We don't like the registry either. It is used to store the location of the DLL, that is all.

This does not mean that the one folder can't have subfolders for presets and other stuff that move along with it
You can do this if you follow the correct procedure. It is not possible for us to know where you moved the folder, so some mechanism is required so that the user can tell Alchemy where the folder was moved to. This is done by running setup again, so that the config file is properly updated and the shortcuts set.A lot of plugins can manage this ...
Sure, but a lot of plugins are just a single DLL and don't have multi-GB sample + preset folders.
I'm not a programmer myself but is there really "no way around that"? I have omnisphere, it does not save the location of the .DLL anywhere and you can freely move it anywhere you want and point your DAW to that folder and it will work. You can even manually move the entire sound library and the plugin will just ask you where you put it the next time you load. Again, not a programming guru, but shouldn't it be fairly easy to have a program look for the location it itself resides in?
Thanks for the reply. It's good to hear that there's been progress on the installer front etc., remember to include those in changelogs, I look for those carefully
