Manage... (VST)

i try to use Audacity 2.1.1
There is a problem with the manager of effects.
I have VST in the file " plug-ins " of Audacity. When I enter the manager of the effects and when I authorize a VST (for example " Classic Auto Filter " Kjaerhus), then that I click on “OK”, the scan of the effects does not work correctly. At the moment, it jams.I understand that Audacity looks for modules for the functioning of the VST, but that these modules are untraceable in the file of the plug-ins of Audacity. Either that these modules are not accessible?
Furthermore, the rare VST who appear in the menu “Effects”, category " VST " does not work. An error message appears: " error 126; the specified module is untraceable. ", or “le module est introuvable. °Program Files (x86) Audacity\plug-ins\freakency\Spring2.sem”

Is it necessary to uninstall completely Audacity and to reinstall the version 2.1.1?

Sorry for the translation.

Classic Auto-Filter from is available for me in the Effect Menu after I enable it. I use Windows 7 x64 and I changed Audacity language to French because I assume you use Audacity in French. Is your version of Windows running in French language and what language is Audacity running in?

You could disable all the VST effects in the Plug-in Manager except Classic Auto-Filter. That should load Classic Auto Filter. Then enable the other VST’s one by one until you find any that do not load.

If you mean I do not see that error message. I have “freakency.dll” inside C:\Program Files (x86)\Audacity\Plug-Ins. When I open the Freakency effect, it creates a “freakency” folder inside C:\Program Files (x86)\Audacity\Plug-Ins. That “freakency” folder contains 25 “SEM” files.

If you are not signed in as administrator you do not have permission to write any files or folders to C:\Program Files (x86)\Audacity\Plug-Ins. If this is the problem, I suggest you log in as administrator the first time you open Freakency in Audacity, then Freakency should be able to create its SEM files.

Alternatively, create a “VST_PATH” environment variable pointing to a location in your own user space and move freakency.dll to that location.

It is not necessary if you previously had some 2.x.x version of Audacity.

But if problems persist after trying the above suggestions, exit Audacity, then assuming you are on Windows Vista or later, open "Users<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Audacity". In that “Audacity” folder, delete the “pluginregistry.cfg” file. See here if you need help finding that “Audacity” folder:

Then restart Audacity and enable the effects you want in Plug-in Manager.
