Live 9.1 update replaces Live 9 file directory and deletes manually created files/folders
Hi, just ran through the 9.1 upgrade on pc and on starting was prompted to re-enter the custom VST plug in folder. When searching I also discovered that previously installed packs were appearing in the browser but not showing any files under the folder/pack name. I had originally manually created folders in the c:/program data/ableton/live 9 suite, specificall to store VST plug in dll files as well as installed pack files as I wanted to keep all related Ableton application files in one central location, all these custom created folders were deleted during the upgrade process. Why? I now need to reinstall all VST plug ins and packs from scratch, this should have been noted in the install/upgrade process so that I could temporarily copy the folders out and bring them back in after upgrade. Can someone confirm whether I will need to reinstall from scratch or if there is a way to salvage the previous folders and link to them in the options-file/folders?
