Dolet 6.6 for Finale and Dolet 6.5 for Sibelius

Postby Michael Good » Tue Nov 17, 2015 7:14 pm

Today we released updates to both our Dolet for Finale and Dolet for Sibelius plug-ins. Dolet 6.6 for Finale adds support for Finale 2014.5 and Dolet 6.5 for Sibelius adds support for Sibelius 8. There is more information on the MusicXML blog.

For Sibelius users not planning to upgrade to Sibelius 8, is there any advantage of Dolet 6.5 over 6.4 (other than just staying current)? Were there any enhancements of fixes other than the Sib8 support?

No, Dolet 6.5 for Sibelius was all about updating the installers to work with Sibelius 8 and Windows 64-bit-only installations. Dolet 6.6 for Finale on the other hand has several enhancements beyond Finale 2014.5 support.

Hello,

I am trying to install Dolet. I have Sibelius 7.5 on a Windows 7 machine.

With Dolet 6.5 I am getting an error message stating "the installation package is not supported by this porocessor type. Contact product vendor

with Dolet 6.4 the I am getting an error message stating "Sibelius 5,6,7 or 7.5 could not be found on your system. The Dolet 6 for Sibelius pug-n cannot be installed"

Do you have any suggestion of what I might try?

Thanks

I am also trying to install the dolet 6.5 on Windows 7 SP1, for Sibelius 5.2.5 (in my case).
I am also getting the same error message: "the installation package is not supported by this porocessor type. Contact product vendor". Evidently, the new installation update is not working as claimed.

I don't have an earlier version of the dolet to try out.

Please help. I need to use this, but can not.

Are these errors happening on 32-bit Windows machines? We updated the Dolet for Sibelius installer to 64-bit because we were seeing more problems (like that Dolet 6.4 message) on 64-bit systems.

If so, do either of you have a 64-bit Windows system that you can try this on?

Sorry for the delay. I did not get an email notice that you had replied to my post. Maybe I hadn't checked the box. It is checked now.


My work computer is 32-bit. My home computer is 64-bit.

I was able to install dolet on my home 64-bit machine.

Is there an installer I can use for my 32-bit computer?

Thanks

Use the Dolet for Sibelius 6.4 installer on your 32-bit system. The error messages you were reporting with that version should be present on 64-bit systems only. If not, please let me know.

The only difference between 6.4 and 6.5 was to add Sibelius 8 and 64-bit support to the installer.

I can only find the 6.5 and 6.6 version on the website.

Can you tell me the location or a link for 6.4?

Thanks,

All of the links (even those listed as 6.4) eventually end up and the 6.5 download page.
