[BUG]Windows 8 and the Title plugin

by blamauci » Mon Jul 02, 2012 11:29 pm

Dear Xsplit community. I just tried to set a title in Xsplit while in Windows8 RP(x64)

But when I try to do it the Title Plugin Settings screen just freezes and I can't do anything in it.

I looked a bit into this and it seems that Microsoft is shipping a heavily crippled version off Adobe Flash Player 11.2 with it's IE10 off Windows 8.

When I try to remedy this by installing the(Retail) version off 11.2 flash I get a error.http://puu.sh/Fpi6

So That's when I tried to manually download Adobe Flash Player thinking that would be the case.
It gives me another error telling me I already have Adobe Flash 11.2 Windows 8 release bla bla bla.

I know it's not your fault for Microsoft shipping this version off flash but I do think its something that could be addressed quite easily.

If you need more info I am happy to provide it.

Yea, I was just about to post this. The Consumer Preview works fine, but like you said, the RP have Flash integrated into IE10.

edit: This does in fact affect all configure windows, not just the title field.

No you don't support it now but you are looking for a focus group for testing on windows 8. meanwhile I have found this issue and I like to report it.

Lot's off people are going to install the RP of windows 8 just to try it out.
And they can get the same bug as me which forced me to go back to windows 7.

Maybe you guys could make a small FAQ with already known issues for windows 8.

It would help the focus group too.

Windows 8 will be available within 2-3 months. Would be wise to look into it before then :)

I agree. Sure it's not released right now and windows 8 is subject to change. but seeing its an RC(Release Preview is just a flashy name for Release Candidate) and the history off microsoft and RC's not much is going to change right now.

Would be wise to get the focus group started real quick and using all already submitted bugs to the fullest.

if so far the only bug is that the plugins aren't working than thats an issue with internet explorer flash in windows 8, they probably changed the location of it so its not working properly.
