I hope this helps.. Here are a couple of options, the first is from Magix Support when I emailed them for help:
Option One from Magix Support:
Their answer about getting Independence Pro Standalone working to use it as a vst and then installing Independence Premium:
They recommend a clean new installation of the Independence.
Start Windows "Apps & Features" and search for Independence.
De-install the following entries:
Independence Pro Standard
Independence Pro VST Plugins
Independence Pro Library Common Files
Then follow the instructions on the screen to uninstall.
Check the following folders and delete any existing Independence files:
c:\Users\All Users\MAGIX\Independence Libraries\bundles\
c:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\MAGIX Services\Independence Libraries\
c:\Users\All Users\MAGIX\Independence Libraries\libraries\
Then empty the recycle bin.
Installing the plugin
Restart the installation of Independence Pro Standard.
Download the latest version here: https://my.hidrive.com/lnk/yWNAPscl
Installing the Library
Restart the installation of the Pro Premium Library
Download the latest version here: https://my.hidrive.com/lnk/RWCgAuUI
Then I emailed them the following question:
My question: When I re-install Independence Pro Standard, do I go ahead and activate it with the Independence Pro serial number or should I activate the Independence Pro Premium library first with the serial number for the Independence Pro Premium?
Their answer: Activate the Independence Pro Standard serial number first, then activate Independence Pro Premium Library serial number.
Just a note, the 70 GB premium library installation.. I let that install into it’s default directly on my primary hard drive. Then I moved it to another hard drive after I activated the Independence Pro Premium. That meant I had to clear some space to accommodate the 70 GBs until I could move it but so far everything is working good now.
The default installation location is: C:\Windows\ProgramFiles (x86)\Magix\Independence Libraries
If the above doesn’t work here are the steps I used and made a document about which has similar steps as above but more detailed:
Option Two from my list of steps:
Reinstalling Independence/installing Independence Pro Premium
To install Independece Pro Premium Suite I followed the steps below to reinstall Independence. Then I did the following:
I did not reinstall Independence Pro from the Samplitude X5 suite options.
I temporarily copied the 70 GB Independence Pro Library (from the D: drive where I stored the Magix Sample Libraries) into the C:/program files x86/Magix/Independence Pro folder (see other document for exact location) which is the default location of where this library is installed if done from scratch.
I ran and installed Independence Pro Standard dlm (version 3.5 not the 3.6 version because the 3.5 was the one that came from the Magix website on 6-20-20 so it probably is the most current version even though it’s 3.5)
Then I ran the Independence ProLibrary dlm (or Premium as they are the same dlm) and selected online install and then clicked repair and because I had copied the entire library into the default location it only took a few seconds for this to run because it recognized I had already installed it.
Then I opened Independence Pro stand alone and I DID NOT activate it at this point. I closed the activate screen for activating Independence Pro Standard to activate it later. I think the mistake I made before was activating the Standard before I activated the Premium instruments. Then after I closed the activation screen, I selected to load an instrument (clicked on the load instrument option) and chose one of the instruments. Then it asked for me to activate the Premium instruments. I entered the serial for the Independence Pro Premium Suite and it said it was activated and unlocked.
Then I loaded an instrument from the Pro library and it worked.
Then I closed the app and reopened it and it asked about activating it. I then used the serial number for Independence Pro Standard to activate Independence Pro and it activated it.
Then I went to preferences and library and tried to load the library from the D: drive so I could delete it from the C: drive and it would not let me add the library. I then removed the library from the list which made it an empty list and then clicked on add library and navigated to the Independence Pro Library on the D: drive. Then I loaded and instrument and everything seems to be working as it should. Yay!
To reinstall the Independence Sampler and its Content Library, follow these steps:
Go to the Windows Control Panel and uninstall Samplitude Pro X3.
Be sure to also remove all Independence installations, folders and files from your system. To do this, go to the Windows Control Panel and select "Programs and Features". Then, uninstall "Magix Independence Libraries Common Files", "Magix Independence Pro 3.3 VST-Plugins" and "Magix Independence Pro Software Suite 3.3".
Delete the following folders:
C:\Users\All Users\MAGIX\Independence Libraries\bundles\-
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\MAGIX Services\Independence Libraries\-
C:\Users\All Users\MAGIX\Independence Libraries\libraries\-
If the program is already installed on your computer, you will be given the option to either "Modify" or "Remove" the installation.
The dialog that follows gives you the option of selecting or deselecting additional programs for installation. Select Independence.
Click "Continue" to start the installation.
