Whether you're new to Sibelius, or installing version 7 for the first time, it's very important that you install the program, and its sampled sounds properly. After you insert your Sibelius 7 installer CD, make your way to the install disc menu, and choose your preferred language to arrive at the window pictured here on my screen. You'll want to start your installation by installing Sibelius 7. Click on that option, and follow the directions on your screen. After the program is installed, you'll want to install all of the Sibelius 7 sounds, but don't let the installer fool you.
The sounds reside on a total of four separate discs: your install disc, and three content discs. To install all of the sounds properly, you'll need to start the install of the sounds here with your install disc. When your computer is finished installing the first set of sounds, you'll want to quit out of this disc, insert content disc number one, and follow the instructions, allowing the content to load onto your computer. When content disc number one is finished, continue installing the sounds from content disc number two, and content disc number three.
You should be aware that these discs contain a large amount of files, so it may take a while to load all the sounds from the discs to your computer. When all of the sounds have been loaded from the install disc, and all three content discs, you'll want to return to the install CD, and back to this window. Next, you'll want to install all of the add-on features that are packaged with Sibelius. Run the installer separately for PhotoScore Lite, AudioScore Lite, and Scorch. When you're finished installing all of the options on your installer disc, you can exit installation.
If you allow the installers to place shortcuts on your Desktop, you can double-click on the purple Sibelius 7 icon to launch and register Sibelius.
