Just wondering if some of you guys have setup a dual boot XP32 and VISTA 64... but point the both play insatllations towards one hard drive which has all the samples..

Been trying to do it and just wondered if there were any lessons to be learned or experiences to be shared...

I currently do it (have exactly the same OSes as you) and no problems with the VI finding the instrument samples.

To save time on installing the library twice, when you are installing for the second time on your other OS, specify a different path for the samples to be installed, cancel the library installation halfway, then when you open your PLAY instrument it should ask you to locate the samples. Simply point it to the path where it is already installed.
