SoundForge Pro (11) issue with seeing iZotope RX plugins

Having changed over to a new computer, my SoundForge no longer sees the plugins for iZotope RX. I believe that they are located in the correct folder to be referenced by SF Options/VST set up. I can also see them being scanned, however, they do not show up in the plug in window. I am using SFP11 instead of a more current version that I own (v.15) because v.15 crashes with my Win11 machine. (This is a separate problem, but first things needed in gaining internal access to RX Connect within SFP11). Thanks!

@Bob-Avant SF 11 is 32 bit only. So you can only load 32 bit VST plugins.

Thanks SP. I'll look at the version of RX that I have for that. ..... Just reinstalled RX8.5 and found no option for loading a 32bit version. Only the 64 bit is loaded. That said, I had no problems on my previous Win10 machine.

Is it listed and check-marked in "Options> Preferences> VST Effects"?

Well, that would explain it. Thanks SP. Now, if only my SFP15 would not constantly crash in Win11.....

@Bob-Avant It might help to activate the compatibility mode for an older version of Windows. Make a right click on the Sound Forge shortcut icon and then click on Properties. Here you can enable the compatibility mode for Windows 10, 8 or 7 and maybe it will make Sound Forge 11 run more stable.
