Installing LiveWorship Windows 2000/XP
(Related Topics: Removing Liveworship, Installing LiveWorship for Macintosh)
Win XP SP2 users: You may see a Windows Security Warning dialog box warning you that The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software? The publisher may be listed as: Unknown Publisher. Windows XP Service Pack 2 verifies the authenticity of files downloaded from the web by checking that they have a digital signature attached. Live Worship does NOT have a digital signature.
FULL INSTALL: Double-click on the .exe installer icon and follow the directions.
UPDATED APPLICATION: If you are only downloading an update, you would have needed to have a previously installed full version of LiveWorship. To install the updated application, double-click on the .exe installer icon and follow the directions.
NOTE: Requires installation of Apple's latest QuickTime release
Windows Font Smoothing
(Improved font display quality in Windows is turned off by default)
Right-click on your Desktop (not on an icon, but in a blank area) and select Properties

Select the checkbox to Smooth Edges
Windows XP: There is a drop down box to choose ClearType enhanced font smoothing
Apply the new settings and close the "Appearance" window
(Improves text display)
In the Start Menu, select Control Panel
In the Control Panel window, open the QuickTime control panel
Under the Advanced tab, select "Safe mode (GDI only)" in the Video section
Enabling Screen 2
Right-click on your Desktop (do not click on an icon, but in a blank area)
In Windows XP, select "Properties" and then select the Settings tab
In Windows Vista, select "Personalize" and then select "Display Properties"
(You can also change the display settings in Vista by going through the Control Panel. Click Start, then Control Panel, click on the Personalization icon (in the Classic view). If you are not using the Classic view, under the Appearance and Personalization heading, select Adjust Screen Resolution.)
When your second monitor ( or projector ) is plugged in, you should see two desktops labeled "1" and "2"
Click on the box labled number 2
Select the checkbox "Extend my Windows Desktop onto this Monitor" (by default, this box is not checked)
Apply the new settings and close the "Display Preferences" window
If you do not have the ability to connect a second display, versions 1.3+ adds the ability to present on the primary screen although you will not be able to see the control interface (it will be covered up by the presentation). You will have to use the keyboard to control the presentation or press ESC to end the presentation. See displaying a presentation for more information.
For maximum performance, we recommend setting the resolution of Screen 2 to 800x600 pixels. You will also need to make sure that this setting is also set inside LiveWorship's Size Preference.
If you are having difficulties, see our troubleshooting page for more directions.
