Windows 7 or 8 ?

Post by neil_321 » Thu Oct 18, 2012 1:27 pm

Hi

I'm looking to get a new PC and by ordering now I have the option of Windows 7 or 8 - I have received TTS4 which will be installed on the new PC.

Will TTS4 work ok on the Windows 8 system or will I be an unofficial Beta tester !!

Many Thanks

Neil

I would go with the unofficial betatester :lol: :lol:

You could get windows 7 with the optional update to 8 (at small extra cost) as opposed to one or the other

then create partition on hard drive & make it dual boot.. Win 7 on one partition ..install Win 7 on the other partition & update it to Win 8 :) might work & you then get both options

Thanks for the reply - I see the upgrade to windows 8 from the microsoft website will not be a great deal of money (£15) - I think thats a good idea

Cheers Neil

Just a thought, if you a re a DIY computer person, might I suggest you get Windows 7 and get a BETA of Windows 8 and then use the free VMWare Player to install Windows 8 as a virtual machine that runs on the Windows 7 box.

Better be sure that the W8 update does not require that you uninstall W7. Some of the MS update programs require a working version installed on the PC and then it is removed during the update process. You may or may not be able to reuse the W7 activation key later on.

There have already been a fair number of posts about the unavailability of drivers. Sounds like you will have to wait for awhile. This is not uniquely a Tacx problem. To my knowledge, Tacx has never advertised that its software is W8 comptatible.

I'm running TTS4 on Windows 8 Pro 64 bit and It seems to be ok. There are some strange issues during install, but all seems to be sorted out automatically.

However I have not had any opportunity to really put TTS through it's paces yet with windows 8 so there may be problems I just have not come across yet.

Hi, I have just installed TTS 4.6 on av 5 years old NoteBook running W8 64 bits, I experience some problems With videoplayer (program fails when I want to go back to Select Window), I also have problems when I Select avatar, both problems are reported to Tacx, they have reported the problem to the Developers, I also experience that the program hangs, maybe I'm to quick going aroung selecting display modes during the ride, thinking to test it on W7.

I have my first ride based on my own GPS rides to day, very funny :lol:

Can you do a quick explanation about the 2 problems you got in W8 to me? either personal in PM (for more depth) or here cause i've not read about those issues before.

Specifically what happens? Have you read the manual on setting upon a User. If this is not working, I would send an email to support@tacx.com.

I get the User ID page, but after I complete required info, I get a message that it was not accepted (will get exact wording tonight). I have sent a message to support, but was taking a chance of obtaining an answer here!

Ok - First, the system does not save changes I make to Global settings (i.e. lbs vs kilos) and when I enter User ID info I get the message Trainer software has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available...

Anyone get this?
