514: Running Groovy Music on Windows Vista and 7
The three products in the Sibelius Groovy Music range -- Groovy Shapes, Groovy Jungle and Groovy City -- all rely on Adobe/Macromedia Director technology, which is currently incompatible with Windows Vista and 7.
When you run one of the Groovy products on Windows, you will see a message that informs you Macromedia Projector has stopped working, and Groovy will not run.
To solve this, you can run Groovy in compatibility mode:
- Click the Start button
- Select Computer from the menu to see your computer's disk drives
- Navigate to C:\Program Files\Sibelius Software\Groovy Shapes (or Groovy Jungle or Groovy City)
- Right-click the Groovy application icon and select Properties from the context menu
- In the dialog that appears, choose the Compatibility tab, switch on Run this program in compatibility mode for: checkbox and select Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5) from the drop-down list
- NOTE: If Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5) doesn't work try the Windows XP (Service Pack 2) option.
- Click OK
Now run Groovy Music as normal from its icon in the Start menu. You only need to do the above procedure the first time you run Groovy Music -- thereafter you can simply run the program each time from its icon in the Start menu.
