big thanks to Angelo from italy for giving a disc image of opcode SVP3.5 from 1997 - hopefully someone with 3.0 cd installer can also step forward so we can make those available at http://www.oldschooldaw.com/opcode

CAKEWALK DOS 5.0 "LIVE" search
« on: April 13, 2017, 02:04:40 PM »
  8)  Hello all,   I'm in search of the installer software for CAKEWALK DOS 5.0 "LIVE".  See photo of it installed on a friend's laptop taken yesterday.  It is here installed on an old IBM Thinkpad running Windows 98 SE.  Would appreciate your help in finding the installer for CAKEWALK DOS 5.0 "LIVE".   Thanks in advance.

Regards

so wait - your friend has an installed copy but has lost his install disk for the application?
if so you might try contacting cakewalk they are still in business? long shot but might work?

so basically this app turns a number of midi files into a complete segment for live playback performance?
was it packaged with the original cakewalk 5.0 for DOS? or a completely seperately purchased product?

Yes, the install disk is lost and it appears to be a separate install. Here's a photo of the PC's desktop, will also ask him to check Cakewalk about it.

is there any chance that it came bundled with Cakewalk Pro Audio 9??
actualy that doesnt make sense given the date on the screen (1987-1990?)

Getting a contact number for him would be great, maybe someone will throw in that info.

After downloading * CW5PRO.zip (591.55 kB )  and unzipping it, how do l prepare it for installation in Windows 98 SE correctly ?  I gave it a try, got as far as it showing that the installation was completed, but it was no where to be found after that.  Need all the help l can get, thanks much.

so..
am i right in assuming from your limited response that the LIVE! utility is an extra command line application that is part of the Cakewalk 5.0 for DOS install package
correct?

You are correct, it is within Cakewalk DOS 5.0 ..... after finally getting Cakewalk DOS 5.0 installed I clicked on
Start > Find....typed in Cakewalk Live, which took me to where a bunch of Cakewalk stuff was....I then scrolled down until l found Cakewalk Live...double clicked on it....it opened stating l would need an interface but
l chose to continue without it.  Afterward l dragged the Cakewalk Live icon to desktop, which created a shortcut.
  I'm almost sure there's a better way to get this happening, but l'll leave that to you Pros.

Regards
