After first installing chromanator gold I ran and used it several times with no problemns. I work on a dual monitor system and originally chromanator was running in a window smaller than 1 monitor, so I chose to change the screen size to the max available. Now when chromanator starts It gives me the usual non standard screen message, then all I can see is a horizontal oblong with half the chromanator logo in the top left half of this. I tried re-installing, but this had no effect. Does any one have any ideas?

Can I also request that CSB go back to the way the program filled the screen in the pre-release version?

Could you try removing your preferences folder (in My Documents - called 'Chromanator Files') and then installing the latest version of Chromanator (1.0.4).

Let us know if that doesn't fix the problem.

All was alright but yesterday I started the 1.0.3 version and a error message appear :"There has been an internal error and the error log "bla bla bla" has been saved". When I press start, another message appear :"Property not found #stream" and the first message reappear like a....vicious circle tard . I have intalled the 1.0.4 version, uninstall all the program, delete the "Chromanator Files" directory in my document but...the problem still here.

If you have an idea...

Sorry for taking a while to respond. I did what you suggested and the software is now running. I just have to try to get it fill my screens.
