independence free install trouble

Independence Free

PC Windows10
DAW cakewalk


I originally used it on Windows 8.1.
I migrated to Windows 10 and could not load it in cakewalk.

I tried reinstalling it.
When I install "independence_freelibrary_dlm
Couldn't find the file "" in the zip file!

I changed my PC user name, erased all files, and installed
and reinstalled it, but no luck.
There was no answer for me on the forum.

Maybe I am too new to this question.
I searched the net and found many Japanese people who have faced similar problems.
However, I couldn't find the answer in any of the blogs, or I had to delete the blog.
I am still unable to find the answer.
Can anyone help me to install Independence Free on Windows 10?

Thank you for reading this.
Sorry for my poor English.

Welcome to the Magix user to user forums.

I think you are trying to install the wrong file! The Independence Free program installer is called "independence_softwaresuite_32_dlm.exe". The file you list is the installer for the Independence Free library, i.e., the instruments that are included in the Free version.

To download the correct installer go to this page.

This could also be a problem with your Windows user name. There could be a character or symbol that the installer cannot process correctly.

As a workaround create a new Windows user account and only use ASCII characters in the username. Log into the new Windows user account and install Independence.

I look forward to working with you in the future.

I have installed it with a file downloaded from that link you indicated.

Thank you for your comment.
We have changed the user name to be fine.
Still can't get it to install.

@oyamatumi I'm not sure if changing the username is enough. Here was another user with the same problem some years ago and it only worked after creating a new user account.

I see, I will try to create an account once.

Create a new user account and log in with it.
Delete all files and start the installation with the newly downloaded files.
I got a new ERROR as shown in the image.

This is a serious problem before library installation.
I am completely lost.

@oyamatumi What are your Windows current system locale settings in the Windows Settings > Time and Language > Language > Administrative language settings > Region Administrative tab > Language for non-Unicode programs? Japanese?
