I'm running Finale 2008 with the latest updates and I do NOT have GPO installed. As far as I am aware, the only AUi's I can run are those that are compatible with the Kontakt Player that comes with Finale, though I may be wrong. If I am correct, then why would Finale care where my Ivory Items folder is?!

Many thanks in advance.

It looks like when you are loading your file, Kontakt Player is trying to load that sound set but the Kontakt Player you are using for the file does not find the files where they last were. Have you recently moved any files on your computer to an external drive or another location? If you browse to the files and tell Kontakt Player where they are does this message still pop up?

Hi Eric,

Have you uninstalled or moved anything related to your Ivory plug-in? Finale 2008 is capable of hosting some non Kontakt based libraries.

Hey guys, sorry for taking so long to respond...

Actually, I chose NOT to install the Kontakt player and the GPO because I only use Finale for notation. This is, however, interesting that it may be possible to use Ivory with Finale!

This message comes up as the program itself (Finale 2008) is loading, not when I open any particular file. It's as if upon initialization, it searches and detects Ivory's presence and goes through the motions of starting it up as if it were going to use it by searching for the folder where Ivory's sounds are located. Scott, you are correct in assuming that I keep my library located on an external HD which is usually offline when I use Finale. The change of locations to my Ivory Items folder would be the only 'tampering' I have done with the Ivory plug-in. I just don't really understand why Finale insists on locating this folder because I never tried to load Ivory in Finale. Additionally, I have purchased new AUi's since then (Superior Drummer 2.0) who have libraries located on my external HD and Finale hasn't kicked up a fuss about those programs whatsoever.

The only problem this is causing is an annoyance when I start up the program with my external HD offline. Maybe if I reinstalled the program with the Kontakt option enabled, I could figure out a way to get Finale to stop looking for Ivory.

???

Either way, I really appreciate the feedback you have provided thus far.


P.S. - Justin, if you know offhand of a thread of chapter in the Finale manual where I could learn more about using non-Kontact based libraries with Finale, that would be a big bonus, too!! ;-)

Well, I tried installing the Kontakt player and nothing has changed. If a lightbulb should happen to light up for anyone who reads this thread and can help out, I'd appreciate any ideas and suggestions.

Thanks all.

Eric
