VSTi support by AdobeAudition 3.0

I don't know if it is a good place for this topic, but I must try. Sorry I'm not using .NET, but only SDK in C++, but I think the problem does not depend on the programming method. What do you think what could be the reason for accepting/refusing some VSTi's by Adobe Audition 3.0? I tried to load a Steinberg's sample "VstXSynth" and AA doesn't want to load it. It appears as "Unsupported". This plugin works correctly on VSTHost (and I think it does on other well-made hosts, too). I compared VSTXSynth with AA3 plugins and with Addictive Drums sampler and there aren't any important differences in specification (number of programs, i/o channels, flags IsSynth/ProcessReplacing etc.), so I don't know what could be the reason for unsupporting this example plug-in. VSTXSynth doesn't have editor, but non-editor VST (effects) plugins are supported by AA3. I think it's only the issue of a simple parameter, which disqualifies Steinberg's plugin by AA3. I removed a lot of code from this plugin and now it does really nothing and still it is unsupported. In the init section there is only: if (audioMaster) { setNumInputs (0); setNumOutputs (2); canProcessReplacing (); isSynth (); setUniqueID ('DrRF'); } It's quite strange because I think that commercial Steinberg's instruments work correctly with AA3, but the example from SDK doesn't. Thanks for any help.

Perhaps the KVR Audio forum would be more appropriate to ask this question.

Hope it helps.

I found solution. Plugin have to have editor (effFlagsHasEditor flag set).
