Just installed the latest Piano Pads and it throws up an error in the vst inside Live and has lost all the other Labs already installed. Ran repair but no joy. There is no way to uninstall a Lab from within the Spitfire management app.
Yes I know it’s free (and very good) but it continues to be clunky!

I've had 0 issues with either Labs or BBC Discover, quite on the contrary I think their software manager is the most user-friendly and smooth from them all.

On Mac I had a lot of trouble Labs not finding the content, which of course is on a different drive. Hadn‘t tried it for a while though...

I have the same problems. This app is really buggy for me, all other sample apps work always as expected, but in Labs installing new plugins always destroys older stuff. After redownloading and reinstalling multiple times it works and I decided not to to download new Labs Plugins anymore :) and only use what is there.

I have Epic Strings from Spitfire and it's sampler looks like Labs, but it doesn't have any problems. But ok, there is only one library installed.

I couldn't figure how to install libraries on two computers with one account so I gave up on them.

Have the Spitfire app on each?

Yes but when I had installed a library in a computer, it did not shows up in the other ine any more...

It shows only those as installed which are installed on that computer. Kind of expected I guess.
You can filter for showing installed, not installed or all I think...
