Hi Vienna 

I successfully converted my VI orchestra to iLok.  However, as warned in the conversion information, the Bosendorfer Imperial does not work with iLok.  I did get it working with Vienna Imperial Player, but if possible, I would like to get it working within Vienna Instruments Pro so I can use the piano presets.  Is this possible?  Thanks.

I am not sure if this post is about the discontinued old Bösendorfer or the Vienna Imperial, but I would suggest exactly the same for the latter. Instead of porting the ancient dedicated piano player (which aside from a simpler UI does not have any advantage), now that VI pro is free anyway, it would be so much better if the VSL team would simply release VI pro presets for the Vienna Imperial. The Imperial is in principle a great sample set, but since the ancient piano player (which as far as I understand was released before MIR was even fully available) does not support MIRx (but only cut-down versions of selected venues), it never sounds right in a mix with other VI/Synchron instruments and therefore I hardly use it (and getting MIR pro merely to add an old piano does no make much sense). It should be so much easier to include it in the new VST3 VI pro, than to port this dated piece of software for a piano that in its current form probably not many people use anyway.

+1 I think it is a bad thing that there will be no way of further using the Vienna Imperial as soon as licenser software won't be working any longer. Discontinued or not: that is not fair to the people who bought it once.
