|Ok this has gotten way out of hand...the original post was just a request that 3rd party VSTs not be removed when changing instruments. It has nothing to do with supporting various software and libraries...the user can add them if they want, but Finale shouldn't remove them arbitrarily when changing instruments.|

|You seem to have missed the point. Finale depends on a number of supporting files so that it can identify and access the sound libraries it uses. If those files are missing, then Finale cannot handle the third party sound libraries in the same way that it handles the Garritan libraries. Even at that, in order to get the Garritan libraries to work you have to go to MM's website and download the .xml and .txt files needed. So, who is going to supply the .xml and .txt files to support the several dozen different libraries out there? I suggest you go to the people who supplied your sample library and ask them to supply the necessary support files, as it is completely unreasonable to expect MakeMusic to supply them.|
It is apparent you don't like this answer, so I'll drop the subject.
GPO4, JaBB3, GIO, COMB2, GWI, GIFF, Steinway Basic.

See the other thread for my comments. I did not find the Kontakt 5 VST player to be removed when I switched back and forth between a Kontakt 5 sound and a GPO4 sound using the Change Instrument utility. It worked as you would expect it to. Perhaps you can give more detailed information about the issue and how it manifests itself, other than just making a blanket statement that the Change Instrument Utility removed my VSTs. What is your version of Windows? What is your version of Finale? What is your version of the Kontakt product? Is it up to date? Is it a left over from earlier versions of Finale/Garritan? What sound were you using? Any additional information would be helpful. Post the offending file. I have tried it with two VST players with no issue, ARIA and Kontakt 5. Perhaps I misunderstand your issue. Perhaps it is user error, dare I mention it. We just cannot tell.
All we need is for Finale to stop removing VSTs...that's it. ... ... I simply don't want Finale to remove them.
