How to: Authorize Cakewalk by BandLab

BandLab Assistant is the exclusive source for installing and authorizing Cakewalk by BandLab.

  1. Launch BandLab Assistant
  2. Go to Apps > Cakewalk by BandLab
  3. Click Install. Follow the prompts to include any Add-Ons, then click OK to continue. When the install is complete, you will have a desktop icon for Cakewalk by BandLab, and the Install button will now read Open.
  4. With BandLab Assistant still open, launch Cakewalk by BandLab. This should allow the app and program to complete the auth process. After, you can open Cakewalk without having BandLab Assistant open. You may also use Cakewalk by BandLab while your machine is offline, as it only depends on an internet connection during the initial auth process.

BandLab Assistant will first download the installer, then automatically run the installer.

Authorization is written by BandLab Assistant during this process.

If you attempt to run the installer directly from your machine, Cakewalk by BandLab will revert to Demo Mode, as the authorization process did not occur.
