Steinberg is aggressively sunsetting the VST2 API. Part of this involves licensing and if you intend on releasing a VST2 plugin after October 2018 you need to contact them about proper licensing, etc...
The original RackAFX API (now called RAFX1 and currently released) links your RAFX DLL to a library called Sock2VST3 to allow you to use it as a VST2 or VST3 plugin directly. After October 2018, that library will remove the VST2 plugin wrapper, which Steinberg have removed from the VST3 SDK 3.6.10, and will not generate VST2 compatible plugins as a result.
In the meantime, check your licensing status with Steinberg if you intend on releasing VST2 plugins in the future.
