“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.
Spacial announced ages ago that some versions of SAM Broadcaster wouldn’t work on Windows 10. It’s mainly the 4.x.x versions of the software but we’d imagine it would be the same with the older 2.x.x/3.x.x versions.
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.
RadioDJ is tested working on Windows 10 with very few issues. We’ve used RadioDJ on Windows 10 for a while now and it works everytime we need it to play music.
“One user of RadioDJ recently reported his copy had been running for 24 months straight”
RadioDJ is very much the FUTURE of radio Automation software.
Once installed and working RadioDJ will perform like a star.
If you have any issues with RadioDJ then you can find help on the RadioDJ Community forums
