Mike G,

Good observation. I couldn't find the PG Music DX effects either. Thanks for bringing it up.

I seem to see them ..
I remember this happened previously in an earlier release a few years back, but I seem to have them here.

Did you guys uncheck a box during install?

You can find the installer here: C:\bb\Data\Installers\pgdx_plug_64bit_2_0_0.exe

Try closing RealBand and running this installer. It already should have been installed by default though...
Are you running RealBand64.exe?

I'm running RB64 on my D drive. I have the installers exe file above on C drive and on D drive. I ran both - and from my USB3.0 drive.
I can see the effects at C:\Program Files\PowerTracks DirectX Plugins but I don't have any presets.
Help,
Mike

All I can think of is, did you close RB and BB before running the installer?
It seemed to work for Jim (above)

You could run a downloaded Band-in-a-Box 2022 program installer, and it will give you the Jan 2021 dated DX installer. Maybe you have an older BB Hard drive there. Or, if it's a new BB hard drive you can find the file on the hard drive in the same location.

The file on the BB hard drive is dated:
21/4/2019 (created)
1/12/2019 (modified)
How do I get and run a downloaded Band-in-a-Box 2022 program installer?

Maybe go to the main PGMusic site and check your account for a newer install file?

I didn't get the hard drive this year, and went with the download option instead, so I can't really check much farther than that, but my installer in C:/bb/data/installers/pgdx_plug_64bit_2_0_0.exe is dated a couple years later, which would make sense due to the switch from 32 to 64 bit
I'm just guessing that you need the latest install.

Are you sure you are looking at the 64 bit and not the 32 bit installer?
(the newer 64 bit has that notated in the name)

pgdx_plug_64bit_2_0_0.exe
vs
pgdx_plug_2_0_0.exe
(note the 64bit part in the file name)

Things changed from 2019 to 2022

This would be the main Band-in-a-Box installer in your order (from your product download page) - e.g. bandinabox_realband.exe

Thanks Andrew (and Rharv), I figured it out before your last message Andrew. It's a wonder you didn't hear me cheering from here.
All effects and presets are right where they should be.
It is a bit disappointing, though, that I wasted many hours trying to solve a problem that was caused because I was sent a USB drive that contained an out of date installer.
Anyway, I'm happy now.
Thanks everyone who tried to help. The PG Forum is a great community.
Mike
