HALion 5 overwrite


I have just updated my HALion 5 from HALion 4 and it’s overwritten my HALion 4 app

I’m using Vienna Ensemble pro in 64 bit and now, when I load up a song it tells me it can’t create an instance of HALion 4

Disaster! I have about a thousand songs with HALion 4 in them, and I run a commercial studio so time is of the essence

Can I get HALion 4 and 5 on the same computer - if so, how do I do it

I’m panicking here!

That is strange that this happened, as the ID for the VSTi has not changed between HALion 4 and 5 and within Cubase anyways, I can load any track created with HALion 4 and HALion 5 will load in its place without ever knowing the difference. I have not heard of what you described happening from any other hosts either, so this must be unique to Vienna Ensemble.

As far as I know, there is no way to have HALion 4 and 5 on the same system, as HALion 5 is designed to replace 4 as the issue you are describing shouldn’t be happening anyways.

I can truly understand your stress however and I hope you get it sorted and soon!


Me Too!
