Just installed Studio One 4 and every single plugin, that works still just fine in S1-3, fails and gets blacklisted during the plugin scan.

Is anyone else having the same issue?

Actually, this is not fixed.  

I don't know if the problem is that I had installed and uninstalled JBridge a few years back.  That has been a major pain ever since.  It has caused every installation of a music software to have issues.  Even after I have removed every remnant piece of JBridge, I have to click on an hundreds of error message for all the JBridge .dlls from prior initial install.  

Once I do this then It will be fine from there on out. Every boot of S1 works fine.  

Now, after I went through the same procedure with the installation of S1-4, I was still not seeing all my plugins.  SoundToys was missing and then I just started looking through these Q&As to try and find the problem.

I'm now following the suggestion of danielkaminski1 in this post:

I've uninstalled S1-4 and am reinstalling now.  It's in the process of scanning for plugins.  Everyone is being blacklisted again.  I'll have to patiently go through hundreds of JBridge error messages again and see if that works.  

Meanwhile, I may not even produce anything in S1-4.  I'll just stay with V3 till there's an update.  It looks like many people having issues with the latest upgrade.

I got it to work! You have to disable your virus protection. Here's what I did:

  1. Reset your blacklist
  2. Delete all your VST location paths
  3. Apply
  4. Close Studio One 4
  5. Turn OFF your virus protection
  6. Open Studio One 4

Studio One 4 automatically selected my 64-bit plugin location paths again. It scanned those paths and successfully added the VSTs.

Turning off anti virus and rescanning worked on my system as well thank you for the solution.
I'm whitelisting the plugin directories in my anti virus so I don't have to turn it off completely and work offline.
I've also noticed that with antivirus turned off the plugin scan at startup is significantly faster as well, it used to take over a minute only 2 seconds now.

You're saying that you've completely removed the JBridge software, but you obviously have not managed to do that if you keep getting references to load the .dll. Then there are some instructions coming from the OS when you load audio apps telling it to load the .dll.

All sorts of things will happen if an application expects a .dll to be loaded that is not present, exactly what is up to how the application was developed.

My guess is that you haven't cleaned the Windows Registry (with regedit.exe) to remove all references to these components.

Do a full backup in case you mess things up in the registry, then fire up Regedit and do a global search through all the hives for jbridge and delete all the references you find. But, be careful in there, one wrongly deleted entry can make your system unusable or not work at all.

But for application specific stuff, it's usually safe to delete everything you find.

To open Regedit, press the Windows Key + R, which opens the Run Dialog box.
Type regedit in this box and press Ok.
