Hi - with a GA sale on, I decided to buy two new add-ons. Installing these seemed to have made GA forget about my other kits and add-ons. I’ve had similar problems before, leading me to think that the software can get in a mess pretty easily.
However, I wiped my machine and reinstalled Windows 10 Home from scratch, and I’m looking for installation pitfalls, and ways to fix them without a reformat. I’ve been trying several combinations - each with a clean windows install -and so far nothing has seemed to work.
- Windows 10 Home PC
OS on M.2 Drive, apps on SSD
Make sure Windows configured and up to date, with e-licenser installed
Installed latest Cubase 9.5
Typically I install for any user to use, but I suspect this may be part of the problem, so have been experimenting with both
I only change install paths of apps (to ssd drive), I don’t touch appdata (should I?)
Reboot between installs (and click update library icon in GA and wait where appropriate)
Addons I’m trying to install - Blues Essentials, Rock and Roll Essentials (existing ones), Nashville, Simon Phillips (new ones)
Problems experienced at various times (all by right clicking on slot and selecting “load kit with patterns”…
- Only SE Kit available - all others gone
Blues and Rock and Roll not available after installing
Blues & Rock and roll available, but will not load when pattern clicked on
installing Nashville & SP makes all other kits disappear (plus missing sounds warning with metronome and another file)
Possibly others and will add
- Why does the installer for addins offer to install for any user? Surely this should adhere to the host app’s settings
I think it’s getting confused about where kits and patterns are, is there any way I can make sure all files are in correct place?
Is there any log file? When failing to load a pattern it would help if I could find what and where
Would it improve things if I manually set a location for the appdata for everything?
Like I say, there needs to be a way to fix this post install, since it doesn’t seem robust enough to work out of the box. Apologies for the long post, but I’ve been putting a bit of time in over the weekend…
