    HELP!! Kontakt 2 + GPO + JABB + new intel Mac = NOTHING!!

    (I realized I had this in the wrong forum)

    I get this spiffy new MacPro, and hey look, GPO and JABB no longer appear as AU anymore in Finale 2007 and Logic Express 8. So, I'm recommended to use Kontakt Player 2 (since it DOES show up).

    I reinstall Finale, LE, GPO, and JABB.

    Then, as per recommended I installed:
    GPO Kontakt 2.3.3 Update
    JABB Kontakt 2.3.3 Update

    Everything is registered and activated.

    This allows the two libraries to show up on KP2. I get Kontakt Player 2 up and working fine within Finale and LE.

    BUT!!!

    Any time I want to use a patch in an application, I get the dreaded: "THE PATCH YOU'RE TRYING TO LOAD CANNOT BE USED WITH THIS APPLICATION." Which, according to other threads means I have patches from previous versions trying to load into KP2. Great, so I have $400 of useless junk now?

    SO I cleaned it all out and did it again, following closely

    http://www.garritan.com/K2MacUpdate.html

    step by step perfectly. What did I get? The GPO now has a skin in Kontakt Player. But, I still get the dreaded: "THE PATCH YOU'RE TRYING TO LOAD CANNOT BE USED WITH THIS APPLICATION."

    ARRRGH 4 hours of troubleshooting for naught. I liked it better when I could install the applications and they just worked.

    WHAT AM I MISSING?! Any help would save my life!!!!!

    Ok, give us details. Firstly, Which OS version are you running? There are issues with the installers and Leopard.

    What is the exact folder you installed the KP2 update in?
    Click the “info” button on the GPO panel. Select the “About” tab. Does the Library Path at the bottom match where you installed?
    If not change it there.

    Verify the large sample files (.nks) are in the KP2 install folder. If you selected a different folder then where KP1 was, then they need to be copied manually.

    Sorry, I AM using Leopard. I could have been Leopard (and not the new computer) that suddenly made GPO and JABB disappear as AUs causing all this trouble

    Here's the problem in Logic Express 8:

    It doesn't say "Kontakt Player 2" in the widnow but the plug-in is listed as "KontaktPlayer2" - is that significant?

    All are installed onto my Applications folder. I have included links as to what my applications folder looks like.

    Here is the Library/Audio/Plug-ins folder

    I'm sure I didn't do something right.

    Thanks for the help so far!

    The problem with Leoprad is only the installer. If it was installed in Tiger, then upgraded, then you're fine.

    I can't help you with Logic, but I seem to recall the latest version of Logic didn't work with Kontakt. Do some searches, you should find some threads.

    So, because I have LEOPARD, it's just tough luck? I have looked up virtually every forum on this subject. This is insane. I've now spent a good 10 hours on just trying to get a peep out of Kontakt. Nothing. Logic forums send me here, Finale forums send me here, and forums here send me to Garritan, and some very vague instructions lead nowhere.

    ROAR!!!!!

    Moogie,

    Not sure if you're still having problems or not but I was able to get up and running on Leopard. Take a look at my post over here: http://northernsounds.com/forum/show...464#post534464
    Native Instruments has a Installer Patch utility available online that has solved a few problems for me.

    Good luck.

    Sure, you'll be fine. You will be able to SEE the KP2 in the AU BUT then comes the next problem, you wo'nt be able to hear any sound, as in my case. I REALLY hope you wont have that problem. Usually you get responses about turning up the mod wheel but, that's not the problem. Again, I hope you will hear sounds. otherwise, good Luck to you.
