Jonas Dannert Posted June 20, 2011 Report Share Posted June 20, 2011 Hi all, This is what we say about WATCHOUT 5 & Windows 7, 32- or 64-bit: ———————————————————————————————————- SOFTWARE/Operating system WATCHOUT 5 supports a 64-bit OS, but is a 32-bit application, like QuickTime and many codecs/drivers used in Windows. WATCHOUT don’t need or run any faster/better with more memory than 4 GB. If you have a system with more memory than that, and want to use all of the memory for other purposes, you’ll need a 64-bit OS. We recommend 32-bit Windows 7 SP1, Basic, Home Premium or Professional versions Latest QuickTime installed, 7.7.1 or newer: http://www.apple.com...ktime/download/ ———————————————————————————————————- Some other comments: There has always been a need to tweak a PC for stable media playback, and very much more so with Windows 7, especially 64-bit. There are many things that could be done to a WATCHOUT Display PC, to make it run more reliable & stable than a off-the-shelf PC. Like always having the latest BIOS, peripheral, graphic- and capture-card drivers installed. Here are a list with guidelines on how to achieve this: http://www.dataton.c..._turned_off.png http://www.dataton.c...eatures_off.jpg http://www.dataton.c...ng_list_2.0.pdf Implement the full list on one machine, test and verify playback, and then image the others from that PC. WATCHOUT is sold, mainly, as software only, this does not mean that it will run flawlessly on any combination of hardware, software, codecs and drivers. It is up to the PC supplier/builder to test and verify a machine for stable media playback. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
