Logic Pro X can't open Spitfire Audio's LABS

Hi, I've worked with LABS for a couple years now, and yesterday everything was fine, but today I booted up my Mac (iMac 2012) and I got a very troublesome message saying LABS couldn't be opened. LABS is part of SpitFire Audio, which is an app on its own, so it's not located in Logic's VST folder. I've tried rescanning the plugin, this was the log.

 

validating Audio Unit LABS by Spitfire Audio:

    AU Validation Tool
    Version: 1.6.1a1 
    Copyright 2003-2013, Apple Inc. All Rights Reserved.
    Specify -h (-help) for command options

--------------------------------------------------
VALIDATING AUDIO UNIT: 'aumu' - 'SfLb' - 'SpFi'
--------------------------------------------------
Manufacturer String: Spitfire Audio
AudioUnit Name: LABS
Component Version: 1.5.1 (0x10501)

* * PASS
--------------------------------------------------
TESTING OPEN TIMES:
COLD:
FATAL ERROR: OpenAComponent: result: -1,0xFFFFFFFF


validation result: couldn’t be opened

I don't know why it worked yesterday and not today? Haven't done any updates that I'm aware of.

Please help

LABS is a plugin, and is indeed located in the AU component plugin folder (Logic doesn't use the VST format for plugins).

Maybe try reinstalling it?

It's not in my Components folder, most of my plugins aren't. I've tried deleting and reinstalling SpitFire as a whole as well as labs but neither worked.

"LABS.component" is the Labs plugin.

Make sure you've checked both plugin folders:
/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components
/Users/*you*/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components

If it shows up in Logic, it's an AU, and it's in one of those two folders - unless it's been deleted possibly and the cache isn't updated yet.

Reboot, or type "killall -9 AudioComponentRegistrar" into terminal, and restart Logic.

You won't see it in Logic normally if it's not validating, so after you reinstalled it, open Logic's plugin manager and try to reset and rescan selection for the labs plugin.
