    I think I F'ed up

    Had trouble opening a project in cubase 9.5, saw somewhere you could rename your vst folder so I did. It opened now, but everything loaded in the Kontakts and Play vsts are gone. Is there any way to fix this or do I actually have to load new kontakts and all the instruments again?
