Steinberg Vsti not recognized by Synfire plugin scanning

Halion 5.dll  makes that Synfire chrashes and Halion Sonic and Symphoic orchestra seems to be not recognised too.

As i can see it now : they are installed as 64 bit plugins ( i put Halion5.dll in the soundcase.dll folder )
Note: could be still 32 bit vsti versions in the 64 bit windows folder ?..

All Cognitone plug-ins use the same filename for 32 and 64 bit versions, so you'll need to keep them in separate directories.

I installed Halion 5 64 bit again, but it chrashes in Synfire when scanning: see enclosed pic

Note: also a menuoption for the 32 bit engine in Synfire what still exists :launch audio engine (32 bit)  ?

Yes, you can still run the 32 bit Engine. It's just that the 64 bit Engine is now used by default.

The Scanner should never crash. I'll have a look.

BEX64 error ..is not related with Synfire ? 
Another screenshot: now is HAlion5.dll the culprit?

Difficult to tell, as Scanner does virtually nothing. It loads the plug-in (links to the VST dll) and looks into its specs (number of channels, etc). Why this would crash Scanner is beyond me. Nevertheless I'll have a look into it.

BTW: Scanner starts a child process (also Scanner.exe) for each plug-in, so a crash will not block it from scanning all other plug-ins. So if you see a crash, the scanning should continue.

I do a new test reinstall for the working version 1.7.18b9  ..let's see if the HAlion 64 bit Vsti is working here  
Note: could be that i remove too much code with the REVO uninstaller..i suddenly realize now
I seems to be turns out in a ....?
AVG virus scanner is now removing Engine.exe in the 1.7.18b9 install..but i seems i cannot restore back Synfire to the wanted configuration
It is leading to nowhere at the moment...luckily there is no pressure on this issue.

Never experienced this installation difficulties before... screen : Cognitone audio Engine Setup screen  ..shows C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\VstPlugins\ 

I downloaded a new version .. Synfire plugin scanner chrashes again on Halion5.dll ..  Can the audio engine handle Halion5.dll ?
How about other users of Halion5 with the Synfire 1.8 ..no problem?
