Question about Sibelius 5 Professional Edition

1 Answer

Sibelius 5 keeps shutting down when I save

I have Windows Vista Home Basic. Now for a good while Sibelius ran fine on it, but recently it started shutting down the moment I tried to save anything. Here's the important stuff:

1) I've tried all the methonds I know how including shortcut keys, file/save, file/save as etc. Nothing seems to work.

2) I get no notification of errors of any kind.

3) Everything else works fine, I can open and play files, but it just plain won't let me save anything.

4) I've checked the sibelius website and removed all the potentially conflicting programmes and reinstalled everything.

5) I've also downloaded the vista compatibility fix from the sibelius website and it didn't make a difference.

Try a system restore point prior to the date you started experiencing issues and see if the registry repair does the trick. If your Vista software has a repair facility, use it. Otherwise it is an OS issue and you may have to reload the machine from scratch using the recovery software that came with it. No software? - if so, in deep doo doo.

Errors on install of sibelius:

Luckily, there is a installation assistant that solves this problem! You can visit the help page here, there you can download an install assistant. Once downloaded simply run it and follow the on screen instructions.

Errors on start up of Sibelius:

If you have AVG antivirus, Google Desktop or Adobe acrobat pro installed. Then you can experience start up problems when opening sibelius.

I found that if you download updates for all three programs (or just the ones you have). Then sibelius will start up properly.

I had this problem on an Acer laptop -

I just uninstalled google desktop as i did not need it and updated avg.

Installation problem with Sibelius 5 on Vista


You don't say what the nature of the installation problem is, but you should make sure you are logged into your computer as an Administrator user. You could also try clicking the 'Browse this disc' button in the menu that appears when you insert the DVD-ROM, go into the Windows/Sibelius folder and right-click SibeliusEnglishInstaller.msi in order to choose 'Run as Administrator'.

If you are still having problems, contact Sibelius technical support using the email address and phone numbers provided in the 'Latest information and technical help' sheet in your Sibelius 5 box.
