LinkWindows to %appdata%
Hey, I tried to move my samples to product folder in %appdata% I put proper path in LinkWindows but when I loading VST it create %appdata% folder in the same place where .vst file is.

Not sure I understand.
%APPDATA%is just an internal wildcard on Windows that gets redirected to the user's app data directory. Have you put this exact string into the LinkWindows File?
I tried to play with this option again but without success. I have LinkWindows file with path like this
%APPDATA%/Roaming/My Company/My Plugin/Samples
and when im loading plugin instead this path i got something like
C:/Program Files/FL Studio/%APPDATA%/Roaming/My Company/My Plugin/Samples
I don't how to point to %APPDATA% folder.

first open a cmd window.
then type %APPDATA%
-- does that return the value you think it should?
Yes, without problems.
My LinkWindows has only %appdata% and that's how it look inside vst

@arminh Show us the contents of your LinkWindows file, and also the path to that file.
@d-healey this is my content in LinkWindows
@arminh Why is that in there? Did you put that in manually?
Yes, i put it manualy because i want store samples in product folder because wav has less then 50mb
@arminh The LinkWindows file should point to the location of the samples - either
@d-healey yes i know it, but even when i have proper path to samples folder plugin create %appdata% folder inside DAW. Tested in Studio One and FL. That's how it looks when i have correct path to samples
%APPDATA%\My Company\My Plugin\Samples

That isn't a proper path. Type
%APPDATA%\My Company\My Plugin\Samplesinto the file browser path and hit enter.
Type %APPDATA%\My Company\My Plugin\Samples into the file browser path and hit enter.
I tested it even with cmd cd, and windows explorer and it's poiting me to corretct folder.
I wanted to skip normal sample installation/folder chooser
Hey you're right! Been so long since I've used Winedoze.
You need to put a "normal" file path in there. For example this is what is in my Sofia Woodwinds LinkWindows file
