After viewing the tutorial (Which I find very usefull..keep the coming), I could not replicate the functionality. When the player restarted, I saw a full screen black image with AIR in the upper left corner. After several retries, I would get the same black box with AIR in teh upper left corner and sometimes get the Windows START button in the lower left.

Sometimes I would get TWO players runining that had MediaSignage logo saying standby. But nothing ever happened after that. Maybe it is a permission thing? Not sure. Have full admin priv.'s

Tried pointing to executable with, and without, quotes:
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe and "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
nada

I could not get it to start the default calc.exe.

Air Studio 1.8.155
Air Player 1.8.155???
Windows Vista SP2

Hello,

We did all the testing with XPe and XP Pro as well as Ubuntu 9.04. All worked VERY well...
I am assuming you will not run the real Player with Vista ( which is very unstable for DS ).
And so, if you can, try this with the OS that you will use with your final DS roll out.

Also, was the SignageController running ? This will NOT work if the SignageController is not running.
You  may also need to reboot once for the new SignageController to take effect ....

Let us know,

David.

Yes, yes, I tried it all for several hours. Not smart enough to get it to work on Vista SP2.

You forced me to create an XP VMware virtual machine, install all the updates, download the beta studio and player and reboot the VM.

It worked in XP without any changes to the campaign configuration that did not work in Vista.

Now I can get to some testing. Where do want me to post any issues/bugs/recommendations on the beta?
