    Windows 10

    Hello

    It has begun: the roll out of Windows 10! ;-)

    Are there already some tests done with Pegasus running under Win 10 (Tech. preview)?

    I don't find any postings here about using W10 & Pmail. 

    I'm especially interested in Pegasus version 4.52 and W10 64 bit combination.

    Re: Windows 10

    Works great on my system.  I have W10 and Pegasus 4.7

    I think the only thing mentioned and it was the same for Windows 8 was that you needed to install Pegasus outside of c:\Program Files or c:\Program Files (86)

    Re: Windows 10

    It works OK in general. However, I have not managed to set it up as the default mail program. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Pmail 4.71 and Win10 Pro RTM

    OK. I wrote before properly testing it.  If you run WSSETUP.EXE from the PMAIL folder it works. It sets up the interface. Then you can register it as the default email program.

    I have it installed under Program Files (x86), seems to work ok. Any reason to consider moving it?

    Oops, turns out it's installed under c: not Program Files. (tried to delete this reply, not allowed)

    Re: Windows 10

    I'm also running Win 10, seems to work ok. Though I'm a bit concerned about Peg becoming an orphan program - is it still under active development?

    Re: Windows 10

    Thanks Brian. Guess the download page also provides a good indication -

     http://www.pmail.com/v47x.htm

    It's gonna be a sad day if Peg ever reaches EOL, with no replacements in sight...

    Re: Windows 10

    Not so great here! - I have a number of win10 machines using a networked setup of Pegasus Mail.

    All the instances of Pegasus on win10 repeatedly crash after about 5 minutes. Pegasus will continue to process mail, but as soon as you try to, say, read one email, down it goes......

    any ideas anyone?

    Submitting a crash dump might be helpful.  See info about the MiniDump extension in this post:

    Re: Windows 10

    I've installed 4.70 on Windows 10 64bit a month ago using the installer with default options. No any problems so far. I've managed to set it up as a default mailer using the standard windows tools.

    Re: Windows 10

    Invictus has a network install which changes the game when compared to a local install.  We've seen numerous reports of problem free operation on Win10 so I think troubleshooting needs to be on the "network" part.  Two things that immediately come to mind are permissions & power management (make sure Win10 isn't putting the NIC to sleep).

    I might be helpful to confirm the type of network install.  The original post indicates mail is downloading fine which makes me think there are local installs of Pegasus Mail and the mailboxes are on one machine rather than a single multi-user install.

    I am interested in your comment about ensuring the NIC does not get shutdown. I cannot find an option in Win 10 to turn this on/off.  But I have been seeing this kind of problem for some time. I was letting my machine go to "sleep" overnight and apon waking the machine up, the first check/fetch mail always failed with some kind of Winsock error. My solution has been to shutdown every night instead of selecting Sleep.

    Re: Windows 10

    Martin,

    I don't use Win10 so am just assuming that the power management is similar as in Win7 where the Power Management tab of the NIC properties (accessed via Device manager) contains an option allowing the PC the shut the device down to save power.  I have it disabled on my laptop and randomly experience the failed connection message in Peg when I wake from sleep.  It sounds like yours occurs much more consistently than mine.  I have not paid attention to occurrences when on battery vs. powered so don't know if that plays a role. 

    I don't know whether the setting in Power Management has anything to do with Sleep mode or if it just means the PC will shut down the NIC after a period of no traffic.

    FWIW, I sleep my laptop overnight but shutdown Peg when I call it a night.
