Cakewalk Installation is stuck .. Need Help Please.

Question

Hello All,

I previously had CBL installed from Jan 2021 on my desktop..without issue.  My secondary hard drive died (where my "VST" files were located) and had a replacement and changed it changed the drive letter from "D:" to now "F:"  

When I tried to update the Cakewalk software, it keeps asking during the install process to put the "VST" folder in the old "D:" location and will not give me the opportunity to select a different location.   Both the location and the "BROWSE" button are ghosted gray and I cannot find away to select a different location.  The only option is to cancel the upgrade and I am stuck.

Then I read , to uninstall CBL and try a fresh install from Bandlab Assistant.   I did but I am, same issue on new install of CBL.   Next I tried uninstall again but added removing all the adds component software (drum replacer, software suite, etc).  That went well except for the MELODYNE RUNTIME  component will not UNINSTALL.     I get a warning that the Administrator is blocking the removal of the Melodyne Runtime.     So I try to run the CBL installer a 3rd time and still am stuck at the same VST FOLDER point.

What can I do to get past this point and get the  CAKEWALK installed again.  I am out of ideas.

Computer  Specs:

Windows 10 / ASUS ROG Strix B450-F Gaming Motherboard (ATX) /  Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 Desktop Memory /  500GB Solid State (Drive C) /  1TB 7200rpm HD (Drive E) /  Additional  Plug & Play  2-Bay Drive Docking station(  extra storage from old drives ).

Thanks in advance.

Is there any compelling reason you changed the driver letter from D to F.

Personally, I would change your driv letter to back to D as there are probably lots of processes and application that expect a D drive to be present.

Thank you @Promidi.    The previous D drive crashed and I had it replace with a new 1TB internal hard drive.  The replacement  was labeled Drive " E" when I got the computer back.   I do have room in the computer case to install another empty 500GB HD i have from a previous computer.  I will attempt to install it and label it with the Drive letter D with also folders CBL is looking for already established.

 I still don't understand why removing the old CBL (using the Windows uninstaller ) & install a fresh copy of CBL from the Bandlab Assistant did not correct this issue,.

Thanks again and will see if that works..  Will post an update soon.

Like most Windows uninstallers, registry entries and user files are not removed.

The clean install instructions are here

@scook  Thanks for this lead.  Gonna try the above suggestion "PROMIDI" gave me to rename the hard drive when I get home later tonight.   If that fails I will attempt the clean install you suggest.  I am  hesitant to bother the registry, but if need be.. I am committed.   I really appreciate your input.

[SOLVED]

Changing the Drive letter solved the issue and I was able to successfully get the CBL reloaded on the computer with the updated version.   Thanks so much  "Promidi" &  "scook".  I was at a dead  end until your  assistance gave me hope  and I am back in business again.
