Halion library manager problem


I’m facing some problem wit Halion Library Manager.

Actually this standalone program does not want to open anymore.
Every time I click on it, a window open and informs that Halion Library Manager left/quit unexpectedly.

This problem started after having removed the Iconica sections & players vst and installing the new Iconica Ensembles.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Halion 6.1.5 …same problem
I synchronised the elicenser…same problem.

Don’t know what to do…

Thanks for your support.


Hi DanCas,

I have the same problem exactly, and have also carried out the same procedures as you. When I try and install Iconica Ensembles the Halion Libray Manager refuses to open and quits.

I too removed the Iconica sections & players vst and this now happens when trying to install the new Iconica Ensembles.

So where do we go from here? It is an expensive and frustrating situation to be in when you have all the sound files for Iconica Ensembles downloaded on your computer and you cannot use them! My Halion Library Manager refuses to open as a stand alone application.

Continuing on from my previous post about the Halion Library Manager failing, this is the report that shows in the error message.
Does this make sense to anyone? How can I rectify this? Like it is I cannot register and install my downloaded Iconica Sound Ensembles.Thanks in advance.

Up date on my problem above.

All solved once I up-dated my computer with the recently released MacOS Mojave.

Foxtrot Delta

Hello Fox-trot,

Thanks for your inputs concerning Mojave.
On my side I’m still dealing with the Steinberg support who did not come back to me with a fixe.

Based on your feedback, I will install Mojave ASAP to see if it solve it too.

Thanks again.

Hi everyone,

Please copy the Iconica Content to:

“Name of your HD”/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/Content/HALion/VST Sound

Now the HALion Library Manager shouldn’t crash anymore.
We are aware of this Issue and I hope we will release a Fix with the next maintenance update.


Hello Jochen,

Did it but still the same problem.
Any old files to be removed ?


I’ve just tried to move all the Steinberg Content onto a separate hard drive and the Library Manager only picked up about 70% of it.

Now what?
