VCV newbees here…rack 2 worked on my Mac with no issues. Just installed rack 2 on my PC running Win10. Just 12 of the fundamental VCV modules were in the library (see screenshot). I tried to update, it
told me that all plugins have been downloaded and needed to relaunch, so I did, but still only 12 modules were there. Any ideas of what might be the issue here?
If the suggestions above don’t solve your problem, try closing VCV Rack, then look in your user folder for the file log.txt. You can use Notepad or your favorite text editor to open and read that file. Whenever Rack is acting weird in any way, reading the logfile often helps diagnose the problem quickly. Feel free to post any errors reported in the logfile here if you can’t make sense of them.
Hmmm that’s a good point…I think when I installed VCV in windows i specified the local C drive, but somehow the files that contains log and settings files all ended up in the H drive, which is a shared drive…maybe that’sthe soruce of the problem.
Thanks for the clarification! Yes settings.json, not jason (typo!). The document fodler is on a shared (or cloud) drive, different from where the program was installed (which i specified when it was being installed)…do you know how to move the document folder?
Yeah. I seem to recall seing on my work Windows PC at some point during the last year or two, that Microsoft was pushing OneDrive very heavily onto people, to the point of being quite diffictult to stop it from running. But the worst was a “helpful” dialog popping up saying something like “would you like to move your documents to OneDrive? It’s sooooo good for you”, and I imagine lots of people having no clue what it means just clicking Ok. So devious and the most stupid idea ever, obviously breaking lots of applications. Microsoft over the latter years has become less of an evil, stupid company, but sometimes the old beast rears its ugly head, and innocent users pay the price.
I don’t know if your H: drive is on OneDrive but perhaps this is what happened.
