The software does not show up as a plug-in in my DAW (Win)

For VST 3 all XLN plug-ins use the standard path set by Steinberg: C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3

For VST 2:
We're using Addictive Drums 2 in this example, but the same principle applies to all our products.

The most common issue when Addictive Drums doesn't show up in the DAW is that the DAW hasn't found the plug-in file Addictive Drums 2.dll. You may need to change the settings in your DAW so that it is scanning the correct path for the plug-in file.

First of all, run the Online Installer and click on Customize Installation, then head to the Installation paths tab and the VST 2 (64-bit) tab. That page will tell you where the VST 2 64-bit Addictive Drums plug-in DLLs are installed.

The next step is to check the preferences in your DAW. The option is usually named Paths, VST paths or Plug-in paths. In those preferences, add the path to the correct plug-in folder and then hit the Rescan button. After that, you should be able to load Addictive Drums like any other virtual instrument.
