  • Vienna Special edition re-Installation , please Help !!

    Hello , My name is Oscar , and I bought my 1st Vienna sounds Library Special edition a few weeks ago. I followed all the video tutorial and did all the installation process. Everything worked well during a days but I had a problem a few days ago with my computer and I had to restore OS software . Now I am trying to Install again Vienna special edition in my computer. I had all the sounds in an external hard drive ( I put them there the 1st time I installed Vienna in my computer ), Now I am trying to play with the engine but everything is empty ...Empty Matrix , No patch , ,,,etc.. I am trying to install again the sounds library but when I click in the Vienna Instruments Library Installer it says to me " Administrator Account is required to run this application " What Should I do ? And the other problem is that my Logic 7 academic doesn't recognize the Vienna engine ....Do I have to do something special with any vienna folder or something ? Thank you very much Oscar

    your user account needs to be an administrator´s account:  Go to  .../System Preferences/Accounts and make sure that "Allow user to administer this computer" is checked.

Select your Mac OS X startup volume in the column on the left of the Disk Utility window, then click the <Repair Disk Permissions> button. 

    Unfortunately I don´t  know what Logic 7 "academic" is? Do you have any information about this Logic version and its possible restrictions?  You can also send this information to:

    Kind regards,


  • Thank you very Much !! I am going to try it . Thak you again.
