Cannot launch Superior Drummer 2.2 Help Please

Post by wolverball » Wed Sep 04, 2013 7:20 am

Hi Folks, I hope someone can give me a hand here as I'm at my wits end trying to sort this out. I installed superior drummer 2.2 on my original computer about three months which operated on windows xp. Last week I purchased a new computer with windows 8 as the OS and have installed both SD 2.2 plus Metal foundry. The thing is it won't work. I keep getting a message that "you need to set the path where you installed the sounds before you use them". Can anyone give me some help here, I've not encountered this before :(

Try updating to the latest version of Superior Drummer and see if that helps.

And if that doesn't help, what happens if you click OK? There are some path names below that popup with red crosses in front, and buttons at the end, one of which says "set".
It probably isn't that easy, but still i'd better ask.

Doesn't that sound simply super

Of course we all know very well it wouldn't work but what the hell

also check it's installed in a location that Mixcraft can see: Preferences>MIDI>edit vst/vsti folders.
Keep on trackin'
