I purchased Scarbee VKC a few months back and have been using it succesfully since then. Just today, for no reason I can think of, Halion 3.1 will no longer pass AU validation. (I'm on Mac 10.4.4 and Logic 7.1.1.) Logic's AU manager tells me that "Halion's 3.x protection device contains no valid license for this application."
When I open the license control center, which i just updated to 22.214.171.124, it clearly shows Scarbee VKC and Halion Player OEM 3.x. under my USB key.
Not only am I unable to use the Scarbee products but none of the songs in which I had previously used these products will open.
Anybody else have this experience? Any ideas to help me get back on track?
Thanks Thomas for your quick response. Are you referring to the Logic pref file? I already tried that. I will try the Halion reinstall. I've been avoiding that because it was a bit of a bugger the first time.
Well this is going from bad to worse. After deleting the Scarbee pref files to no avail, I deinstalled Halion and tried to reinstall it. It takes about a minute for OSX installer and then it says "software was successfully installed" but there is no Halion app to be found anywhere. I tried it several times with the same result. I tried the 3.2 update and that confirmed to me that there is no Halion player on my system to update.
Thomas, are there any other reports about installation issues on 10.4.4?
Any other suggestions? I'm desparate.
go to www.scarbee.com and check out the VKG forum. A couple of us have had problems when we went to 10.4.4. I trashed all the hallion player prefs and reinstalled the player from the disc and then did the update and everything is back to normal.
Linwood et al: Thanks for your help. I seem to be back in biz. (But got my fingers crossed.) Thanks for the tip about the Scarbee forum. I'll be sure to check there before I attempt anything as foolish as an OS upgrade.
