Yesterday I quickly composed a tune and saved the BIAB file on my desktop.

This morning I went to open it and I get the following message, '_SOLFUNK.STY style not found'

How can I correct this? Attached is the file and a shot of the error message.

It means that _SOLFUNK.STY is not found in your \Band-in-a-Box\Styles folder or in the same folder as the song file. Perhaps you are running a different installation of Band-in-a-Box than you were yesterday (e.g. on a different hard drive)? Do a search on your mac for _SOLFUNK and see where it is...

I searched my mac and found it under Applications > Band-In-a-Box > Styles > _SOLFUNK.STY. Its there with all the other styles.

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B2zYcxzQACL4MXd2Mnozem8yRDQ

Yet, when I open a song I created using this style I still get the error message saying it can't be found.

I use BIAB directly from the UltraPlusPak external hard drive, and I save all my files there. I can't understand how it cannot find the style.

I also tried playing the demo song that features this style. Again I got the error message "_solfunk.sty not found'

Nope, same version, same computer, same everything.

Have you tried using Disk Utility to repair permissions on the drive ?
Usually when files are physically there, but not accessible from within a program it points to permission trouble.

If you select the file in the Finder and do "Get Info" on it is there "Read and Write" permissions for the account you're using ?

Strange... how about if you copy the _SOLFUNK.STY style to the same folder as you have your song saved?

If you re running bb from th USB drive, then bb willl look for the style in the styles folder of the USB drive, not the main drive.

Well, I found a solution.

I created a new folder on the external BIAB drive called 'Originals', and placed the song there. After closing BIAB and restarting it began to work correctly using the correct style.

So my question is, do you have to keep songs on the same drive as the styles folder in order for the song to find the correct style?

No, you can have songs on any drive. Just make sure that your styles folder is in the same folder as your Band-in-a-Box application that you are running.
