Windows 11 feedback with NCS

Just thought I would provide some feedback regarding using Netcam Studio with Windows 11. A few weeks ago, my server failed, so I took the opportunity to buy a new one. Fresh install of Windows 10, and immediate upgrade to Windows 11, followed by a fresh install of Netcam Studio, not forgetting to set the service to “Delayed Start”, and disable all power saving settings and screen saver etc. Once I had added my 7 cameras (one Wi-Fi, 6 wired), I noticed it seemed to be smoother and better quality images / videos, even though I used identical settings to my previous install. Very occasionally, the Wi-Fi camera would disconnect (cheap camera), but would re-connect itself around 5-10 minutes later. So far, on Windows 11, I’ve only had it disconnect once, and it reconnected within 30 seconds. Overall it seems to run perfectly. I have Windows 11 set to take all updates automatically, and reboot automatically as and when needed (so little or no input required from myself). It’s been about a month now, no issues to report, and NCS seems to marry nicely with Windows 11. Hoping to upgrade to NCS v2 whenever that comes out :slight_smile: Keep up the good work @Henrik and team…!

Hi Tony,
Thank you very much for this valuable feedback and the sheering :slight_smile:
First, when writing this text Netcam Studio is not officially approved for Windows 11.
However, I have been running NCS on Windows 11 for about a year now and I agree that it seems to work very well with WIndows 11.
Thanks,
Henrik with team.

@Henrik Not sure if it makes any difference, but the computer used for NCS is only used for NCS. The only other installation is a remote access/control app, so I can access and maintain the system when away from home. An SSD for Windows, NCS, and the remote app. And a second normal large-capacity HDD for the library. I had experimented with multiple configurations in the past, but this way seems to work the best.

A week or so ago my computer failed to the extent that I had to purchase a new one. I took the opportunity to purchase a new printer and a NAS which I have yet to set up. I was unable to log in because I had forgotten my credentials the system told me my user name was taken (of course). A minor change and it was accepted. l have not been able to setup NCS although I am sure I did it when I purchased it which could have been as early as August 2016. That Windows 11 is not the problem solvesl one worry. I have 8 ONVIF cameras and when I browse, they are listed with their IP addresses. I have not been able to get further. l I believe that I have installed the latest NCS as I had been saving some files to a thumb drive. But that is proving more trouble than its worth so I have been not attempting to retrieve my credentials but purchasing new programs. I have tried the manual to no effect. Any suggestion that you have will be appreciated. The bad typing is mostly caused by the unfamiliar keyboard. Mostly

Hi,
I am not sure what the problems are but:
-make sure that you have downloaded and installed latest version of NCS 1.9.5.
-all prerequisites are installed.
-since the caneras support ONVIF use the tab for ONVIF Source when adding the cameras. Click on Browse and you will see the cameras in the listing.
-to find out the license number send an email to support@netcamstudio.com with information of which name it was registered under, email and whatever else that can help to find the licene number.

Just wanted you to know that ALL problems I was having regarding NetCam have been solved. The license issue seems that if I purchased in 2016 or 2017 that I would get an automatic upgrade in 2019 or in two years. But this morning I got the program to work. Perhaps it was because it viewed me initially as unlicensed,. I may actually get to use the additional cameras supported. I may actually use 12, Who knows down the road 16. ALL problems solved. Thanks for your assistance.
