I've just intalled the new demo and it says when i tried to launch it
"The ordinal 1334 could not be located in dynamic link library IML32.dll"
then it says "This application cannot start as it cannot create needed files. There may not be enough free disk space"
I have more than 100 GB of free space !

Could you help me, i'm very interesting by buying chromanator but want to try it first...

That's not an error we've encountered before. Can you please give us some more information about your system? The more information you can provide the easier it will be to track down the problem.

Does the user have write access to the Chromanator folder?

BTW, if you really have your cpu that much overclocked then why?

- All my system is watercooled with a koolance so i don't think it is a problem with that.

- I don't use AOL.

- I tried with the first one and the second one but not the extrenal drive

Looking at your website (btw pretty cool site) its clear that you use Flash/Shockwave. I've found a couple of forums which have had the same problem with Macromedia Projectors (which is what our program uses)

http://www.directorforum.de/viewtopic.php?p=111450
http://www.mail-archive.com/lingo-l@penworks.com/msg10954.html

It seems that there might be a conflict between Chromanator and Shockwave, or there is an older dynamic link library version of IML32.dll somewhere on your system.

Perhaps try uninstalling Shockwave, and Chromanator. Install Chromanator, and try running it again. We suspect something is corrupt on your system somewhere.

Mmm, that's probably it, I searched on google & found the same stuff. There were 2 types of problems, one with AOL & one with Macromedia but I couldn't see how it would affect Chromanator...now I see.

Okay i fixed my problem okay listen to the explaination because it's very strange !!

-Erase two files (don't ask me why but after that, it works !) DIRAPI.dll and IML32.dll, you can find these file in /Windows/system32.
Don't forget to erase these two files because the errors will stay again and again and chromanator won't start.

-Then uninstalled shochwave with the SPECIAL Shockwave Uninstaller you can find on internet and you uninstall Chromanator.

And reinstall everything again !

AND NOW IT WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORKKKKKKKS
Thank to timbuk2 to show me the path...
