I still use 2008 'cause I like it, the thing is I have just re-loaded my computer with Win 7 Pro and when I loaded BIAB I got this message "String NOSUPPORT-OS was not found in string table. Then seperate box SEVERE "NOSUPPORT-OS." I have never had this before with Win 7, I don't know what it means or how to fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Dave.

Have you tried starting the program by right-clicking on the shortcut and then selecting "Run as administrator"?

That's worth trying.

Regards,
Noel

As I recall, 2008 is pre-RealTracks (and RealDrums had just been introduced).

I would try a couple of things. First, try running as administrator as Noel indicated. But you may need to also set the compatibility mode to Windows XP or Vista and see if it works that way.

Also, make sure you didn't install BIAB to the "C:\Program Files" or "C:\Program Files (x86)" folder, as that will definitely cause problems also.

Dave, somebody has to say it: your version is ten years old. It's time to upgrade. You will not believe where the program is now with all the improvements, but surprisingly you should still feel basically at home using it.

Hi

Band-in-a-Box 2008 was the first year to have RealTracks, and I'd expect it to mostly work, but there would definitely be some issues, like the Roland Virtual Sound Canvas not being able to install.

A replacement synth would be $40 (Forte) or $49 (Cakewalk TTS-1), but since an update to 2018 Pro would only be $69, I'd definitely say that's the way to go, as there will likely be more issues anyway, and the upgrade will fix them.

Cheers
Kent

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac review on www.guitaren.dk!

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.

Band-in-a-Box®: Part of The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig!

Check out the latest Sweetwater article from Mitch Gallagher: "The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig" - he's included Band-in-a-Box!

"The king of backing track creation, in my opinion, is Band-in-a-Box (BIAB). It can do everything from country to jazz to metal, with a huge array of instruments and options. There is a great selection of songs and BIAB tracks available for free on the web, so you don’t even have to make your own."
