VST_PATH Audacity 2.1.3

Hi,

I use Audacity 2.1.3 with VSTs on Windows 10 and I wonder if the behaviour stated in wiki for VST lookup is correct.
(http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/installing_effect_generator_and_analyzer_plug_ins_on_windows.html#vst_install)

Indeed, I prefer to use a VST_PATH system environment variable. However, when configured Audacity doesn't find the VSTs.

But it's ok with registry and Steinberg directory.

Regards,
AF.

Hi,

I think I found the issue.
In the code of VSTEffect.cpp

The tokenizer at line 354 should be turned into:
Code: Select all
wxStringTokenizer tok(vstpath, ";");

//with the ";" delimiter

To submit patches yourself, there are two ways:
* As a pull request on GitHub: https://github.com/audacity/audacity
* Email a patch to the developer's mailing list: https://sourceforge.net/projects/audaci ... city-devel (registration required)

or, the easiest way for small patches - just tell us about it here on the forum (as you have done), and we will forward it to the developer's mailing list (which I shall do now).
Thanks
