’t mind, but as this has happened to me after upgrading to v3.2.0 i’ll be keeping an eye open on this thread.

Have you tried Audacity 3.2.1 ? https://www.audacityteam.org/download/

I do not believe there is currently a way to disable the scan.

I have just installed v3.2.1 over 3.2.0 (without uninstalling). Unfortunately the issue persists

Thanks for your report. The developers are continuing to work on rescanning issues. See here: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues/3802
and here: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues/3944

and we are hopeful that additional solutions will become available during the next few weeks.

In the meantime, you can download older versions (e.g., 3.1.3) of Audacity here: https://www.fosshub.com/Audacity-old.html
