DOWNLOAD AND INSTALLATION
The following steps are required to obtain your software license:

Download

Select the package you have to download BASIC vs FULL package While the BASIC package contains only the files to run GERD, the FULL package contains additionally the Drivers for Roland Arrangers (for WIndows OS) and the Microsoft Redistributables for Visual C++ 2015. If you have already installed the driver for Roland‘s arrangers and the Microsoft Redistributables for Visual C++ 2015, you need to install only the BASIC package. If you are not sure what you have already installed, you should install the FULL package (it will check during the installation if the Redistributables of Microsoft are installed and in case they are missing, they will be installed automatically).  32 Bit vs 64 Bit More information related to the differences between the 32 and the 64 bit version can be found on our FAQ page. Generally we recommend to install the 32 bit version on 32 bit operating systems and the 64 bit version on 64 bit operating systems. Download your software product either directly by clicking on one of the download icons on the top pf this page or from our download center. After you downloaded the zip archive of the software package, please click with the right mouse button on the archive and select “Extract…“.  You can extract the archive into an arbitrary directory on your PC.

Deinstallation of former versions

While it is not mandatory to deinstall former versions of the GESINI tools, we recommend to deinstall former versions before you install a new version. Further information about the required steps for the deinstallation of software packages can be found in the manuals of the Windows Operating System.

Installation

Open the WIndows explorer and navigate to the directory where you have extracted the downloaded archive, Click on the executable of the installer (e.g. Setup-GERD.exe) to install the software. The installer of the FULL package offers the option to install the “Roland Arranger Driver“. This driver is mandatory for the GERD tools. You can intstall this driver either with the GERD‘s installer or independently of the GERD installer (then you have to download the driver from the webserver of Roland.com). All GESINI tools rely on the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Paclage. If this package is not available on your PC, the installer of the FULL package of  GERD offers to install the Microsoft Redistributable package. If you want to install the package independently, you have to disable the installation of the package in GERD‘s installer and then you can download and install the Microsoft Redistributable package afterwards. During the installation you have to select a directory where all settings files of GERD will be saved (in total these files have a few kB). Please make sure that you have the access rights to write into this directory and that the directory selected is not write-protected because it is a system directory, etc.

Selection of the Type of License

o After you have successfully installed the software package, you can start GERD with a double-click on the corresponding icon in the start menu. o The figure shows the initial dialog of GERD appearing immediately after the software has been started. o On this initial screen you have to decide if you want to run the demo, the temporary or one of the full licenses of GERD. While you can run the demo version without any further licensing steps, you will need a license file (or hardware USB key) for the temporary and the full license. o In case of any problems with the software (crash, display resolutions, blocked features, etc.) itt is recommended to control the start phase manually by the user. More information about the manual control of the start phase can be found on the FAQ page.

License Request (only for Temporary and Full Licenses without USB license key)
