I guess they have not fix the Au wrapper yet. I got it to work with this @ https://www.acustica-audio.com/phpBB3/v ... 11&t=30266

I have had not much luck with Aquarius I'm afraid:
I've got the 'bought the trials ' of Purple and downloaded them on my internet pc. I took these files over to my daw and installed them there... ran my daw as administrator and got that 'authorize' message.
Then I opened Aquarius and pointed it to my location and then it got authorized (green sign)
But when I start the daw and load the purple plugins I get this 'authorize' message again.

btw: I also tried putting in the Black Friday code to reset my trials two days ago ... and it was not accepted: was the code not to stay valid for a couple more days?

So, at the moment I can say that 'manual authorization' - which I seemingly can't do with purple anymore (due to Aquarius) was more straight forward and I didn't depend on many other parameters.

thanks for your help and regards

There is a topic here about expired trials
You could not make them work at all

It is not clear, are you using Aquarius?

Wrong topic, trial expired, is not an Aquarius issue, read, Expired trials (Aquarius and legacy installers), here: http://www.acustica-audio.com/phpBB3/vi ... 56&t=30296

Black Friday 2017 campaign end, and Black Friday Aquarius coupon is offline.

It could not find itself (aquarius_old.exe).
Now Aquarius allways crashes during start.

Yes, I did if I remember correctly...but not 100% sure

ok, i understand
btw: I also tried putting in the Black Friday code to reset my trials two days ago ... and it was not accepted: was the code not to stay valid for a couple more days?
Black Friday 2017 campaign end, and Black Friday Aquarius coupon is offline.offline meaning not available anymore? If yes, ok!
Thanks I will try Purple again with the new Demo and Aquarius... thanks to the support team!

only download files with Aquarius possible?

Post by Acusticaaudiouser33 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 11:21 pm

As I want to use my internet connection at home:

Is there no 'only download' function of updates of purchased Acquas or trials in Aquarius?

The download of plugins with Aquarius seems to mean a full install with one authorisation used on the internet laptop, right?
This is not wanted ... I just need the files for my non-internet connection studio!

How do I do this?
thanks and regards

I think there is an user manual explaining the datastage area. If the explanation is not good they will fix it
Datastage files are the real installer

This is the way Windows updates and app store installers are working
Normally you cannot delete files
Zab was speaking about an extra temporary folder used for extracting data from compressed files. It's already doing it now

Just to be clear, you can decide to purge datastaging area, but manually
I think we'll never change this behaviour, at least not now. There are many things planned, but not this one

Can u explain how to manually delete that folder. Where to look. If I update all my plugins that would be a lot of gigs I would be putting on my hard drive. Should I just uninstall everything then start over ? If I keep the folder does that mean future updates will not take up more hard drive space?
