Has anyone updated to windows 10 and had no issues with songshow?

With the computer virus wiping everything out I am in the process of rebuilding and windows just tried to do an automatic update to windows 10 because I hadn't turned that off yet.  I stopped it but I wondered if it was something I could just update now instead of waiting for the next version of songshow since all the other computers at church are already on Windows 10

You have probably already made a decision but...

We are running with Windows 10 and have not had any issues with SSP on Windows 10.

The only issues we have had are with some of the bugs that still exist with the OS.

I would recommend running the Pro version so that you can completely disable automatic updates if you are connected to the internet. If you don't want the added cost of the professional version you can always set your network connection to 'metered' and updates will not be downloaded on that network.

I'm hoping 8.3 with it's official Windows 10 support will be out before the Windows 10 free upgrade offer ends on July 29.

I've been running SongShow with Win 10 since Win 10 came out and have not had any troubles whatsoever. I allow automatic updates as well. No issues. None. Time to upgrade!

Any update on the final release of 8.3 please Joel?

July 29 is looming and I'm wondering whether I'll be ok upgrading to 10 with 8.2 or is V 8.4.1.20628.2 going to be ok?

I don't have any inside scoop on when 8.3 will be out.

I can tell you that I've been using 8.2 on windows 10 on my personal laptop that I use to create an ssprog every week (which I package and take to church) and I have not experienced any problems. But I've not done any extensive projection sessions with it.

I am updating to Windows 10 today. The free version for most is done but there is still a way to get the free version and I want to do it before I have to end up paying for it!! Fingers crossed

I think you missed it.

"The free Windows 10 upgrade offer for devices running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 ended on July 29, 2016. A discounted "upgraded" version of Windows 10 isn't available."

I think you missed it.


Actually I did find lots of articles that state you can still do an upgrade by using an "accessibility hack" but even better, they are saying you can do a clean install of the Windows 10 1607 (AU version) using a Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 key.  It just assigns you a digital license as though you upgraded without the hassle of the upgrade process...

Neat Huh? 

No word on when that will stop working though....

I missed the free upgrade but like already said I was able to upgrade by saying I use assistive technologies.  Which they don't actually ask if you use.  A grey area maybe or definitely? 

I found it at this link

https://www.cnet.com/news/microsoft-windows-10-free-upgrade-offer-assistive-features/

So far no issues besides not recognizing the second monitor but it still worked for Sunday so I am here now seeing if it is an easy fix

stroke default?? by akins in Version 8.5

I'm tired of having the stroke show up where and how I don't want it.
When I go to apply or change the stroke it gives the option of using the
default or making a change. I want to set the default to something I might
actually use, but I can't find anything about the stroke default in the Help,
User guide, Knowledge base, etc. Can someone tell me how I can set the
default -- or, at least, turn it off?

RE: export slide show as video? by George in Version 8.5

Dick.  
This is not a tool that is available in SSB however there are several 3rd party screen capture tools that you can use (some free) that will also capture audio.  I think you would just need to make sure your intended screen res was set before starting but it should be fairly straight forward.

RE: Bug in wait time?? by akins in Version 8.5

Thanks, Joel

It certainly seems like that is the case. It saddens me to see, what once was
by far the best church display software, now not keeping up with user
desires/needs. Nothing in the tech world is forever!

Stay safe.

RE: Problem with Entrance Effect? by iamgap in Version 8.5

If I understand what you're describing, this has been an issue since version 8.0. If you turn off (or don't use) animate first step {or something like that}, this issue goes away. Unfortunately, you have to animate first step if you want any slide to appear blank before showing the first item. There is a work-around for this, but it doesn't look as good if the animations don't match the transition.

RE: Abbreviation of Bible version? by George in Version 8.5

Hi Joel.

That will work when projecting the scriptures but what Dick was looking for was a setting for the display in the program panel.  Unfortunately there is no setting for this.

RE: file searching by osborn4 in Version 8.5

Agreed. I would love to have an alpha sort order available. I don't care if a video is an AVI, WMV or MP4. I want to find the video.

AAH! Multi-line display works even though it takes up a lot of vertical space.

Windows 10 Mobile Control App by George in Mobile Apps

There is a SongShow Mobile Control app available that was originally developed with Windows Phone and the like in mind but we know what happened there.

This app is still available and works great as a troubleshooting tool or even for control of another machine.  This works on Windows 10 only.  It was tested on Windows 10 Home and Pro on a desktop and should work on any Windows 10 laptop or Surface device, though not sure about ARM devices. 

This can be found by searching for SongShow Mobile Control in the Microsoft Store in Windows 10 and installing from there.
