How to avoid VST Scan on Maschine SW?

Is there a way to bypass Maschine software from scanning vst folders every time it opens? Takes forever to open when you have a ton of different vsts.

Would like to be able to run an initial scan and then just run a manual scan anytime you make a change.

    Press ESC during the scan to skip it.

    This program scans plug ins every start up then gets stuck. This is really pitiful. I mean… don’t the devs test this stuff before releasing it? I really hate this program. I can’t even use it because it cannot get past a freaking plug in scan.😡

    The person saying it’s all on Steinberg, is correct. When I open up Cubase 12, the software won’t launch until you accept the list of “errors, the software couldn’t find presets for….. Now after you just push the acceptance ok button, bam u r on Cubase 12. Now I have been using Steinberg Cubase for many many many years. Two things I have learned. First, it you try to delete a program for any reason, Cubase won’t open. So I would be careful about trying to fix the Hangups on the startup VST/Au scans on the Machine or Komplete Kontrol startups. These “side”programs got installed when you loaded Cubase initially and thought they were giving you extra VST instruments and content just to be nice. They fooled you. Now Machine/Komplete Kontrol, should have an easy fix for just scanning the instruments and fx once. Then, they should only scan new software instruments and effect Instruments that have been added since your last startup. They don’t. Also be very careful about free fx pluggins that tempt you. They may also have a list of “Time-out” demos that will also screw you up when you scan your pluggins. For me, the solution is to run Machine and Komplete Kontrol inside of a daw. That way, you avoid the timeless scans. If Native Instruments is reading this, there should be a one time only, or just a “passing by” for timeout VST/Au instruments that have expired. Anyway, for sure it’s Steinberg and be sure, make a change on Cubase, good luck.
