Hey Kalejin, this is an excellent program. Thanks so much for making it.

I am, however, having an issue that I can't seem to fix, or find anyone else that experiences it. DC+SB will NOT allow me to add any counters or sounds if my .NET Framework is updated to the newest version (currently 4.5.2). It works great if it's on 4.5.

The problem is, I need 4.5.2 to run other programs, like games. Have you ever heard of this problem? Its a real pain as I'd love to use the Death Counter for really, any playthrough.

A little more information which might help? Same issue occurs with SubAlerts. If I have 4.5.2 .NET installed, I can't click any edit button which allows me to change graphics or sounds. But it works perfectly on 4.5. Same as DB+SC.

I've been stumped by this problem for, months. Since I can find no one to help, I've simply just learned to work around it by compromising what I can and cannot use for certain games. I'm hoping someone out there in the Cohhilition might have some advice. Thanks!

Update: It's working! I don't know what fixed it but I was changing multiple things on my computer this weekend (installing/uninstalling, etc.) and opened it just for the heck of it and it was working. Who knows, but thanks anyway for a good program and great support!

Well thank you IdleInertia
I am glad that it works for you now.
Sad that I don't know what the issue was

just curious if there is a way to have the soundboard muffle, or mute background or peripherals, because i have pandora running in the background of my stream, its hard to hear my sound clips while music is playing ....

It's a good idea, however there really does have to be a "healthy" balance between music, sound effects, and in game sound. Finding that sweet spot is tricky

It runs fine on my Windows 10. You may want to try running it in comparability mode.

I have the exact same error on my Win7 x64, so it is not a Win10 issue.

Could both of you please let me know what versions of .NET Framework do you have installed?

Well, in Windows 10 the default .NET Framework is 4.6 (it does not let you install 4.5) but you can also enable 3.5, which I did.
I've reinstalled DC+SB and run it (1) without compatibility, (2) with Win 8 compatibility and (3) with Win7 compatibility and still have the same initialisation error.

I blame MS with their stupid .NET Framework versions and compatibility issues...

Kalejin, great looking program here! Exactly what I'm looking for to minimize running bigger programs in the background that I can trigger samples from, but offer tons of other features that I'm not using essentially wasting CPU.

What would make it perfect for my use is if it could accept input from a midi controller. I use a Behringer CMD. It's nice and simple, but offers me a massive amount of customization should I want to get additional modules for it.

Being able to use the extra buttons I'm not using to trigger sound samples, and to control death counters, etc. would be incredibly useful for my stream. I don't know how much work would be involved in adding this functionality though, so if it seems too much that's perfectly understandable :) I'm going to see if I can find my own workaround in the meantime.

Unfortunately that would be really hard since I don't have that device and after a quick googling I didn't find any way to capture it's input.

If you are replying to Nobodyhells and MageGoesTwitch's problem, I forgot to post it here but the problem ended up being a missing Windows media player library, that is used to play sounds. More info in the first post under Known issues.
