I have a copy of New Orleans Pianist that I purchased from PG Music several years ago. It is installed on my old Win XP computer that isn't used anymore. I want to install it on my Win 7 computer but I can't seem to get it to install. I have the floppies, but no floppy drive in my Win 7 machine. I know that the songs are all MIDI files, so I can install them but I would like to install the whole program. Anyone know how I can go about this?

Thank you

Bogart

I should have mentioned that my floppy drive on the XP machine doesn't work, so I have to use an external hard drive to do any transfers. That is how I got the MIDI files out of the XP machine and onto the external drive. I don't see any installer.

If it's a 16-bit application, you will not be able to run it in 64-bit Windows 7.

I don't know if PGMusic has created a new installer for that particular program, but you might want to contact them. They have updated installers for some of their other content-rich programs.

I called tech support when this happened to me. They provided a patch which got me running in Win 7.

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
