Still in a Mess! (Help please)
After installing Win7 64 bit and Cubase 64 bit (after using Win 7 RC 64 bit successfully),
I have begun the process of installing all Spectrasonics applications again. I have Trilogy RMX and Omni.
After some hours and after following advice given on this forum and in the Knowledge Base, I find myself still stuck. Its a looooong time until Monday and I would love to be able to get on with this.
When I open Omni in Cubase, I find that it can't find the default file, or the libraries.
I think I understand the correct process but need to ask some clarifying questions.
Before I do I should like to mention that I have a folder for installed plugin dlls called 'myplugins' on my C drive, which is also my system drive, and I have a hard drive (E) devoted to samples.
This E drive has a Spectrasonics folder and in this folder there seems to be 2 STEAM folders.
The first is directly in the E: Allsamples/spectrasonics folder, along with a file called DS_Store and an 'omnisphere' folder.
The second in E: Allsamples/spectrasonics/STEAM/omnisphere along with the following folders defaults, documentation. settings library and SoundSources.
As you can see, one folder is nested in the other. This 'nesting' may have been caused by having Trilogy, RMX and Omnisphere on the same system, or it may have been caused by an incorrect installation in the remote past - I dont really know. It seems wrong to have tow folders with the same name.
Now I think I understand that the VST DLL for omni needs either the STEAM folder or a shortcut to that folder in the directory that the VST resides.
I noticed that I had four DLLs at one time so I discarded them all and reinstalled, using only the 64 bit option. After what I thought was a clean 'manual fresh install' I seem to have three dlls
I have tried creating fresh short cuts to the steam folders (in each of these directories), but nothing has worked. I still get :
"Cannot open Multi
and the libraries are also not found.
This directory mentioned in the error message does not seem to exist even after reinstall.
The VST's info panel states that Cubase is running the correct 64 bit GUI.
These are the questions I need clarifying:
1. If you want to run only the 64 bit plugin, in Cubase only, how many dlls do you need and where should they be?
2. Out of the two STEAM Folders listed above, which one should I be creating a shortcut to?
3. If I have to do a clean reinstall. How is this accomplished?
4. If I go back to the original discs it seems that I will HAVE to install the 32 bit app again and this may cause further confusion of pointers
5. Is my current STEAM file setup right or wrong? Is it going to cause problems further along the line
6. What the &&& is going on?
Sorry for the long post, detail was required.
Wonderful synth - I know because it was all working before in Windows RC 64 bit (using Jbridge)
