License Manager won't load BFD2 for Authorization

I upgraded to License Manager and then upgraded to BFD3.4.3.7. Now my BFD2 is not showing up in the license manager and won’t work within BFD3 anymore. It only works if I put it on a new track in Logic Pro or in stand alone mode. The BFD2 serial number will not work in the new License Manager in order to authorize it. The BFD2 kits show up in BFD3, but are grayed out and not authorized to be used within BFD3.4.

How do I get it to integrate back into BFD3.4 like it did before?


BFD2 the actual software won’t show up in the LM as it’s no longer supported but it still runs fine if you have the original .WAV file library. IT can’t read the new BFDLAC file format so if you’re wanting to use the BFD2 libraries in BFD3 you need to follow the instructions above from Kafka.

I have BFD2 and BFD Eco.
For what it’s worth, BFD Eco is able to read the BFDLAC format


Thanks, Steve. BFD Drums support responded and set my license manager up with the London Sessions. After the install, BFD2 and the London Sessions are both working from within BFD3 now. I don’t own BFD Eco so that wasn’t a problem. Thanks again!



I love that in order to “prevent spam”, we have to all submit 5 spam posts to get to a level where we can get the needed support.

One more? Again? How many do I need? (oh shit, this one was too “quick”?)

Welcome to the world, where things no longer make sense.
