Windows 8 compatible???
« on: May 06, 2013, 02:45:14 PM »
I am curious to hear if anyone has had any success with using Windows 8 with their system. I will probably be getting a copy of the OS soon to test and I would love to hear the pros and cons that folks have been using with this particular OS. Also, Admin, if you could comment as well, that would be great. I know that you will always support Windows OS, but do you currently support and recommend Windows 8 or are we still in the testing phase? Thanks.

Chris

Works pretty well on our tests....

To remove metro UI on windows 8, download and install

to add the signage controller on the startup,

press the windows button + R,  on the run command type %appdata%, and then open
Microsoft > Windows > Start Menu > Programs > Startup

Then create a shortcut of the Signage controller.exe on that folder.

The Signage Controller can be found here:

c:\Program Files\SignagePlayer\win32\SignageController.exe.
