Session Drummer 2 & Sonar 7?

It must be me, but maybe somebody can help me out. Any clues, after many uninstalls and reinstalls, as to why do not see SD2 as a choice in my Soft Synths?

I can admit being a moron, if someone can point me in the right direction :) - Cakewalk Email Support has blown me off for a few days now... many thanks!

    go to the plugin in manager (in the tools menu) and see if it is there. It might be disabled for some reason - if so enable it as see what happens.

    I'm having this same problem also. Before I updated S7 to 7.0.1, Session Drummer 2 was listed under Soft Synths. It was also listed as a plugin on Ableton Live (I'm new to Sonar), and I was able to use it.

    I updated to 7.0.1 today, and Session Drummer 2 is now gone from both programs. All my plugins are located in the same folder on my drive, and that folder has been scanned numerous times in both Sonar and Live. Neither program has been able to recognize SD2.

    All of SD2's files are still intact in its folders, including the SessionDrummer2.dll file. I can't say for sure that it was the update that made this happen, but that's when I noticed it.

    Is there a way to uninstall SD2 only, without uninstalling Sonar?

    Sorry you too are having this issue, but at least I know I'm not alone... hopefully someone can from Cakewalk can comment.

    Thanks for the lead, Robert - I had tried that and it doesn't show up for either enabled or excluded plugins. Also, Like Crono, all the files are on my drive as well... appreciate the attempt!

    Sabu, did you by any chance just update to 7.0.1?

    I did - but I think it was gone in 7.0 as well.

    Think I have it figured out... did you install and/or setup your plugins somewhere else than in the default directory? I had. I then changed everything to the default - C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\VstPlugins - and then worked. Do it from the install disc and see if that helps...

    Hey Sabu, I've figured it out, and it's similar to, but not exactly the same as what you did.

    I have a VSTs folder where I put all my VSTs. So, when I first installed Sonar, I installed the all the VSTs in my custom folder. From there, Sonar and Ableton Live were both able to recognize all the VSTs that came with Sonar 7. But I was doing some folder managing/maintennance on my system, and I moved all the VSTs to a different location. Sonar and Live were both able to rescan the VSTs from that location, except for SessionDrummer2.

    I moved SD2 back to the original location in which I had installed it into, and now both programs are able to scan and recognize SD2. This is the only VST which has this problem. So for me, it didn't have to be under the Cakewalk program folder, but it needed to be in the exact location that it was originally installed in, or else the programs couldn't scan it.

    Weird.

    Yeah, when it gets reinstalled, it apparently does not update the path in the registry. Hopefully this will be fixed in a subsequent patch.
