The fact that it had to take 7-10 years for this feature to be implemented, yet still not fully implemented - where is the shortcut ? Sure, you can tick a box once you are actually IN the app...duh....what about for those of us who have this issue and have to force quit because it hangs during VST install...of which I have zero...clean fresh Monterey install. Happened after installing latest SWS and DrivenByMoss - nothing else - zero reason for Reaper to do this shit scan let alone hang in the process.

You spend since 2013 discussing this topic, instead of all agreeing to FIX the problem.

People are +1 ing the topic because clearly it is NOT ONLY FOR THE FEW WHEN IT IS STILL HAPPENING, EVEN ON A SYSTEM WHERE NO VST IS OR HAVE BEEN YET INSTALLED.


FIX THE ISSUES THAT PEOPLE MENTION AND QUIT YOUR EXUSES !

FYI: I believe this is a user discussion forum only, so you can't make support calls or feature requests here. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that kind of post probably will not be answered with a "fix" of the "issues" by Cockos.

"REAPER won't scan the same plugin twice. If REAPER is hanging or crashing when scanning a particular plugin, restart REAPER and it will skip that plugin.

Unfortunately some plugins come in bundles that may contain many plugins that all crash the same way. In this situation REAPER will appear to be stuck on one particular plugin but it's actually working its way through the bundle. If you keep restarting REAPER, eventually it will get through all the plugins.

Because the scan is a one-time process, there isn't a keyboard shortcut to bypass it, although we might as well add one if only because this takes a long time to explain when it does come up. As mentioned up-thread, you can force the option "scan new/updated plugins on startup" to be disabled by going to the REAPER resource directory (with REAPER closed) and opening REAPER.ini, and searching for "vst_scan=". If the search finds nothing, then add the line vst_scan=2. If the line already exists, add 2 to the number, for example if it is currently vst_scan=8 then change it to vst_scan=10."
