Anyone had to rescan Live 8 library after using Live 9?


If I open a Live 9 project then quit and open an unrelated Live 8 project, Live 8 feels the need to rescan and rebuild it's whole library (which takes an hour or so) before it can get started.  I had the same issue in beta version.  

Anyone had the same problem?  Any suggested fixes?

    I did the first time I opened 8 after I installed Live 9. However, I have not had to do it after that. I find it kind of strange that you have had to rescan it every time. Did you set the Live 8 Library file directory in Live 9's preferences? That could possibly help?

    Not sure what I did wrong but I'm missing all the drum rack samples after upgrading to 9 Suite. I did try opening 8 after downloading 9 so not sure if that affected it...
