    Default Cant Find NI Massive in Plugin browser

    high everybody!

    been having an issue getting NI's Massive VST plugin to appear in my browser in Ableton Live. im running windows 7 32bit, Live 8.2. I used to have my plugin's directory in C:\Program Files\Custom VST folder until i was told (by someone at the Ableton forums) not to do so. i changed the directory to C:\Users\Me\Documents\VST folder and still nothing shows up when i rescan.

    EDIT: i shouldnt say "nothing" shows up, because i also have Image Lines Gross Beat VST and it does show up, but Massive wont.

    anyone know why i cant see Massive in my browser?

    Copy the massive.dll from the Native Instruments > Massive folder into your VST folder

    I've had so much issues with Massive crashing my sets I had to get rid of it... All the songs I'm using it on, I have to find new sounds for. But maybe that's just me, I dunno.

    If you using windows 7, try detecting compatibility and running it in compatibility mode. It also could be the way you installed it. Fixed problems for me.
