Bundled instruments install?

Question

This is probably a dumb question. I recently installed CbB on my new machine. Everything is fine, but a bunch of the free instruments didn't install. The only one I'm seeing is the SI stuff, but no True Pianos, for example.  What did I do wrong, and how do I get those on there now?

Thanks,  so the optional plug ins are not installed by default, but the text says "Note: The core Cakewalk installer does not include all available plug-ins. If the plug-ins listed in this section are not available in Cakewalk, please download and install the optional plug-ins via BandLab Assistant (see BandLab Assistant)."

But where in BandLab Assistant do you go to install the optional plug ins? I'm not seeing it anywhere.

@scook So what you are saying, or not saying really, is that those other plug ins that used to come with Cakewalk no longer do? Hard to tell since you so enjoy speaking in links and images. I'm not an idiot, I found that.

The plug-ins bundled with CbB are detailed in the first link. That's it. If you want something from old Cakewalk products you will need to install the old Cakewalk products. The subject has been discussed several times - here is a typical example

Its better to have links then no help at all.

i have found Scook to be one of the more intelligent and helpful members on this forum. I would be grateful for the advise.

With an attitude like that to people who are trying to help you don't be surprised if the friendly people here think twice before providing assistance.
I have found everyone here patient and understanding even when I have asked what in other places may have been thought of as 'stupid' questions. There are no such questions here just the occasional ungrateful and thoughtless response from those who do not appreciate people taking time out to help

Try again - we don't hold grudges 🙂

Well, now I feel bad. Sorry @scook, it's stressful setting this stuff up. 

What I've discovered was closer to "CbB does not come with all the same plug-ins that Sonar did, unfortunately. However, you should be able to get the plug-ins from your old installation of Sonar and install them that way."

Hello Jkoseattle, did you ever find a solution?

I recently downloaded Cakewalk also and am having the same issue where none of the native instruments appear. 

I've checked to ensure they downloaded from bandlab, and have searched google, the FAQ here, and scrolled through a bunch of the forum to no avail. 

I've also tried uninstalling the reinstalling Cakewalk twice.
