No it does not. You failed to actually give the specific folders too.

The code already is there, vst cross platform is not the hard to do.


My understanding is that the Sonitus suite is legacy code, bound to the Windows API, that Cakewalk didn't own and stopped having maintained by the original developer/owner. It was already abandoned legacy by Sonar 8.5. This is the case with a lot of content in Sonar...

Damn. Haven't used cakewalk in years, but that's what I used when I started out last millennium. Sad to see an "old buddy" go down..

It would be at least a small show of respect for those who spent
hard-earned money, and many hundreds man-hours learning
and using your products. I for one love Dimension Pro, Rapture, and z3ta+,
no need to leave the code in a dumpster somewhere.


Trouble is the code is their intellectual property so they see it as a potential asset. They won't give it away where someone else (potential competitor?) could make money off of it rather than them.

I am surprised that when things like this happen, some pissed-off programmer has never just dumped the code somewhere on the net, maybe even an unprotected build.



cause most likely they would go to jail and/or be sued into bankruptcy.

No it does not. You failed to actually give the specific folders too.


You do realize that when you make changes to the registry - you have to re-boot in order for them to take effect?

In Windows, the registry is loaded into memory. When you change something, it does not get picked up most of the time until you shut down and re-start the infernal box.

Then try adding the key above the Wow6432Node in just HKey_Local_Machine/Cakewalk Music Software

Get to know the registry, and it will be a friend to you.

No, registry changes are available to the system as soon as they are made. however, most applications will only read the registry once, usually on startup, so to make them see any changes they will have to be restarted. This is easy enough with desktop applications but services (such as PACE) need to be restarted either via the services manager or a system reboot.

Thanks, Cakewalk. Z3ta will always be a classic. I have 1 and 2 (and Rapture too).

I don't get it. I just logged into my account at Cakewalk to get the installers and serials, etc, for Z3TA+2 and some other stuff I have. I thought it might be a good idea to keep these installers and serials safe. There is not a single word anywhere at Cakewalk website about closing down. Nothing!
