This is probably (I hope) an easy fix...

I own the woodwinds I collection and have bought the french oboe (oboe 2) full version download. I have installed it but none of the extended articulations are showing in VI player or VI PRO.

The L2 licence for the French Oboe is present in the eLicenser and the directory manager points to my Oboe-2 directory....

By collection, do you mean the special edition? The full oboe 2 patch files will appear in a different folder tree in the patch browser (right hand side of player), in a folder called something like "B - WOODWINDS".

Another thing: where did you install the library files? Perhaps you could boot up Vienna directory manager and make sure the program is looking on the right place for the sample content?

EDIT: I misread part of your post. The FULL part of the French Oboe library will install into the same folder te your normal files are. Browse the patch content in VI and you should see additional articulations available in the same folders: the full library articulations have a small "(ext)" next to the patch name that you should be able to see if you squint hard enough :)

Hey Sam yeah it's a bit confusing... I have the VI woodwinds I standard library but bought the full French oboe download edition. Normally my download instruments are in the... Err.... Download instrument folder (trumpet in Bb etc) but the French oboe doesn't appear there. The only French oboe visible is in the woodwinds I collection and the ext instruments aren't appearing. Have checked directory manager and it points to the download version of the full French oboe, and the elicenser shows both l1 and l2 french oboe licences. Think I'll reinstall and see if it helps.

Should've just bit the bullet and got the full woodwinds I licence really but I was feeling cheap and really only need the extra articulations in the oboe 😁

Hi Derek, 

Did you download the Full Library content for the French Oboe FULL Library?

You need more than the license for those single instruments (they are crypted with their own license and do not work with the sample content of the bigger collections).

So I tried reinstalling just in case...

I have the licence


And the full oboe files


But nothing showing in the player except the oboe under woodwinds one (level 1). No seperate full French oboe visible in the download instruments in the player. :(



Very weird.

I tried removing directories from directory manager, adding them back in, rescanning etc.


My solo strings disappeared as well. Removed, readded, rescanned. Solo strings back but no French oboe to be seen still :(
