Bulk Install

For those of you who need the quickest way to download and install all their registered products, our bulk-install option is the way to go.

Choose from the available categories to select all your registered products and customize your selection as you prefer. All available components for these selections will then be downloaded and installed in one go.

Main

Click Install to start the download & installation process. All selected products will be added to the selected download & installation locations on top of the window.

Tip

When downloading/installing on separate drives it makes sense to initiate multiple bulk-installation processes!

The Main Menu offers convenient options and the Preferences of your Vienna Assistant:

  1. Install from drive offers the possibility to install our sample library products and MIR RoomPacks directly from a local drive like the Vienna Hard Drive. You can start this „local installation process“ by dragging a downloaded installation folder on top of the Vienna Assistant.
Tip

This also works with multiple files contained in a folder.

  1. Start tour again launches the tour guide you have seen at first log-in once again.

  2. Add existing libraries lets you add any previously installed libraries (e.g., from another drive).

  3. Delete eLicencer Libraries to free up space! This option searches for all paths to eLicenser-protected samples content assigned in the Synchron Player Database and the Vienna Instruments Directory Manager and permanently deletes these files (no instant recovery possible)!

  4. Preferences shows all options of your Vienna Assistant, from default locations to database management.

  5. Create Support File extracts a zip file with helpful information for our support team, which will be placed on your desktop.
