For Fl, you have to drag the .dll file of the plugin into the vst folder of Fl Studio. You might want to include that before people start complaining.

You can use share folder for all the applications that using VSTs.
In my case I have:

E:\Program Files\VstPlugins - 64bits based VSTs
E:\Program Files (x86)\VstPlugins - 32bits based VSTs

Then you have to tell all the software that using where to find the VSTS.

I think Sylenth1 is x86 only which means that it won't show up in the x64 Version of Ableton. (or vice versa, can't remember)

Do the plugins use the same architecture (32 or 64 bit) as the version of Ableton you have installed?
