How to "Roll back" to a prior version of Cakewalk


Recommended Posts

In every release of Cakewalk by BandLab we include a link to "Rollback installer" along with its product release notes.
All historic product release information can be found here with links to the corresponding rollback installers.

If you encounter a problem after a new release, you can try and rule out whether the problem is specific to that release by using a rollback installer. Running a rollback installer will revert the installed version to the last publicly released version before the installed version of Cakewalk you are running.

NOTES

  • Please note that the rollback installers are specific to each release. i.e. you cannot use a rollback installer downloaded for an earlier release on the latest release because it will fail to run.
  • If you need to, you can also go back to past versions by downloading and running rollback installers in succession.
  • To get back to the latest release after running a rollback installer go to Help | check for updates and reinstall the latest update. 

PS: We only support the most current version of the application. Since Cakewalk is always evolving, older versions may contain bugs and certain features may not function  properly due to back end changes. Always work with the most current version of the application and directly report any problems to Cakewalk should you find any.

Where is the information on rolling back from the current version release of Version 2022 11 Build 21 64bit? I am having major audio drop out issues and nothing is fixing it and its only since the version upgrade.

Any help would be appreciated.

The forum has a search feature.  Consecutive words need to be placed in quotation marks.  Try "Rollback installer" in the forum search bar.  

For example, the search included this:

I have been having a consistent crash problem with a plugin. It worked well on the previous version. From what I read here does it mean that I need to uninstall the current version first and then install the previous version?

Your best option may be to remove the offending plugin and find an alternative workaround. 

In case you have not been frequently reading this forum, the latest and final version of CbB is currently 2023.09 build 75.

Very shortly everything prior to 2023.09 build 64 will not be able to authorize.

And eventually CbB as we know it will be End Of Life and time out.

The heir apparent will be a paid version named Sonar.

When you say "time out" does that mean that the software will completely quit working in any capacity?

Yes, according to the inference from the Bakers, although the actual term limit is yet to be determined. 

Best guess is 6 months from release of the new retail Sonar...
