    What can i do?

    I wrote like 100bars of melodies and riffs arranged for bass, guitar and drums and it took countless of hours and now it doesn't ****ing work... of course, i illegally downloaded the software and used a fake cd-code but the program works fine but my file(the song) doesn't work, i can still go into the song but i cant do anything but i managed to export it to a midi file but almost the half song is erased and alot of stuff is screwed up!!

    Can somebody from french translate ""Lecture au-delá de la fin de fichier"" to english?

    anyway i'm going to upload the midi file which isn't complete as fast as i found out how to do it...

    I have to kill myself if i wasted all this time on nothing...

    EDIT: It works when i run it through guitar pro 3 but guess what!! I only have 46bars of the song left, so about 50bars has been erased, and the thing is i wrote a lot of the erased stuff through guitar pro not on my bass so i cant remember how to rewrite it... i hate guitar pro it suck dog poo...

    what can you do?

    get the program legally.

    my french is pretty rusty... but i believe it says something about reading to the end of the file

    I never had any problems with Guitar Pro 5, but then again, I paid for it. :p

    And so should you, it's actually pretty inexpensive.

    " this is reading even after the total time is finished"

    In other words, you're "registration key" has expired. Have you tried changing the date on your computer? I've been using my 1 month transcribe trial for a year now, no problems so far :D

    when you open the file and that "lecture au-del?.." crap pop up, close that pop up window and do "save as" to your file with a different name. than open another random GP file, and than open the new file you "saved as". it worked for me..

    Guitar Pro 6 is the latest version. I recommend actually buying it. You get any fixes updates etc. that you won't get with a cracked / bootleg copy. It's fairly inexpensive and is the hassle and frustration (that you have to do with cracked software) really worth it?

    (I work in software, actually music software, I'll leave it at that).
