In order to free up space on my laptop, I have installed VDL onto my portable 500 GB USB drive. Sibelius can't seem to find the VDL sound files to allow playback and I don't know what path/folder I should include in the virtual instruments and effects folder setting on the playback devices dialoge.
I am running Sibelius 5 with VDL 2.5 on a Windows laptop.
Please help or point me to a tutorial or article/post that can help.
You have to go into the Kontakt Player and tell it where to find the samples. Check out the image below for a better idea or where to select this. You'll need to open Kontakt Player 2, upon which you should see the VDL 2.5 box on the left-hand side. The areas highlighted in red are where you'll need to draw your attention. I'm presuming that the drive is being recognized and given a letter, so this shouldn't be a problem.
Also, have you copied the Kontakt Player 2 vst file (KontaktPlayer2.dll) as instructed in the VDL set up guide?
Hope this helps.

I put my libraries in a custom location also, of which I put VDL in the following directory on my C drive (Windows XP).
