We know it's frustrating when things don't work. However, please help us to help you by following these suggestions:

  1. Update - Before trying anything else. Download and install the latest version of FL Studio from here. Your bug may be fixed already!
  2. Update plugins - If you are using 3rd party plugins. Look at crash logs for their names. Install the latest version for any you spot. See also Plugins Behaving Badly
  3. Simple clear explanation - Explain what you are doing, or trying to do, and exactly what is happening.
  4. Specific information - a) FL Studio version & build number, b) what you are doing and what happens exactly, c) step-by-step instructions how reproduce the problem.
  5. Screenshots - Another great way to demonstrate issues. Get a free screenshot app here. Include images using the 'Attachments' tab, at the bottom of the post edit window.
  6. A video - The best way of demonstrating many issues. Windows 10 includes an integrated screen recorder, see here OR get a free free recorder here. Include mp4 videos to your post from the 'Attachments' tab, at the bottom of the post edit window.
  7. Use English - Google Translate your post. Short simple sentences in your original language translate best. We are happy to work this way, no need to worry.

Updated to 20.1.9, all 3rd party VSTs now broken

Hey all.
I just updated FL to the newest version, only to find exactly what the title says -- I can't load any of my external plugins. They show up on the sidebar, but trying to load any of them gives me an error message, which shows no information at all and just asks "are you sure this is installed correctly?"
The same plugins I'm trying to load now worked this morning when I was finishing a mix before I downloaded the update, so I am completely sure they are installed correctly.
I've already tried rescanning my VST folders, rebooting my machine, and even reverting FL to the version I was using this morning, none of which made any difference.

I'm out of ideas. The only conclusion I have is that the update could have somehow broken fruity wrapper.
I really need these things. I can't work on any project I've made in the last decade without them. Any help is appreciated.
