GarageBand ‘09: Templates missing after Logic Studio or Logic Express 8 installation

Your project templates for GarageBand '09 may be missing after you install Logic Studio or Logic Express 8. The GarageBand '09 templates may also be missing if you purchased a computer with Logic Express 8 pre-installed.

If Logic is already installed, reinstall iLife '09 to resolve this issue.

When installing Logic, selecting the option to include GarageBand '08 content as part of the Logic Studio or Logic Express 8 installation will overwrite GarageBand '09 content. When you install Logic, deselect the GarageBand content option in the installer.

If you purchased iLife '09 separately, reinstall it from the disc it came on.

If iLife '09 was pre-installed, follow these directions to reinstall it on your computer:

  1. Insert the "Applications Install DVD" that came with your computer.
  2. Double-click the Installed Bundled Software installer.
  3. Click Customize in the Install Bundled Applications window.
  4. Click the disclosure triangle to the left of Bundled Applications to reveal the choices.
  5. Deselect everything except GarageBand.
  6. Click the disclosure triangle to the left of GarageBand and include GarageBand Additional Instruments and Loops.
  7. Click Install.
