After installation of 3.0.20 on a Windows 7 64 bit system, clicking on the top menu item: Rec/Playback causes program to shut down. No error message just the "Please wait" bar. shown for a couple of seconds, then I have to re-start the program

I realise the video record won't work with Win7 but hoped the other recordings (AF/IQ) would be still OK but can't access these options now.

Will Not Ever Work On Windows 7. Might work on 8.1.

Never expected video record to work on Win7 but the audio and IQ worked on previous SDR-C versions with Win7.

Unlike Terry, I kind of expected new releases to still work on Windows 7 for at least a while yet.

I think I read somewhere that 70% of desktops are still using it.

Why did you cut off support for Windows 7 so soon after MS cut off support for it? (And technically they didn't stop supporting it, if you want to pay money for extended support.)

It's rather presumptuous (and selfish) to expect Simon to remain chained to obsolete technology (and Windows 7 is unarguably obsolete) just because a user of his FREE software doesn't feel any need to modernize.

In today's world, if you can't run with the big dogs (and Simon is a Big Dog), stay on the porch.

Ditto! (Marks comments)
 
     I just picked up an HP laptop with an i3 for very small quid (money) on Craigslist. Took a LONG time for W10 to wipe and reset (about 4 hours), but I now have another machine to be dedicated for server service. The i5's and i7's I got from Craigslist are just too sweet to be sitting in the basement or repeater shed for server service.😉 I was hesitant about the switch to W10, but now it's my preferred OS.
   BTW, the i3 runs SDRC, even via WiFi just fine, with no stuttering!

   If somebody wants to dwell in the past, I have a stack of Acer netbooks with Windows XP available! 😆

Hi,

The API I use doesn't work on Windows 7, the rest of the software runs on Windows 7 ok.

Thanks Simon for the clarification, and my apologies for misrepresenting that SDRC itself doesn't work on Windows 7. I hadn't completely woken up yet....

Nothing is obsolete if it does what I need it to. So yeah, I guess I'll stay on my old-fashioned rocking chair on the porch and listen to stations from around the world on Medium Wave using a Perseus SDR from 10 years ago, and whatever software I can find that works with it, among which is Simon's SDR-Console.

Hi,

 

I also updated the new FAQ: https://www.sdr-radio.com/faq

 

Myself, I would update the PC to W10, you can do this for free: https://www.sdr-radio.com/windows-upgrade

Hi Simon
Many thanks for the update. New version works perfectly with Win7-64, without the video as expected. The original and the new also work perfectly with my other Win10-64 4G I7 system

I'm sorry if my first post seemed to be a criticism or whinge, I was just trying to report what happened without waffle. I fully accept that Win7 compatibility will have to be sacrificed so that you can continue to advance the S/W and make use of the changes/additions in Win10 and future Windows O/S.. I also very much appreciate using the software on a free/donation basis.

I have a lot of legacy/classic receiver hardware that doesn't work with Win10 (or SDR-Console) but it has been convenient to have everything on the same machine. I guess I will need to run a separate legacy system in future.

Thanks again

Terry G0EZY

Sorry, Simon I have the same "error code -10" issue and I cannot understand how to resolve it, if it's even possible, from the link you provided.  Or maybe I'm just not IT literate enough...WIN10-64 bit desktop.

Regards,

Steve

Steve,

 

“The video recorder uses the Windows Desktop Duplication API which does not support being run against the discrete GPU on a Microsoft Hybrid system.”

 

There’s really no workaround.

Thanks, but I've no idea what that means...other than you saying "There's really no workaround"...
