Experiences using Cardbox and Windows 10
I am very interested in experiences of Cardbox users, after they upgrade their system to Win 10. Even when you have no trouble, write it here! For everyone it is good to read experiences of people who had no trouble with it.
In my case: The preview versions (in a virtual machine) did not generate any problem. However, after updating my normal working laptop, Cardbox Client did not work any more. Because certain Windows settings, which the upgrade did not respect, Cardbox could not start in Windows 10. After some hours troubleshooting, the Cardbox problems I could fix.
Because Win 10 did not satisfy me at all, I roll back my win 7 system. After several hours troubleshooting again, that works as before.
Windows 10 has been installed. Installed the client went to your website and can look into the database. I have some other problems ( for example youtube is a problem )..
I have upgraded from 7 to 10. I have found only one issue and that is the format has been slightly altered and some data has been moved out of line. I will now have to re-line it if I want a tidy screen. I would add my data base is pretty basic as data bases go.
One other issue I have found is with photographs. I have been downloading photos from my camera in .nef format and adjusting them and adding tags etc in Nikon ViewNX2 and then organising them using Windows picture gallery. I have had no problems until I upgraded but now I find that Windows Gallery does not pick up the tags and set the date of modifying a photo as the date it was taken.
I upgraded my Win8.1 system to Win10 and I agree with Bert: this is certainly not an improvement. On the contrary. The only things that are obvious is that Windows seems to take complete control over whatever you want to do. My PC looked like a smartphone and I have been busy for hours trying to get rid of the most annoying things.
Finally I had to reinstall Win8 after which more trouble started, again in the updates. The CPU was constantly 50% or more due to a looping update process (Windows modules installer).
So, save yourselves a lot of trouble and don't touch Win10!
I've made it: my first pc is to W10. Thanks to the free Classic Shell that saved this all for me. Normal working start menu again!
I attempted to realign my data in the format file and found when I attempted to save the adjusted format that a notification appeared to say I had overlapping. I was unable to find any overlapping but did not save the format file. In view of the major trouble with photographs and now finding a false overlapping report I rolled back to Win 7. The format now has returned to alignment and does not give any warnings of overlapping. I await to see when I down load new photos whether they are re-dated. But i am concerned if these basic errors are occurring what other errors are there which are not so obvious and may not immediately appear.
I'm interested which fonts you use in that format. In fields, but also the generic font (see format properties, appearance).
(...) but this way also reports in a lot of cases false overlap messages.
I use Arial font in both. I thought it might be something to do with fonts used by win 10 but could not understand why it should give a false overlap report.
Hello, I have just installed Windows 10 - Cardbox all works but it crashed a lot. I have been told this could be the DDE or Dynamic Data Exchange. If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it.
Please, write what you do when it crashes and the exact error message.
Hi Bert, thanks for your reply.
Is it possible to use Cardbox on a Windows 10 tablet, like Microsoft Lumia 550? I consider to buy one. Has someone experience with it?
No, not possible as well as most other Windows software.
Perhaps it is good to add these things:
Just read surface 3 + 4 are (Intel) alternatives for a notebook. So in that case it seems possible to install Windows software/Cardbox.
I started with Cardbox before Windows! It's a great pity it has not been updated. However I recently purchased a Windows Pro Surface with MS10, was disappointed with the machine but Cardbox worked fine. I am not a techie. The MS machine was given to others and I now have the new Dell laptop, 12.5" screen, very light, 10hrs at least and with no bezzel as such, small. Cardbox works fine. MG
