What are the system requirements to install DRS2006 V4? It will be nice to find out what are the minimum and the recommended requirements.


Thank you

Hi DRS 2006 does not need much. We do not have any old PC here where it did not run. But we will do further tests. Of course all can be found shortly on http://www.radioautomation.com. At the moment I would say:

Minimum System Requirements:
Operating system: Windows XP
Resolution: 1280 x 800
CPU: 1,6 GHz
Memory: 1 GB
Disk space: 100 MB
Sound card: required

Recommended:
Operating system: Windows 7, Windows 8
Resolution: 1920 x 1200
CPU: 2 GHz Duo or Quad Core
Memory: 2 GB
Disk space: 100 MB + enough space for all your music files (also external discs or network)
Sound card: professional quality

Ok, I got it running okay on the minimum requirements. No problem. But like any software, if you want it smooth, take at least a dual core.

Mark,

I tried loading the demo last night on my XP computer, and got the 'Windows has to close screen. I uninstalled and deleted the Demo folder, downloaded it again, and got the same result. Then, I used that zip file an put it on my Windows 8 computer. Same result. It tries to initialize, then gives me the Windows screen.

Please delete these folders after deinstalling:
C:\ProgrammData\DRS2006V4
and
C:\User\Yourname\AppData\Local\DRS_Systemtechnik

Then reinstall.

Sounds good Mark, i had the same problems like Stashu last night moving from DRS2006V4 Setup - Demo (1.0.100.42) to DRS2006V4 Setup - Demo (1.0.100.45) as i wanted to try out the plugins as well.

Also when changing the skin i received Windows has to close screen error. Also if playing a cart and navigate from it to a different cart when you get back to the previous cart you can not stop it as is not showing anything playing. By pressing F2 again will start the same cart again so now you have 2 running.

I was going to lunch a full install on a new PC as we need to move from our existing DRS 2006 Enterprise Edition (XP) to the new version fast, do we need to pay for the Full upgrade or Sublicense upgrade? I was under the impression that existing DRS2006 PRO users will receive the DRS 2006 V4 free and only pay for the plugins and other modules. I really want to make sure there will be no problems running the new version on a production environment. Running the full version will give me more flexibility and understanding of how V4 operates.

Thank you,

Mike

Hi,

I will look into this. We cannot really reproduce this, so you gotta describe the problem as good as possible.

Well, this is a totally new DRS 2006 which took a long time to develop. Also I am not the only one working on it, so we think that $69 for an upgrade is not really too much to ask for. If you have any DRS 2006 version, you can order a sublicense.

I will upload a new version in a second. Not sure if all is fixed, but some things are.

Mark,

Before the problem above, I had a chance over the weekend to play with V4 Build 42. It's phenomenal! Once again, I'm loving radio. Thanks! You've got a winner.
I'll do your suggestions, and load the new demo. Probably buy the Upgrade this coming weekend.

Great! We are happy to get all your input now to get it done. We are really happy that we are so close now! So let's go for it! We have so many great things coming up....

There seems to be a problem installing both: the demo and the full version. Please be sure to deinstall the demo and delete the 2 folders before installing a new version. We will sort these last things out next days. We promise....

If you report a problem or crash, please try to be as accurate as possible so we can somehow reproduce it and debug the software. At the moment we can't see any problem like mentioned above on our test systems. Even a 1,6 GHz Atom on XP is running fine. So it is very importend for us that you are as accurate as possible. It can be a virus scanner, a theme we are using or maybe something else we don't know yet.

Thank you!

And Stashu: "What goes around comes around" :)

Ok steps one and two done :D

I can see how removing the directory's will help (did not delete \AppData\Local\DRS_Systemtechnik) last night however i will make that change today and install the new version you uploaded.

We need to manualy delete the directory:
C:\User\Yourname\AppData\Local\DRS_Systemtechnik

and also ???
C:\User\Yourname\AppData\Local\DRS2006V4 <------ (this is where the plugins get installed)

No, the plugins are at C:\Program Files\DRS 2006 - The.........

Well we are trying to find out why the software crashes on your PC. There must be something special since we have no problems here on our PCs and also the beta testers did not report anything. So any hint would help before we spread it to the world. THX

For some who need to delete the C:\User\Yourname\AppData\Local\DRS_Systemtechnik manually while installing the new demos Show hidden files has to be enabled. WIN 7 PRO example:

Yes, please do this so we can find out why it does not work on your PC. Please deinstall older versions first in your control panel.
