Windows has official rules for this. Users are
no longer allowed to add
random files to an application's directory in "/Program Files/Appname".
Oh! This is news to me -- interesting news too, given that I
distribute Windows versions of SV without an installer and just expect
the user to copy it to %ProgramFiles% if they want it to go there, and
that it only looks in immediate subdirectories of %ProgramFiles% for
plugins of any sort.
I don't recall anyone complaining to me that they couldn't install
plugins for it -- maybe this just means nobody is using it?!
Can you point to any documentation for this? I'd like to know what
other rules I might be falling afoul of.
User installed plugins go in
CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES_COMMON , e.g. typically
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\LADSPA Plugins..."
I don't suppose you happen to know whether any Windows-based LADSPA
hosts are actually using this path?
I'm going to delete my Windows installation, but if I can help by
keeping it and you ask me explicit to test some behaviour I will do it.
