Hi haraldsson

So if I have this right, you have the original VG working in Cubase 6 on OSX but not W7

and VG EE working in Cubase 6 on W7 and not OSX.

If that's the case that's not too bad as I use Cubase 6 on both a main PC workstation and also an Intel iMac, so hopefully I can get both working between my two computers.

.... or maybe I have mis-undertood your post?

I have VG and VG EE working in Cubase 6.0.5 on W7

VG and VG EE are not working in Cubase 6.0.5 on Mac OX 10.6.8 (they both worked in Cubase 6.0.0. Mac OSX 10.6.8)

Hi haraldsson

OK thanks.

I just can't understand why I can't install VG1 on Windows 7, it's frustrating.
My install sticks at the updating the registry stage? (I haven't even tried to install VG EE on W7 yet)

Oh well, hopefully I can figure it out.

Did you install VG1 from the original install disk, or did you run the install from a hard drive, maybe I should try copying all the files to my hard drive/desktop?

Thanks anyway

Yes, I did install VG1 from the original install disk some months ago. I don't know if there have been any W7 updates since that might complicate the process...

My W7 is 64-bit installation.

Hey thanks for taking the time to reply, I do really appreciate it.

Yes I'm on W7 64 bit too - SP2 maybe that's it?

Anyway, there's the difference between W7 and OSX, with OSX it either works or doesn't. Full stop.

With Windows, maybe it does :-)

I'll keep trying.

Happy new year 2012 - hope you have a great musical year.

-------------------------------

With me it seems to be a "Full stop" Why, I can't figure out. Haraldsson says he got it ( VG EE ) to run on
Cubase 6.0.0 on Mac 10.6.8. It won't for me. ( Damn ) I get the red guitar loaded but "no content found".
Good luck to you.

Hi Jack.

Run the "VG EE Set Content Location" - a small app found here:

ftp://ftp.steinberg.net/Archives/

Go to folder "VSTi_Virtual_Guitarist_EE" > "Mac" > "VG_EE_SetContentLocation_OS_X.sit"

Hi Haraldsson--- Thanks for the information, however, I've tried but the VG_EE_ SetContentLocation OS_X.sit
is a scrambled mess of writing which is unreadable and not usuable. The only thing I can make out is
"Stuffit (c)1997-2001 Aladdin Systems, Inc., http://www.aladdinsys.com
Stuffit/
The rest of the page is totally un- readable, it's scrambled writing of some sort.
What do I do with this VG EE Set Content--- Do I put it somewhere or what? All I need is this Set Content.

You can put the VG EE content anywhere on your hard disk but the only way to to make the VG EE VST-plugin "see" the content is by using this small app "VG EE Set Content Location".

The "VG_EE_ SetContentLocation OS_X.sit" is a compressed document containing the "VG EE Set Content Location" app.

I used the program "Stuffit Expander.app" to decompress it.

Now I'm learning something "haraldsson". Could you please tell me where I can find the "Stuffit Expander.app"
I just knew there was something I was not doing right. Thanks so, so much!

Yeah, XP was never an issue for me.

W7 was the show stopper for VG and VG EE.

Maybe think twice before you upgrade to W7!

YES, YES, YES !!!!!!!!!!!!! I finally got it. I tried and tried and made work. I'm so happy.
I really have to thank "haraldsson". He did help me so much. I owe him , big time. I don't forget.
What have I got ----"Virtual Guitarist Electric Edition" and "Virtual Guitarist Acoustic and Electric".
It's only been months trying to get them to work. How did I do it--beats the hell out of me, but I did.

Help, please. I also had the original VG1 disks and am desperately trying to get it to work in Mac 10.6.8 with Cubase 6.0.3. It certainly was the best guitar software product I've seen.

I've downloaded and run the installer, as per Haraldsson's note (thanks) and I copied over the content to a location on my drive, then set the content folder. Now what!

I see no application on my Mac to set initialise VG nor any reference to VG within Cubase. Am I missing a step somewhere?

Thanks

Hi Micky.

VG1 is not working in Cubase 6.0.3 Mac OSX 10.6.8 - as far as I have experienced it only works in Cubase 6.0.0 Mac OSX 10.6.8 so far...

Thanks, Haraldsson, that explains why I see nothing.

A shame, great product gone to waste.

I just started using Cubase 6.0.5 in 64-bit mode (instead of 32-bit mode I have been using) (Mac OSx 10.6.8) and it turns out that Virtual Guitarist 2 works fine now... so far.

I just learned that Waves are going 64-bit.

Hi, Harraldsson, I understand you finally VG2 going using Cubase 6.0.5 in 64-bit mode on Mac OSx 10.6.8. Any luck on VG1 on the same platform?

Hi xz69Micky.

After upgrading to Cubase 6.5 (64-bit) I am only using vst-plugins supporting 64-bit. But I have just tried Virtual Guitarist 2 (Version 2.0.0.422) And it apparently works fine in Cubase 6.5 (64-bit).

VG1 does not show up in Cubase 6.5 (64-bit) - it is "blacklisted" by Cubase (see Vst2xBlacklist Cubase (x86_64).xml in the Cubase preference folder).

I just completed a full system re-install (Cubase 6.5 64 bit on Windows 7 64 bit), including a re-install of Virtual Guitarist v1.0.0.0. Initially, I did run into the apparent installation hang at the "update registry" stage, as reported earlier in this thread. However, after much experimentation, I found that just being patient for 10-15 minutes would be rewarded with the installation suddenly coming back to life and progressing to the next screen (without any intervention by me!). The installation then completed without problems and both Acoustic and Electric VST are now running just fine on my system. Very happy about that, I would have hated not being able to use them anymore, they were a key instrument in many of my earlier projects. Just thought I'd share.

This is now one of the most read topics in this forum (2. most read, as far as I can see) and it sends a clear signal to Steinberg that we really love Virtual Guitarist and that we want an upgrade!

Be happy Steinberg... make us happy!
