I have searched extensively for answers to the questions below in both Dorico’s documentation and the forum, but am striking out on finding the information I need. I hope that you can help.
My machine is a 2019 iMac, and I’m running macOS Catalina - 10.15.7.
1 - I am trying to move my sound libraries to a dedicated SSD external drive, both the sound libraries that come with Dorico (Halion, etc.) and Kontakt VSTs. I’ve tried using the Steinberg Library Manager, but each time I try to move a library, it fails (all external drives are actually “greyed out” in the window, highlighting the fact that they seem unavailable for this action). I’ve tried deleting all the sound libraries (again, via the Steinberg Library) and reinstalling the sounds to the SSD via the Steinberg Download Assistant. When I did this, it downloaded the “HALion_Sonic_SE_and_Content_for_Dorico_Pro_3.4_Installer_mac” file downloaded fine, but when I began the installation process, it said “Sounds for Dorico Pro 3 can’t be installed on this disk. You can only install this software on the disk that is running macOS”.
This message runs counter to what I’m understanding Dorico’s documentation about what the Steinberg Library Manager makes possible - namely that you can move libraries to a separate drive to free up space on the main drive and facilitate smoother operation.
Is there a step I’m missing? Does the external drive need to be formatted in some special way? I’ve been using it for storing other projects without a problem, and there is plenty of space on it.
2 - In order to free up USB ports on my machine, I’d like to transfer my Dorco Pro 3.5 license from my USB dongle to the soft-eLicenser. Is this possible?
Thank you in advance for your help.
