Vegas 19 - Steinberg Halion 6 conflict

Does anyone know where Vegas collects its vst dll's in ?

I recently reinstalled my pc again

Steinberg Halion 6 is a vst based sampler and needs a licence usb stick.

If I open Vegas 19 , I get the notification that it needs the Halion licence key or else it closes Vegas.

Halion is software I use with my keyboard and Cubase. It is not really usable in Vegas

So I would like to remove Halion from Vegas so I don't need to put in the memory key

 

Thanks

Johnny

VST plugins could be in a number of locations including C:\Program Files\VST Plugins, C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Vstplugins, and/or the same sub-folders under C:\Program Files (x86).

Yes I know ,

And I don't want Halion to stop working in Cubase because I need that

I just want Vegas to stop asking about it ;-)

You asked ...

Your response to "VST plugins could be in a number of locations including C:\Program Files\VST Plugins, C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Vstplugins, and/or the same sub-folders under C:\Program Files (x86)."

Yes I know

If you already knew that, it's curious as to why you needed to ask the question?

How about removing the Halion dll from any of those folders and moving it/them to another folder - assuming that Cubase has a VST folder search function that can select that other folder. Or in Vegas Pro go to Options/Preferences/VST Effects (tab) and remove the folder path/s to the VST folder/s where the Halion 6.dll is stored.
