I am upgrading from ProTools 10 to ProTools 12.6, and from VEP 5 to VEP 6. I have two boot volumes, one with PT 10/VEP 5 and one with PT 12.6/VEP 6.

I have a PT session that is coupled to VEP 5; this session opens and plays correctly after launching VEPro Server 64-bit and using the PT10/VEP 5 combo in the volume where it was originally created. When I attempt to open the same session after booting from the second volume with PT 12.6 and VEP 6 and launching VEP 6 Server 64-bit, x, I get an error saying the Vienna Ensemble Pro plugin is not found. If I click OK to dismiss the error and let the session open anyway, I can see the greyed out plugin assignments, all of which reference 'VEPro". I can click on the insert with the greyed out 'VEPro' label and select the instrument option for  'VIenna Ensemble Pro (stereo)' -- so the VEP 6 plugin is, in fact installed and visible to PT. If I do this, what appears in the Insert is labeled 'Vienna Ensemble Pro' and not 'VEPro', I get a AEA error -20007 (which I cannot find in any PT docs or by Googling), and there is no sign of the coupled VEP instance. I can load a new instance, but, as expected, the setup associated with the coupled instance is lost.  Thoughts on how to proceed?

Two thoughts:

  1. You are using RTAS in PT10 and obviously AAX in PT12
  2. There is no compatabilty bectween AAX 32bit and AAX 64bit.

Both these potential issues should be ruled out (check the Avid documentation) before you investigate further down the rabbit hole.

Thanks, DG. You put me on the right track. I uninstalled VEP 6 from the PT 12.6 volume and installed VEP 5 there. That eliminated the 'Plugin not found' error. I then had to redo all the input channel assignments in ProTools to see the slightly differently named inputs. That has gotten back to having a working mix. At some point, I'll try upgrading to VEP 6 and seeing if all remains good.
