my (updated) kontakt player 223 carries GPO, Garritan Jazz and Bigband and GPO set for FInale.
Has anyone the textfile to be put in the FinaleVST folder in order to have the finale score setup wizard giving access to all sounds of the 3 libraries in one instance of the Kontakt player.

Hello Serge,

I am using Finale 2008 with GPO and JaBB.

The Garritan Instruments for Finale set should have been installed when you installed Finale, assuming you opted for this.

Carla has provided the gpofull2instrument.txt and the GarritanJazzinstrument-k2.txt files. You can find these in the following post (4th and 5th post down):

You should also have the KP2 dll file in the same folder. To summarise, the four files you should have in your Finale 2008 folder to use with Kontakt Player 2.2.3 are:

(1) KontaktPlayer2.dll
(2) GIFinstrument.txt
(3) gpofull2instrument.txt
(4) GarritanJazzinstrument-K2.txt

Hope this helps.

my install is fine...
what I'm looking for is a (new) textflie that would go something like :
GIF+GPO+Gjbb-K2instrument.txt in such a way that when you open the setup wizard you could access the three libraries in as few as one instance of the Kontakt player... maybe I try to make one myself using the other textfiles... but it might have happened that somebody created this already.

If you put the files that Michael told you about, all instrument libraries will be accessible from the setup wizard and you can mix them in one instance of the Kontakt 2 Player. In fact, the setup Wizard will do that for you.

this made my day. thanks for leading me there.
so as a consequence, I kicked out the old garritanjazzvst.dll and the personnalorchestravst.dll as well as the garritanjazz.txt and the gpofullinstrument.txt... just leaving the Kontakt player and the smartsynthvst with their respective txt files.
finale boots up way faster now, and all sounds are there.
Great !
