1. First of all we create a folder, for example BFD Library and copy all the folders from the images into it and also copy 4 folders from the distribution: ~ Grooves ~ ~ Kits ~ ~ Maps ~ ~ Presets ~

2. When the distribution is completely downloaded, everything should look like this:

3. Next, you need to download the BFD3 module from another distribution (if you do not have it)

4. Run the file: BFD3 Installer Win.exe and install it.

5. Then run the file: LicenseManager 2.0.18.exe and install.

6. We move to the folder on the C: \ Program Files (x86) \ FXpansion \ LicenseManager and run LicenseManager.exe. In the window that appears, select Work Offline.

7. Next, the BFD3 line will appear in the Products that need authorization window. Press NEXT. The following screen appears, in which you need to enter the serial number. Run KeyGen.exe and select BFD3 in it and click Generate Serial Number. The code to be copied and pasted into the Serial Number Requested window is generated. KeyGen is not closed! Double-click NEXT and then NEXT again and select the desktop and save the file for subsequent authorization.

8. Click Cancel then OK in the Products that need authorization window

9. Then click on KeyGen: Generate Auth file from Request File and select the file saved on the desktop (it will be located in the folder FXpansion Authorization Request). Next, save to the desktop the proposed file with the extension .auth

10. Click on the Import tab in the LicenseManager and select the file from the desktop and open it. A window appears indicating successful activation. Click OK and close LicenseManager and KeyGen

11. Launch the BFD3 plug-in from the desktop or from the start menu. The BFD3 Content Locations window appears. We click the Search Folder … button and specify the folder with all the BFD libraries (the one into which all the images of the BFD libraries were unpacked)

12. Next, all libraries will start scanning, you will have to wait until it finishes. To use.


Libraries no longer require activation! Activation requires only one BFD3 Core Library and all other libraries are bound to it automatically.
BFD2 Library has only a few folders, all the others have been deleted, since there is a newer library called London Sessions
The distribution also contains the following extensions:

Vintage Rock Grooves
Dan Foord Polyrhythmic Metal
Heavy Rock Classics
Virtually Erskine Grooves
Stanton Moore Grooves
Japanese Taiko Grooves
JM Essentials Vol.1
JM Essentials Vol.2
Platinum Samples
Groove Monkee
and others

Duplicate tools have been removed, so it makes sense to download the distribution completely. Some libraries in the original contained whales and presets for both BFD2 and BFD3. Partial presets and whales from BFD2 were added.

The distribution was created from scratch and it corrected all the shortcomings that I made earlier.
