Just wanted to check is it only Windows 7 and above or is there a version that will work with XP?

We don't have any Windows XP installations to try it out on but I don't think there is anythign that would prevent it working.

Thanks. When I try to install it from the exe file it says only windows 7 and above. So I guess it doesn’t.

Ah, okay. Are you tied to using Windows XP?

Feb 12, 2018

iPad or XP at present but it may be an excuse to change!

Alastair, may be teaching to suck eggs - but is your XP 64 or 32 bit because the install files need to match, while the 32 bit windows install should work on 64bit as well - the 64 bit install file will def have the hump on 32bit windows.

I was 32 bit but it says it needs Win 7 and above to work. I upgraded to Win 10 to solve the problem (and give other problems not related to Audiomoth!!) Audio moth app working well so far. Thanks

Great. Let us know if you have any other issues or suggestions.

  • Hi, I have purchased an AudioMoth to detect the ultrasonic sound emitted by bats. And I would like to know how can I detect i) count number of bats ii) bats' flying direction.   I am doing a project to contextualize bat data through different actuators of Arduino. Using LEDs, speakers, motors, etc to visualize bat data. For example, if frequency = 45kHz, LED will light up; if more bats, the motor will spin faster, etc. How can I do that? And can I transfer the data live, and wireless, using a raspberry pi and upload it to the cloud? Again, how can I achieve that?   Finally, is there any guide to manipulating the bat ultrasonic wav. file to human audible sound or visualize through spectrogram? Any tutorial for that? I am trying to use Adobe Audition.   Many Thanks!
  • Hi, I just wanted to check that the AudioMoth should stay with the switch in the USB/OFF position when using the configuration app? Even when you press "Configure AudioMoth" in the app? Then when ready to turn on in the field, change the switch to CUSTOM? Thanks.
  • Hello, I used to record birds (video+sound) as a hobby in my garden using a raspberry pi computer (+ a camera and a microphone attached to the Pi) and a motion detection software. I stumbled upon the audiomoth, ordered one and I wish to record birds for now. What set up should I use? Any advises welcome... Thank you.
