Omnisphere keygen used to say patch successful, now it says patch failed. Should I uninstall & retry

    Windows 10, Omnisphere 2 off of the famous piratebay torrent.

    I have both .dll's in the Program Data file. I opened Omnisphere, pasted the challenge code into the keygen (Note, I did not know I needed to patch. Without patching anything, I generated codes using the keygen). First time, the DAW crashed. Every attempt after that simply did not give me the correct response code. I read somewhere that I had to patch first with the keygen, so I selected both .dll's and they patched successfully. After retrying after successful patching, the codes were simply not correct.

    I tried downloading another keygen from R2R (which didn't come in the original download) and from now on I get "patch failed" whenever I try to patch with any of the keygens I have.

    What are my options? I haven't seen anyone else have this problem. Should I try completely reinstalling, and clearing out all residual omnisphere files with a directory searcher? Or is there still hope/something I can do to fix it now?

    Which update or version are you trying to patch exactly?

    How do I tell? This was the most reliable torrent currently available on pirate bay. I haven't used or had omnisphere on my pc before today. All I know is that it's omnisphere 2.

    Open the installer location & navigate to "Omnisphere 2 Installer.exe". Hover your mouse over the file & it should show you this:

    File description: Omnisphere Setup
    File version: 2.?.?.?
    Date created: ?
    Size: ?

    Question marks will be replaced by info related to your installer. Most recent version is 2.5.0.0 with 2.6 updates (Software_Update_2_6_4c being the latest). Also make sure that you have the latest patch library update for any installed/updated version.

    Depending on you version, try updating to the next level or, Software_Update_2_6_3c. Do not patch anything until all updates are done.
    If this does not work, you may have to do an uninstall and a fresh install. Installing Omnisphere requires patience & understanding.

    Usually "Patch Failed" means that the file is already patched. (It fails because it can't patch the already patched file).

    There are general instructions that apply to most situations such as:
    Run things as administrator
    Make sure to patch ALL instances of files to be patched to make sure you have patched them all.
    ProgramData is one place, but wherever the DLLs get placed for DAW to find is another place.
    Doing a search is one way to find wherever they may be.

    Off topic, but somewhat related, I was interested in trying this but do you have to install the update sequentially? Or can you just use the most recent update?

    Thanks for the direction. My version is 2.5.0.0. As for whether I'm updated to the next level, how do I know if I am? The installer came with an "Omnisphere 2 Data Updater.exe" which I ran after installing the first .exe. Is this what you're talking about?

    Well, I've found 2 DLLs in the Program Data file, and I've set my DAW to scan that Program Data file for plugins. Another set of x32 and x64 DLL's are in a "Patches" folder that came with my torrent. I've tried to patch the keygen with those as well and got the same failed message. The usual folder my DAW scans for (vstplugins) does not contain Omnisphere or any of it's DLLs for that matter.

    Should I be searching my whole computer for the rest? I don't know where other DLLs can be or whether they exist, because I'm pretty sure I chose the destination folders for everything during the installation process.

    You should be able to update to Software version 2.6.3c. The Data Updater is for the main database I believe.

    Latest updates for 2.6.3c are:
    Patch_Library_Update_v2_6_0c
    Software_Update_2_6_3c
    Bob_Moog_Tribute_Patch_Library_Update_1_4e (if installed)

    The two dll files to be pathed are in :
    c:\ProgramData\Spectrasonics\plug-ins\64bit\ and directory where your 64bit vst plugins are installed by default.

    Example: C:\VSTPlugins, C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VST or, in my case, E:\Plugins\VST

    Alright. Just for precaution, do you mean to say that despite my keygen errors I can install the update on top of my current installation? I don't have to reinstall to fix my problem, correct?

    And next, after installing the update and intending to use the keygen to activate it, what specific steps should I follow?

    One other note regarding the authorization...
    This is something I wrote regarding the 2.6.3 Software Update from June 6 2020:

    "This was the longest it's taken me to get the response code accepted and reload Omnisphere without challenge screen coming back up (and often with an error).

    I began to worry about this because Pirate gave warning on the Keyscape update ...
    I'd opened it in FL Studio, Standalone and Studio One quite a few ties with no success but finally it took after a restart (no clue if that helped).

    Well, as R2R said in 2015
    "1) Crashing Issue
    Due to the bug of Omnisphere 2, it may crash when you paste the license.
    This is not related to our patch but legal users also encounter this issue.
    Try other hosts when you experience those crashes.
    Once it accepts license, the issue does not happen."

    Maybe it's still the same thing [​IMG]"

    So, it can be frustrating, if you SWEAR you have done everything right and it still fails...
    Take a deep breath ... do something else for a few minutes & come back fresh :yes:
    Good Luck!

    If it says that it means that the Omnisphere.dll is already patched. So make sure to patch all the Omnisphere.dll files including the 32 bit and 64bit ones that are included in C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Vstplugins and C:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\Vstplugins and the other two in C:\ProgramData\Spectrasonics\plug-ins and C:\ProgramData\Spectrasonics\plug-ins\64bit assuming that you have installed using the default locations in the installer. Because probably your DAW isn't using the dlls that are in the ProgramData folder.


    Keep us updated.

    I have patched all the .dlls I can find. There's a patches folder which has .dlls (and it was included with the torrent when I downloaded it) and there's .dlls in the ProgramData folder. There are no omnisphere .dlls in Steinburg (I didn't follow default setup locations).

    Despite the patching, I get the same challenge code from omnisphere, and I get the same generated code from the keygen, which is wrong every time.

    With Omnisphere 99.99999% of the the problems during installation are because of the user. There is not one single issue that has not been solved and explained in this forum. NONE. Every user will say the same thing, "I have done it all" but they ALWAYS miss something. To put an end to your dilemma do the following:
    1. Download the latest updates and place everything on Desktop in a single folder
    2. Get TeamViewer,
    3. Send me a PM
    4. I will install it for you.

Wow. I'm blown away. My life just changed. I'll thank you, Pirate, on behalf of this poor lost user, a thousand times! I'm a lost boy who you helped greatly, once upon a time. You are a living legend and epitomize the best of our moral nature. TYVM. No, I'm not exaggerating. You ROCK!
