How to force Rapture Pro to refresh imported Dimension Pro content?

Hi,
 
Does anyone know how to refresh the imported Dimension Pro content within Rapture Pro? 
 
I added a new bunch of Multisamples and Programs to Dimension Pro which appeared in Dimension Pro immediately, but they're missing in the "D-Pro User Imported" section of Rapture Pro.
 
Re-installing Rapture Pro fixed it, but it seems a bit of a brute force way of doing it.
 
Is there another way of forcing it to refresh the imported programs?
 
M.

RP knows to search the DP multisample folder but only copies the DP programs during install. You will need to manually copy new programs from "C:\ProgramData\Cakewalk\Dimension Pro\Programs" into the RP program folder. During installation RP created "C:\Cakewalk Content\Rapture Pro\Programs\Dimension Pro (legacy)" by copying "C:\ProgramData\Cakewalk\Dimension Pro\Programs." Refresh the "Dimension Pro (legacy)" with a new copy of "C:\ProgramData\Cakewalk\Dimension Pro\Programs" or just copy the new folders from "C:\ProgramData\Cakewalk\Dimension Pro\Programs" or re-run the RP installer and let it do the copy for you.
 
Newer installers are RP aware and will install DP content into the RP path and ignore the DP install. Then it is necessary manually refresh DP. It is possible to collapse everything into RP so that both use the same programs and samples. The easiest way uses directory junctions and leaves the registry untouched. Rapture too can be pointed to RP but needs a little more work because it cannot handle flac files.

Once things are copied and such, I believe hitting F5 while in the browser will refresh the available sounds - been a long time, so my memory may well be faulty.

F5 works for older Cakewalk sfz engine synths that rely on programs.lst files not Rapture Session/Pro. Instead Rapture Pro/Session build their program display on the fly instead of reading a programs.lst file so there is no F5 function.
