Yea I tried it. I created the folder where you suggested but there is no tab for VST pluggins in the Options panel.
Check out the picture I've included.......update...The Presonus server won't let me send a file, great!

I think Presonus has defeated your technique. They are determined to not let people use VST with Artist.

Also, I don't have Guitar Rig, or EZdrummer working inside Studio One either. I tried running Studio One in Administrator mode per someones instruction, but that didn't make it appear. If it's working, does Guitar Rig show up in the Instruments or Effects tab?


Hmmm!

By now I don't have the option to test it out again. I sold my license of S1 Pro and am trying to "downgrade" to S1A. But so far it doesn't work on my offline PC. I DID delete S1 Pro and re-installed v1.6.1 after closing down the PC and so on. But everytime I start S1 again the full version shows up again. So, if anybody knows how to solve this ... jump in.

But anyway ... By using my way (see above) there WON'T be showing up any VST tab for a plugin path. This sin't available in S1A. But by copying the plugins DLLs into the newly created "VSTplugins" folder one should be able to use them, they should show up in S1A GUI (of course only GR, ezd and Kore Player). At least that DID the trick for me when first tried it. As I said: at the moment I can't try it out again but I will do so when I managed to downgrade my license. I'l call back then.

Go to your user account on PreSonus.com , download the Artist License.

Start S1, go to Activation and off line acitvation, select the artist license.

Close S1 and start S1 again. Then it should be the Artist version.

Thanks Motoko, that worked. Manchmal sieht man den Wald vor lauter Bäumen nicht. If you know what I mean.

So, now I'm on S1 Artist back again ... and it feels nice.

I tried to reconfigure the same setup I used during my first installation of S1A (in May 2010). I added a newly created folder "Vstplugins" to the S1A program path - as described here:
http://oldforumsarchive.presonus.com/showpost.php?p=70264&postcount=4

I then copied the DLLs from Kore Player, Kore Player FX, ezd and Guitar Rig into it.

Result:

- Kore Player and Kore Player FX are working fine (including all add ons, even the commercial ones).
- ezd is working fine as well (including all add ons I own). Nice.

- Guitar Rig DOESN'T work. Hmmmmpfhhhh.

I tried different workarounds without success so far (re-naming the DLL to "Guitar Rig 3" (since S1A comes with a GR 3 LE AFAIK), using "Guitar Rig 4" or only just "Guitar Rig" for the DLL's name). No joy so far.


Now, I guess it's time for an official statement from presonus. Why doesn't Guitar Rig show up? Is it all up to NI again?

Note: S1A COMES with a version of Guitar Rig LE. So, this should be usable, shouldn't it?

Info:
I didn't use the NI serials for Kore Player or Guitar Rig LE that came with S1A. I just used my existing versions. And I guess this shouldn't be an issue in this case.

I know exactly what you mean.

Try installing the GR version that came with S1 to create the default location. You can update after that.

Ah, you mean just installing once and S1A will know what it is. Then it should recognize MY GR version as well?

I will try that.

Find out where the .dll of the S1 supplied GR is installed as that exact location is where S1 will expect the GR plugin.

I can't get GR LE installed. Message "not enough disk space"? Hmm?!? The IS enough space.

The downside is that I HAVE TO install NI Service Center (which isn't necessary at all since I already have in on my HD) but i can't de-tick it during the install process . When the installer is starting to install NI Service Center the disk space message shows up. Any idea?

Boah. This is so silly.

First message came up regarding "disk spaces". I found out that it was something about the DVD drive. OK, I don't know what this could mean. But I changed the drive and used the other one.

Now when the installer reaches the section where Service Center should be getting installed a new message appears - woohoo:


Status:
Computing space requirements

"The folder path "VST plugins" contains an invalid character."

OK, I should go to bed. Sigh ....

Did you name that path? Perhaps it doesn't like the space?

Hi jonathan!

What do you mean with "name the path"?

Is there certain folder that would need to use? Or can I create any folder anywhere?

I tried different options: my default plugin folder on my hd, the newly created "Vstplugin" folder in the S1 program path. No sucess.

Try creating a 'VSTPlugins' folder in the root of your drive. Even if it's temprorary.
