1. Go to c:/program/image-line/FL8/Plugins/VST (default installation route)
2. Unzip your new VST plugin into that folder. If it’s an .exe file, just run it, and if it’s a .dll file just extract it.
3. Open FL and go to channels/add one/more..
4. Once there you’ll see all the available plugins. The ones with a box ticked with the letter F are active in your library of instruments already, and the ones with a blank box are not yet active. But for now, skip this for a few seconds.
5. Scroll down in that list of VST plugins until you hit the bottom. Press the refresh button and fast scan.
If you’ve done everything right you’ll get a note saying 1 or more plugins found, next to the refresh button.
6. Just tick that box next to the newly installed plugin (marked in red text) and voilá, it’s done!

You can pretty much follow the above steps, as long as you don’t tick the boxes in the instrument window, because if you do it will not end up in the effects list but the instruments list and we don’t want that now do we? So, install the VST plugin like it’s normally done and then go to the mixer by pressing F9.
Once there head over to the effect section of the mixer(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) and press select/more…
Now all you have to do is to hit the refresh button once again and it will list the newly installed VST effect in red color. Tick that box and it’s installed.. in the right place :)
Open Fl Studio, click 'Add' and select 'Manage Plugins'. Next, click 'Start Scan' on the top left of the Plugin Manager window. If you have additional questions, please contact support here. Many newer VST plugins will be compatible with both 32 bit and 64 bit, but you want to make sure you’ve downloaded the right one for your computer. Step 3: Open the FL Studio Plugin Manager. Open up FL Studio, navigate to Options, and then click Manage plugins. A new window will open.
I’m seeing lot of people asking how to install VST plugins into FL Studio so here’s a short guide showing you how to do it.
First of all, you need to have a folder for all your VST plugins somewhere in your hard drive (default is under C:Program Files). If you dont have one, create it and name it to ‘VSTplugins’ for example.
Now, usually VST plugins (most of the free ones at least) comes either zipped (or rar packed) package of files (.DLL file(s)) which you have to unzip or unrar to your VSTplugins folder. You need a ZIP / RAR extractor such as 7-Zip or IZArc for this.
Unpack the whole content of that .zip or .rar file straight to your VSTplugins folder (or to your desktop and move/copy it to there).
If the plugin has its own installer (.exe file), follow the instructions given during the installation. Usually it asks the location of your VSTplugin folder.
Next, open the FL Studio and go to Options -> File Settings (or press F10) and under the ‘VST plugins extra search folder’, define your default VSTplugin folder (if you haven’t done so already). You only need to do this once and not everytime you install a new plugin.
After that, go to the Channels -> Add one -> More… and a box with a list of plugins will appear. At the Bottom of the box you’ll see a’Refresh’ button: click on it and choose ‘Fast scan (recommended)’ from the menu:
After scanning you should see your newly installed plugin in the plugin list (in red color):

Now you can double click it to open it and if you want, tick the little box (Favourite Switch) that is in front of the plugin to make it appear in your favourites list.

NOTE that if you installed an EFFECT plugin (not a synth which is a ‘generator’, but an effect – these are two different types of plugins), you can only open it to a Mixer tracks effect slot.
