Not working on Win 8.1


Hi murkjohansen,

I installed proverb on a Win 8.0 machine last summer and it seemed to work pretty well. I've since upgraded to ver 8.1 and am having problems. Here are two that I've identified:
  1. "+" and "-" keyboard keys have no affect on scroll speed. The functionality that these keys provide is critical to the use of the program and I know of no alternative or workaround.
  2. script files are being corrupted at some point. (after opening program and file, saving, and reopening I believe - but needs further testing.
Please advise of any solutions that come to mind. I'd love to hear back from you as soon as you can make the time.

Thanks for the use of your program. I wish it continued to work for me as it had.

I now have Windows 8.1 installed. I will investigate the issue as soon as I can.

Great! I appreciate the prompt reply.

I forgot to mention that I also tried running the program in compatibility mode. Unfortunately, the auto compatibility checker crashed and neither versions 8.0 or 7 worked when set manually .

I look forward to learning of you findings.

After spending some more time with the program, I am less confident about Proverb being the source of my file corruption. I need more time to identify the source.

Would still really like speed up "+" and slow down "-" to work though.
