Default Need help with installing Structure / Goliath - Structure Edition

Hi all
is there anyone out there who can tell me how to install “Goliath - Structure Edition“ the right way?? I mean, so I can use it and everything is working the way it's supposed to be??? (I mean, I payed good money for it - it would be nice if I could use it someday... but until today it's only troubles!)
I tried it all, a hundred times... it doesn't work! And I can't find anything on the Digi-page that tells me how to do it - besides this one here:

http://www.digidesign.com/index.cfm?...&categoryid=34

But the thing is, NO - I don't want the sample content of Structure and Goliath to be on my boot drive!!! I want it to be on the sample-drive!!!
(That's what even Digi usually is recommending - but not with this one here and without telling me how to do it...!!)
I just can't find anything that tells me how to install both, Structure AND Goliath, with the plug-in on my Boot-Drive, the samples on the Sample-Drive... and with the right path/route.
"Goliath" installer forces me to either install everything on my boot-drive (which in this case is what they recommend but what I don't want to do) or then to install everything on the sample-drive. But when I do this it just doesn't work...
And yes, I'd like to load Goliath-stuff directly from the patch IN Structure - I don't want to have to browse and load every patch seperately...

Any help would be much appreciated!!
Cheers

Thanks a lot guys - great forum!
Looks like I obviously am the only one who bought "Goliath-Structure Edition" - no wonder I can't make it work.

Install the initial programs and samples (Disc 1) into the folder Structure Factory Libraries. This is usually in a drive that has <Applications: Digidesign:Structure:Structure Factory Libraries> already installed. It can be drive that is separate from the system drive. If you have Leopard, the samples from the Samples DVD 01 will have to be manually installed. The installation program says that they have been, but it's a lie. You have to do it yourself. The install program creates a folder that is named DVD 01, but it has no data in it. Just copy the actual instrument files from the folder with the same name on DVD 1. Then manually copy the other 9 DVD samples folders to the same folder. After this procedure, you should have a 40.18 Gbyte folder called <Goliath Structure Edition> inside the <Structure Factory Libraries> folder.

Make sure that there is an alias that points to this folder in the <Users:Shared:Library:Application Support: Digidesign:Air:Structure:Favorites> folder on your main system drive. When you instantiate Structure in PT, you should see the at the bottom of the menu when you click on the patch selector arrow.

I'm not currently running this on an Intel Mac, so I can't speak to that, but the pointers and data structures should be the same.

I hope this helps.

Hey ssorelle

can't believe having received a reply after almost two month!!! Thanks a lot!!
I have to admit, within these weeks I tried it four times (not a lie - installing, de-installing, installing, de-installing and then again and again...!) - funnywise I always tried it the way as you suggested now and it didn't work... the fifth time it worked, though... don't ask me why...

However, glad stuff is running now... and still very happy to have received your message as well! Thanks a lot for writing and your efforts!! It's much appreciated!
Best wishes
ivo
