Hi everyone. I need some help from you good people if you can.
I'm trying to completely reinstall Reason11 after a plugin (soothe2 update) problem.

I've gone and delteted the app, deleted prefferences, deleted cache files, deleted app support folder.
I've reinstalled R11 and it's got all my Reason browser favs still there, plugins remembered, and soothe1&2 still crashing so I'm missing something but what?

Any help offered would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I dont think reinstalling Reason helps to make a buggy VST work.
:reason: 11, Win10 64Bit.

More likely you need to reset the VST's cache rather than Reason.

Me neither. But I've run the uninstallers for soothe 1&2, deleted all that, and something somewhere is remembering something.
Soothe 1 and 2 run as separate plugs, they run in parallel, so why would 2 effect 1? The only thing that seems to be remembering anything is Reason at this point. Soothe 1 sould be able to run with a reinstall since the installation of soothe2 knocked it all out.
That's my rteasoning.

Did that on both versions.

Point is the only thing that isn't a blank slate is Reason reinstall.
Reason 11 worked with soothe1.3.2 before the installation of soothe2, then both versions crashed.
So how do I get back to R11 and soothe1.3.2?

Have you tried just having one version of the vst installed? Maybe having them both is spinning something out. I can't think of anything else. Get in touch with the devs support maybe?

For the record, I found the bastard Reason files. App suport files with all the Fav preferences.
Deleted them and soothe 1&2 running smooth on Reason 11

It seemed rude to just walk off somehow
