PHOTOSHOP: Confused about Third Party Plugins and new version

I installed the 2014 version in hopes that my 3rd party plugins would migrate over and as I expected, they DID NOT. This is going to be an issue with these vendors as they track installs and if there are continuous upgrades that require new installs these plugins will be useless. Please advise!

Well, Photoshop CC 2014 is a new version (15.0) - so you will need to reinstall your third party plugins (and check for updates) just like any other major version installation.

And third party plugins can't be migrated - many of them have hard coded paths and support files that we don't know about (and users trip over when trying to copy the files).
