such as Native Instruments, Izotope etc. but sometimes
this is ignored by the DAW. Perhaps I should return to
this practice so at least I know what is going on.

I am still a bit confused about VST3 location.

the other problem is a few DAW's only give you one location to
point to for the VST's. The DAW may not like C:\Program Files
and C:\Program Files (x86). Now what?
What are you confused about the VST3 location?

I haven't found a DAW that doesn't like the "defaults" suggested by Steinberg, or what it finds in the Windows Registry (if it looks for them). And I've installed 5 or 6 different DAWs on my system (and others).
