That has absolutely nothing to do with the DAW. And yes Soundtoys did it right and kept the same plugin IDs.
The DAW does play a part because a bug was just reported with this not working with plugins that have a hyphenated name on Reaper, so a change was needed there to resolve it. So's not entirely DAW-agnostic like you say.
That's an odd one, not a Reaper user so not sure what's up with that. They should be going by the internal plugin ID, not the name, maybe Reaper does things a little differently. So far everything has filled in where it should here in old projects in Ableton Live and Cubase.. I didn't bother installing the VST2s this time since Im a Mac/Cubase user primarily and everything has been smooth sailing so far.

Not all Daws use that, so yeah it definitely is not DAW agnostic.

The Repear thing I believe was just fixed on Reaper's end.

I wrote Soundtoys support about my missing plugins like a month ago and never heard back. They even said to write them about this in a mailing. I was hoping to get a good upgrade price when they have the sale they announced but looks like that won't happen.
