    Unhappy I Quit full GPO Not Working

    For the past year I have tried everything I know and some of the suggestions of other to get the full GPO to work in Finale 2009. No problems before 2009. Finale 2008 was working just fine. I have updated the Kontakt2 player and copied and pasted the require files into the Finale VST folder and still no full GPO. All I can get is the origional GPO/NI UI. I would greately appreciate it if some one can help me resolve this issue. I am at the point of giving up on Finale and GPO and just buy Notions. I want to use my time composing and not be bogged down with playing with program files.

    As a result of all this I have stayed from composing, Finale and GPO due to the frustration of it all. Also this issue is the reason I put off buying the Steinway software. Why buy another product if I can not get the first one to work.

    Hi Samantha,

    Let me see if I can help as I have Finale '09 and Kontakt 2 player as well. One thing to check is to go under MIDI/Audio at the top of the Finale screen and click on Device Setup, which opens a window to the right and gives you 7 options. Click on Manage VST Plug-ins. This will bring up another window with 3 smaller windows named Active Plug-ins, Inactive Plug-ins and Plug-in Directories. See if Kontakt2.dll is in the top window. If it isn't you may have to copy the Kontakt2.dll file from your older Finale '08 VST folder into the newer Finale '09 VST folder. Seems I had the same problem, but it's been quite a while ago. I know, it shouldn't be this complicated, especially when all you want to do is compose music. Let me know what you've found and we'll go from there.

    I printed your suggestions so that I could verify the location of the Kontackt2.dill and it was in the top box, yet none of the insturments will load at all.

    I wanted to thank you for taking the time to offer your help in resolving this issue. I called Finale and spoke to a tech-rep. We tried a few things, but he finally concluded the best solution was to uninstall Finale 09 and start over. This fix the problem. Again thank you for you kindness in show interest in my problem.

    But of course now there's GPO4 and its Aria engine - far out-classing the previous KP2. David "Et Lux" and others are reporting it works seamlessly, astoundingly well with the new Finale 2010.
