Have used pulse for the felt instrument products and went well for me.
How do we simply download for backup with Pulse, instead of also installing?
This option would save time and space when only backup is needed, as the rar-files suffice.
Years of carefully saving all downloaded .rar, .zip and installer files on separate archive drives have left me totally dependent on their availability. Continuata gives you the option to save them, as do Soundiron's, Toontrack's and Arturia's downloaders, to name a few.We may offer the option to not delete the files at some point in the future ...
Old habits die hard. So this feels like an essential feature, even though I could (in theory) learn how to get WinRar or whatever to create multiple part archives for me.
You would think so. But as soon as I tried it I ran into an anomaly that needs sorting out. I created a couple of multi-part .rar archives using WinRar. Easy, just as you say. I then tried testing/unpacking them with 7zip and got an error message on each one. After about half an hour on Google, I concluded that no one knows for certain whether or not there's an actual problem, or just an incompatibility in 7zip that can be safely ignored.Any archiving software can do this, like 7zip. Creating the multi-part archive takes mere seconds.
I switched computers recently and had to relink all my pulse libraries. But when I pointed at the libraries, Pulse said it still couldn't find the library and did I really want to re-link there. I did, but I'm a bit concerned that the downloader doesn't really know what version I have installed. Is there a way to check?
Any news on that download package option?
