Live 8 updates reinstall previously removed packs

Post by R.A.W. » Thu May 21, 2009 2:34 pm

Hi,
as I don't own the suite or any native pay-instruments such as Analog, Electric etc., I deinstalled any library packs with content for those instruments. When I update Live, those packs get reinstalled and I have to manually remove them again.
Please consider for coming updates that the library only updates packs that are really installed.

Best regards,
R.A.W.

Yeah, same here. I mentioned it a couple of times in other threads, but it's good you posted here.

I can't remember if it was the same in L7, I don't think so... it's just a little bit annoying especially with the regular updates to 8.0.x...

Yes, this drives me nuts too. I guess it's so you can demo the built in instruments at any time - but really if we have made a conscious decision to remove the packs then it shouldn't try to update them for every bugfix update.

8.0.8 did it better, it asked for packs to be installed and i could just skip this.

8.0.9 now installs every pack again without asking... another long install with having to manually delete packs i don't need or wanted in the first place!
