    Hi Carlos,

    please note that Bandstand was discontinued almost 10 years ago and is not supported on Windows 7 and higher.

    That means it was discontinued even before 64-bit Operating Systems were supported by Native Instruments.
    64-bit Windows editions still support using 32-bit applications and therefore they feature a 32-bit part in the so called Windows Registry.
    As the "old" installation routine is not aware of this specific 32-bit part of the Windows Registry, necessary Registry entries for Bandstand don't get written. This causes the problem that Service Center/Native Access displays Bandstand as activated while the application itself starts in demo mode


    You might need to manually copy the Registry entries required for Bandstand.

    This is the one that was written by the installer and Service Center(/Native Access)

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Native Instruments\Bandstand]
    "SNO"="xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx"
    "SYSTEMID"="K14NCJBRY1742N0608P1350Y4KJE72A8"
    "KEY"="XAT77SWBCBLYLPL71JNYH1WJY1FKU1WNXP372SHYCZ81K"


    And this is the location it is additionaly required to be:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\wow6432node\Native Instruments\Bandstand]


    And in there you then can create three required string values (REG_SZ) :



    and enter the following info for them:

    Value name: SNO   Value data: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

    Value name: SYSTEMID   Value data: K14NCJBRY1742N0608P1350Y4KJE72A8

    Value name: KEY   Value data: XAT77SWBCBLYLPL71JNYH1WJY1FKU1WNXP372SHYCZ81K


    That should fix the issue.

    best

    Here I am again checking if this software is available in some link for download, I still have the license active but unfortunately the media has become defective and I have noticed that new software as Konkat and Reaktor is allowed to be re-download however not working with Bandstand, is there a legacy download link to recover Bandstand, I love its simplicity and that is close to original midi set of instruments. Please let me know

     

    Regards,
