jlb,

I'd suggest to try "Live Help" on the main PG Music page. They'll probably be more helpful to help with your installation than posting here.

Good luck

Bruce

Hi,

Does the main Band-in-a-Box installer package complete successfully? What is the exact name of the Package that fails? If it is "Install All RealTracks", please try opening the RealTracks Packages folder on the flash drive, and install each package individually and see if that works.

Hi Jlb, and welcome !
Is there any other text in the actual message you are getting ?

I am running El Cap, and have had no problems installing, or running any of the updates on BIAB.

Added: Help Video button Added to the Audio Harmony dialog.
Improved: ABC opening improvements with some accidentals, and leadin bars that occur in middle of song.
Improved: Audio harmonies now used Improved algorithms, and can be easily set using N voices above, M voices below (and have additional functions like duplicate melody, and dup. melody octave below).

Improved: Support for RealTracks that should be transposed only lower (ie heavy metal guitars) and for future Improved metal guitar comping.

Fixed: File > Open Special > Open Audio was importing audio instead of opening it in a new song.
Fixed: In the Bar Settings window, "Chordsheet and Notation - Start a New Line" should say "Notation - Start a New Line".
Fixed: It was not possible to record audio using WAS audio drivers if "Output always on" was disabled.
Fixed: Misc. RealTracks updates.
Fixed: Quicklist drums picker sometimes showing too many drums in the list.
Fixed: Redundant flash messages were showing.
Fixed: Removing a custom drums from a track would still display Drums as the name of the loop in the track.
