POD Farm 1.12 - Install Error
by BigBad on 2011-07-09 04:46:51.5130


In short, I am unable to get POD Farm 1.12 Platinum installed (it used to work fine).  - Running on Windows 7 64-bit.

I found that POD Farm was not recognizing the iLok key, and so attempted to reinstall from scratch (iLok is recognized by Win and iLok site).  This installation brought about a problem whereby it would skip installation of files and just create empty folders.  I thought that this could be as it was an older installation of Win 7 and so formatted and started from scratch.

Even on a clean install, however, it was again skipping the files.  The only way to get an installation that would actually have an openable file was to use the non-iLok install as well.  However, the tones folder is empty and they were still skipped.  If I install for iLok only it creates the folders but 'skips' actually putting any files into them making the whole program non-existent.

I have also tried changing the installation path (as per log below) but still have the same problem.

To summarize:

  • iLok and client software and drivers are correctly installed
  • Have installed as Administrator
  • Tried changing installation path
  • All folders created from installation are empty

If anyone could suggest how I could overcome this, it would be appreciated.  I love the software and was considering upgrading to v2 but really wonder if I want to have all of this trauma to get it working.

Thanks in advance,

Hey BigBad,

You will need to make sure to uninstall all instances of POD Farm and Line 6 software from the computer:

-Completely uninstall all of the POD Farm files using the Line 6 Uninstaller within:

Programs/Line 6/Tools folder.

Next make sure that you have the most recent version of the Line 6 drivers and Monkey installed as well:

Windows Drivers

Line 6 Monkey 1.41:

The update to Line 6 Monkey will include an update to the License Manager as well. Download and install POD Farm 1.12 from the link below:

Install it but do not launch it yet.

Can you please then try using the updated License Manager software to de-authorize and re-authorize your computer as well as all of your Line 6 devices. Make sure to remove the information when prompted to, and then install again when prompted to, this will ensure that you reinstall all of your available Line 6 assets from your account into your device.

Try launching POD Farm 1.12 and let us know your results.

Although after review your account page, it appears as though your POD Farm 1 iLOK license was only a 15 day trial license that was started on 2009-12-24. So at this time your trial has since expired.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
