Saw this in among the search terms used on this website recently.
“Can’t get SAM Broadcaster to install on Windows 10”
We’re guessing this person was trying to install a really old version of the software.
We tried to install SAM 4.x.x on Windows 10 recently as part of a test after the anniversary updates & it wouldn’t get past the database setup part of the install.
So not only will SAM 4.x.x not work on Windows 10 the database structure won’t work/install on newer database servers (MySQL)
If you’re one of those users struggling to get an old copy of SAM Broadcaster to install on Windows 10.
“Forget OLD copies of SAM Broadcaster they never worked properly no matter what PC we tried them on”
The 4.x.x versions of SAM were just awful and used to crash/freeze a lot.
Just download and install RadioDJ FREE radio automation software.
“One user of RadioDJ recently reported his copy of RadioDJ v1.8.2 had been running for 30 months straight”
RadioDJ is very much the FUTURE of radio Automation software.
Once installed, setup & working RadioDJ will perform like a star it works flawlessly for us.
If you have any issues with RadioDJ then you can find help on the RadioDJ Community forums
