Sibelius 6 Failed to Recognize GPO4 library and Aria Player
i have the Garritan Personal Orchestra 4 library (GPO4) and Sibelius 6 installed (in that order) on Windows XP.
Sibelius failed to recognize the Aria player, and only did so when the appropriate Aria dll file (e.g. ARIA Player VST_x86.dll located in C:\Program Files\Garritan\ARIA Player\VST) was placed in the VSTPlugins folder of Sibelius (C:\Program Files\Sibelius Software\VSTPlugins).
furthermore, i cannot get Sibelius to recognize the GPO4 sound set, even when a GPO4 sound set file (in xml format and obtained from a Sibelius 6 update installation) is added to the Sibelius 'Sounds' folder (C:\Program Files\Sibelius Software\Sibelius 6\Sounds).
even when the Aria player shows up in the list of available sound devices (Play > Playback Devices > Active Devices Tabsheet) after having added the aforementioned Aria dll file, the GPO4 sound set is not present in the sound set drop-down list.
it seems that Sibelius 6 has failed to recognize both the Aria player and GPO4 library following installation of the Sibelius program.
any useful advice would be appreciated. thank you.

I can't give specific advice - I'm on a Mac. The best thing to do - if you haven't already - is to post this on the Sib forum. I know it does work, and integrates very smoothly; something is not in the right place, and Sibelius is not seeing it...
Post over there, and you'll have an answer shortly.
