Slate Digital Annual Bundle issues

I went for the Slate Digital Annual Bundle and reading that it supports RTAS I went for it to try it out. It was a disaster! When I try to use one of their plugins, they crash just like Trigger which I had for awhile. I get the perpetual spinning ball and it stays like that.Some of them worked at first, but then they stop working. I think that my mistake was not noticing that it supports from OS X 10.7 and up, but Slate's Trigger does the same thing and I have to re install it to work.
I'm using a 2009 Mac Pro 2.93, 8 core with 24gigs of RAM, OS X 10.6.8, Pro Tools 9.06 HD5 with a ton of plugins and it has been quite stable for a long time. I talk to their support and they have tried to help via emails but they haven't been much help at all. They just give me the usual technical fixes and it's been 2 weeks and must of their plugins aren't working. They don't sound very enthusiastic in helping you.
I've bought many plugins recently and they work right away with absolutely no issues. I'm starting to thing that I wasted my money or should've at least try their demos.
I usually don't post issues with my system because I usually resolve the problem and also because people answer saying "I've been using these plugins for x amount of time and I have no issues" and they offer no help.
I just removed them so I can continue working hoping that I didn't waste $299. If anyone has any ideas, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

You can't run the latest builds for pt9. I'm still on 10HD and I cannot use the latest builds of some of the plugins. Especially vbc. Try the next to latest build of vbc. On 10HD this was stable. If I use the latest vbc my rig dies the spinning beach ball of death. Im in a 12 core mac pro desktop with 64 gigs ram.
