    Hey guys,

    I have been using Quick Show 3 for 12 months and has been great. Love it. I would keep getting notifications to upgrade and I kept ignoring them.

    Eventually, I caved in and installed the new version. Ever since then I have been experiencing issues with Virtual DJ sound output which I am guessing it's from quickshow 4 as it has also started to say it requires more power to run properly.

    I have uninstalled 4 and reinstalled 3 and now it won't let me! It says that the upgrade was MANDATORY. How is this so it it actually worked perfectly?

    I really need to get Quick Show 3 back on. I don't want to carry two laptops to my gigs. It worked just fine before.

    Anyone help me there?

    CAn you explain he issues with "sound output" ? I mean.. thats a rather vague description.

    Ok yes... so what it seems like is that the CPU is perhaps being used too much by quickshow and causes the audio to be disrupted. I am using Virtual DJ 8 and Quickshow on the same laptop. It usually happens 3 or 4 times in a a 2 hour session... yesterday, I had a 5 hour session and didn't happen once. That could be because I have removed all quickshow software. I didn't have a laser show on yesterday. The sound is hard to describe but it's like the cpu can't handle it and slows things down.. the audio makes a skipping sound but also like its slowing down.. lasts about 2 or 3 seconds and then is back to normal until it happens again.

    So under Ver 3, never happened.. while it's uninstalled... never happened. Only when Ver 4 is running. As I mentioned, Ver 4 also tells me that things would run better if I had more RAM etc.. so clearly the new version requires more computing power to run on a laptop as the same time as another program, so why can't I revert back to a perfectly working software Ver 3?
