I have today updated the player from version .52 to .68 and it has been a big mess, as the new version was unable to use the data stored on an external SSD (I don't have any internal SSD installed VSL instrument, but guess it would also fail). iLok licensing works fine in both cases.
Reverting to the previous player version, it works again. I have tried twice and finally decided to keep the older player. Anybody else with such kind of problem?
