New License Manager, Installer won’t launch

I’m having the same problem as I did with the last version. I downloaded the new license manager 3031, I run the License Manager Installer, all good. Then I click on the License Manager, a little blue circle starts spinning, then stops, and nothing.

I checked my antivirus and “ allowed “ BFDdrums installer. I tried to find anything in Windows that would screw things up.

So, I ran my old BFD3 update 1.5.18 and it’s beautiful. Does that prove that the problem is not on my end ?

Wow, BFD3.1.5.18, that’s ancient.

I’m pretty sure that version isn’t tied in with the licence manager and so it doesn’t need to log in to install it, hence the smooth install.

Thanks for your reply. When I first migrated, I actually got the LM to work, and the latest version installed, but it failed with Pro Tools.

I later downloaded my new expansion pack and London Sessions, and since, nothing works.

I’m thinking of deleting all of the new InMusic stuff and start over, any thoughts ? I don’t have a lot to lose.

Am I the only one ? I feel so alone.

Hey, my problem was solved, BFD_Drew answered me and got it working, I will try to post the fix later.

Hey, this is what solved this problem

Hi Tom,
Very sorry for the slow response. Try this:

  1. Delete: C:\Users\ USERNAME \AppData\Roaming\BFD Drums\BFD License Manager
  2. Delete: C:\Users\ USERNAME \AppData\Local\inMusicBrands\SoftwareUnlock
  3. Open the Registry Editor and delete: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\BFD Drums\BFD License Manager
  4. Delete: C:\Program Files\BFD Drums\BFD License Manager
  5. Re-download BFD License Manager from
  6. Install it again with no BFD Drums software being open, and it should launch.
