Installing Nebula on a multi-boot computer

Postby ericus » Fri Jul 02, 2010 10:17 pm

Hi guys,

Until now, I was using a copy of Nebula Pro on my XP 32 bits DAW and one on my laptop.

Since the laptop is getting old and clunky, I want to install my other license of Nebula on the other partition of my DAW, which is running XP 64. My nebulatemprepository is on a second hard drive (named "H").

Can I keep my nebulatemprepository there (on "H") and use it with both Nebula Pro 32 and 64? If so, is there any problem using it with AlexB's PRO console and EQs?

Thanks in advance!

I got a similar issue than Ericus.

I installed Win 7 64 and Nebula x64.

My Neb. repository and .n2p/.n2v is on another partition (my previous x86 install).

I was thinking pointing out my libraries to Nebula x64 using "AlternativeDataPath" and call it a day.But unfortunately not.

Neb. x64 install/licencing went smooth,upgraded to the last version too.I edited the .xml file as Enrique mention it in couple of threads.

It's not working.Neb.swear that it don't wanna follow instructions.

Does anybody got an idea :?: :?:

Upload here you both partition Nebula master page .XML files.

Post here the path of the alternative data path where N2P and N2V files are already copied.

I'll edit your XML files for you.

Here we go.

I was just thinking that my drive/partition letters change when I boot from one or the other system.

My C:\ become D:\ in Win 7 x64...


My n2p/n2v are stored in :
C:\Program Files\Nebula Pro (under x86 OS)

and become :
D:\Program Files\Nebula Pro (under x64 OS where I want it to work)

1. Create a new folder in D called NebulaComercialLibraries (The x86 OS partition)
2. Create inside this folder 2 folders: Vectors, other called Programs
3. Move all your libraries less INIT emulation programs to this folders.
4. Add
<ALTERNATIVEDATAPATH> D:\NebulaComercialLibraries\ </ALTERNATIVEDATAPATH>
<ALTERNATIVEDATAPATH> C:\NebulaComercialLibraries\ </ALTERNATIVEDATAPATH>
in all .XML Nebula master files after DATAPATH.

Due your D partition change depending the OS, you have added two alternative data path, one will fail but the second one will works.

Enrique.Maybe I wasn't clear enuff.I just keep a multi-boot to be able to read old projects and be able to enter Win 7 in case of viruses or big crash.
And for a smooth transition,for a limited time.Soon I will exclusively work in Win 7.

I don't want to move my n2p/n2v.I want them to stay where they are.
What I want is my Nebula x64 to "find them".That's it.

I understand created two "alternativedatapath" to be sure that one will be recognized.

But again in my case I don't want to move my full library.My system "room" is optimized they're good where they are.

Does that make sense ?
