    Trilian: confusing installation instruction

    I´m installing the Trilian.
    No STEAM engine installations in my computer before this one.

    When beginning with the DISK 2 the instruction says:
    "Browse and find the \STEAM folder you created when installing
    Trilian disk 1, then click next."

    What does that mean exately?
    The facts are:

    1. There are TWO
    STEAM folders after the Disk 1 installation, BOTH are made by the
    installation program, not by me
    2. The two \STEAM folders are
    - in the C:\Documents and Settings\...\Spectrasonics\STEAM
    - in the location which I choose for the Trilian large sound library during the
    Disk 1 installation: J:\STEAM (I choose the location, not created the folder)

    Which one does the Disk 2 installer refer? Where to locate the Disk 2?
    The Disk 2 suggests the first option I mention above.

    I´ve sent this question to the techsupport but because I´m in the
    middle of the installation process and liked to continue, I put this
    query this forum, too. Many of the forum users have passed the Trilian
    installation process.

    Each disc will have to be pointed at J:\STEAM as they have an individual installer for each disc.

    Re: Trilian: confusing installation instruction

    I do not wish to seem argumentative. It's just that I thought the 'getting started' booklet that came with Trilian was excellent, and extremely detailed and clear on how to perform all kinds of different installations...step by step, for both types of computers and installations of the library on a main drive or on a separate drive. They seemed to cover every scenario. Heck they even take you through the install of the second library disk...and there's also the installation video they supply. So the subject of this thread puzzles me. Anyway, sorry you found things confusing; just not sure why.................playz

    playz123 had to say his words, too. Not much added value in this comment.
    I´m not sure if he really "was sorry"...
    My question was clearly motivated and very logical.
    Anyway, no big deal, I got the confirmation I needed, better safe that sorry
    and these forums are ofter quicker than the official tech support.
    Thanks to the Hippo.
    I hope playz123 was the only one who a) was irritated of this, b) feels he needs to make profile as a wise guy with my humble little question. H.

    Glad it worked out. Tech support would have been happy to assist you in this if you needed help. But, just a friendly reminder for everyone: Trilian comes with an instruction booklet and there is also a movie on the installation disc to guide you through the installation process.

    I know you will - but as said, if you are in the middle of the installation process, the sooner the better. Of course I first red the booklet but
    this small gap or possibility to interpret the instructions differently had
    left open. And as said, no big deal, this can happen to any manufacturer, and the main issue is that I got the answer. H.

    HarryO,
    What an unwarranted and rude response to some very simple and non threatening questions, and to an attempt to simply determine where and why you were having problems. How can someone help you if they don't know where you found the instructions difficult or confusing? I even prefaced my remarks by stating that I wasn't trying to be argumentative....and yes I was indeed sorry that you were having problems (but not so much now). You are obviously a person who prefers to think the worst of someone rather than giving them the benefit of the doubt, and that's fine, but no need to be so mean in a response here............playz

    Your comments have been just malicious, and what worst, hypocritical. "You EVEN prefaced..." Oh yeah. I can tolerate mocking but not shallowness. What did you really want to say me, in the first place with your first reply? You didn´t want to help, just said how good the manual is and how YOU (and all the other) have found the installation very easy. I made a question and got an answer, you didn´t add any value with that comment. You asked "how can someone help me", well, I got immediately help but not from you. Why do keep raising the bad blood here? If you read my first question carefully - there´s direct answer what I found confusing. And my question is still relevant, after the succesful installation, I think there´s a small inconsistency in the instructions/semantics. The difference is that I noticed it and wanted to be 100 % sure before I continued the installation, because of the large sample library which was installed. H.
