What bugs did you encounter? Who recommended a reinstall?

If you're thinking about Command Center, you're probably using some version of SONAR. Which version?

You've come to this forum so inevitably we'll suggest that you give Cakewalk By Bandlab a try, because in everything but name and bundled plugins it is SONAR 2020.

DON'T UNINSTALL YOUR OLD SONAR!!

An uninstaller will delete the .vst files you will want to preserve because CbB ships with a minimal amount of .VSTs.

Start by Going to https://bandlab.com

Sign up, get an acount.

Install Bandlab assistant from the Download Page.

Once it is installed, Open it and log in. Tab on right is for Apps.  Link to Download CbB is at the bottom. Click it.

It's a big chunk o' data, so it may take a while to pull down the full installer depending on your location and bandwidth.

After that, it is just a "Follow the prompts" install.  A lot like being married, just agree with everything it asks you  (Unless you have a custom location for any of the associated files)

Thanks, I have a bandlab account and Cakewalk by bandlab installed. I tried system restore and it seemed to work until this morning when I got the  error again.

When I try to launch Cakewalk I get this:  "Cakewalk Application has stopped working"

"A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available"

If I hit "open" on the bandlab assistant, I get this: "ACCESS ERROR" "Bandland Assistant can not open C:\Cakewalk Core\Cakewalk exe. Try to run app as administrator

If I try to access my Cakewalk projects through my D drive, I get this: "D\Cakewalk Projects is not available" The request could not be performed because if an I/O device error
