I am having issues with the Plugin Host and VST plugins under Windows 7.
On the forum, I have found no similar thread, or other user experiencing this problem.
Some plugins cause the PluginHost demo program to crash while scanning for new plugins.
The plugins found to crash are URS Classic Compressor Bundle, Sonnox plugins (Reverb & EQ), and PSP VintageWarmer. I believe these are not the only plugins causing the problem, but at least these are the ones I have at hand.
All these plugins share the fact that they must be authorized using an iLok key.
To my knowledge, affects Windows 7 64 bits, but not Windows XP 32 bits.
I have not tested under other platforms than those two.
The VSThost application scans and loads the plugins just fine.
I have tried to debug the scanning process, but the debugger quits as soon as the dll is loaded. I believe this is a counter measure to forbid debugging on copy-protected plugins.
I would love to know what can be the cause of this problem.
I will be happy to give any further information that can be useful.
