Spark+Ableton problems need help
« on: February 08, 2012, 12:31:37 pm »
hello, i just got my spark. loving it so far
but i cant for the life of me get it to work in ableton.
the spark.dll has been placed in my vst folder, but ableton is not finding it. ive tried to place the spark in an individual folder by itself and reroute the vst scan to that folder, and it came up blank, as if the spark.dll doesnt exist. please help

okay figured it out. gonna post it here so anybody with future problems can refer to this
what worked for me-
i reinstalled spark, and when i was prompted to install the vst 64, i installed it in a different folder than the vst 32, as the 64 would overwrite the 32 and we dont want that.

Ah good, you figured that out. I was about to ask what paths did you provide to the installer.

Using Windows 7 64bit, I usually keep the 64bit code (apps, VSTs) under "Program Files" and every 32bit code under "Program Files (x86)" to avoid any confusion :)

Hi antoni,
glad to know that you find what was the problem.
I modified the installer so that will be more clear for the user that they have to choose 2 different folders.

BTW, the x86 folder is for all the non 64 bit applications.
