ExpressFX not loading in Acid Pro 11

I purchased a copy of Acid 11 Pro with the bundles of effects, plugins etc. I'm having trouble using the VSTs labled "ExpressFX" . They seem to be installed but then when I click on them I get the following error:

"The Plug-in could not be run. One or more of the components required to run this plugin may be missing.  If a hardware key (dongle)  is needed to operate the plugin, ensure that it is properly installed. The COM object failed to initialize"

Honestly I have the CORE and there are other effects that show up as "eFX " which work fine and I'd be happy with just those and my other chosen plugins. . But then there are over a dozen different ones that list as ExpressFX and they give the error. If they don'nt work I'd prefer to have them removed but don't know how to do that.

Thanks for any/all help!

Thank you! I had not seen that. From it seems to say basically the express FX are no longer supported? That's not a deal breaker for me but I'm not sure how to get them out of the listing of effects. Perhaps just deleting the C:\Program Files\VstPlugins\MAGIX\essentialFX Suite folder? I don't see any means to uninstall or remove them in the VST window in Acid Pro

@LegionHWP I currently don't have Acid installed, so I'm not sure what ExpressFX are.

But essentialFX are something different. These are VST plugins, not DirectX plugins.
