Kontaktplayer 2.2.3.003 installed and authorized via NI's Service center tool
path to GPO/JABB libraries adjusted to where they were from the first
installation a year or two ago
Instruments and Multis are available in the (standalone) Kontakplayer, but
whenever I try to load an instrument I get the message:
"The patch you're trying to load cannot be used with this application"
(same message for both GPO and JABB).
Which step did I miss? The old installation (started with the original ancient
1.5 player and upgraded to the 2.2.1 player) worked without problems.
Thanks a lot for your time and help.
Edit: I found a thread (which BTW wasn't found by the forums search
function EVEN it contains the words I searched for!) where someone
mentioned that I first have to install the 2.2.2 version of Kontakt.
Actually, I have installed 2.2.3 with the GPO update and 2.2.2 with the
JABB update. Both show the same error message.
The GPO KP2.2.2 and JABB KP2.2.2 updates contain the necessary library files for Kontakt Player 2, whereas the KP2.2.3 update, whether the GPO or JABB version (they are one and the same), only updates the Player software.
When all updates are done, don't forget to copy the new (v2.2.3) KontaktPlayer2.dll to your VST folder and the KontaktPlayer2DXi.dll to your DXi folder.
Un-installed 2.2.3, re-installed 2.2.2 and upgraded to 2.2.3 again fixed
most instruments (GPO works fine, some instruments from JABB still won't
load. But I can live with that for now).
I probably shouldn't have started with 2.2.3.
