Hi,

I recently upgraded to the EverythingPAK. I first downloaded everything that was downloadable and everything worked fine. When my disk arrived I uninstalled everything and reinstalled from the disk. Everything is working great except Coyote WT and Virtual Sound Canvas did not install and I can’t figure out how to get them installed.

Can someone please tell me how to install Coyote WT and Virtual Sound Canvas from my disk?

Thanks,
Jim

JimBen,

What operating system do you have? (e.g. Vista 64 bit, Win 7 32 bit, etc.)

Regards,
Noel

I also upgraded to BB 2011 and had problem with GM.DLS not found, and when loading Realtrack got CoyoteWT crashing. I then install BB on a laptop and upgraded to 2011 and all work fine. The difference is that my workstation is running Windows XP Professional 64 bit. The laptop running XP Professional 32 bit. I believe it has something to do with 64 bit.

BTW, the GM.DLS is found in Windows\system32\drivers\etc directory as expected.

More problems. With Windows XP 32 bit, the "Cannot find gm.dls" message no longer displayed, BB 2011 works fine with midi but when I open a RealTrack file. The play back is stretched by at least 10 times, and the volume is very low and sound stretched. The laptop basically is not responding to any command, and I had to power it off.

At this point BB 2011 does not work on neither XP 64 nor XP 32 bit. Pretty doomed right now.

Hi fcwong,

It would be good if you started a new thread (in Band In A Box - Windows) with your problems. Others will see it and jump in to help. BIAB runs fine on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. The VSC/DXi soft synth that ships with BIAB, however, will only run on a 32-bit operating system.

One of the first things that I'd check is video drivers. I've noticed on these forums that many unusual problems can occur if a computer's video driver is out of date.

What are you two computers' specifications?

Regards,
Noel

P.S. It would also be worthwhile using the toll-free number to get some help.

Songwriting Feedback - "Why This Forum Matters"

Our Forum is a great resource when you're wanting to discuss Band-in-a-Box (or other PG Music Inc. programs), but it's so much more!

In addition to the different sections we have for our products (Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, PowerTracks, and Other PG Music Programs), there are also places on our Forum to share your songs, YouTube videos, ask for tech help for problems not related to our software, "off topic" discussions, and more!

Forum user David Snyder shared his thoughts on Why This Forum Matters in his recent Songwriting post, which has some great feedback, including:

It occurred to me this morning that it is the group effort that counts. That is, one kind word about another member's song, one piece of encouragement or generous suggestion, might cause that person to write the greatest song ever written, which might then go on to have a massive impact on some stranger's life, cause someone to fall in love, or turn their life around, and literally change the course of history. Because songs do that.

OR, one kind word given to YOU might cause you to write the greatest song ever written in the coming year, and that song could go on to have an impact on untold thousands. Who knows! It happens all the time.

But the point is, it is not about any one of us, it is about all of us, the group.

Read through the whole conversation (and join in!): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=447431

...and a big THANK YOU to David for sharing his thoughts!
