Questions & Answers

Info: Intact 3rd-party Plugins are being blacklisted just because the 'PlugInScanner.exe' has no access to the internet.

Glad, I found the solution to my problem.

However, it took me several hours to find out,
that the only reason why all my 3rd-party plugins had been blacklisted
was, that (when starting Studio One) the 'PlugInScanner' had no access to the internet.

Talking about this guy:

Some of my third party plugins won’t respond and will get blacklisted if my iLok isnt in because they require either an iLok or online verification.

Do any of those plugins have the ability to do some form of physical licensing, either on a dongle or a hard disk? That’s one way to go offline.

From my understanding Some of these plugins start throwing exceptions the second they don’t see a license. If you’re set up so your licenses are in “the cloud” and you’re not online, hows it supposed to see a license?

(It occured with freeware plugins that need no internet connection themselves.)
