Latest build of SSP 8.3
I have three PC's of different makes, configurations, and operating systems (Win 10 & 7).
One is a projection machine, the others workstations. Almost every time I rebuild the database
index, it will stop after about 1/2 way with "Not Responding" and then close the "rebuilding"
window. Re-doing the operation over again always works perfectly. This would seem to indicate
some minor bug in the software

If this is something that is consistent you should contact the support team and show them.  Once they can observe it will be easier to address.

Also - how often do you need to do this?  This is not something that should need to be done all teh time.  If it is happening every time you open SSP and there have not been any changes then there are different issues to address.  You can try running the cleanup tool to see if there are remnants or corrupted songs that are causing the need to re-index.

FYI - The not responding may just be the notification window rather than the actual operation.  which would make sense if it completes quickly the second time.  

Support can help.

"Clean-up tool?" Where is that located?
Do I need to do this very often? Once a week on two computers. I build the program on
my workstation at home (which usually involves addition and/or changes to songs), rebuild
the index, backup to a USB drive, go to the church projection PC, restore the database,
rebuild, and copy the program to the PC. If there's an easier way to do this, I would surely
like to hear about it. All my user files (images, video, slide shows, etc.) are the same on all my
PC's -- that is, everything looks the same on each to the user (me).

The tool I was referring to is found from the main toolbar -- Tools > Database Utilities > SongShow Plus > Fix-up Song Titles.

This tool will scan the database for inconsistencies that prevent proper display.

As far as your methodology....

Normally, there is no reason to manually rebuild the songs database.  In most cases, if it is necessary, SSP will do it automatically.

Are you doing a full SSP/database backup and moving that?  

The best route to go is to use the Package To Go tool.  
Create your program.
Save your program.
File menu > Package to go... -- Package that to your desktop then copy to the USB drive.
Take to projection computer and Restore Package.

This will only gather and move the necessary pieces for the program you are using.  When the package is restored on the destination system, it will automatically put things where they belong. Again, SSP would re-index if it was needed.  It is not always necessary to re-index and it may not always be visible when done automatically.  If you are editing/adding/cloning a single or a few song(s), SSP will handle that on the fly.

The PTG tool will save a lot of hassle.

Thanks for the info, George.
Actually backing up on one PC and restoring on another isn't much hassle, but I'll try
PTG and see if it saves me any time.

PTG isn't nearly as convenient as Backup/Restore. Often I have changed (edited) songs
at home that aren't in one program and I just want to mirror those changes on the church
computer. Until recently this went fast and smoothly via Rebuild Database/Backup to USB drive,
then Restore/Rebuild Database on the other computer. It does look like Rebuild is stopping, but
actually completing the operation (I'm not sure how I can validate this). In any event, if it
stops, one must run it again just to make sure. Bottom line -- it shouldn't stop! It happens on
both workstation and projection PCs. Perhaps there is a glitch in one of the songs, but running
Rebuild twice always works.

RE: 8.4 Wont Display on Screen by George in Version 8.4

Dave,

It is possible...  I suggest that you call in to the support team - they can connect and sort out any settings issues that you might have pretty quick.

Thanks for choosing SongShow Plus!

RE: Video playback settings by osborn4 in Version 8.4

OK. Seems like an extra menu we have to navigate for little payback. We can select what we want from the sub menu, or if the playback dialog would launch w/o the submenu, we could use that extra mouse click in the dialog box. Same number of clicks. Extra work for you.

SSB errors by akins in Version 8.4

The Black-White gradient backgrounds seem to be way off center for:
Swirls; Center out, gradient; center out, ripple; center out, ripple skewed; and right-shading.
They are not at all like what is shown.
Question: Do these only apply if black and white are chosen for the left and right colors?

Thanks - for the present the old fashion hand-wave may be the easiest, safest, and all-around best method.

RE: 8.4 Plus 10/31 Update by George in Version 8.4

The 10/31 build of 8.4 is the latest build and would the the one used to update.
The cleanest way to update would be to simply download and install the 10/31 build from the Download Page and install it.

RE: DMX in SSP by osborn4 in Version 8.4

If your DMX controller can accept MIDI input, theoretically, you could fire a MIDI cue from SSP as an audio file. Of course, your SSP machine will need to have a midi card.

Theoretically.

Presentation Remote for PowerPoint by jonereb in Version 8.4

I need recommendations for a presentation remote for preachers who use PowerPoint. It needs to have a 100 ft. range and work with a room full of cell phones and wifi interference. My current remote works fine when the room is half full, but with a large crowd, it is completely untrustworthy.

RE: SSB: copy background to multiple slides by George in Version 8.4

Hey Dick.  Sorry to hear you are having trouble.

If you contact the support team they can walk through that with you and then if there is a bug or something incorrect in the user guide they can identify that and report it.

Thanks again.
