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

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.

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."
