Greetings

Since my SSD drive failed, I have been redownloading and installing my instruments on my backup drive. When my replacement SSD drive comes, I'll want to move these instruments over to it. 

How do I do this without actually having to reinstall? 

thanks!

Just drag them to the new drive, run directory Manager, and drag the new locations into that

Hi, 

"Running the Directory Manager":  

Please open the Directory Manager (find it in "Applications" (OS X) or "All Programs" (Win) => then "Vienna Instruments").

Remove all folders - then add all sample content again by drag and drop from your Finder/Explorer. 

More information about how the Directory Manager works can be found in the video "How to use the Directory Manager".  

Best, 
Paul
