iTunes does not support Windows 10 modern watches over tablets and newer laptops


Since Windows 8, there is a new mode called available standby connected standby (Windows 8), InstantGo (Windows 8.1) or modern (Windows 10) from the previous day.

Tablets with Windows and newer laptops use modern sleep every time instead of old standby mode when firstly, it turns off the screen and after a while CPU turnes off (S3 mode AFAIK).

Computer works now similar to a phone in a Pocket, you can listen to music or get a call (Skype).

Here is the description for developers on Miscrosoft MSDN:

Developers need to make their applications compatible with a modern Eve, otherwise application does not work while the unit is in standby modern.

There is a Microsoft Groove app installed music on my book of Surface with 10 Windows, he can play DRM iTunes media, and continues to play when the screen turns off. iTunes seems to be incompatible legacy applications because it stops to play my music if I let laptop intact for 5 minutes.

I tried to explain this to a phone Apple support, but they told me that this isn't a problem with iTunes but Windows and I need to get in touch with Microsoft instead of Apple.

I can't use my subscription Apple same music in music Groove as a solution because it is unable to read the DRM from iTunes m4p files, of course it can not directly access cloud Apple music too.

Is it possible to transmit this information to Apple?

I don't understand why Apple let iTunes must be installed on Windows 8 + because actually it works terrible.

For example, it can not switch audio speakers headphones and vice versa (while other applications that correctly), there are also some problems of video output, sometimes also the iTunes window receive a second bar tiny minimize / closing maximise controls, also the search field sometimes loose the keyboard input.

Support staff does not normally deal in development issues, so it is quite likely that simply, they did not understand the question.  To report it directly to Apple, use the comments link:

When you send feedback, try to be as clear and objective as possible.

iTunes has a huge population of Windows users, so I don't know that apple is interested.

  • Why ATI radeon xpress 200 does not support windows 7?

    I have 1 GB of ram and Intel 3.00 GHZ and ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 processor on the graphics card. The graphics are very low resolution after installing windows 7, and when I tried to install the graphics drivers of my motherboard CD, windows displays the message "WINDOWS DRIVERS FOUND, BUT YOUR SYSTEM DO NOT SUPPORTED.".
    I have searched on the discussion and found it does not support my graphics card. So, if I have installed another (say nvidea 512 MB) graphics card it will then support windows 7?

    Depends on if you have a laptop, if so you can not move the graphics.

    If a desktop computer you buy a graphics card that supports supported win7 and for example the type of connection your motherboard has PCI or AGP

    The IMO 1 GB of ram is much too low for win7, you should watch 4 GB (if your system supports)

    Hey Buddy

    What to say first of all that you will get not the official drivers for this laptop for Windows 7 or Vista.
    This laptop is oldie and I doubt that pilots will be released.

    By reading this forum threads I've noticed that most of the user using the driver on Win 7 OS Vista.
    Maybe you should google for Conexant AC97 Vista driver and should try a Vista on Windows 7 driver

  • Dell Inspiron N5110 does not support Windows 10?

    I'll try once more to make this post to cause the previous, it never went live.

    I have a 3 years old Dell Inspiron N5110 i5 / 8GB ram/Nvidia/Win 7 home premium and I am very pleased with his performance and build quality. Yesterday, I tried to book a copy of Windows 10 and after struggling to make the pop icon in my taskbar, I managed to get it jump.

    When I clicked the Get Windows 10 icon to get the reserve he came with this message...

    "BIOS is not supported.

    I have 2 laptops more than 2-3 years older than my N5110 and both are qualified and reserved for the update...

    I'm running the newest BIOS A11, all updates windows and the most recent drivers for this machine and wanted to ask you:

    Is it me or other users of N5110 this message?

    Any other update BIOS I is missing to get sound to work?

    Dell will solve this problem, until July 29 and when Windows 10 go live?

    A formal response or if there is an official link to Dell for this question would be appreciated.

    Just update your BIOS to A11, waiting for some time (a few hours or a day) and everything will be Ok.

    It works but not supported by Dell.

    Thanks to you all.

    Whenever I try to install vcenter on windows server 2008 R2, vcenter says it only supports windows 2008 Server, 2003 and XP pro but the docs...

    Say that it supports. I did a lot of googling and found plenty of tutorials on how to get it to support it, but only get it to use a 32-bit db connector and a few other things, but nothing annoys me after initial installation.

    Generally, you will get this message if you have installed roles such as "DC" on the server.

  • Graphics card does not support Windows Aero?

    Hello world

    today I received the message telling me (after that I played a few hours) that my pc has problems of performance due to the Aero and it offers me to activate Windows Basic.

    I have this card (Nvidia GTX 750 Ti) for 2 months now and it never gave me problems so I'm wandering if it could be a hardware problem or just windows that ran a test on the graphics card all the 'X' days for the Aero compatibility.

    I ran the fix tool and it said that my GPU is not compatible with Aero (never had problems of performance in games activities or other).

    So I ask: is this a real problem? Can I ignore it and run Aero or it will cause physical problems in the future? Can it be a hardware failure or something similar?

    Thank you.

    The card should manage easily Aero and its effects. Go to this site where you can download and run the latest drivers...

    The message should go away... :-)

  • 12.1.1 Easy Install workstation does not support Windows 10 education?

    When I jumped into an ISO of the education of 10 Windows, Easy Install Windows 10 detected but asked me to choose between family and professional edition. On the other hand, when I pop in a company of 10 Windows ISO, Easy Install correctly recognizes as Windows 10 Enterprise edition.

    Hi Benjamin,

    I apologize for the error. Easy to install for versions of 1511 was fixed so that 1511 ISOs distinguished to be Win10 (before this fix, the ISO 1511 files was unknown easy install), but ISO 1511 education files are incorrectly recognized to be multiple-version as you can see. This problem still exists, we have a bug to follow him.

    We intend to support the latest version of RedStone Win10 once it is released. I'll push the development team to solve this problem of recognition of education of 1511 at the same time.

    Kind regards


  • VMware Tools * STILL * does not support Windows 95

    I'm tired of this.  I reported this problem for several versions of VMware.  Guys actually you check operating systems, you say that you support?

    Good, our guys installer described workaround for me:

    1. download and install the Microsoft Windows Installer Redistributable for Win9x:

    2. Mount the ISO image (winPre2k.iso in the folder of installation of VMware Workstation) tools. (Or just choose "VM > install VMware Tools" in the menu, which will automatically mount the image).

    3. If autorun is enabled, it will trigger setup.exe, which will break.  Ignore this.  Right click on the CD drive, select 'Open' and then double-click on the file "VMware Tools.msi".
