When I switched from Windows 7 to Windows 10 many of midi files caused the program to crash. I talked to support many times, most treated me like I was an idiot, but some tried to help. One guy convinced me to upgrade from 2011 to 2014, $150 dollars later and no help. One of their people told me to delete my sysex messages from a midi file and this worked program didn't crash. The problem is almost all my files have sysex messages. I finally went on ebay and bought a computer with Windows XP and everything works fine. I can't believe no one else has this problem.

I believe their must be a setting in Windows 10 that doesn't allow outside sysex messages, but I can't find it and microsoft help is non existent.

Anybody here got any ideas, I would love to have this program work on my newer computer also.

Thanks- Rewind

rewind,

I don't understand this comment. Are you saying that someone from PG Music suggested that you upgrade from PT 2011 to 2014 and that it cost you $150 to do that?

If that's the case, it seems unusual since the whole program is $50 new (without an upgrade).

In relation to Windows 10, try these couple of settings and see if they help...

1. Right-click your startup icon.

2. Select "Properties".

3. Under the "Compatibility" tab, set the 'Compatibility Mode' so that the programs runs compatible with Windows XP (service pack 2 or 3).

4. Also under the "Compatibility" tab, activate the option "Run this program as an administrator".

These setting might work.

Let us know how you go.

Regards,
Noel

Thank you for your response. You are right about price, I also purchased some add on's. Your suggestions didn't work but I noticed Windows 10 wasn't listed in compatible programs. I also have same program on older computer using windows p pro andit works perfect. I have narrowed problem down to the fact that the only midi programs that crash the program have sysex messages in them. If the program doesn't have any sysex messages then it works. Are you aware of any changes I can make in Windows 10 to allow outside sysex messages to be received? Sent question to microsoft and never got an answer. thanks for any suggestions.

What specific synth/hardware are you driving that you require SysEx in your MIDI files?

Does that synth work otherwise with your Win10 configuration?

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
