plus tôt dans la journée, je vous ai exposé un problème rencontré lors de ma tentative

d'association de fichiers SGU avec Band-in-a-Box.

J'avais suivi la méthode du menu d'aide, qui est aussi celle que suggéra AudioTracks,

en vain: le pop-up attendu indiquait que l'association était faite, mais il n'en était rien.

Quelqu'un d'autre m'a répondu mais son post ayant subitement disparu,

j'en ignore le contenu!

J'ai donc suivi un autre chemin, et il m'a parfaitement mené où je voulais!

Si cela peut être utile à quelqu'un, le voici:

important: avant de commencer quoi que ce soit, veiller à ce que le la case

"toujours ouvrir etc...", reste cochée

- J'ai double-cliqué sur un de mes morceaux

- comme attendu, Windows m'a affiché sa proposition classique de chercher l'application

pour l'ouvrir dans une liste.

- Comme Band-in-a-Box n'apparaissait pas dans cette liste, j'ai prêté attention

à une phrase, en bas de la fenêtre, qui dit :"trouver plus d'applications sur ce PC"

- en passant par ce menu, j'ai accédé au dossier intitulé "Bb", qui est le dossier

qui se crée lors de l'installation de Band-in-a-Box, et qui contient tout ce qui est

nécessaire à son fonctionnement

- tout en bas de la liste de ces éléments, j'ai choisi celui qui s'appelle "bbw64",

puisque mon ordi est en 64 bits.

- et voilà, le tour est joué, l'association est faite, tout est rentré dans l'ordre!

- j'ajoute que Band-in-a-Box apparaît maintenant dans la liste des applications

en vous remerciant de vos efforts, je souhaite vraiment que ceci puisse aider

un utilisateur embarrassé par le même problème que moi!

Thank you for posting your solution.

Some further information that may be beneficial:

There are a few ways to associate file types with Band-in-a-Box. Here are two:

A) You can use the menu item in Band-in-a-Box "File | File Utilities | Associate File types". HOWEVER, you need to be running BIAB as an administrator because it requires changes to the registry. Right-click on bbw64.exe in Explorer and select "Run as admin". Then select the menu option above and it will work.

B) C:\bb\Data\Installers\bbfileassoc.exe
Run this small installer. HOWEVER, some versions have a bug with the latest versions of Windows - download and use this one. I should be dated November 2022 or later.

Either of these methods should register ALL the different BIAB file types, .MGU, .SGU, .MGX, etc.

Merci d'avoir posté votre solution.

Quelques informations complémentaires qui peuvent être utiles :

Il existe plusieurs façons d'associer des types de fichiers à Band-in-a-Box. En voici deux :

A) Vous pouvez utiliser l'élément de menu dans Band-in-a-Box "Fichier | Utilitaires de fichiers | Types de fichiers associés". CEPENDANT, vous devez exécuter BIAB en tant qu'administrateur car cela nécessite des modifications du registre. Faites un clic droit sur bbw64.exe dans l'explorateur et sélectionnez "Exécuter en tant qu'administrateur". Sélectionnez ensuite l'option de menu ci-dessus et cela fonctionnera.

B) C:\bb\Data\Installers\bbfileassoc.exe
Exécutez ce petit programme d'installation. CEPENDANT, certaines versions ont un bogue avec les dernières versions de Windows - téléchargez et utilisez celle-ci. Je devrais être daté de novembre 2023 ou plus tard.

L'une ou l'autre de ces méthodes doit enregistrer TOUS les différents types de fichiers BIAB, .MGU, .SGU, .MGX, etc.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
