I just bought Ardour (not for 45$, but I DID pay... I am an unemployed university student, best I could do).
Before I bought it today I had the free version for a few weeks, and I once connected my laptop to an external drive with a bunch of Native Instruments stuff on it.
Now whenever I open Ardour it says that the B4 Tonewheels can't be found and I need to install B4 again. I never did this in the first place, at least I don't think I did, and it's probably searching for the stuff on the external drive.
The only problem is that the window that pops up telling me t his only has a single "OK" button, and when I press it, the window just opens again telling me to install the B4 tonewheels. To be honest I don't even know what the B4 Tonewheels even are.
How do I get Ardour to stop looking for things that aren't there, and to the best of my knowledge I never asked it to look for?
I was hoping that downloading my paid-for version and using that would resolve the issue, but it did not.
Sometimes if I force-quit and then re-start Ardour, the B4 warning window goes away after a few clicks and the program works.
Sometimes that does not happen.
