OK, tried using the BB today for the first time: got it a couple of weeks ago, but have been away. Not too many problems running/navigating around/playing the standard sets of beats on the BB itself: no problems with the BB footswitch either. So far, so good.
However, I now have two problems which may or may not be associated. i remember reading somewhere that, as well as all the standard sets of beats already installed on the BB, there are around 200 songs also.
I cannot for the life of me work out where those songs are on the BB!
I eventually concluded that I might need to download the BB manager from the BB website. Which I have.
However, it will not install: it gets part way along then declares:
“The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package.
This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2716”
I’ve been through your help FAQ’s and the only thing i can find is that the basic requirement for BB manager is Windows Vista, plus xmB hard space, etc. No mocking please, but the laptop I use for this and other minor tasks runs on Windows XP: a requirement I don’t remember reading about in the sales literature. Does code 2716 indicate that this is the issue? If this is the case, it seems like I can’t do much until I get a new, updated laptop. Is this a fair assumption?
Second question: does one need to have BB manager installed in order to access the standard selection of songs included with BB or are they on and accessible without the BB manager?
If the answers are ‘Yes’ and ‘Yes’, I’m somewhat scuppered until I can afford a new machine…
