New Cakewalk web installer

Recommended Posts

Sorry, I don't understand why the web installer/updater should be a replacement of BL Assistant. 

BA was primarily designed in Singapore for BandLab, the web-based DAW.

It was pressed into service as a CbB install/updater in order to have something on day one.

The new installer is being developed by the CbB team.

The new installer is primarily for new installs although it will update too.

Users with CbB 2020.09 and newer installed should use the in-app update process.

As I had the same problems with BLA to update CbB as others mentioned above, I gave this new updater a try. But my first attempt failed! Although the install ran without trouble, running CbB I got the following message:

20210924-Install-Error.png.0b8b696dae8addb7c97b86158a4d6a1f.png

Re-downloading the installer and trying again did not work either! Thus I rolled CbB back to 2021-04 and gave the installer another chance, this time with SUCCESS! 👍 (it loaded down the full CbB installer).

Looking at the first, failed installation try (I had renamed the folder to keep it) I suspect the installer had only downloaded the CbB update installer, although I had renamed the 'Cakewalk Core' folder to force a download of the full installer (for my offline system). This seems not to work (as with BLA)!

Though I like this new installer, I have some small improvement proposals:

  • It would be cool if we could define the download location
  • For those having offline systems it would be helpful if a full download could be forced (check box or other button)
  • ... and the local installation could be skipped somehow (check box or button)

Hi Folks,

We're working on a new web installer for Cakewalk and add/ons. This will be a replacement for installation via BandLab assistant.
This is a simple tool that downloads and runs the latest version of Cakewalk on your PC.

Please download and try this installer and let us know in this thread if you encounter any problems. Note that if you are already on the latest version it will not update it.

Note: If you already have cakewalk installed you can update directly from within the application by choosing Help | Check for Updates

 

EDIT: Link updated to Downloader version 1.0.0.26.

Great new downloader
When I use Bandalab downloader, due to frequent packets, due to the existence of filtering servers in my country, with the slightest problem and the smallest packet, the download process took days and was inconclusive, because Bandalab Assistant was not able to continue the download. I had to go through the download process several times to get the desired result, but now with your new downloader, the download was done without any problems in the first time of use. Thankful .

Are you saying we need to uninstall CW and run this new installer? I see your "Note", but "Check for updates" tells me "You have the latest update" and SI-Drum Kit IS installed but it just won't play. Thanks for your help.

Not that it affects me personally. I even had a decent experience with BA while I sweated recently.

 

...but

 

When is this app going official? It seems a long time of EA and still no release?

I'm good with that!

 

...I was surprised when doing a new install (remotely) for a friend, I couldn't find this installer, only BA. EA for this was so long ago I just believed it must be available by now...
