User Manual

For full, up to date documentation on how to use Finale, choose Help > User Manual. Finale opens the User Manual using your default browser and accesses the latest online content from MakeMusic’s servers.

To download the manual for offline use, visit the Finale Knowledge Base.

 

Authorizing Finale

The first time you launch Finale, you will be prompted to authorize. To authorize a single copy of Finale, click Authorize Now to open the Authorization Wizard (or, choose Help > Authorize Finale). Then follow the instructions to authorize your copy of Finale via the Internet or mail. If you choose not to authorize, you will be prompted to do so each time you launch Finale. If you do not authorize within thirty days, printing and saving are disabled until you choose to authorize.

Note that the User/Authorization Codes are computer specific, and will only work on the given computer installation. Make sure that the Authorization Code is typed in using capital letters, and also verify that the correct serial number has been entered. Your copy of Finale can be authorized on two computers simultaneously, and, with an Internet connection, authorization can be moved from one computer to another at will. Simply choose Help > Deauthorize Finale to open up a free slot. Your copy of Finale can now be authorized on a different computer. When you deauthorize, printing and saving are disabled until authorization has been restored.

If you make a change to the computer (such as replacing the hard drive or motherboard, or installing a new operating system), then you will need to re-authorize the installation. If you no longer have access to the computer or hard drive that previously had an authorized version of Finale installed, go to the My Account page at www.makemusic.com. Click the My Software button and click Manage Authorizations. Here, you can delete authorizations on machines no longer in your possession. If you have deleted the maximum number of authorizations from your account, you will need to contact the Customer Success Team online at www.finalemusic.com/support with your serial number and the location ID for the specific installation in question. If the software is not "reminding" you to authorize when you run the program, then the registration/authorization has been successfully completed.

 

Installation Details

To accommodate the autonomy of each of a computer's multiple users, and to prevent permissions issues, Finale installs its components to various locations on your hard drive depending on their function and required accessibility. See "Finale Installation Details" in the User Manual for more information.

 

Download and Finale Trial

Finale is available as a download from our website. The trial version is identical to the full version, but does not include the Garritan sounds or music files. After the 30-day trial period, printing and saving are disabled. To purchase the full version of Finale, along with all sounds and features, choose Help > Purchase Finale. Trial users: after purchasing, another download is necessary to acquire the Garritan sounds and music files.

Converting Finale 2012 (and earlier) documents into Finale documents

Finale 2014 and later have a different file format than earlier versions and will open and convert older versions' documents, giving them the default title "UNTITLED.MUSX.” We recommend saving a newly converted document with a different name than the original file, keeping the older unconverted file as a backup. If you do want to save the file using the same name, choose Save As from the File menu. Finale Maintenance is run automatically to check for any errors while opening old files as long as Clean Up File Data is checked in Finale > Preferences > Open (checked by default).

 

Running older versions of Finale

Finale 2012 (and earlier versions) for Windows or Mac cannot open any standard Finale 2014 or later file. To open a Finale 2014 or later document in an earlier version, choose File > Export > Finale 2012 (for Finale 2012 only) or File > Export > MusicXML (all other versions). Finale for Windows includes the MusicXML importer back to version 2003, and then back to 2000 using software available separately. Finale for Mac supports MusicXML import back to version 2006, and back to 2004 (OS X only) using software available separately. See www.musicxml.com.

 

Finale Preferences File

The Finale Preferences file contains many program settings, from the configuration of your tool palette to the display colors you select. Finale stores this file in your System Folder's Preferences folder, although it will look first in the same folder for a Preference file.

Finale does not share the preferences file with older versions of Finale. Finale will automatically load the new Finale default settings upon launching Finale for the first time. To use Finale's default settings at any time, simply reset your Finale Preferences file by choosing Finale > Preferences and clicking the Reset All Preferences button. A new preferences file will be generated the next time you start Finale.

Keep in mind that older versions cannot read the newer version's preferences.

Running Finale

 

System Requirements

Windows 7 (SP1)/8/10 (64-bit compatible). Intel Core 2 Duo processor or AMD Athlon processor (Intel i3 or AMD Athlon II X2 and above recommended). 600MB hard drive space required for software.

 

USB port required for installation or high-speed Internet connection for download. 800x600 minimum monitor resolution (1366x768 and above recommended). Minimum 2GB RAM (8GB or more recommended for optional use of Garritan and Tapspace (VST) sounds: more RAM = more available sounds.) An additional 2GB hard drive space is required for all included VST sounds. Internet connection required for updates and help resources.

 

Optional: MIDI interface. MIDI input and/or playback device. Printer. A soundcard, including standard DirectSound, WASAPI, or ASIO, is required for playing VST sounds in Windows.

 

Installing Finale

If any previous version of Finale has been installed on the machine, Finale recommends that you restart your computer and log on as System Administrator before installing. This will prevent erroneous font warnings.

 

We recommend that you install Finale, and any other software, when logged in as System Administrator.

 

If you encounter problems during installation, we recommend that you do the following:

 

  1. Turn off any programs running in the background. Virus detectors can often prevent Finale from installing necessary files and updating the registry. Rest assured, your Finale USB does not contain any viruses.
  2. Press CTRL-SHIFT-ESC and click on the Process tab. In the Processes Tab, click on "User Name" to sort the running programs by user ID name. This lists every process that is running on the system.
  3. Under the User Name column, look at all of the processes ("Image Name") with your account name. Click on each one, and then click "End Process" and select OK. Do this for every process assigned to your name except “taskmgr.exe”, “explorer.exe”, and “System Idle Process.”
  4. Close the Task Manager.
  5. Check your system tray (lower-right corner of the screen) for any running programs, especially antivirus software, which can interfere with proper installation of programs. Right-click each and choose Close.

Starting Finale - DLLs

Most applications (including MakeMusic products) require a set of files, the Microsoft redistributables, in order to work successfully on your system. These redistributable files are normally already present on most systems and are not generally included in application setup/install scripts. These files are constantly updated by Microsoft and are operating-system specific; including these files in an application installer could result in incorrect files being added in your system and subsequent problems.

In rare cases these files may be missing or out of date on your system. In this case an error will be reported when you start the program. Here are some examples of the errors that could be reported:

If the files are missing...

'The dynamic link library MSVCP60.DLL could not be found in the specified path...'

or

'The dynamic link library MSVCRT.DLL could not be found in the specified path...'

If the files are out of date...

'The OCXTS.EXE file is linked to missing export MFC42.DLL:6880.'

 

If you see one of these messages, visit www.microsoft.com for more information regarding these files and how to restore them.

 

Installation Details

To accommodate the autonomy of each of a computer's multiple users, and to prevent permissions issues, Finale installs its components to various locations on your hard drive depending on their function and required accessibility. See “Finale Installation Details” in the User Manual for more information.
