Back them up. Just in case. Or install to a different location. Even if they say the install is "safe" I would do this. I've been burned a few times by installers that blow out the old directory without warning. It's annoying enough to have to set up your preferences again but redoing a lot of work is not on the fun list.

So play it safe and copy them off to a temp directory. If you don't need them then it only took a minute to copy them. If it blows them out how long would it take to rebuild them???? ;-]

I need a sebelius 6 serial number urgent


Did you buy this software? You should have the serial number already unless you lost it.

Goto, A232 Serial number - how to determine your serial number
232: Serial number - how to determine your serial number In Sibelius 3 and later, your serial number appears at the bottom of the Help > About Sibelius dialog (in the Sibelius menu on Mac OS X).
Your Sibelius serial number is also printed on the back of the case that your original Sibelius CD-ROM came in. Don't lose this CD-ROM case, as without your serial number you will have problems reinstalling or re-registering Sibelius.
If you have lost your CD-ROM case and your serial number, contact technical support in writing and ask for their assistance. In the interests of security, you may be asked for proof of purchase and identity before you can be given your serial number.

The best bet may be to call the support number and have them check into it. The serial number may not have been properly reset on their end.

You could also try disconnecting from the Internet (unplug your network cable for example) when installing the software to see if that allows you to do so. It's a long shot, but a possibility.

Hi there, j_pfeffer.
Sadly, without an internet connection on the old computer, it will be impossible to unregister it through normal means. The way the process works is, when you choose the option to unregister your copy, the program contacts the Sibelius server and tells it that it's no longer registered to that specific computer. Without an internet connection, this simply cannot happen.
You can, however, contact Sibelius technical help and explain the situation. They'll likely ask for information that will prove that you actually paid for your copy, but they should be able to handle the unregistration from there.

Sibelius 5 keeps shutting down when I save


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.

I can't input quavers. Every note comes out as a crotchet.


Click Window -> Keypad

A keypad will appear on the lower right-hand side (by default). That should help you with your problem! :)

Installation problem with Sibelius 5 on Vista


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.

For a direct link to the assistant click here.

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.
