I am guessing you are on a Mac since you were advised to drag the application to the trash (please update your
ucp.php?i=profile&mode=signature signature if possible). You might want to try an app like App Zapper or Hazel if you are trying to remove everything. You can always remove everything if you want to go for broke but I would first back everything up if you have anything you want to keep. The VST will remove all third party plug-ins as well so not advisable but if you are just trying to start from scratch.

/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/
/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3/
/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/

And from your user library
~/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/
~/Library/Preferences/Cubase 8.5/
~/Library/Audio/Steinberg/
~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/

Hi
thanks for the reply I didn't want to start from scratch I just want to get rid of the vst connect it is messing with the start up of cubase it seems a bit poor that I should have to start again.

I have no idea if you don't have files in these two locations, maybe someone else can chime in. My only thought was to remove these files by first backing them up and starting back up and making sure it is gone. If so add them one by one until you narrow it down, not fun but it really should be the two files listed above I would think. Best of luck.

Thanks skillet
I have been talking to steinberg through e mail but they have the same advice I have evan thought about buying the stupid thing but I don't think I would ever use it, it's so frustrating buying an expensive program then having all this trouble with a trial and the best of it is I didn't evan open the thing sort it out steinburg :evil:

Yes there really should be a separate uninstaller for each of those demos, sorry for all troubles.

The following sequence worked for me;
1) goto Devices
2) select Plug-in Info
3) select Program Plug-ins
4) uncheck VST Con Pro

hope this helps...

Where do I find "Devices"? I'm having the same problem with Cubase 10.0.5 and tried everything else, also don't have these two files

/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3/Steinberg/VST Connect PRO
/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/Components/vstconnectpro.bundle

so I'm hoping this is it! But where do I find "Devices"? Thanks
