Dumb quest. . . OFX FXs installed, where?

Hello my VegHead friends, I want to get a list of the OFX that are installed on my PC. How do I go about it?

Hi Grazie, there are two directories where you will find your OFX plugins:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\OFX\Plugins
C:\Program Files\Sony\Vegas Pro 13.0\OFX Video Plug-Ins

The first one is where you will find most 3rd party packages, while the second is more for the intrinsic ones.

Thank you Peter. No other place? Do these things have a generic suffix?

Grazie, as you have probably surmised, the plugins themselves end in ".ofx". Generally they are packaged in a ".bundle" sub-directory in the locations I had mentioned. For example:
../Magic Bullet Suite/MagicBulletLooks.ofx.bundle/Content/Win64/MagicBulletLooks.ofx
../Red Giant Universe/Universe_Utilities_Unmult_OFX.ofx.bundle/Contents/Win64/Universe_Utilities_Unmult_OFX.ofx

In addition to the two directories mentioned already, they can also be installed in any directory listed in the OFX_PLUGIN_PATH environment variable. You can find the contents of that variable (if any) by typing the following at a command line prompt (often incorrectly referred to as the DOS prompt):


(Don’t forget the two percent signs.) If no such variable exists in your environment, the echo command will just print the %OFX_PLUGIN_PATH% as if it was literal text. If, however, such a variable does exist, the echo command will print its contents instead, which will either be a single path or several paths separated by a semicolon. And if it does exist, Vegas will search the path/paths listed in the variable while searching for the OFX files (in addition to the two already mentioned). They will follow the same directory structure as those in the C:\Program Files\OFX\Plugins directory.
