First I am running both Sonar and energyXT, not Cubase, and I believe that both Sonar and eXT work with VSTs differently than Cubase, so putting the pdvst folder where Sonar/eXT is will not work.

put the folder where the main app.exe is 'running' from. this is usually Sonar/. youn override this by creating a shortcut and adjusting the properties.. i hardcoded my plugin to always just look in c:\local\lib\pd since i used so many diff vst hosts.. so just pd-gain.dll in vstplugins/ and everything else in Sonar/ including the config file i think..

there are lots of solutions, depending on what you want, stuff like vst~->freewire/soundbus, midiyoke, or switching to a POSIX compliant OS and using JACK are all options

i'd try getting it working in audiomulch or bidule first, so you can see what is going on
