I would like to know exactly how far you have come:
Did you download JABB KP2?
Did you install JABB KP2?
Did you authorize JABB KP2?
Does JABB show up in KP2?
Btw, are you running the very latest version of Service Center?
OK, here's what happened.
I installed JABB and authorized it.
I got a serial number for JABB KP2 and authorized it.
Then the disk crashed on which JABB was installed. In fact, all my Garritan products were installed there. This is a different disk from my system disk. Kontakt Player 2 is installed on the system disk; the crashed disk is just the one with the samples.
So I reinstalled. When I installed GPO, I went to the service center to register it and it told me it was already registered. I asked the service center for updates, and it told me I could download the GPO KP2 update. I did so, and installed it. When I went back to the service center to register it, I was told that GPO KP2 was already registered.
When I installed Stradivari and Concert&Marching Band, they went in without difficulty -- in each case NI Service Center told me they were already registered (and of course they already use KP2).
When I installed JABB, it installed just like GPO up to a point. The initial installation went just fine, and when I went to the service center, it told me JABB was already registered.
However, when I asked the service center for updates, it did not display any updates for JABB. It did tell me that JABB KP2 was already registered. It did not make any difference whether I checked the "Don't show me updates I've already downloaded" box. No matter what I did, the update from JABB KP1 to JABB KP2 was not there.
I have been able to work around the problem by copying the library files from my other machine. After I did that, JABB showed up properly in KP2 and I can play it. So in one sense, the problem is solved.
In another sense, though, I am concerned that the service center is *still* not displaying the JABB KP2 update as available for me to download, because this suggests that when the next JABB update comes out, I won't get it, and if I ever want to move to another computer, I may have difficulty installing JABB.
