    Quick tutorial for reinstalling Stylus on Win 7(64bit)?

    I recently did a clean install of Win 7 due to imminent HDD failure. I've got all my Sage libraries on a separate(internal) hard drive. What precisely do I have to reinstall to get up and running again? Can I use the 193f installer and then install the 1.7 data file? Or do I have to start from scratch?

    Hi Anubis,

    I just did what you asked for:

    OS: Win7 64-Bit
    Installed Stylus RMX 64-Bit on new System running Cubase 5.5.0 64-Bit,
    using the existing SAGE folder...

    1. create the folder C:\ProgramData\Spectrasonics by hand
    (C:\ProgramData should already exists on Win7/Vista) / Different to XP!

    2. create a short-cut named "SAGE" from your SAGE folder
    (remove the words "shortcut to" from the short-cut file - now named SAGE)

    3. place the short-cut file inside C:\ProgramData\Spectrasonics

    4. download the latest Updates:
    a. Data-Installer
    b. Software-Installer

    5. install them in this sequence: a then b and make sure you
    point the installer to the correct SAGE- and VSTplugins-Path.

    6. launch your DAW e.g. Cubase, load the VSTi, register it - and enjoy the
    magic of 64-Bit when RMX meets Omnisphere and Trillian

    Hope that helps.... cheers Oliver.

    Thank you very, very much. Your instructions were flawless! I am now back up and running. I've even gotten arouind to installing some of the Xpanders that I never got around to.
    There's only one thing that I'm curious about. Should I have pointed the 64bit version of the VST to my (x86)plugins folder along with the 32bit version? My host is Ableton Live which is still a 32bit app but I think I heard that 64bit plugins run fine with it?

    Great - that it worked !!! Again more time making music...

    On the 32/64-Bit Plug-In topic I found out via the telephone hotline in Germany
    that it is a good way creating the following folder structure:

    Cubase 64-Bit: C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 5
    64-Bit-Plug-Ins: C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VSTPlugins
    32-Bit-Plug-Ins: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\VSTPlugins

    In Cubase 5 64-Bit pointing to these plug-in folders in the Cubase Plug-Ins Manager.
    In Ableton Live (I guess) you could also point to these folders. But I am not sure
    as I have not installed Ableton on the 64-Bit Platform yet. But it should not harm
    your Cubase installation in this way.

    As you can see above - it is recommended NOT to put/install any 3rd Party plug-ins
    directly inside the Cubase 5\VSTPlugins folder - as this COULD cause problems.
    BUT you should create your own VSTPlugins folder on the same directory-level
    as the Cubase 5 folder.

    Again it is recommended to CREATE a separate folder for every plug-in/Vendor you
    might install. Not every vendor automatically creates such a folder so you could do
    it by hand during installation of a new plug-in - or maybe .. some vendors are reading this ....

    I am currently on Cubase 5.5.0 64-Bit running also some 32-Bit (internally bridged)
    Plug-Ins besides all Spectrasonics Instruments and other 64-Bit Plug-Ins without any
    trouble. Stable and very fast.

    Hope this helps again - cheers Oliver.
