If you are running the developer preview of Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Loin, you may have problems getting Sparkbooth to run on that operating system. It looks like there is an issue with Adobe AIR and the "Automatic Graphics Switching" feature in Lion. Here is what you need to do:

  1. Go to System Preferences
  2. Select Energy Saver
  3. Disable "Automatic Graphics Switching"
  4. Install Adobe AIR 3.1 or later from http://get.adobe.com/air
  5. Install Sparkbooth from download page
  6. And that is it!

Minor maintenance is now available. Changes include:

  • Fixed application updater
  • Start button will automatically shrink to fit label within video display

  • Online indicator on About tab

Windows 8 is currently due to be released on October 2012. If your computer runs Windows 7, it will be able to run Windows 8 since it looks like Microsoft made some operating system improvements in resource usage. I installed Windows 8 and Sparkbooth on a Dell laptop, so I can confirm Sparkbooth will run on Windows 8. Here is how you install Sparkbooth in Windows 8:

  1. From the Start screen, select the Desktop
    Starting desktop from Windows 8
  2. After the Desktop has launched, press the Internet Explorer icon in the taskbar, and go to downloads
    Windows 8 Desktop
  3. Click the Download button to get the Sparkbooth installer and run it.
  4. And that is it! You will see a Sparkbooth icon installed on the Start screen, which you can use to start Sparkbooth.
