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

Thanks, William. I could view the wish list in the subscriber forums, but the Version 9 forum didn't
appear until I updated my info.

RE: Assisting with CCLI Reports by osborn4 in You Tell Us!

CCLI no longer asks for projection activity. They just want "new" copies, which is when one is downloaded, printed or recorded, but not projected.

RE: installed fonts not showing on screen by osborn4 in Version 8.5

I still wish you'd allow OTF fonts. I can't always convert to TTF.

Windows allows them. Not sure why you don't.

RE: Lyrics not visible unless "full screen" margin is selected by George in Version 8.5

Hmm - that does seem odd.  
My recommendation would be to contact the support team and have them take a look.  They can remote with you and see what is going on.  It is possible that this is just a case of overlapping Slide Properties.

RE: Medleys by akins in Version 8.4

I have build a few songs using slideshow. It works fine and your can use different
backgrounds with whatever effects you would like. You can play the slideshow
any way you like; e.g., playing a chorus twice, going back to a verse, etc. I use
this for songs (like "How Great Thou Art") that we sing periodically and which have
verses which lend themselves to widely different backgrounds. You could even have
the same verse (named 1a, b, ..) with different backgrounds.

Multiple Displays and HDMI Switch by mlmurray in The Wave Pool

Hi All!
I need a little help after a much needed upgrade of my projection setup at church.  Previously I had a projector with a long throw lens in the sound booth with some VGA splitters and switches to get signal where I needed it and to control what was being projected, simple as could be.  Now, I've moved to a remote mounted projector and an HDBaseT sender to get my video and all to the projector from the booth, and I've moved over to HDMI in the booth.
My problem is that when switching between which computer is being sent to the HDBaseT sender I am constantly losing and adding monitors to the computers (from the computer's point of view anyway), by that I mean, if my SSP machine has a dedicated primary monitor and my secondary monitor is going to the projector, when I use my HDMI switch to change to send the PowerPoint computer to the projector then my SSP computer thinks I have unplugged it's secondary monitor.  That's not the end of the world to Windows, it will almost always find the monitor again when I switch back and set it all up with the same resolution and position as it was before, however SongShow doesn't handle the transition as smoothly.  When switching the HDMI away from the SSP computer it will collect it's display windows to the one remaining monitor and the only way to get it to pick up the second monitor again when we switch back to it is to close out of SSP and then re-open it and go into the display settings and re-setup the screens.
I thought if I used an HDMI splitter between the computer and the HDMI switch and put a dedicated monitor on one output of the splitter and the switch on the other then that dedicated monitor would hold that second monitor position and prevent it from flickering off and on when I used the switch, but it doesn't.  Windows still thinks, for a split second, that I remove a monitor when I switch away.  It finds the remaining split-off monitor immediately, but not before it flickers and SSP brings all of its screens to the primary monitor.
I didn't have this problem when everything was VGA, I guess there just wasn't the back and forth handshaking constantly going on between the computer and the display.  Has anyone else had to deal with this and come up with any solutions?
Thanks for any input!
Matt
