  • VI does not detect my libraries

    Hi - my Vienna Instruments and Vienna Instruments Pro aren't detecting my sample libraries.

    Previously I've installed from the DVD's onto my desktop but this time I downloaded everything from the website onto an external harddrive to use on my laptop.  I've ran the download manager and everything is listed there but when I open the VI there are no samples. 

    Everything is up to date including the elicencer.  On my desktop when installed from the DVD's I notice the filename ends with '.dat' but these ones I've downloaded end with '.cab'. 

    Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

  • Hi, 

    Did you make sure that your sample content is actually installed (*.dat files)?
    Your downloaded installation files (*.cab files, highly compressed) have to be installed (=extracted) to become the actual sample content.

    In the installation process, the location of this sample content is added to your Directory Manager automatically. 

    Installation should start automatically if you have not turned off the "Auto-Install" Option in the Download Manager ("on" by default). 

    If the sample content is not installed yet, simply click "INSTALL" in the Download Manager!
