I though it would be a nice idea to try out the Soft Imperial piano as a quick way of checking there would be no problem running my present eLicenser libraries together with a single new iLok one. A mistake! When I installed this library using the Vienna Assistant, it also installed a new iLok version of the Synchron player which seemingly overwrote my old one and as a result, my entire Synchron collection was no longer available. I only managed to recover after uninstalling the Synchron player and reinstalling the old one (v1.1.2063) for eLicenser.
I have no idea how it is possible to try out this piano or any other free instrument without trashing my existing installation. I have no time or desire to convert my libraries to iLok at this stage. Any suggestions? I'm also unclear whether this piano should be accessed through the iLok Synchron player or whether there is possibly an iLok Synchron piano corresponding to the eLicenser Vienna Synchron pianos, though I see no sign of such a thing
UPDATE Reading further, it seems that it is impossible to mix Synchron eLicenser and Synchron iLok libraries. If this is the case, then I clearly cannot try out or purchase any new libraries until conversion.
