Just upgraded from 2.5.1 to 3.0. Now every selection under Quickstart (play keys, play synths, play drums, etc) displays the error message: "Could not open project - Can't use project template" when I click on the open button.

so you can take money with no delay but not fix problems or answer questions for 2 days?

I uninstalled v3.0 and reinstalled v2.5.1 and everything is working fine. Hopefully v3.0 will be patched soon to correct this error.

same problem, reinstall did not fix.

Same problem here. Fresh install of Bitwig Studio 8-Track on WIndows 10. Neither Template Project nor Bitwig Demo Projects works. Both end up with the above mentioned message.

"(your upgrade plan includes this version.)" Maybe, but none of the packages are supported, so the upgrade has rendered Bitwig unusable.

I strongly suggest avoiding installing Bitwig 3.0 until there's a response on this thread.

First-time install by a new user - exactly the same problem here - not a happy bunny. Even 'free' software is meant to work!!!

and still no response from another greedy company. great company.

No wonder I'm getting this error - the Documents > BitWig Studio > Library > Templates folder is EMPTY, as is the Projects folder.

I'm on Windows 10 (64-bit) and I installed with the default folder locations etc.

Same problem here. Why is the upgrade offered if it doesn't work?


answered Jul 18 at 03:06 by jamps (11)

There isn't even the option to download the older version which perhaps would work.

Still no response from 'Support' after five days since the OP :-(
