There are 2 parts to percussion in Finale, the MIDI Maps and the Layouts. MIDI Maps must be copied to the MIDI Device Annotation folder, location varies depending on OS. Check the ReadMe files that came with the templates for specific locations. The Layouts are built into the template files.
Because you mention that the MIDI Map column in Score Manager doesn't display the VDL options, then I'd say that is where you'd need to look. If you upgraded Finale versions then copy/paste the XML (Percussion MIDI Maps) from the previous version to the new version. Just moving them will give you the same problem but with that older version of Finale.
