Windows 10 > Using SongShow Plus on Windows 10


3/3/2015 4:35:49 PM
Microsoft's next iteration of the operating system is Windows 10.  Windows 10 is currently available as a technical preview download and is free for anyone to try out.  The preview availability is expected to end on April 15th 2015 with Windows 10 release to be later in 2015.   While a specific date was not available as of this post, it is speculated to fall between June and August 2015.

Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for Win7/8.1 users for the first year.  For more information on Windows 10, a quick Google search will get you more than you want to know...

UPDATE: Windows 10 was publicly released in July 2015

Regarding Windows 10 and SongShow Plus:
We have done some preliminary testing and it seems to be behaving as expected so far but more testing will be going on.  If you decide to make the leap to Windows 10, either in the preview period or after its launch, and run into issue that you believe are Windows 10 related please post them here.

The first fully supported version will be SongShow Plus 8.3.  Once version 8.3 is ready for production release it will have been run through a larger, more detailed battery of tests using Windows 10 in its current form.  At that point we will consider version 8.3 ready for Windows 10 use.  We will not be testing previous versions of SongShow Plus with Windows 10 and suggest that these updates occur at the same time.

If you choose to proceed with updating to Windows 10 on your SongShow Plus systems we will still take your feedback (this is always helpful) through the support team and this forum but keep in mind these issues may not be addressed right away.

Tips for Using SongShow Plus on Windows 10
  • If you do an in-place update to Windows 10 from your current operating system we recommend that you deactivate SongShow Plus first, then update the OS, then re-activate SongShow Plus.  This will ensure a smooth transition.
  • While there are no known issues at this time, we recommend that you do not operate SongShow Plus on Microsoft Account login.  We recommend using a local system account for using SongShow Plus.
Additional Updates will be posted as needed to this forum/thread.
