1 - VDL Version: 2.5 2 - Kontakt Player: Version 2.2.4 3 - Sibelius or Finale: Sibelius 6 4 - Computer specs - Windows Vista 5 - Using VDL as a plug in for Sibelius 6
I've been through the forum, faq's, Google searches, your delightful manual, NI forums....
I cannot get Sibelius to stop giving me the ";newer version of Kontact..."; error message. Also, the choice of ";Virtual Drumline"; is not given to me in the template portion of Sibelius. (the part in the top right hand corner where you choose what kind of ensemble you want) So, essentially. I can't get your [b]wonderful[/b] product to work. (I'm not being sarcastic, I'm really am excited to use it)
Yes, I bought the template from the Write Stuff folks. I followed their directions SEVERAL times to the letter.
I've done the ";copy and paste fiesta"; with the ";Kontactplayer2.dll";. Now, I haven't been able to find the ";Kontact2.dll"; anywhere. Trust me, I've looked..just like the FAQ and he manual told me to. Watched the videos and read just about everything on the subject I could.
I have reinstalled both Sibelius, and virtual drumline and Kontact more times today than I'd care to remember.
I would really like some assistance here...please?
Don't flame me. I read all of your stuff. Paid my money for the ride....
3) In the Sibelius program folder, locate the spot where Sibelius scans for VST plugins. Within this folder, it's critical to have the current KontaktPlayer2.dll file. If it's not at least version 2.2.4, you'll need to copy it to this location for the library to work properly. You can check this by selecting ";view properties"; on this file.
Please note: Kontakt 2 and Kontakt Player 2 are actually two different products. If you haven't purchased the full version of Kontakt 2, don't worry about it. Just stick to working with Kontakt Player 2.
Be sure to reboot after doing these various steps before checking if your results have changed. If you're still experiencing problems, please let us know what your seeing and include the specific results. Most likely, it's just a couple little odd files that aren't quite located in the correct spots.
