Windows 7: Music writing program

Music writing program

Hi. I have recently bought 'Finale Songwriter' On trying to use it on computer withWin7 there is not joy. There is too much to report of all what is wrong but it works when installed on a computer with XP. However, a couple of problems are: 1. that after writing about 12 notes, on playback it misses out 4 or more of the first notes. And 2. the cursor just stops on a note and a jagged sound occurs. So what could the problem be, please. Cheers.

Hi Ali,

Are you running as a standard user, or as a user with administrative privileges (right-click, select Run as administrator)?

See if anything on their support site helps: Support

Hi. Thanks for reply. I tried what you said. I thought at first that was what it was? But then it played-up again. Also, I looked on that site you gave. Also, I have done on SongWriter Forum - and I left a question. But I have had no joy so far. This is why I posted on this Forum because the program goes OK on XP but not on my computer which has Win7. I have looked in places via Control Panel and all seems OK? Can you think of places to check. Could it be one of the cards is not up to what it should be?

Best Program for Writing Help Files?
Hi, I have been asked to design help files for someone for their program that they are developing. I have been using HTML Help Workshop, but it seems to be badly designed/too complicated to use. What program should I use to create these help files? It should be a free program. Thanks! :geek:
