What does the purchase give me?

When you download the program, you get the full set of features as a 30 day trial. After 30 days it will stop working. By purchasing, you can use the program forever and it will no longer require an internet connection to run.

Can the program separate out vocals/instruments?

Currently, no instrument detection occurs. All notes get written to the same part.

Why is the program is crashing?

The most common reason for this is running out of memory. You need a minimum of about 4 GB free RAM for most songs. The software should display a message if it detects low memory. If you have Dell Backup and Recovery installed, there is a known bug in that software that causes AnthemScore and other Qt-based programs to crash when you try to open a file using the file dialog. You can fix this by upgrading or uninstalling Dell Backup and Recovery or simply drag and drop audio files onto the side panel rather than clicking the 'Open' icon. If you encounter any other issues, send some feedback from within the app (help -> Send feedback) and we will check for any crash reports from your computer.

Can I get just the bass clef or treble clef notes?

In AnthemScore, if you click File > Save As there are options for changing the octave or removing notes that lie outside a custom range. See details in the documentation.

I lost my activation key. Can you resend it?

Search for an email with "AnthemScore Activation Key" in the subject. If you can't find it, visit key recovery.

Can I transfer a license to another computer?

No. However, you can activate one extra device each full year from your purchase date.

I re-installed the operating system. Will that use up an activation?

If it's the same physical computer, it should not change your total remaining activations. You can verify this using the form below and send us an email if that is not the case.

How many activations do I have left?

Enter the email used for purchase and your activation key to check the number of activations remaining.



Can I install on 32 bit Windows?

The 32 bit build has been discontinued. AnthemScore doesn't run well on 32 bit versions of Windows. It is a memory and processor intensive application and will frequently hit memory limits and crash in 32 bit Windows. You can still use the online transcription service.

Why am I getting 'a valid playback service was not found'?

The "N" versions of Windows don't come with Windows Media Foundation (WMF), which is used by AnthemScore to load audio files. If you have an "N" version, you'll need to install a media pack from Microsoft. You can also use a utility like Dependency Walker to identify any specific DLLs you are missing. Another reason for this message is running on Windows Vista, which is not a supported operating system. If you're using Linux, make sure to follow the extra steps on the download page.

How do I uninstall?

For Windows and Linux, run "maintenancetool" in the installation folder and select the remove option. For OS X, delete the application. To complete the uninstallation, delete the AnthemScore application data folder (usual location for Windows: "C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\AnthemScore", Linux: "~/.local/share/AnthemScore", OS X: "~/Library/Application Support/AnthemScore").
