Mixcraft 8 users: check for updates to get build 407!

Postby Acoustica Greg » Wed Sep 13, 2017 2:30 pm

Hello all,

Mixcraft version 8.1 build 407 has now been released. It's got a bunch of good bug fixes.

Choose "Check For Updates" from Mixcraft's help menu, then quit Mixcraft as the patch downloads in order to install it.

My update install failed. Sorry, I didn't screenprint the error message, but it started with "could not install." But now my file "C:\Program Files\Acoustica Mixcraft 8 Pro Studio\mixcraft8.exe" is missing, although the folder is still there. This happened with a previous update also. Yes, I closed Mixcraft after the update download started.

Strange. Anyway, I don't know where the downloaded update file is (it's not in my download folder) so I'll just do a reinstall I guess. Just thought I'd share my experience since it happened once before.

Hi,

This is often due to anti-virus software being suspicious about a program downloading files. You might need to temporarily disable your anti-virus software to use the patching.

In your current predicament, you can just download Mixcraft from the link in your registration email, or log into your Acoustica Customer Center account and download from there.

Thanks, Greg, no problem, the reinstall was painless.

Don't use AV though. I don't doubt it's on my end. Thanks to all for their hard work on the update! I do appreciate the frequent updates which y'all have been rolling out. Hope somebody enjoys a well deserved end of summer vacation...

Hi,

The patch is working for us here, so there must be some other factor involved. Firewall, maybe? At any rate, thanks for letting us know that you got the problem squared away.
