deleted live pack :P

Post by RJ » Thu Jul 07, 2011 7:02 pm

deleted a live pack from the effects browser and immediately realized that was dumb. :?

looked for the rest of it in library/preferences/ableton and didn't find anything.

when I tried to reload an updated version of the live pack Live says it's already installed, but a library search came up with nothing.

anyone have any ideas? thanks

options-preferences-Library-Repair Library

Live will go to Abe HQ and get/update your library. it could take hours depending on the state of your Library and the connections.

does it contact homebase?
I thought it just looked in the app folder called 'resources', that's where the compressed packs live.
TBH I've not paid attention to that system for a long time though.
interesting

I don't know for sure. I have seen posts from the Abes about them doing things to the Library content like changing (shortening) names. AFAIK that would require the software to call home to momma.

interesting about the resources folder.
