Wow..I haven't tried it, and I have the complete V5 bundle. Why do you think? Is it just not showing up or does it crash?
So, I did a complete uninstall,and scanned my whole computer to make sure no traces of it. Downloaded a new installation (it was same version as before), and did a clean install. Cubase 10.0.50 blacklisted them. By reactivating them, they now work for Cubase 10.0.50

However, Cubase 10.5.0 blacklisted them with a comment of "Crashed". When I tried to reactivate the plugs, it crashed Cubase.

EDIT: Turns out I wasnt running Cubase 10.5.0 as administrator. As soon as I relaunched as administrator in Windows 10, I was able to reactivate all the soundtoy 5 plugs, and run them. Whew!

Awesome. And sounds like it's a Windows issue? I'm on a Mac, so hopefully no problems. Thanks for sharing.

I wasnt running Cubase 10.5 as administrator. That was the problem.
I’ve never ran Cubase as admin and you shouldn’t ever have to. Running a program as admin in Windows tends to break cross-program functionality as well, such as file drag-and-drop from Explorer into Cubase.

Yeah I use SoundToys on Cubase 10 all the time. Sounds like flatten-and-reinstall time :-(

..again bought more than I planned to, also when I consider several intro sales and crossgrades the months before..

..the voices say I earned it..
..the other voices argue that ..

I don't know. I got the BF headache, I guess 🤷‍♂️

That's odd as Admin gives you more privileges not less so that makes no sense!
Not quite. Programs should, during setup, establish all permissions needed to operate on their own, and running as an admin should never be a constant requirement. There's a lot of cross-program functions I use in Cubase that break when I run it in admin mode that makes it a non-issue for me to stay off of it, and if certain plugins require the entire host plugin to run in admin mode, then there's something wrong with the install or the devs took some lazy route. But again, I have loads of stuff and never run in admin mode and I don't run into issues myself.

It should work generally either way I'd have thought so sounds like more of a Cubase issue than Admin issue.
