Hello to all forumers!
Little issue when trying to install RealTracks here: software won't let me install them on a separate SSD drive (I'm trying to save space on the laptop). I get a message saying that they can be installed only on the disk that is running OS X.....

Many thanks to all!!
PS: I'd post an image showing the message I get when trying to install but can't find the option to copy/paste image from my laptop....

Install it where you can then just move the RealTracks and Drums folders to the SSD then set the new locations in RealTracks Prefs and RealDrums Prefs. If you are installing from a usb drive just select the option to use RealTracks from USB drive, then copy the 2 folders to the SSD.

Shift-Command-4 saves screen shot to desktop.

Cool!!!
Thanks for the tip!

One moment... I get the first advice about installation method. That's cool.

Concerning the "set the new locations in RealTracks Prefs and RealDrums Prefs"
Where exactly do I go to do that?
+
"If you are installing from a use drive just select the option to use RealTracks from USB drive, then copy the 2 folders to the SSD."
.....??

Thanks again!
S.

Click on the RealTracks icon > Prefs
Click on the RealDrums icon > Prefs

You should have a similar installer as the Win one below, select the 2nd option.

Fat chance....not working!
...I know about Shift-Command-4, but when I try to post the image on the forum it only gives me the option to insert from a url, not from my laptop...

Basically I have a very large number of "N/A....etc"' RealTracks that I can listen to with the "preview" kind of button but when I point BAIB to them don't actually "come up" at all.
Here's the message I get: "42 RealTracks have r*.st2 files in the BB Soloist folder, but no RealTracks in the folder /Volumes..../Applications/Band-in-a-Box/RealTracks.Either install RealTracks again, or point......"
BUT they ARE there!

To attach pic click the File Manager under the posting section.
Move the RealTracks and Drums folders to the SSD then click Rebuild button in the RealTrack and RealDrums Pickers.

Ok,
So I finally had some free time and ..managed!
BUT...: I have a very large number of styles that are shown as RT N/A (example: Style Picker + Clapton + Change the World = (RT n/a when trying to apply the "CHANGE" style.
If I select "Open style from disk" CHANGE.sty IS there! I select it and get message in yellow box saying I don't have real tracks and drums for this style!!!
How do I get them?

Similar problem when trying to rebuild RealTracks. I get this long message saying basically: 95RealTracks have r*.st2 files in the BB Soloist fold but no RealTracks in (SSD) Either install RealTracks again or point..etc

What do I do?
It's driving me nuts (excuse my french)!

Thanks again!
I actually have the latest update

But...., something funny (by the way, I installed from usb): I had BIAB installed on laptop, no latest update.
Everything was fine.
Installed on external drive and copied the EXACT same folders/files I had on laptop + UPDATE. And some styles I was using (one which was a funky latin Santana sort of style) would not come up on the new install with the update.
So I reinstalled the same version I had on laptop (no updates). Now I get the funky/latin etc style but NOT the CHANGE (and others).....
....maddening!
Just checked: the folder you mention (Bass, Electric, Soul70sA-B Ev16 100 is in fact in RT folder, but I had to find it using a little OS X App called Easyfind, because if I open the actual RT folder mentioned I only see a series of BS ones...)
What's going on?.....

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.
