    Hi, after wiping my hard drive I found myself unable to reinstall GarageBand (which I use for my work and cannot live without!) I obtained the iLife 5 install disk and did a full install. After getting an "installation successful" message I tried to open Garageband and I get an error message that says I have an invalid Instrument Library. I do have the library in the place it says I should have it but the app still doesn't open.

    Maybe I should uninstall and reinstall GarageBand/iLife? But the disk does not have the uninstall option. Please help! thanks to all in advance.

    to uninstall a program you can either delete the file or use a program call appzapper from which removes all of a apps files

    Have you customised the Instrument Library in any way or is this a completely fresh install? Are the iLife discs full retail versions or are they upgrades? Did this machine previously have iLife 05 on it or is that a downgrade? :)
