SONAR X2 Rapture 1.2.2 Installation Patch

Last updated on 3/22/2016

A new stand-alone installer is available for the version of Rapture 1.2.2 shipped with SONAR X2 Producer. The installer resolves the following customer reported issues:

Issue 1:

In some cases, the Rapture installer would not automatically launch at the end of the SONAR X2 Producer installation. The stand-alone installer allows everyone to launch the Rapture installation manually without having to re-run the SONAR X2 Producer installation.

Issue 2:



In some cases, if a previous version of Rapture already was installed, users would end up with multiple versions of Rapture 1.2.2. The new version would insert correctly with the new Rapture serial number (in a CWRP-1.22-XXXXXX-XXXXXX) format, however the old instance of Rapture would show up with a blank serial number field. This would make it impossible to authorize Rapture.




The new Rapture installer now automatically uninstalls previous versions of Rapture before installing the latest version. This resolves any authorization issues and ensures you are running the latest build of Rapture 1.2.2

Issue 3:



When attempting to run the Rapture 1.2.2 installer, customers who already had Dimension Pro installed (from a disc installer of Dimension Pro 1.2 or from SONAR 8 or SONAR 8.5) would be met with the message:




"The installer has detected that a previous version of Dimension Pro is currently installed. Please download the 1.5 update from"


Afterwards the installer would quit and redirect to the Cakewalk website. This no longer happens.
