Hello, forum. I bought Garritan Personal Orchestra about 3 years ago. So, you'll understand, I have a rather "old" version (given the more recent GPO 4). It still needs Garritan Studio to run as a plugin for Notation Composer (originally named MidiNotate Composer).
I'd been running it perfectly well on Windows Vista, until I recently upgraded to a new PC (which is Windows 7).
The point is, I've been trying to install GPO with the original DVD that I bought.
The first problem is that it asks me for registration/activation (so I can get the Authentication Key), and there's no way I can do that (it redirects me to the Native Instruments site, and it's impossible to register it there, it seems to be out of date). So I try the authentication key I had got before (the very first time I installed GPO, on Vista), and it turns out to be invalid.
So, I decided to go on skipping this (using the 30 day-free mode that was my only option), and copied the Garritan Studio files from the old PC to the new (along with some DLL extensions), but when I try to open it, it displays, either a 0cx00000124 error (I think it's something like that), or another kind of error messages; I cannot possibly open it! I searched the web so I could download it, and I didn't find any "official" sites; and when I found it elsewhere, I think the file is corrupted or something, because now I get "Major Application fault", and it closes.
Thank you in advance; I would really appreciate any help on these two issues... 'cause now I can't use Garritan at all! Maybe a website to download a proper Garritan Studio, and a way to activate GPO...
