FL Studio 12 - Sytrus plugin not found

Hi there,

I've installed FL Studio 12 Signature Bundle (got the Box Version of FL 11, recently and downloaded the FL 12 installer).

It worked fine for a few days.
Today I used the Autogun-Plugin for the first time. I didn't save anything - just checked out a few patches.
After that, the Sytrus Plugin could no longer be found.

So I reinstalled FL Studio 12 from the installer. Sytrus could still not be found.
So I uninstalled FL Studio 12 using Control Panel / Uninstall program, then rebooted, then reinstalled FL Studio 12. Sytrus could still not be found.
I've used the current installer (12.0.1).

Sytrus is in the "Installed" Plugins list - not under "VST", but under "Fruity".

This folder is suddenly there and empty - there are others, too but they are not empty:
C:\Users\CeFK\Documents\Image-Line\Data\Sytrus\

This folder was there all along and contains the dll's and artwork-folder, etc:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Image-Line\FL Studio 12\Plugins\Fruity\Generators\Sytrus\

So I copied the contents of this folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Image-Line\FL Studio 12\Plugins\Fruity\Generators\Sytrus\
into that folder:
C:\Users\CeFK\Documents\Image-Line\Data\Sytrus\

Same result: Sytrus could not be found.

I have a project, that I wanna continue working on, but I can't without Sytrus, because it is inside of it.

Also:
After the reinstall, the default-Song that loads at the first start of FL Studio (which also contains Sytrus)
gave me that error-message that Sytrus could not be found and if I would like to search on google or kvr for it.

I've also read of a workaround that might have worked for FL Studio 11:
1. Make a template, which contains Sytrus be the default template.
2. Fire up FL Studio - if Sytrus is not found, close FL Studio again and try again after 2 Seconds.

This also doesn't work for me.

I've also read that making sytrus your favourite plugin might work, but I've tried that .. and it doesn't.

Oh .. and when I try to add Sytrus to an empty Project, the same error-message appears.
And there is a Sampler added instead of Sytrus.

Could you please fix this bug .. soon.

Cheers
Fabian

EDIT - I FOUND A SOLUTION:
After waiting a few day for an answer, I finally snapped and did the following (which worked for me):
1. Uninstall all software, that even remotely has to do with image-line/fl-studio (including asio-drivers, etc).
2. Delete any leftover folders (C:\Windows\Programs\Image-Line and C:\Windows\Programs (x86)\Image-Line, etc)
3. In the start-menu (I forgot to mention, I use Windows7 Professional 64Bit), type in "regedit" and hit return - this will bring up the registry editor (Be careful, if you never used it, you can seriously damage your windoze-installation if you don't know, what you're doing .. it's best to backup everything, before continuing - you have been warned)
4. Press CTRL+f to open the registry-search, type in "image-line" and hit return
5. Whatever keys have "image-line" in it will be found (one by one) and you need to delete those registry-entries (you can continue searching for the next item by pressing F3)
6. Repeat step 5 until you're through the whole registry (this may take a while, since there are quite a few entries)
7. Close the registry editor and reboot your computer.
8.1. If Windows comes up again without any cryptic error-messages (this means you have succeeded without bricking your windows-installation), install your product-registration-key and FL Studio again.
8.2. If you bricked your windows-installation, restore from the backup, you hopefully have. Follow steps 1 through 7 while trying to be a little less excessive when deleting registry-entries.
9. Enjoy using FL Studio until it breaks again for no appearant reason ... in that case hopefully Image-Line has provided a better solution or a bugfix .. if not, repeat steps 1 through 9.

Cheers
Fabian
