    I have the same problem, I think it´s a compatibility issue with Win8 CR.

  • Correct, Songsmith is not quite compatible with the Windows 8 preview yet.  We will address this when the release version of Windows 8 is good to go.

    Thanks for your interest in Songsmith!

  • Any news regarding RTM? I am running W8RTM and would love to use Songsmith on that platform. Any workaround for the error above until a new release? //Daniel

  • The problem has been identified and fixed, and a new version of Songsmith will be available soon (before Windows 8 general availability).

    Has the Academic Version been updated to 1.03?

  • Yes, the Academic Version has been updated to 1.03 (and Windows 8 compatibility) (not Windows RT).

    See http://research.microsoft.com/songsmith/teachers.html .

  • You can just download version 1.03 from:

    http://research.microsoft.com/songsmith/download.html

    The serial number you used previously will work fine for version 1.03.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, but glad that you'll still be able to run Songsmith!

  • I got Songsmith from my msdnaa but is only version 1.02 but I run Windows 8. We have no serial for it, how can I get the update to run it on my laptop? This is obtain from Devry University. Thanks In Advance!

  • Ditto. I got this from msdnaa and it would not install on Windows 8. There is no serial number or anything given upon receipt of the software. Version 1.03 installed much better. So what can we do when the six free hours is up? Can we supply an order number and agreement number to prove we got it legitimately? Can the serial be found within the secure download? Thanks as well.

  • Thanks ITAngel and raneyron for bringing this up, and sorry for the inconvenience.  We're getting the MSDNAA version updated ASAP, and we'll post back when it's available.

  • I know this is an old post, but I'm trying to install SongSmith.  I've just downloaded it from my Dreamspark portal.  I'm getting the same error.  Is the version on Dreamspark out of date?

  • Sounds like the version on Dreamspark is out of date.  Can you tell me the name of the setup (.msi) file that you downloaded?  It should have the version number in the file name.  If it's out of date, I'll look into getting it updated ASAP.  Sorry for the inconvenience!
