Have you run Service Center to activate the library?

Yes, I have done that. What happens is that service center signs me in, and after I put in the activation code, it says it is activating, but I will leave it like that for days and it won't do anything. I have to restart my computer to be able to do it again.

Contact Native Instruments. It sounds like a Kontakt issue.

How do you make flames really closed in finale 2014? I've been trying all sorts of things but I can't figure out how to do it.

Document>Document Options>Grace Notes
Set Grace Note Playback duration to 64 EDUs, and if that isn't closed enough, go back and change it to 32 EDUs!

Edit: This is for Finale 2012, but I would assume it's very similar in 2014

Check out the TapSpace forums. There's a wealth of knowledge in there.

Does NoteFlight allow third party sounds? I don't know of any free notation programs that host third party sound libraries.

Are you entering your grace notes with simple/speedy entry or the articulation tool? The articulation tool grace notes generally don't have a playback capability. The speedy/simple notes will playback. Using simple/speedy, enter the note as you would regularly then change it to a grace note within that note entry tool.

I also tried that, but it doesn't work either. Everything I have tried doesn't work.

Are you wanting to get the playback of the grace and principal notes or the visual spacing closer together?

Use the steps above regarding Document>Document Options>etc. and set the playback to 16 EDUs. If that's not tight enough make it smaller. If there is no change whatever in the playback, you may want to trash your Finale preferences and reset them. trashing preferences would be a last resort step. This is all based on the presumption you are using the full version of Finale.

i am using a full version of finale. i have also tried setting the EDUs to -3600 somthing before and they were still really really open.
i think i have the like, educational version for students of finale, but im not for sure about that. would that possibly be a problem?

There is no difference between the Full and Academic versions of Finale other than the price and the ability to upgrade at the lower price. Have you set the EDUs to 16 as I suggested? Setting them to a negative number would theoretically have it played prior to the principal note, btw. Verify that you have Finale and not PrintMusic. PrintMusic is a step down from the full Finale version.

Is there a way to control the pitch (or size or whatever) of the suspended cymbal attached at the top of the marimba and/or vibe instruments? I seem to remember in a past life being able to do this, but now I can't figure out how for the life of me. Right now the marimba cymbal is really splashy and the vibe cymbal sounds like a nice big suspended. I'd prefer them both to be that big suspended sound. Any ideas?

There isnt a way to change it on the acutal marimba/vibe instrument, BUT, you can use banks to put different sized cymbals and even any other type of percussion instrument youd want.

How do you span tuplets over barlines in Sibelius? (It's obvious Mike Jackson is using Sibelius, so it's definitely possible)

You have to select the two bars you want the tuplet to cross and click that "Join" button up in the "Home" tab. It should have a prompt to select what you want to replace the bar line with, which can be another barline.

I'm having issues importing XML files into Finale 14. I have tried files from both Sibelius and Finale 14 from another person.

Any time I hit import it starts to load up but then crashes the program. Are there any fixes for this?
