Does anybody know how to get EW Play to show up as a plugin? I successfully added NI libraries, but can't with Play. I go into preferences and try adding a VST folder, but I can't even find where Play got installed. I'm using a slave computer running Windows 10, but I'm a bit lost in Windows having been on Apples forever.

Thanks,
Aaron

Mine is in C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins and that is where I have set VE Pro 6  to look for it in Options- Preferences-Plugins.

Hi Jay,

Thanks for the response.  I can't figure this out.  I can navigate to the Play plugin, when I'm in Windows, but it doesn't show up when I navigate to the same folder in VEP 6 - it's as if it is hidden.

In Windows it's at this location:  Local Disk (C)>Program Files (x86)>VST Plugins>play_VST.dll.

I have no idea why it wouldn't be there when I navigate to the same VST Plugins folder from within VEP.

Thanks,

Aaron

Maybe because it is in the x86 program files folder instead of the other?

Okay, thanks to friend Tobias, I got it solved.  VEP only shows the folder and not the contents.  Plus it's the VST folder in Program Folders without the (x86).  I guess that folder is for 32 bit plugins.

Mystery solved.

Thanks,

Aaron

BTW, Play 5.0 is a giant step forward and is working fine  in VE Pro 6 for me.

Unfortunately I am not having the same level of success as you Asher. I have two templates: On the 32GB i7 PC I have my HWO loaded into VEP 6 and on the Mac Pro Dual 6-Core 64GB I have Percussion (Some Kontakt 5.6), EW Pianos, EW Symphonic Choirs Platinum and Synths (Absynth5, DIVA, Waves Element, OMni2, Zebra+HZ etc). But I as soon as I change tracks on my 88 track Logic Pro 10.2.4 template to play another part or record, my VEP 6 will crash (15264). There are no crashes on the PC, also with PLAY 5 loaded in.

Sorry to hear that. I can perhaps help you troubleshoot it over Skype but it is a paid service.

Im getting a somewhat simliar problem as the poster above. As soon as I hit play on the trasnport bar my VEPro crashes immediately. I've tried many solutions, and so far the only stable one is removing play from VEPro, which is a terrible solution. Still tinkering over here to try to solve this ...

Will likely go back to PLAY 4 where my template still worked.

I'm afraid I'm seeing similar issues.   With Play 5, my template often doesn't complete loading, and the Play load progress bar remains on screen.  If I try and do anything to my Play instance within VE Pro, VEP6 crashes.

I was really hoping Play 5 would finally solve the ongoing unhappiness between Play and VEP but I'm afraid it's no better here and possibly worse.

Oh, wow, this morning when I open VE Pro 6 and load the HS stuff and then load the project that connects to it, VE Pro 6 is in fact crashing on the Mac and the crash log says that it is Play 5. Not happening with the PC though.
 
I just sent the crash log to EW.
 
EDIT: I just tried this with the AU instead of the VST formats of Play 5 and it is not crashing.

Mine was more of a hang than a crash (ie. VEP becomes unresponsive, white screen, have to manually force quit the process) - I just checked the crashdump folder and no dump was created.  Next time it happens I'll run a manual process dump when it hangs.
