Wow, only reading through pages 10-22 and the questions raised there - back and forth -gave me most answers.... i hope and think !!! Not reading the manual did it. Sorry, those posts and questions and constructive criticisms are imho spot on.Acusticaaudiouser33 wrote: ↑Mon Jan 22, 2018 10:04 amHi,
please let me ask this before I start reinstalling everything with Aquarius again:
I notice that latest Aquarius lists most of my already installed plugins as 'manual updates only ( please re-install)' or 'manual updates only'.
But most of those listed plugins are already up to date as they were updated by me the old, manual way 1-2 months ago.
Just to be sure: Aquarius can't see if my plugins are already updated/ latest build (as I said all had been updated manually the old way) by looking at my personal, added installation path? Can Aquarius only check the up to date status of Aquas hat were updated or reinstalled through Aquarius itself? And then: I will have to keep those files in the stagearea as to have Aquarius keep track of what was updated when?
I fear you will confirm this and I will ask: Can we have a more comfortable solution where Aquarius can read what needs to be updated by looking at my vst plugin folder and at what version is already installed on the computer?
2) Is there a way for me to see what build I have installed by looking at the installed files in my vst/Aucsticax64 folder? (I can't seem to find a way what it is but keeping the installation zip files in a seperate folder on an external hd to keep track)
3) As storage space is tight on my OS ssd : can I move the stagearea folder on an external (usb connection) drive such a western digital passport without any problems?
Many thanks for a quick reply!!!
I think it is only now going through those 12 pages that I start to understand how to interpret things in Aquarius.
I'm giving you this feedback to tell you that those 'question' are valid when working with Aquarius for the first time. Maybe you should 'include those conversations' in the manual as to help the user understand to work.
