A fresh install of Live 9 is not detecting packs in the Factory Packs folder

I transferred Live to a new computer and moved the Factory Packs folder along with it, hoping it would pick it up. It didn't. I have dozens of GB of packs and I would like to avoid downloading them all and re-installing them if possible. Anyone know if there is a quick scanning option?

    Live needs to be told to reindex the Packs. Here is how you do it:


    Check the Packs directory in Live's Preferences

    Navigate to that directory to ensure that the Packs are actually placed there.

    Assuming that they are, return to Live's Preferences and change the Packs directory to anything (such as the Desktop)

    When Live asks if you would like to move existing Packs, say "No".

    Restart Live (You may not have to do this)

    In Live's Preferences, change the Packs directory back to the correct folder. Again, when prompted, say "No".

    Restart Live one more time. (Again you may not have to do this, just check if browser has updated)

    I tried a couple of times, but still not working; neither Live 9.1 nor Live 9.2b4 are seeing the packs any longer.
