Subject: Tech: Windows8 compatibility for Evolution Aud
From: asirovedout
Date: 11 Aug 15 - 11:13 AM

I've been using a freebie copy of the Evolution Audio-Lite midi editor/sequencer almost every day for 15 years.

Under Windows7 and earlier systems it runs in what appears to be a Window3.1 window, and I now find that it won't install on a 64bit Windows 8 laptop.

I use it for learning, arranging & playing song tunes, and I prefer its mouse&piano-roll user interface rather than a score&keyboard-based program.

I'd like to continue using this program because it's so familiar, and because if I migrate to a different program I'll be forced to re-save over 600 ".SNG" files as ".MID" files (probably losing some of the info), and saving the accompanying text in separate files.

Any ideas where I might obtain a Windows8-compatible version (which I'd be willing to pay for if it was the full program), or a very similar product?

Thanks for reading this

@

Does Windows 8 let you run a Virtual XP machine that would have the windows compatibility you need?

Or try installing Windows XP or earlier on a Virtualbox (free of charge) Virtual machine hosted on Windows 8?

Thanks for the suggestions treewind.
I don't have regular access to a Windows8 machine yet, so I'm still looking around for feasible solutions.
A virtual XP machine would be ideal. Thanks, Bob

From Microsoft:

  • Support for Windows 8 ended on January 12, 2016, and support for Windows 8.1 will end on January 10, 2023.

  • Microsoft 365 Apps is no longer supported on Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 after they have reached their end of support dates. To avoid performance and reliability issues, we recommend that you move to a newer version of Windows.

    A lot of software was not able to be used after Win10 was released, so you'd best keep the Win8 you're using running until you can find a new program to load to and convert your files.

    The OP said that Evolution Audio-Lite does not run in Win 8.

    One suggestion was WinXP in a virtual machine such as VirtualBox, which could presumably run in Win 10 (I don't know).

    09:27 guest today doesn't give us much information, except that they posted in this thread with the Windows8 name in the title so I presume they're operating on old machine they've managed to not update (but guessing they may be forced soon). The OP was going from Win7 to Win8; what a tangle of operating systems.
