In hopes of finding the update which we all await, I happened to find this file – Garritan_Steinway_1.01.exe – under the 'support' button for the standalone Steinway v1.0. (Separate files are there for PC and Mac.) Anyway, after downloading it to my disc, I double-clicked to see if it would unzip and display some sort of 'readme' file, or information about it. Nada. It looks like a new installation (agree to terms, etc, check boxes to install VST etc) – similar, if not identical, to a first-time installation. Not wanting to waste another of the 4 installs total that we are allowed, I decided to be cautious and cancel out of it.
Two questions: First, does installing V1.01 over an existing installation count as an additional 'install' (another 1 of the 4), or is it merely an update, which would leave the install counter at 1? Seems like it should be the latter, although it would be nice to have some assurance from Gary or David to that effect. Either that, or some documentation included in the download.
Second, will installing V1.01 over V1.0 delete the various setup load files that I have already gone to the trouble to setup for myself, ie, all the variables (dials) set up the way I like them to be upon startup? Or will they still be retained as they were? That also would be nice to know before proceeding blindly with what appears to be a new installation.
Please, Gary or David, if you could let me know I sure would appreciate it.
