Instaling GA3 to Win7 64-bit

Postby thejjlmusic » Mon Jan 30, 2012 6:21 pm

Could someone help me installing Groove Agent 3 to win7 64-bit PC. I have GA1-cd and upgrade from GA1 to GA 3. I have GA3 licence in Syncrosoft.

If I try to install GA1: "please install GA from the original cd-rom"
If I try to install GA3 uppgrade: "can't find GA1"

What to do? I know that installation should be bossible because I have done it to another Win 7 64-bit computer, but I can't remember how.

It's been a while since I performed this action, but if I recall correctly I simply copied the installation CD directly to a folder on my HD and initiated the install from there.

Hi... I am having a similar problem, i.e. when I try to install GrooveAgent (original version) from original CDROM on Windows 7 on Bootcamp partition on MacBook Pro, it goes through half the process and then says, "Please install from original CDROM." Nothing I do seems to make any difference.

Can somebody here please help me with this? Steinberg person perhaps? Thanks! :-)

If you have a dual layer dvd drive, try using an external cd drive or older dvd drive. I found that worked perfect.
Although, when I tried to install Groove agent 2 starts fine, but then tells me that the program did not install correctly becuase there are other processes currently running. I had the same problem with virtual guitartist and the elctric edition. Althought there, both the update and the version one installed properly. Go figure!
