Sharing Plugins Between two Versions of OSX on same computer

Postby Dwetmaster » Wed Jan 18, 2017 6:47 pm

Hi. I'm migrating to El Capitan on a separate Partition and Would like to know if there's a way to send all my plugins without having to reinstall them all.

I don't think merely copying the Component folder to the new Partition will cut it.

Any ideas?

That will only work with plugins that don't require a license. Some freebies don't. Even those that use iLok will need to be installed.
