Hey there ~.

Just purchased Drums Overkill, and went to install it and activate it from within Kontakt 5 in my DAW on both of my computers.

My main studio setup: 2008 MacPro OS 10.7.5 2x 3Ghz Quad Core 32GB RAM, Digital Performer 8 (64-bit), Komplete 8.

My mobile setup: 2014 MacBook Pro OS 10.10.4 Yosemite 2.8Ghz Intel Core i7, Digital Performer 8 (64-bit), Komplete 10.


- No success on the MacPro (OS 10.7.5), with being able to ADD the (Drums Overkill) LIBRARY into Kontakt 5 in my DAW (Digital Performer 8).

- All good however, on my MacBook Pro (OS 10.10.4), in succeeding to add the (Drums Overkill) Library and Activate it from within Kontakt 5 in my DAW (Digital Performer 8).

QUESTION: Can anyone help or offer suggestions as to how I can rectify the issue that's getting in the way of my being able to even add the Drums Overkill Library to Kontakt 5 running on my Mac Pro?

Thanks in advance, vpg.
