'Error reading S-Gear registry entries' after updating to v2.9

'Error reading S-Gear registry entries'

This error indicates that your host is loading the old v2.7 version of the S-GearVST2 plug-in.

Please check that there are no copies of S-Gear2_x64.dll in your VST folders. If so, please delete.

Then add the S-Gear VST2 folder to the list of folders scanned by the DAW:
C:\Program Files\Scuffham Amps\S-Gear_VST\

This should resolve the problem.
