Stephen Adams I am trying to load bagpipe player onto a friends new laptop computer. He has Windows 10! We ran into a few problems, but when I asked his computer to check compatibility, the computer installed Windows service pack 2 and Bagpipe Player loaded. Everything looked correct, but when a tune is selected and loaded all we see is a black screen. We also get a message that says missing fonts. Also, every single code for the tune comes up one after another with a message that says the file cannot be found. Any idea where I can get the correct fonts for Bagpipe Player?
