  1. Tonight I saw there was an additional update and installed. This was the first time I have been prompted to log in tp Bandlab internally to Cakewalk. So essentially, we'll be connected to Bandlab whenever we're using Cakewalk, and that's a good thing. Studio One works much the same way. So if I understand this correctly, I could uninstall Bandlab assistant if I wanted to? Last question, someone mentioned that this started back last November, but I just now had my first instance of being asked to log in? just wondering if I missed something? (Yes, read the damn release notes!!! 😀)
  2. Most times anymore I get notification through CbB when I run it. Since just before it became not cool to copy and rename folders, I have not spent as much time on the forum. I was unaware of the fact things had changed. Not trying to make excuses, but I find myself logging in here when I run into issues, and not so much other times. I'll make to effort to be visiting a bit more often...
  3. Before updating, go to C:\Program Files\Cakewalk, and copy Cakewalk Core to a location of your choosing. Rename to Cakewalk Core Rev# (ie Cakewalk Core 2021.04). Then run the update. If need be, copy the renamed file back to C:\Program Files\Cakewalk, and you'll be running your old version. I do this for each update, and it's saved my @$$ more than once.
  4. Turn off the track outline function, new to 2021.4. From the View menu, select Display, and then toggle the Show Waveform Outlines option. It had me wondering initially as well...
  5. That sir, appears to be the ticket. Thank you very much. I appreciate the help immensely!!!
  6. This is the last one I tried to fix. I originally found it on a repository of Sonar Themes, as I recall. Thank you very much for doing this. Soft tones highlighted buttons.sth
  7. It only worked one time gmp, when I copied the core folder back to it's correct location, it blew up again and I cannot get it to fly a second time...
  8. Actually, strike that. When I reconfigured to run from my desktop icon, it blew up again. When I loaded it previously, it appeared to open correctly, without the Theme error. Once I copied the files back to the Cakewalk Core folder, it shit again. I'm done.
  9. Wow... that is the strangest behavior I have ever seen, but it worked sir, thanks so much for walking me through that process. I tried several renames that failed to work as expected, but this one did the trick and I am back in business. Many thanks for jumping in and sharing your results. Best Regards; Jackson
  10. Seriously Scook? I am a musician, somewhat well versed in IT, software and computer hardware, but my primary goal here is making music. I try to keep up with it all, but not surprisingly, sometimes things get past me. I set this up in 2017, and really have not gone back to re-address it since. It's worked fine for 5 years now, until this latest change. I am not a programmer, nor do I wish to be, but it seems more and more I am expected to understand all the intricacies of all the varies packages I'm using. I do fine for the most part, but I think I've earned the right to throw up my arms on occasion. I mean no disrespect, and your knowledge of the software has been a godsend on numerous occasions, but not all of us have the time or inclination to dig real deep into Cakewalk, or any of the other 10-15 packages I use. I messed around with Themes 5 years ago long enough to get something to work that I liked, and honestly do not understand all the ramifications the recent changes have wrought. Be patient with those of us looking to record our songs. This change came out of left field for me, and I have spent hours struggling to find a fix. I have days where this frustrates the hell out of me... Peace; Jackson
  11. Thank You gmp... When I do this, I still get the error or warning that it's an old theme, but I tell it I want to use it and it loads, and all appears to be well. I tried this several times with the same result. Instead of switching folders, I simply renamed it, thus retaining the original, but I get the error every time. So far this has cost me several hours in time spent debugging the latest fix, and it still isn't right. I should probably just give in and use the default, but I rather liked what I had and hoped I could work around this easily... not so, for some reason. I downloaded and installed the latest Theme editor yesterday, Time stamps on both edited files are today. One thing I noticed is the original file is slightly larger that the edited versions 3872kb for the original, 3865kb for both edited files. Not sure if that is a problem... I open the file in the editor, and tell it to save as... it really shouldn't be this difficult. Jackson Hawk
  12. I got the Waveform Outline issue resolved, thanks. As far as the theme issue, I opened the theme in the latest editor, applied a save as new name, attempted to select that theme, but still get the incompatibility error. I had thought that saving using the new editor would be what I needed to do, but apparently there's more that needs to happen? has anyone been able to get their current custom theme to work?
  13. Thanks for this information. I believe this is the waveform issue I was noticing... I'll try doing an edit/save later today and see if it helps with the errors and such...
  14. For the time being, I reverted back to 2021.01. As well as the theme not loading, I am having issues with the waves themselves looking different, too contrasty perhaps is a good description, and I really don't want to mess with this anymore right now. Question... if I open the theme in the editor, and manage to save it, will that fix the issue? Why in the name of God, did someone decide to mess with this?
  15. So it seems to have removed the theme I was using. More time now to spend fixing something that wasn't broken... nice...
