Just download Nebula Setup 2.5 and everything went well during installation and all.

One thing I noticed is regarding the Acqua plugins Management. When I clicked on it, I went and assign the Path where all my Acqua plugins are installed but I noticed that Neb Setup 2.5 Acqua image GUI are not all up to date example: PEARL ain't there. Is this normal?

Take a look at the screenshot I shared. Question is do I have to go and add the img file myself?

Last but not least, when I click on Update Selected Acqua plugin I get this error msg:

Thanks in advance ;-)
You'll get that error if you have not set up the app to find the Acqua dll's AND the "template" dll that the app uses to make the updates.

Yes you need it. As described, this MAGIC string must be unique for each setup - this is plugin's identification. You can define MAGIC parameter as a local tweak (see Tweaks in the User's Guide).

This value is used for AU setups as well.

In the next maintenance release, "Steinberg VST" will be changed to "VST/AU" to avoid further confusion.

MAGIC is not really something new in the plugin world and i don't see it confusing at all (i guess it is just me). Some VST hosts (not all, though) also require the unique MAGIC value of each VST setup, so users have to take care about it in the same way as with AU's. This is something you can't ignore.

Maybe in the future Nebula Setups will be able to manage these MAGIC strings automatically, but can't promise anything atm.

Franci

Hey Franci
Apologies for venting my frustration out on you :D
I finally got grips with your SW and I now have a lovely organised folder of plugins
load times is a huge improvement ,workflow is greatly improved too!!
might i suggest a walk through Video for noobs ?
I'm usually good at picking up new SW but it had me baffled for a few hours
