Hey Saverio, I raised a ticked but it's a bit hit-and-miss on Windows 10. On my main DAW I get a script error every time and I can't log in. On another PC I got the error about 5 times and then it let me log in ok. When it worked, it worked very well.

Also, if I click on the hornet link in the text, I get sent to a website called kidzout.com. Cool website but my kids are both at university so not so useful to me

Hi thank you for reporting, except for the wrong website address, would you mind telling me which error you get when launching the app?

Very handy plugin Saverio, single click to install/update all would be sweet

Also please remember username and plugin over more than one session

Haha yes, I suggested exactly the same things in my support ticket to Saverio earlier. Just being able to hit Update All and not worry about which ones have been updated would be awesome.

That seems like a good thing for people who - like me - now own several Hornet plugins. Will try tomorrow!

Just tested DoIn and all in all it works nicely, make it easy to manage my dozen+ Hornet plugins.

Positive:
I can select which plugin format i want to install (NI and several other vendors: this is how it's done!)
Simple. no-nonsense app, no installation needed (again, other vendors, take notice)

Weird problem: The first time I started it (as a normal user), I got a script error message. I then did a "run as administrator" and it worked, weirdly, after that, even if I started it as a non-privileged user, it always asked for administrator permissions.

Feature requests (of course! )
- It would be nice if DoIn could somehow show which versions of the plugins I already have installed. As of now, I have to boot my DAW, open the plugin manager and check manually. Or install every plugin, whether it is current or not.
- +1 on "update all"

Yes, I got the same error on Win 10. It converted the backslashes into double backslashes creating an invalid plug in path. I also initially got the Javascript error.

I think there needs to be some beta testing before things are released to everyone.

Hi everyone, thank you for the positive reactions and the suggestions and also for the bug reports.

We have a new version of the tool for download that should fix the issues with windows and improve the overall experience on mac too.

Unless there are more platform bug like this one we should be able to push updates transparently so in the next months we'll add all the features requested and also fix smaller bugs without you needing to re-download the utility.

It's a small thing, but it would be nice to be able to copy/paste the Name and Password, rather than typing them each time.
