External VSTs seem to be broken

Having trouble with LMMS? Ask about it here.
Guess who's back babyyyyyyy. Third time's the charm and Cakewalk is starting to look very attractive
After reinstalling LMMS due to the reaxcomp issue and the equalizer issue.....now it will not load external VSTs, either with VeSTige or as effect plugins. I've reinstalled some of the VSTs, but even with the paths set LMMS just refuses to load them in new or old projects.

It it literally right there.

...Upon closer inspection, LMMS is using / instead of \. I feel like this may be part of the issue.

If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it.

It is not LMMS that cant use that VST, it is you.
Sorry to have to say, but Your critique is not grounded in reality.
The dll of the VST has to be in the folder where you have your VST-plugin-path. Alter-ego is an effect, not an instrument.
It is also commercial afair, and if you only have a demo, or a illegal copy, it is most likely it wont work. I have not used alter-ego, but afair Brandystarbrite has, i think he even has written a tutorial.
Look for that, or IM Brandy.

With all due respect, you do not know what you're talking about. Alter/Ego is free (at least the voicebank I'm using, Marie Ork, is completely free.) It is a real time singing synthesizer instrument, and I have a video of me using it with VeSTige in the past. There is no "demo" or "illegal copy" unless I was using a voice like ALYS or Leora, who are both discontinued to my knowledge. Both the .dll and the voicebank were in the same folder at the time of that recording as they currently are.

And upon loading the same project file now...

Have you installed LMMS 1.3 instead of 1.2.2? Go back and install the latter and check if it works.
Though, I've done something similar and it shouldn't cause this problem.
Reinstalling after the whole reaxcomp thing won't do anything, by the way.

Oh god I realized what the issue is. I kept downloading the 32 bit version of LMMS by mistake. A/E is 64 bit. I think the worst part is that I've done this before
