My suggestion is to update this xml adding your paths. If you are reverting back old xml just keep in mind the new engine 99999 syntax for retrieving the latest one
That's all... If you did this passage correctly next updates will be completely automatic

Thank you. Yeah, everything works smoothly. Just checked and engine version was set at 99999. Excited that I will no longer have to edit my xml files! LOL I don't mind, but it shows progress and it's great to see how far Nebula has come!

I just saw this post so I updated via Aquarius & now I get nothing! I checked & see that all my user paths were removed & missing. I redirected & saved them all over again.

I open N4 & once again nothing, plus I see all paths I just redirected & saved are completely gone.

What's up with that?

Run your host as admin and try again.

I always run as Admin & everything was working fine until Aquarius installed the update..
I then rolled back a version & that didn't do a thing either.

I just re-installed EVERYTHING from scratch same thing.. What else else could be the problem?(Acquas are running fine)

Thanks

Engine settings + alternative data paths are stored in N4.XML. I suspect settings can't be saved because of access rights.

Thanks, I'll remember for future ref..

I ended removing all Acustica / Nebula files from my system including Aquarius / Stage then re-installed & finally the paths remained changed as normal. Past N4 updates have worked well but this one did something whacky.
Thanks for helping, appreciate it..

Has the GUI changed? no more VU meters? nothing happens when I click on Simple and Edit buttons...

edit: updating, simple and edit button work only when there are skins, is that right?

Thanks for the new update, just a couple of things..

ROSE,
you mentioned this has been updated? But for me Rose isn't showing up in Aquarius, so how do I update this? Is there a manual installer for this update?

no Backwards compatibility,
Even tho I created a N4ZL setup version, I still found it was not compatible with previous projects / instrument racks, as they no longer loaded any plugin.

Thanks again

Just a note here. And I have not experienced this trouble. Just an observation on file structure I have noticed.

Legacy Aquas from Box were always installed with an appended default folder acoustica64

Since Aquarius, the default directory has been dropped. So if you were once legacy installing to P:\\VSTPLUGINS which became P:\\VSTPLUGINS\acoustica64 (path is just an example)

You are now installing to the root of P:\\VSTPLUGINS

So if you need to be updating an existing install to a location like P:\\VSTPLUGINS\acoustica64 Make sure to stipulate this destination in your Aquarius install path options and setup.

This may seem painfully obvious for many, but I thought it was worth a mention , since the new aquarius default install procedure differs from the old legacy installs and could potentially cause problems during an install.

check carefully the magic number. Raise a ticket, if the magic is the same you have exactly the same plugin
