Perhaps a minor thing, but could be easily adjusted:
The Sonarworks updater /installer provides no options for an installation path (unlike many other plugin installers), nor does it remember the path of where the last update is installed. Instead, it automatically installs the VST2 plug into ProgramFiles/VSTPlugins.
Like many, I locate my VST2 Plugins under ProgramFiles/Steinberg/VSTPlugins (and sub-dirs for vendors with larger plugin counts etc). In the case of a Sonarworks update, it keeps reverting to ProgramFiles/VSTPlugins & of course ignoring the earlier plugin version located at ProgramFiles/Steinberg/VSTPlugins. This erroneously results in an error message and requests an update once a DAW has been launched and instantiates the plug on one of its buses.
Easy enough to relocate the updated plug of course, but, a path prompt for the installer update would be in keeping with best practices as per other vendor's installers, and just a little less of a niggle.
