(Related Topics: Removing Liveworship, Installing LiveWorship for Windows)

Please backup your entire media folder before updating.

FULL INSTALL: Double-click on the installer icon and follow the directions.

UPDATED APPLICATION: If you are only downloading an update, double-click on the installer icon and follow the directions. If a media library can not be located, you will be prompted to navigate to one or the option to create a new empty media library.

NOTE: LiveWorship requires installation of Apple's latest QuickTime release

AFTER INSTALLING, please see these directions for setting the permissions to "read & write" for the entire LiveWorship folder.

Enabling Screen 2

With a second screen or projector connected, pull the Apple menu to System Preferences and select Displays.
Select the Arrangements tab and make sure "mirror displays" is UNchecked.

If you do NOT see an "Arrangements" tab, click the "detect displays" button. If you still do not see an "Arrangements" tab, make sure that you have properly connected and turned on the second screen or projector. before continuing.

If you are using a Macintosh iBook or pre-Intel iMac:
Neither of these models were designed to have dual display (only mirroring of the desktop on both monitors). While not recommended or supported, some users have indicated they have found a way (a "hack") to allow an iBook or pre-Intel iMac to have dual screen functionality. MacBooks, MacBook Pro, PowerBooks, most PowerMacs and Intel-based iMacs have the ability to "turn off mirroring" so that you can have multiple display windows which allows LiveWorship to "present" on a second screen. In version 1.3, we have added the ability to present on the primary screen which would allow you to use LiveWorship in a limited capacity (the control interface will be hidden while presenting).

One of the advantages of using LiveWorship is that you can present a slide to the second screen while still seeing the LiveWorship control interface on your primary screen. In v1.3, we have added a floating window so that you can preview a presentation without a projector or second monitor. We also have the ability to display a presentation on the primary screen, but you will only be able to use the keyboard controls as the interface will be covered up by the presentation.

Your computer specifications may not allow a second screen to be used for displaying a presentation.

For maximum performance, we recommend setting the resolution of Screen 2 to 800x600 pixels. If you do not match the resolution settings within LiveWorship's Size Preference to the same resolution of your second screen display, LiveWorship will scale or perhaps letterbox your presentation.

If you are having difficulties, see our troubleshooting page for more directions.
