Well, after playing with the BIAB for awhile (after reinstalling XP) I thought I'd check out the tablature. I clicked on the "Notation or Chord Sheet Window" [Ctrl W] got an ERROR message frown and then tried the "Lead Sheet Window" [Alt W] and also got an ERROR message frown . The error message read "PG Music Font is not installed. Make sure PGMUS.TTF is in your Windows System directory. at: 007E0400".

Is this a call tech support problem?

Probably not, but of course it never hurts to get the advice directly from the company instead of us.

The necessary fonts are installed by the BIAB installer. Since you put on a new copy of XP, it lost track of what fonts are available and you need to reinstall BIAB from their supplied external drive.

Fonts can be done manually but the installer is easier.

You can reinstall BIAB right over your existing copy if you like. Just be sure to get all appropriate updates and install them as well.

Geezzz, this sucks. frown (But thanks for the info!!)

Okay, I have FOUR BIAB discs plus the recently purchased BIAB UltraPlusPak HD. That is, (1) BIAB Pro+2010 w/RealBand, (2) BIAB MegPak+10Pak 2012 w/RealBand, (3) BIAB MegaPAK RealCombos 2012 w/RealBand and, (4)BIAB Pro RealCombos. Plus. the new BIAB HD.

Which one should I reinstall again for those fonts? My fear is that I'll go BACKWARDS and make a bigger mess of things.
Or, well, maybe support can give me a way to just install the fonts back?

Just the main program should do it. A call to PG Music wouldn't hurt at this point.

roqk,

Just to add what Matt has said, the main program installation is all that's needed. I downloaded the PlusPak for 2013 and this file is called bandinabox_realband_2013_pluspak.exe. Running this will fix the issue. Also, once you resinstall the program files, it's necessary to (re)install updates.

All the best,
Noel

Quickest way is to run the Setup.exe on your new hard drive and choose the minimal install option (or custom option) - it will install the fonts.

You can do a Windows search (Start button, Search) for pg*.ppt, and when you find them, right click on them and choose "install."

This is the right way to solve this problem.

The "minimal install" selection is viewable only after you invoke the Installer .exe for BiaB.

Be sure to read the prompts and understand what you are checking.

I called tech support yesterday. There were also a couple other issues that depressed me, like the demos not working and some RealTracks not working (again!) and it was recommended I simply reinstall BIAB. I reinstalled the "ULTRAPLUS PAK" and it's working great!! No more stress!! Will install the updates next.

Sounds great. The only real trick is to remember where you installed the program to, and the RealTracks to. Then continue to use those locations when installing updates, patches and add-ons.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
