Following a total hard drive crash, I now have Win10 on a brand new hard drive.
I have done a full download and install (all 110gb+ of it) and so far it works OK
BUT - my WIn7 BB had a paid for (from PG) Coyote Forte Dxi. I cant find it in my 'Account' so where is it, how do I get my key code again and most importantly HOW DO I INSTALL AND SET IT UP??
Might seem ridiculous seeing as how I've used BB for years but it was many years ago since I did it in the first place.

I read in another post that your computer blew up. It is frustrating and difficult to get back up and running. I feel for what you're going through.

You will need to contact PG Music Sales about retrieving the Coyote Forte DXI file. PG Music Sales should be able to verify the purchase and provide a download link on your online account.

Notice the warning PG Music placed on the +++ Coyote Forte DXI Webpage +++
Quote:
Note: The Coyote Forte DXi is only compatible with 32-bit hosts. Therefore it will work with the 32-bit version of Band-in-a-Box, but not the 64-bit version.

You could switch to Halion Sonic SE, IMO 'better' anyway ... free and 64bit to boot.

You would just download the demo from that page, and you use your forte serial number to convert the demo to the full version. You can contact us via Live chat and we can look up your number

This will not solve your current issue this is just for future reference:

And this is not meant to to arm chair quarterback but I keep a spreadsheet with title, the SERIAL NUMBER, and any additional authorization codes, iLok info , etc. as well as date purchased, price paid, where bought, etc. I keep that spreadsheet of titles & SN's in lots of places not just one internal drive - LOL (it easily fits on even a tiny thumb drive or SD card.)


FWIW on that "serial number" spreadsheet I also keep a copy of all all household items, firearms, music gear, etc. most anything with a high cost or a serial number - each similar collection of "thing" household items, music gear, firearms, ...are on separate spreadsheet tabs.

EDIT

PS I also agree with Fiddler2007 - you'll like the Halion SE GM sounds much better than Forte Coyote DXi

Jim right, I forgot, Since I have full Halion (as well) the missing sounds are kind of moot and again I forget.

see this thread to get FREE Steinberg Halion GM bank (usable in SE). Yes, its a little hoop jumping, but as a bonus maybe getting a free free notation program as well is appealing?

https://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=577979&Searchpage=1&Main=81335&Words=Halion&Search=true#Post577979

However, there are a few folks here that are always suggestion Halion Sonic SE.

Those folks might have an easier way to get the Halion GM bank??

Larry I completely understand. It's an easy mistake to make, particularly when you've grown accustomed to having a tool available. Except for the caution box the webpage does not give any other hint that the sound module does not include any patches.

The program stability is vastly improved, with fewer possible crashes, BeStPlain chord font support has been added for additional chords, mid/xml/mxl file import has been tweaked to better handle certain cases (e.g. ties, zero duration drum notes), there is improved the stability of the audio chord wizard, and more.

Plus, hundreds of RealTracks files have been enhanced and improved with simpler options for RealTracks and MIDI SuperTracks, smoother transitions, updated RealCharts and Hi-Q RealCharts, improved transcriptions, and revised endings! Check out the full list of RealTracks and other Add-on improvements with build 715 here.

We didn't stop there – the VST DAW Plugin is also updated with this patch, adding TONS of enhancements and a new Shortcuts file feature! Now you can easily zoom within the Plugin, smoothly drag tracks, use the P hotkey to toggle between part markers, transpose chords to "natural accidentals," the scrolling has been improved, and more!

New with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 - MultiRiffs!

This feature was initially offered with the VST DAW Plugin, and now it's available directly in Band-in-a-Box®! MultiRiffs allows you to quickly generate 7 variations of either a portion of the track (which would generate 7 variations of "Riffs" of a four-bar guitar solo), or the whole song with 7 variations that are generated to play different material at all times.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:
-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
-You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Read more about this new feature here, or watch the video.
